Just a tablecloth update here.

I had to settle for the fine selection at Target as I am ballin’ on a budget. But I like it! I think a tablecloth is necessary for a pleasant outdoor dining experience, especially since this table is grody to the max underneath it. Mmmm…dinner on the porch, anyone?


herb your enthusiasm

In the spring I planted an herb and veggie garden on our balcony. I certainly don’t have a green thumb as every plant I’ve ever tried to keep alive has dopped dead despite my awesome efforts. I’m actually pretty awful; I left them in their tiny original planters for weeks until I finally manned up and bought pots and soil during their last hours of life. With lots of luck love and attention, they’ve since recovered  and even though this Kentucky summer heat makes it difficult, these babies are doing good so far (when I remember to water them.) Still haven’t gotten any veggies but the basil is downright sinful.  I’m so proud.

Now if only I knew how to cook.

summer kind of wonderful

I’m astounded and a bit disgusted at how quickly summer’s approached, and I haven’t even thought about getting my porch in shape. The main thing it needs right now, besides a good scrub-down, is a colorful, graphic tablecloth covering the dusty glass patio table. Here are a few I’ve found that I’m loving.

Now y’all know how much I gravitate towards gray. And geometric patterns. Love at first sight. This one is from Belle Chambre.

Can I just have all of these? Alicia’s Table has really awesome tablecloths and linens. And they’re all badass. Every single one of ’em.


Here’s a pretty cool one from Texturas Urbanas. She also sells matching pillows and seriously cute bags, to boot. Love all her stuff.

Now I just need to save up some money to revamp my porch…quickly, before summer fades away! What do you still need to do in order to bask in all of summer’s glory? I wanna know!
