A Few Things to Share

It's Friday and I'm eating a donut and blogging - does it get any better than that. Do you have big plans for the weekend? I'm going down to see the artillery demonstration at Fort George - yep my third fort visit this summer - and, of course, Kate is part of the demonstration.  And according to the girl it is going to be epic!  

While I'm away watching muskets being fired and Kate marching around, here are three things I have to share with you:

First I am thrilled and honoured to have been included in the Bloggers' Budget Kitchen Tips post on the Canadian House and Home website. You can find the page here - chock full of great kitchen tips.

Anyone else notice how much the top kitchen photo looks like a snazzier version of our kitchen. Here they are side-by-side. White uppers and gray lower cabinets?  Check.  White beadboard backsplash?  Check.  Funny, eh?

I also wanted to draw your attention to a fun article on the Style at Home website about the ABCs of summer decorating (click here to see the page)  I have a personal soft spot for A, K, Q, and T - you will have to pop over and have a look to find out what they are.

And finally, Jennifer and her husband from the blog Rambling Renovator are writing a book about Blogger Style and are looking for homes to feature.  If you think your home might be worthy of being featured in the book, you should get in touch with Jen before September 15th.  You can find more info here.
