I’ve added L-Glutamine to my vitamin regime. It’s great for digestion. I noticed a difference day 1. Sluggy tummy no more!
I’ve been in a vintage-y decor mood recently. While garage sales are few and far between, Sr. Elizondo and I passed by one and a candelabra caught my eye. We left with a set of candelabras and a large peacock painting.
I finished the book Wise Blood. The story of a young man who is grappling with his faith in God and inadvertently becomes a preacher of a God-less religion. He meets a man with ‘wise blood” and other characters that symbolically represent his struggles.
Another wedding, another dress needed. I bought this one from NordyRack and it’s perfect for Cancun.
The best of the best, unexpected roses from Sr. Elizondo. My favorite is to break them up into multiple mini bouquets for around the house.
Pillow cover without a pillow. I rolled towels and put them in the pillow cover. It’s not perfect, but it works for now.
Window Valance. I have no sewing skills and couldn’t find a valance that I liked. I did find a kitchen towel at Crate & Barrel that I thought would work. No sewing was necessary. I just draped the towel over the rod. I might velcro the insides together, but maybe not.
An empty corner. I took the homemade bench we made for the end of the bed and stood it upright adding books and plants, etc.
And a couple of more common hacks: the throw over the chair is actually a blanket scarf and the plant on the table is in a spaghetti jar.
We’re making over our small garden this year. Frankly, it’s become a big mess with a grass area that we never use. We had decided on pavers, but then I saw these photos. Pattern tiles definitely take these outdoor spaces up a notch.
