THE INSPIRATION BOARD: Spotlight 272 & Feeling Fall

Summer is winding down and a lot of kids have headed back to school. Can you hear the collective sighs of relief from all the frazzled parents? My son starts back at the end of this month. It will be nice to have him back on a schedule but I’m gearing up for that frenzied pace. I also noticed this week that the evenings are cooler and there’s a crispness in the air in the morning. Yes, fall is around the corner and before you know it, the holiday season will be upon us.

HOME ROOM: Master Bedroom Makeover Final Reveal

Bedroom Makeover Final Reveal Side Table RosesOur master bedroom makeover is finally done. Group hug and high fives! It’s taken me months and months to complete this project because I have so few weekends to work on it. Between working full time, business travel, family and everything else, I had to wait until I took time off work to finish the final details.

DRESS CODE: Business Travel - Summer Fashion 50+

What I Wore July 2016-005In the past 13 months, I’ve traveled for business seven times. Each trip is a week long and I’ve documented a few of the trips in my Dress Code posts. I’ve mentioned this before but I’m a Senior Marketing Manager by day and blogger in the evenings and weekends. I’m lucky enough to work from home for my marketing job so I usually only dress up for work when I travel to the corporate office in Washington state.

Etceteras: Chippy Pedestal Tray

Coastal Decor Weathered Chippy Serving StandI’m loving my new coastal weathered pedestal tray. I started out creating this with the plan to make a sign. But I really don’t need another sign. Then it was going to be an jewelry holder. I couldn’t decide what to do with it so  I set it aside. Because I’m completely out of room, I placed the flat tray temporarily on top of another pedestal dish that I have in my craft room and inspiration struck. It would be perfect as a pedestal tray.
