Knoxville artist Beth Meadows is painting a series of mason jars on salvaged wood. Her position as the architectural salvage coordinator for a non-profit focusing on historic preservation got her to thinking about preservation in all forms. Read more about her project here.
Pieces from The Preserves Series (including the two above) are available on Etsy. (We have one in our kitchen!)

For her husband's 40th birthday, Katie threw a laid-back southern picnic complete with yard games. How brilliant is this Twister board spray-painted on the lawn?! I wonder how long it took the grass to grow out.

How darling is this chambray shirtdress from Imogene+Willie in Nashville? It looks so comfortable and youthful without a belt. Unfortunately, it's no longer on the website, but here are some similar picks (both on sale!) from J. Crew, $79.99; and L.L. Bean, $59.99.

After inviting a few friends over for Sunday brunch, we didn't think anyone could make it. Therefore, I was still in my pajamas (with nothing on the table) when our friend Brian arrived with mixed fruit in hand.
According to Whole Living, scientists say that embarrassment evolved as a way to help people form strong bonds. That's an awfully sweet way to think of it as you feel your cheeks flush.
But it's true - we'll never forget the time we invited someone over to brunch only to end up going out to eat!
I'm curious, when was the last time you were embarrassed?

The parents of my friend's boyfriend live on a sheep farm in Pennsylvania. Her weekend visits involve white fences, green pastures and little woolly ones. It's close to perfect, especially in the fall. Getaways like this justify buying these, this and this.
