What’s Been Happening
Oh, friends, I know we aren’t the only place that is sweltering…but man, it certainly takes all the fun out of Summer for me!! I am not good with weather extremes… either too hot or cold!! You would think after living in New England my entire life I would have adapted but I still complain!!!
But the hot month of July did wonders for all of my flowers in the garden!! You can check out two different garden tours that I posted this week!
My veggies have been on the struggle bus this Summer (except my tomatoes), luckily I have an awesome farmstand around the corner from me to grab fresh goodies!!
How cool is this, Wake Robin Farm has been farmed by the same family for 300 years and is currently being farmed by the 14th generation!!
I picked up an orange watermelon! First off I’ve never heard of one and second it was amazing!! I can’t believe that such delicious melons can grow up here in New Hampshire.

To beat the heat I made a Target run to check out the new merchandise coming in for Fall. I like to be able to see the products in real life before I recommend them to you all.
The Fall Hearth & Hand with Magnolia line dropped last week. There are some really nice additions! I found some of the prices all over the place though…some things that I thought were going to be pricey weren’t and vice versa. I wasn’t impressed by the artificial stems and flowers though…they were kinda plasticky.
Here are a few of my favorites from the new Fall line:
Also, check out your local store even if the website is showing that items are unavailable…so many things I was trying to link for you are showing out of stock in my store and online…but they are right there in that picture!!

This Week On The Blog…
This week I shared my Cottage Garden Summer Tour. Just about all of my flowers have started blooming.
Oh, I love this time of year!!
You can also check out my Summer perennial gardens. They are thriving in our Summer heat!
Yes, we are all sweating to death but it’s nice to think about Fall right now!!
I was scrolling Amazon the other day checking out some things for an upcoming project and I went down the rabbit hole of pretty Fall things!!
I found some super affordable Fall home decor items!
As Summer winds down you will start to notice the flowers on your hydrangeas will start to change color and become more papery… which means it’s time to cut and dry them! Dried hydrangeas are the perfect accent for your home in the Fall season.
Check out my super easy method to dry hydrangeas that keeps their shape!!
What to do with those dried hydrangeas??? I have a couple of good DIYs that are pretty easy too!!
I used a magnolia garland as the base for this Fall Hydrangea Garland. It only took 20 minutes to put together too!
This Hydrangea & Pumpkin wreath was only $9 to make! $1 square metal wreath form from the Dollar Tree and 8 $1 mini pumpkins from The Christmas Tree Shops
I think it took me 10 minutes to put it together!!
For another Super Easy (and free!!) DIY Hydrangea Wreath check out this one from Stacy at Bricks N Blooms

What a clever use of vintage bedsprings!! I love the natural and organic look of this wreath created by Wendy over at WM Design House.
