Touches of Yellow

Good morning! I hope your week is going well. It's the last day of public school, so I'm sure our door bell will be ringing non-stop for the next 2 months! We are keeping up with a few subjects (math, grammer, reading) and we also have swim lessons, Boy Scout day camp (the girls can also go, too) and a trip to visit Grandma and Grandpa in Rhode Island to look forward to.
Dining room
Today, I'd like to share a few touches of yellow (my favorite color!) in my kitchen/dining room area. Some of you may remember the walls used to be yellow, but I painted them a more neutral color this past fall.

Tea towels
Sunflower tea towels.

Kitchen soap
We visited my friend Revee and her girls last week and she had these wonderful old fashioned soap bottles in her kitchen. I stopped by Target on the way home and picked up a few for myself.

Kitchen soap
It doesn't suds up as much as I would like, so I will refill the bottles with a different soap once they are empty.

Kitchen soap
I also have a bar of Lemon Poppyseed soap on a teacup saucer. Doesn't it look good enough to eat?

And finally, pretty handmade dishcloths, a gift from my mom.

Thank you for stopping by for a visit!

Welcome June!

Hello! Happy first day of June! I hope you all are doing well. In the last month and a half we have finished up with Boy Scouts, Faith Keepers, Spanish and Creative Writing classes. We are having temperatures in the high 90's, so summer is definitely here!

We had friends and family over for Memorial day. In the morning I went to the grocery store for a few things and found these beautiful peonies. They were completely closed, but within a few hours had bloomed.

Phillip got a new grill for his birthday/early Father's Day, so he grilled burgers, hot dogs, and chicken. I made potato salad, macaroni salad, and we also had artichoke dip, chips and humus, and watermelon.

For dessert, we had strawberry and blueberry shortcake and I also made these fun jello cups for the kids.

Thank you for stopping by for a visit, I've missed visiting with you!
