Can you believe a new living room rug for $249? – This past week I had the chance to visit my friend Nancy at her new (old) home. I wrote about Nancy’s art studio in this post and now she has a new studio with a water view! I wonder if she’ll be adding sailboats to some of her colorful abstract paintings? Nancy is so talented and with all the moves she and her family have done over the years, she knows exactly what to do when she moves to a new house! They painted the floors bright white and what a difference that made. They have lived in the house for less than three weeks and it feels so comfortable and inviting. They have big plans for renovations, but it seems perfect already. I noticed her rug and was surprised to find out that it’s from Target! I just ordered it for my living room. The 7′ x 10″ is $249 from Hearth & and from Magnolia. Our last rug had taken quite a beating with everyone home during the last year and it was beyond saving, this rug was exactly what I was looking for! (You can see it in the photo on the left below).

Hostess gift with easy DIY gift wrap
I always keep a few of my favorite Thieves dish soaps on hand for hostess gifts. Combine it with a pretty amber bottle (the label comes with it) and it makes a lovely gift. For easy gift wrap, use kraft paper or a lunch bag and a Sharpie paint pen or a chalk marker to draw a small jar or cup. Add a few garden flowers secured with twine or washi tape and you’re all set. You could add a pretty dish towel too!

Golden Lattes, but even better with this Golden Turmeric Supplement
I’ve been making golden lattes for a while and thinking I was getting the benefits just by adding turmeric. A new supplement from Young Living that just came out is a sweet mango rose turmeric powder and it makes the most delicious golden latte with nothing but warmed almond (or any nut) milk. And this supplement provides 24 times the bioavailability of regular turmeric. I used it in this smoothie too!
My friend Sheri and I were talking last week and somehow her icebox cake recipe came up! Oh my goodness! How did I not know about this for so long!? It takes only four ingredients and it really is THE PERFECT SUMMER DESSERT! So good!! Let me know if (I mean) when you make it!
I remember when the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale meant getting up early to make sure I got those Elefanten shoes, Saltwater Sandals, cute new backpacks, and all their school clothes for the fall and winter. Now I pretty much just shop for a few essentials. Like new Natori bras and maybe this shirt jacket…I’ve been wanting one since last year…or maybe the year before that. Looks like they are still a thing!
I can’t wait to see what Mary Ann and Cindy found this week! They are both traveling now or soon, but are sure to have put together a good list! Have a beautiful Sunday and let me know if you would like to try Golden Turmeric! All you will need to do is add milk!
