All’s Well That Weekends Well

A late week project opportunity came about at the last minute, and to say I’ve been otherwise engaged is an understatement.  No complaints, but I made a promise to myself and Dave the Builder I would stop and smell the roses, or in this case, magnolias this weekend.  My fingers may have been crossed behind my back just a wee bit, but I’ll do my best to take the weekend off.  After all, all’s well that weekends well.

Southern Magnolias make a beautiful “it’s the weekend” arrangement. Grab a crystal vase, silver bowl, mason jar or ironstone pitcher, fill  it with warm water ( yes, warm water) and add whatever fresh  flowers you wish.  It’s guaranteed happiness at home.  Fresh flowers and maybe a Margarita with Citrus Salt.  All the delicious details of this tempting recipe from Jad Driggers the chef, husband and Mr. Mom behind New South Food Company are featured over at  How to Decorate from Ballard Designs.

Still loving the Waterlogue app.  I am seriously considering having  personalized stationery made using this image.

Waterlogue (2)My nephew wrote these words down on notebook paper when he was eight years old.  His dad saved the scrap of paper in his wallet all these years.  When my nephew recently married, his dad took the piece of precious paper to the printers and had refrigerator magnets made for each member of the wedding party and family members.  A faded piece of paper with profound words from an eight year old boy made a priceless keepsake.

I hope your weekend is restful and full of joy.

Love your style!
