    Friday Favorites – Recent Etsy Finds…

    Happy Friday y’all! Hope everyone made it through this heat wave unscathed. I’ve been trying to keep the plants alive and we finally turned on our sprinkler system this week to keep our grass from dying like last year… oops. I haven’t posted an Etsy roundup for awhile, so I thought I’d let you in on a few items I’ve been coveting lately. Enjoy and have a great weekend!

    01 – I love this stained glass bud vase from Fleeting Stillness. This would look really neat in a bathroom or on a sun porch.

    02 – Awesome Howlite Necklace from Sarah Safavi Jewelry

    03 – I love the color of these Peep-Toe Flats from TamarShalem in Israel.

    04 – This cute embroidered hoop art from Sometimes I Swirl

    THE SHUTTERS ARE UP!!

    Well, almost all of the shutters. I still have 5 more to go, but the ones on the front and east side of the house are up and they look great! I’m so happy with how they turned out. I think the gray looks like it’s always been there – in fact, I have a hard time even remembering what the white looked like!

    I think the gray shutters really help accent the green siding and tie in the dark roof to the overall color scheme of the house. And, we chose a softer gray with a green base which I think does the trick perfectly. Then, add in the dark brown mulch and green grass and everything really meshes well together.

    Remember where we were only a few short months ago?

    And here it is now…

    Things are going well outside – now inside is the problem… haha. More on our next big project later this week (we’re almost halfway done with it already!). But, I’ll leave you with our cute clematis that is doing so well out in front! Some gorgeous purple blooms are emerging and I love how it accents the colors on the house.
