Happy Friday 6/11/21

Happy Friday! How was your week? I’m finally feeling back to normal after a cold laid us all low for a week. After a year plus of isolation and wearing masks, I forgot what it was like to be sick. Ugh. So I’m back to washing my hands, not touching my face, and looking for natural immune boosters. Any suggestions?

Here are some fun links from the week...

How lovely is this Fire Island cottage? I’ve seen this beautiful house before but loved the longer tour! (cupofjo)

The pandemic enabled many woman to go gray. (newyorker)

On the blog this week I shared why we haven’t refinished our hardwoods in the kitchen. Can you relate?

My front-loading washing machine was getting kinda stinky so I emptied out the filter and threw in a couple of these washing machine cleaning tabs. I saw them on @thegoldhive’s stories and they work wonders! (amazon affiliate)

I went down the rabbit hole of @hadleywiggins11 this week. She’s the designer and antique store owner behind this incredible portfolio and all I can say is WOW! (hadleywiggins)

The best day of the week to sell your house on. Filing this under ‘good to know’. (zillow)

I’ve been procrastinating bedtime hard lately (just one more chapter…), so this article came at the perfect time: the lie we tell ourselves about going to bed early. (Atlantic)

The undeniable staying power of paint colors picked by our forefathers. Love these combinations! (theedit)

Love this new flowery and feminine swim collection. (rifle affiliate)

The colorful family home of Gray Benko is sure to make you smile. (I wouldn’t have picked that blue trim in her son’s room in a million years and I LOVE it!) (domino)

Hope you have a good weekend!
