THE INSPIRATION BOARD: Spotlight 265 and 10 Refreshing Summer Drinks

Happy Fourth of July to all of you in the U.S. I hope you’re enjoying the long 3-day weekend and are doing something fun today. Backyard barbeque, fireworks, and maybe later some s’mores – sounds perfect to me.

Our little senior dog is so scared of the fireworks we usually stay in and make sure stays calm. After years of suffering, I found some wonderful natural anxiety drops that seems to really keep her calm. And speaking of our dear dog Sammy, she snuck into some of my pictures this week. She insisted on laying on the new rug while I was shooting my bedroom makeover. So in case, you missed it, here’s what I’ve been working on and sharing lately.

And now for the projects featured this week.
