I hope many of you are able to enjoy the day off as part of a long holiday weekend!  I’m spending my Monday at the airport, so of course there’s no better way to pass the time than blogging.

Yesterday, I dropped my son off in New Hampshire at a five-week summer program that is going to be immensely challenging and fun.  He’s with hundreds of kids from all over the US and the world (I think they said there are 53 different countries represented), and I know it’s going to be the experience of a lifetime.

On a related note, I just have to give major props to all of our northern friends who DO NOT HAVE CENTRAL AIR CONDITIONING.  I know that it’s not hot for as long up north, but it still can get ridiculously hot during the summer months, and y’all just turn on your window fans and suck it up.  I am wilted after my day without AC!  You all are a thousand times tougher than I am and I am admitting it in writing!

Later this week I’ll be sharing photos from my master bedroom, but today I wanted to let you know about a few huge sales that are going on, because you can get the best price of the year on items that we share all the time on the blog.  For example, {this console table} that Amy loves in her entry way is $209.99 (regularly $299.99) plus an extra 10% off AND free shipping with coupon code SUMMER.  I promise, it doesn’t go any lower than that!

Next up is the beautiful aqua and pink duvet cover in my daughter’s room. It’s absolutely stunning and she’s had it for about six years now, because it’s such a chic and timeless print.  The quality is excellent, and right now it’s 25% off with coupon code HAPPY4TH.  (If you happen to miss the sale, sign up for their emails to get a 15% off coupon).

One of the most versatile pieces in my home is this grey tufted bench.  It’s perfect at the dining room table or at the foot of the bed, or it can double as a coffee table.  I bought mine at HomeGoods, but I recently found the exact same one online at Target for a comparable price.  If you use coupon code AMERICA, you’ll get an extra 15% off.  And if you have a Red Card, you’ll get another 5% off plus free shipping, making it about $130.

Antique Farmhouse is one of our go-to sites for great fixer upper type styles, and they’re having a big sale right now.  I also saw that they’ve restocked on this rustic Savannah chandelier; I never see it much lower than $800 elsewhere and so it’s a great deal right now at $448.

If that’s too rich for your blood, then their 2-tier wire dish rack is in my cart at $34; my counter space is at such a premium that I think this will work for both drying dishes and displaying them.

I know these aren’t home decor items, but these lemon shorts have been my go-to pair this season and they’re 50% off right now using coupon code SPARKLER.


And since they’re such a good deal, you should pick up this pair that’s also 50% off; I bought mine two years ago and they are still one of my favorites! (If you’re in between sizes on either pair, size down).

Last but not least, if you’re a frequent shopper at Nordstrom like we are, then you might be interested in their current promo.  You can earn $10 to spend at their upcoming anniversary sale later this month (or $20 if you get their store credit card, which will also give you early access to the sale).  Details are {here}.

In case you don’t know why we love Nordstrom so much, here are a few reasons:  free shipping and free returns (all the time), amazing sales, a huge selection, and top-drawer customer service.  For example, last year I bought a Kate Spade watch from them to give as a gift, and when it arrived, the battery was dead.  I didn’t have time to send it back and get a new one, so I contacted customer service.  They sent me to a local jeweler to get the battery changed and reimbursed me.  That’s the kind of thing they do as a matter of course.  I’ve been shopping at Nordstrom since the early 90’s and they’ve never disappointed me.
