Yes, I know it’s hard to believe, but…I FOUND AN ANTHROPOLOGIE DRESS AT A GARAGE SALE FOR $3!! The best part? The tag was still on!! What a rare find…can’t wait to wear it this fall with my boots!
Saw this on the Echoes of Laughter blog. Angie made it by recycling a holiday Starbucks cup and finishing it with scrapbooking supplies. As she posts:

“I love this little project because it costs almost next to nothing to make…..a recycled coffee cup, some scrapbook papers and a few embellishments,” says Angie about this project.
Thanks for the great tutorial Angie!
So yes, I’m blatantly bragging. My husband’s step-sister has been an aspiring actress since a young age. I remember in high school how excited she’d get about being a thespian down to modeling for local schmocals. Now we all had someone like that from our hometown, right? And how many of those aspiring actors actually make it somewhere?
Well, she is making it somewhere. Last week she was featured on the Desperate Housewives episode, “Truly Content.” She’s coined as the pretty blonde that young Parker Scavo is trying to flirt with. And she’s beautiful. Although it’s just a quickly panning scene, she steals the spotlight–even if it only lasts a few seconds.
We’re extremely proud of her. Here’s to following your dreams, no matter how distant they may seem at the beginning!

One of my most favorite parts of home-owning is going into the backyard and handpicking flowers. A past owner of our home poured a lot of time and sweat in packing our yard full with lilies, bee balm, phlox, roses, and more. Each week has been a delight to see what surprises were left behind by past owners for our enjoyment. I gathered this bouquet today, inspired by the first blooms of phlox. I have a patch of unruly sage growing and often throw it into my arrangements. I also clipped some evergreen from our cypress bushes. My grandmother has always put together the most beautiful flower arrangements from the multitude of plants she tends. I can only hope this one makes her proud.
