It’s Friday, High Five!


Holy cow guys, we’ve had some weather here in South Carolina, rain, rain, and more rain. I don’t think the rain stopped for a single minute all last weekend and into Monday. Unfortunately all this rain has lakes and rivers overflowing their banks and many in the region are still struggling with flood waters. We are having to boil our water and the kids have been out of school all week (which they think is a high-five.) We were very blessed not to have any flooding at our house but not everyone has been so lucky. There are not many high-fives to this story other than seeing the community come together and help those in need. The other high-five is that since the storm passed on Monday the temperatures have been cooler and the sun has shined everyday. This week we’ve had the most beautiful weather since I got to South Carolina. Let’s have a high-five for it staying that way for a while so the area can start putting things back together again.

Here are a few other rays of sunshine for the week…


1. Stylist, blogger and design star Emily Henderson has a new book called Styled. The book releases next week but My Domaine gave us a little sneak peek, like the photo above from Jessica Helgerson’s living room. I think it’s time to pre-order.

2. I can’t say I miss my days as an apartment dweller but this video by Above Average created to help imagines what your upstairs neighbors are really up to is hilarious.

3. Melbourne-based designer and jeweler Britta Boeckmann is making the most beautiful wearable art from fused wood and resin. You can find her pieces at her Etsy shop BBold

4. This week Calling it Home has started a new One Room Challenge. I will be taking the challenge with my new sewing room along with almost 200 other bloggers and their challenging rooms. Be sure to head over and check out everyone’s progress each week.

5. With the weather cooling off I am starting to get excited for fall and these Lucky Brand boot are calling my name.


Have a great weekend,
