I can hardly believe we are already into August.
Before long the posts here will be about fall decor and great recipes for chilly nights.
It has been so hot and dry this summer that I am actually looking forward to September.
In the meantime these were some of the notable posts from this past week.
shared with us her updated patio furniture. Instead of buying new cushions she found a handsome fabric and created her own.
showed us how to make these super simple pillows out of napkins. Like she says, if you can sew a straight line you can make these little lovelies but for more info be sure and stop by her blog.
must be thinking ahead to fall too or maybe like me she has eaten a lot of salads lately. Whatever the reason I thought these stuffed turkey rolls looked easy and delish. I might skip the gravy because I am not a huge fan and it would cut the calorie count but I will be adding this to my recipe board for sure.
posted this footstool that she recovered and then transferred a graphic pattern she found on the internet onto the fabric to create this fabulous shabby chic look. Her post has a great tutorial to show you how to create one of your own.
needed a place to hang some of her necklaces so she created this jewelry hanger out of an old moving box and a dress that she was taking to the Goodwill. I am always looking for jewelry storage ideas and thought this might be an issue for some of you too.
If you are looking for a lower calorie and healthier option brownie to satisfy your sweet tooth then this 190 calorie option from

Then again, sometimes you just want that full on brownie. During those times this brownie recipe from
with its melted marshmallows and chocolate frosting is probably what you are looking for.
