July in Review

Hello friends! I can’t believe July is coming to an end. We are having such a fabulous summer and I’m not ready for it to be over. I have just one more day left in San Diego before I head back to Seattle and Miss E and I are living it up at the pool. It has been so great to see friends and relax, but I have also missed the hubs and my K9 kid so much!

As we close out another month, here is a quick look back at the top posts on DDD this month. It was a busy one and there is a lot more in store for August!

I started by sharing all of the amazing pieces I received from my Grandma, so much history behind each of them.

Succulent Planter from Watering Can

Here is a little succulent planter I made from an old and rusted watering can.

Decorative Basket Wall

This Decorative Basket wall was made with inexpensive baskets, both vintage and new.

DIY Tray Transformation

I was about to throw away this old Crate and Barrel tray but gave it a makeover using paint, wood and stain! Click on the post to see the before.

Wine Crate PlanterLastly, I showed how I turned the old wine crate I got from my grandma into an elegant floral centerpiece.

Mini Pies with Raspberry Cream Cheese Filling

Looking for a bite size treat? I shared these Gluten-Free Mini Pies with Raspberry Cream Cheese Filling earlier this  month.

Gluten-Free Cherry Tart

I shared this Gluten-Free Cherry Tart, perfect for a summer evening (or any other time of day)!

And lastly, check out these delicious looking Chocolate Chip Cookies with Coconut Filling that Amanda from Bullfrogs and Bulldogs shared with us.
