I hope you have had a good week.

Now that August is almost over. This upcoming week is kind of a turning point as we all get back into our groove as we say goodbye to summer.

As I have mentioned before, I have taken the summer slow and have been focusing on back-end blog work. It feels good to have tackled the major items I needed to update.

I still have more to do, but have organized what needs to be done by using Airtable. Do you or have you used it? I am getting the hang of it, but still have not mastered it. If you use it, do you have any tips that made learning or organizing items in it easier?

This week I will be sharing a fall DIY’s that I hope inspire you in getting your house all comfy cozy ready for the fall season.

For the month of September, I am trying out a new SEARCH feature here on the blog. You can access it by going to SEARCH on the top right of any post or page any typing in what you are looking for. You can also access it by tapping on the pink magnifying glass on the right side of your screen.

If you use it, I would love to hear what you think of it, or if you preferred the the previous way I had search set up when looking for a certain post or topic.

Now as I begin to get myself ready for September, I hope you’ll find something among the links below that inspires and brightens your day.

Posts You May Have Missed This Week

Now onto the links…

Decorating

A builder grade home that is filled with charm.

A nice design portfolio of homes. I like the exterior of the Stone Farmhouse the best.

A smaller Craftsman style home with lots of nice details designed by the same architect mentioned above.

A very cozy and organized pantry.

DIY

A colorful candle holder.

I like this plant stand.

This idea is one easy way to use book pages to decorate for fall.

No more need for an ugly pet or baby gate when you can make this.

Food

I am going to make this, but leave out the sugar.

Semi-homemade breakfast treat for a crisp fall morning to go with your coffee.

If you go apple picking this fall. Baking some this way looks good.

Reading

For all my plant-based eating readers, I just bought this cookbook that is filled with doable recipes without any fancy or hard to find ingredients.

Watching

I have an Amazon Prime account and enjoyed Season 1 of A French Village, but not the fact that to watch Season 2, you have to pay another fee. Then Season 3 is free again with Prime acct. Urgh-hhh! Does stuff like this frustrate you to?

On Netflix, I just started watching The Chair. Earlier in the week I watched Poms with Diane Keaton. It wasn’t the best movie – just OK.

Fun & Interesting

Seeing these from a different angle makes them look even more impressive.

Something To Think About

You don’t have to do that.

  1. disturbing effect from clicking your link to airtable – my computer screen has gone dim/dark and certain lines and columns are gone. I have tried to troubleshoot but have had not success. Suggest others DO NOT try to open airtable link.

    1. Hi Ellen – I am sorry that you had a problem with the link to Airtable. Where you able to get it fixed? With so many different configurations of tech, apps, programs and more on our computers, it is hard to say exactly what happened. I have checked the link over since I received your comment by having other readers, family and friends all over the country with different computers, browsers and internet companies use the link to see if they experience the same problem you did, but none did. I will try to troubleshoot this more. If I find out anything, I will email you. Again sorry that this has happened to you. It is no fun when our computers have a problem.

  2. Hi Diane,

    Another wonderful Sunday email from you that I always look forward to. The above link from “Successful Steps” really resonated with me this week. Thank you for that.

    Mary
    P.S. Totally agree with your frustration regarding the sneaky methods Netflix, Amazon Prime, et al use to try to get you to buy more subscriptions! Not fair!

  3. I always enjoy seeing what you uncover each week. I really enjoyed the various different kind of houses and it’s always so much fun to see inside them. I love to see how others live. I wanted to mention the Virgin River books are a great read. They are on Netflix but the books are the way to go. Have a great week.
