August in Review

Here is what you may have missed at Sweet Parrish Place in August.  Ya know, just in case you are new around here, or for whatever reason, you weren't sitting by your computer every day just waiting for my latest post to come out.  Ha!

While preparing for my daughter to move into her first college apartment, I came up with some inspiration along the way.  College Dorm/Apartment inspiration and organization


I laid my brown paper floors in the summer of 2013, so I thought I would give you an update as to How my brown paper floors are holding up

I spray painted some magnetic letters.   These letters have been on this door in my laundry hallway, and my son still plays with them, so I thought they could use a refresh.  

I shared part 2 of our experience hosting a foreign exchange student.  You can also read part one here.

My oldest child and only daughter went off to college, and school began for my other two- first grade and high school! I share a snippet of how I was feeling about all of these changes.

I shared my favorite Pinterest pins for July, and I loved them all!  Stay tuned for my favorites of August!

I made a DIY chicken wire jewelry frame.  I think this just might be one of my favorite Trashtastic Tuesday moments!


And last but not least, I shared my weekly outfits with you here, here, here and here.

I hope to be back next Tuesday with a new Trashtastic Tuesday post for you, so stay tuned for that!  How are you feeling about saying goodbye to August?  Are you ready for fall yet?  I am trying to get there, slowly but surely.  I need to get out my fall decor to get me in the mood!
