Sunny Simple Sunday

It's that time. What are you all up to this weekend? We are in for another scorcher but I am not going to complain, at least out loud. I will enjoy the summer like temps and let my little one play in her pool a few more days. She just came running in all drippy and chilled. Now she has the right idea. Now onto the features:

Rachel's Junk in the Trunk showed the many uses of tule. From ghosts to tutus, even for adults. We have a shared love for tule. Maybe because I had an enormous tule skirt on my prom dress in high school. As with all things 80s, I had a very big and fluffy but gorgeous dress. I should find pictures. 

It's All Connected drew us all in with her gorgeous fall front porch. Hay bales and pumpkins oh my. This is so inviting and just welcomes you in for a cup of hot cocoa and some pumpkin pie.

Okay, and does anyone decorate for the holidays like Debbie? Debbie Dabble shared the most darling little red and white kitchen hutch. She proves you can mix orange and red. I asked that question this week for my own kitchen.

And the most viewed was A Sentimental Life with a sweet story about her family's ties to a house that has been in their family a very long time. It choked me up when I read it as saying goodbye to my parent's house after they passed was one of the hardest things I ever had to do. I now live in my husband's grandparent's home. My husband has been coming to this house since he was born. I totally get this post and love how she is the glue in the family. Every family has one. You know what I am talking about.

Okay link up and have a Simply wonderful Sunday.

So happy to be joining yet, another great Sunny Simple Sundays linky. I love the feature about the old house. Yes, we all have houses we remember, like I do my house in Astoria-Queens and it's still standing there, my brother sent me a pic of it. Have a happy Sunday.
