Pretties Found In My Inbox

Thursday, October 1, 2015

Happy Thursday!  I haven't had much time this week to play on social media, but surprisingly I found some lovely things in my gmail inbox.  I thought I'd share them with you today.

This first photo is the stunningly beautiful Kitchen of the Year according to House Beautiful Magazine:

Don't you just love that pink island?  I know I do....I feel vindicated.  Here's our kitchen island:

I love the pretty entryway (below) all decked-out for autumn.  I even like the "blowing leaves" although I'd probably clean them up after about fifteen minutes.  Still, it's a pretty entry.

Tomorrow I'm bringing out our pumpkins.  Below is some pumpkin inspiration from my favorite online source for all things gardening, Terrain.

That's about it for today.  My lesson plan book awaits my attention (not to mention the scary mountain of laundry threatening to spill over into the kitchen).

Come back tomorrow for a scary Literary Friday!

Until next time...

  1. It's all very pretty. :) It's wonderful to have cool weather again!

  2. Scary mountains of laundry here too! My porch table is covered, because I let everything go as I was helping my sister pack up for a big move. School too.
    I really like your hair blond... you look so different...
    Pink is the perfect touch in your kitchen. xoxo Su

  3. your island is lovely..your kitchen looks beautiful and cozy:)
    I do love the way the leaves look on that last photo...we have cats so that wouldn't last long..haha!
    the shoes and that glass vase would probably die too...oh well, it's fun to look.

  4. I personally like your island better. The blue shoes just stand out in entry picture. I am not sure if I am going to decorate for fall this year. I have been so busy trying to remodel things I might just skip over it this year. Too many little projects right now.
