Weekend Simplicity

Weekend Simplicity

Welcome, Summer.  We’re glad you’re here.  Here’s a few highlights from the week.

Nobody loves a methodical post more than me so I’ve switched things up on Weekend Simplicity. Sorry, Andrea- I know you don’t like change. xo

Weekend Links:

Art Lessons for children (by grade) from Deep Space Sparkle (thanks, Edie!)

Looking for a fun AND educational summer activity with your kids? I’ve already downloaded this free copy of Egyptian Faces art lesson plan 

Artist Teil Duncan’s beautiful work is no longer a secret.

Finally, I love Big Mama’s take on the end of the school year

Fashion Find:

One word. Swoon.  While it would take years and thousands of lat pull downs at the gym to ‘pull this  off’ (sorry, swim suit humor) this Trina Turk one-piece is mighty purty.

Around the House:

Love Kristin’s tips on one lamp styling.  Incidentally, one lamp styling is my love language and I always love a good ‘how to’ guide.

Rach Parcell is a fashion blogger but if you follow her Instagram feed you are in for a real treat.  Her new home is absolutely gorgeous and if I ever win the Florida lottery, my dream house would look a lil’ something like this.

We are headed out on the boat again this weekend because that’s what summer means to us.  (That, and it’s one activity that caters to adults and children alike.)
