Oh, summer feels like it is here! I am loving the weather in Connecticut. It is not as humid as back home. So, when it is in the 80’s it still feels lovely out! I am really falling in love with New England!! I have been pretty spoiled here in our summer rental with a pool and gym to use whenever I want. With the 4th this Friday, I feel like this will be the most memorable one for my family. We are headed to Mystic for our Independence Day celebrations.
Today, is recap day! So, today’s post is filled with the best of our June and what’s coming up for July. Every month, I like to highlight all the projects, plans, decor and happenings around here. Thanks for joining me on all our design and DIY adventures! In the immortal words of Fergie-Ferg, let’s get it started in here!
I made these DIY Border Curtains from Ikea RITVA panels for the Summer Style Soiree.
To add some style to our summer balcony, I painted our patio chairs with a design inspired by abstract art.
These DIY Paint-dipped Woven Pots are fun for your summer herbs and plants.
For a memento of our time in Connecticut, I made this DIY Embossed State Art and you can too with this tutorial.
Home is a little different these days. Our summer rental for June-August is starting to feel a bit like home. You can see our summer home tour to see where we are spending our warmer months. You can also get links to all the summer home tours there too.
You can still enter to win a HomeRight Heat Pro Deluxe II. This is the heat gun I used for my embossing tutorial and a must-have in our DIY arsenal!
I would also like to thank all my wonderful sponsors for our 2 Year Blog Anniversary Week of giveaways!!

I’d like to thank Delta Faucet Company for inviting me to their blogger event in Indianapolis. It was such a great time and I learned so much! You can read all about it here.
I also want to take time to thank these wonderful websites and blogs that featured my work in the month of June:

Haven! It’s just days away now! In just over a week, I will be joining many DIY/design bloggers at the Haven Conference in Atlanta, Georgia. This will be my second year attending and I can’t wait to reconnect with friends and make new ones too!
July will also bring another link party for the Summer Style Soiree. Our muse for July is Princess Diana. I can’t wait to see what you all link up! I just decided on my project the other day.
Tomorrow, I will be sharing some of our East Coast Adventures from our first month here.
