The girls are headed to bed and hubs and I are snuggling in for a movie but had to share some feels: I went to Target the other day and about had a meltdown in the aisle as I saw so much back-to-school stuff being put on display. πŸ˜₯ Don't get me wrong: my four little ladies drive me bonkers some days, but...I'm just kind of down about the summer beginning it's slow and sweaty transition into fall. The first half of my offspring will now be away from me every day, all day during the school week, and this mommy has ALL THE FEELS GAH!! 😩 Sigh. Anyway, I'm going to be soaking up as much time with them at home as I can, so if I'm a little slow to get back to you these next few summer weeks, you'll know I'm probably stuffed into this tent like a human sardine reading Charlotte's Web aloud and/or cramming myself into their inflatable pool filled with endless grass clippings that get stuck between my boobs...because SUMMER and TOO-OLD BABIES and ALL THE FEELS. πŸ˜­πŸ˜πŸ˜©πŸ˜‚

Hey friends, just a head's up that I'm taking a creepy creep Thursday feed creep break tonight---I had my face in my phone/computer/iPad (sometimes all three at once...!😳) most of last week to prep for the site/t-shirt launch, so I am going to spend my evenings with my fam this week. 😊 Let's get creepy next week...I think you guys are going to LOVE the theme next Thursday...! 😍

Hello from my she shed, #TheCottonStemCottage! πŸ‘‹πŸ» I'm out here working on a big e-design project for a sweet far-away client, and, even though this space is teeny tiny and dedicated to work, I still like to fluff it up with my pretties. πŸ˜‰ Wanted to share with you a couple of new items that made their way out to the she shed from Cynthia's shop @harperandarrowmarketplace! That ironstone pitcher and tiny vintage crock are so farmhouse-y yum, and...I know it's supposed to be a Turkish TOWEL, but I have been using it as a light throw out here when I snuggle up to work on my computer! (The shed is cooled by a cheapo wall unit...meaning it is EITHER blazing hot or freezing cold, no matter what's going on outside. πŸ˜‚) Anyway, Cynthia's shop @harperandarrowmarketplace is awesome, because, if you can't go pickin' for vintage for yourself, she does it for you! She finds the BEST stuff, you guys, plus the shop is ravamping and relaunching with some cool vintage products that I think you antique/farmhouse lovers would drool over, so go check her out today! πŸ™ŒπŸ»

So many things to love about this kitchen from Kaley @thelittlewhitefarmhouse!! 😍 The subway tiles, those adorable open shelves above the sink, THE SINK itself, and all of her perfectly styled farmhouse touches....love it all! πŸ™ŒπŸ» Kaley @thelittlewhitefarmhouse recently began her journey as an e-design biz lady, and I love chatting with her about the ins and outs...you guys go give her some love today! Kaley @thelittlewhitefarmhouse is for sure #onetofollow!

What up, buddies?! Okay, after a few requests for this idea, I've pulled together the best farmhouse style picks from what's going on at the Nordstrom sale! πŸ™ŒπŸ» I gotta say...a lot of their home decor is just WAY too fancy for this girl (see what I mean...? πŸ‘†πŸ» I use drop cloths as curtains. I'm not fancy enough. πŸ˜©πŸ˜‚), BUT!! I found a handful of seriously cute farmhouse-y style items on major sale, so check out my choices on the blog tonight! Link in IG profile or CottonStem.com! Can you guess which one made me laugh aloud? At myself...? πŸ˜©πŸ˜‚

Well, holy freakin' moly....is this a dream?! ✨🌿✨🌿 Nope. It's for real, and it's over on Jamie's feed @bluestonehill!! Like, this dreamy space is in her actual yard, and I need to borrow a trailer so I can go "borrow" this magical gazebo....mmmkay?! 😍 I can't get over how magical this spot is, and I know my four little girls would just be beside themselves to play in such a gorgeous space. So beautiful, Jamie! Go check out Jamie @bluestonehill today, guys! πŸ™ŒπŸ»
