Friday: Super Score.

Practical Matters.

my new ironing board cover.

I know.  It's exciting.  My vintage wooden ironing board got some new duds this weekend.  It needed to happen first.  Because I have a ton of things I need to make and, really, using a towel over the board each time was a bit of a drag.

We took a quick trip over the holiday weekend to our friends' home (which we call the Farm, but they don't farm anything.  It's more like 60 acres of lush rolling prairie where we let the kids and dogs run free.  If I had to go somewhere for a month and recover from something, this is where I'd want to be.)

The view from the kitchen window (taken last year, but it's still the same):

This is the fireplace where we make smores at night.  This porch has some pretty views, too.

The older girls discovered fondant and made a Memorial Day cake for us to enjoy:



We left for home feeling very, very blessed.

Hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend, too...



what a beautiful landscape. gorgeous!


I LOVE that print on the ironing board!


new to your blog and loving it! i wish i had that view from my kitchen window...i get to look out into my neighbors kitchen window now! haha.


As always, gorgeous photos. The Farm looks incredibly refreshing!


that sounds wonderful!


Pretty board cover. Mine is just practical. Completely practical. And store-bought. Functional, though.

Sounds like a lovely trip to the farm.


Hey Chris!!!! :) I've been gone for way too long. Sounds like you had a lovely weekend. Can you believe that I forgot to pick up the camera this weekend??? What has the world come to?


Well, I hope you never have to recover from anything, but you know if you do you are welcome on my porch anytime! Oh, and I love the dresses. You think they make pillowcases in my size?
