China Cabinet Re-do






















After several months of looking around for the perfect china cabinet for the booth I finally found it while browsing online one day. I purchased it right away, begged Mr. Beeutiful to go and pick it up and bring it home. There it sat in our garage, taking up Mr. Beeutiful's parking spot for months. I had envisioned being one of those ladies that transforms furniture having been found tired and worn looking into wonderful pieces of fashionable enjoyment (kind of like rescuing a puppy without having to feed it). While more days went by and more of Mr. B's suggestions of going down to paint went unnoticed, I still had the vision of cabinet perfection. I finally got the motivation to go paint one very hot evening while Master Beeutiful was at 4-H camp. Mr. B so kindly offered to help me with the painting machine thingy. Well, one gallon of paint, one broken air paint spray thingy and veiled threats of divorce later, my vision of perfection (not really) was complete. The first picture is what we found online and the last pictures are the completed cabinet over at the booth space. Mr. B & I are still happily married (after almost 20 years of marriage it would take a lot more than paint to bring us down) but have agreed that furniture rescuing may not be my strong suit. The puppy however, is being picked up on August 22nd.

Italian Inspiration






















While not quite yet autumn, late July always leads me to golden colors. As I staged out the tablescape I was setting up for the booth last weekend, I noticed all the colors and textures reminded me of a Italian feel. Mind you I've never been so lucky to actually have traveled to Italy, I think we all have a general idea (day dream) of what that would look like in our minds. The pictures above also drew some inspiration to the imagination. Let these help you with your day dream of Italian mid-summer days!

Ice Cream Party











Hosting an icecream party or ice cream social has got to be one of the most economical ways to entertain and hey, these days we could all use economical right? Whether for a birthday celebration or just a get together with family and friends, sending an invitiation makes the event even more special. The pictures above are from the following sources in order of appearance: Paper Style (image 1 & 2), Fine Stationery & Etsy.
Or if you have the time make your own invitations, which is great activity if you have kids to entertain this summer. I found this great site below with instructions on some adorable invitations.

Ice Cream

















Few things say summer like a good scoop of ice cream. Our families favorite ice cream store is Graeters. For a special summer treat nothing can beat a yummy waffle cone of chocolate chocolate chip! I found these great photos of ice cream on google images. Later this week I'll post photos from the booth, I just put out some adorable ice cream "theme" items today.
