And now for this week’s features:

A table setting decorated for the Kentucky Derby.I love watching the Kentucky Derby, and I know it was this past Saturday, but I still had to include this beautiful tablescape by Coco at The Crowned Goat. Her collection of vintage equestrian finds sets the tone for this setting. And even though red is the traditional color for the flowers in the KD, the neutrals she uses work wonderfully. 

Flower pots that have been painted to look like they have a zinc finish.Have you seen these flower pots with this faux zinc finish on them? Lisa from The Purple Hydrangea shares how she created this lovely look. I really can’t get enough of these.

Two chairs that have been updated with a new crisp white slipcovers.How about these white slipcovers? I love how Kippi from Kippi at Home redid her thrifted chairs in this beautiful white denim. Seeing this is perfect timing as I’m looking to reupholster a chair of my own.

Cabinet door turned into a chalkboard with hooks underneath.This cabinet door turned chalkboard is such a neat idea! Paula from Virginia Sweet Pea shares how she did this in a step-by-step tutorial. I love how the cup pull turned upside down creates a little bowl to hold the chalk. 

Shucked and un-shucked ears of corn sitting on a counter.I’m just going to admit this; I have an instant pot (still in the box) in my pantry that I have had for almost two years. And since corn on the cob is one of my very favorite summer foods this recipe from Susan at Crafting a Home has inspired me enough to pull out that instant pot and give this method a try.

  3. Thank you so much for the feature Kim! We are always on the hunt for equestrian finds especially trophies. They’re not always easy to come by so whenever we see one at a reasonable price we scoop it up. I could literally use them all over the house. Sending you hugs and thank yous, CoCo

  4. Thank you so much for featuring my Corn on the Cob in the instant pot. You really need to take it out of the box and start cooking :) You can dump & relax and leave the cooking to the Instant Pot. Check out my other recipes @
