I’ve been in Prince Edward County this whole week on vacation and it’s been so beautiful, so relaxing, with perfect weather. I’ve been posting a bit on Instagram and in my Instagram Stories, but I will do a blog post on it soon!

This 20% space rule makes so much sense, but is kind of blowing my mind.
My Favourite Pins This Week
I eat a lot of salads in the summer, and I love when they have fresh fruit (except apples, I really dislike apples in salads for some reason). The window for perfect nectarines is short, and it’s worth making the most of it – you could also sub in for peaches instead if you prefer. Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe with dressing can be found here.
If you love s’mores and are look for a really show-stopping summer dessert, look no further- I got you. this is the mile high s’mores pie, which looks like the most fun summer birthday dessert ever- imagine finishing off a meal with friends and presenting this gorgeous, still ON FIRE s’mores pie?! Amazing. Pinterest link is here, and the full recipe is right here.
I adore these Blackberry Socks- the little details of the photos are worth checking out, the berries are done with gold flecked yarn and they look amazing! Pinterest link is here, original Ravelry project page can be found here.
Love the sculptural look of big, dramatic leaves in a vase? Then I think you’ll like this DIY for adding a bit of copper foil (or gold or silver foil, if you prefer) to the foliage- faux foliage, of course! So if you have a black thumb, no worries- fake plants often look really convincing these days, it’s worth a look if it’s been a while since you checked out the fake flowers and plants aisle of your big crafts store. Pinterest link is here, and the full DIY can be found here.
This DIY for small gauge wire rings is so much easier than you would think, and the result is so pretty and delicate- perfect for gifts for friends, or making a whole bunch for yourself in every bead style and colour that suits your fancy. Pinterest link is here, and the original DIY is here.
