July in Review

Can you believe that my summer break is over already?  I go back to work on Monday!  I have had 6 weeks off (if you don’t know, I am a middle school counselor).  I feel like this summer flew by faster than ever, I didn’t get half the things done that I wanted to accomplish.  But one thing I did do was spend lots of quality time with my family, and that is what will matter more than anything else in 5 years from now, right?  So, in case you are new around here, this is what you may have missed in July.  I got up bright and early today and went yard sale-ing, our town is having a community wide yard sale, so I picked up a few treasures, including some old bottles, a chandelier, and a Dooney Bourke Bag, among other things.

Trashtastic Tuesday- DIY Painted Doormat


Thanks for stopping by today, I hope if you are new here that this post helped familiarize you with what Sweet Parrish Place is like.  If you are a regular reader, I hope you were able to get all caught up with what you may have missed in July.  I hope that whether you are a regular or are maybe visiting for the first time, you will stick around to find out what August has in store! I just got a new camera, and am learning to use it.  I did my first photo shoot with it yesterday, and even though I barely know how to use it, the pictures still turned out better than the ones I was taking with my old camera, so I am thrilled to finally have a big girl camera!

Do you have champagne taste and a tiny budget like me?  Love fashion, DIY, crafting, all things vintage and thrifty?  Stick with me, I've got you covered!
