Summer Is……

June 20, 2011





The start of summer is almost upon us, and it is such a beautiful time of year. After the grey of winter and the delicate light of spring, summer brings such a warmth and vibrancy to our days.

No matter how your summer begins, I hope that it brings you a season full of long days, warm evenings, great food, vibrant color, and tons of fun.  


Round We Go

August 24, 2010

Late August is always a difficult time for me. Stuck in the rut of trying to be creative in my cooking and crafting in the middle of 90 degree heat is just an overwhelming exercise in futility.

This year, the last week in August in bringing about putting together all of the amazing crafting and creating that you are all sharing in Rhythm of The Home. One week from tomorrow the Autumn edition will be here, and it is hard to believe that the last edition in our first year has almost arrived.

Since my own work has been put on hold for just a bit, I thought it might be fun today to take a trip around this blog world of ours to share a few posts that have inspired me to get back into the kitchen and the sewing room, and to get some early holiday creativity going.
