Buttercup Cottage, Decluttering Ideas + More: Friday Finds

It’s hard to believe this is the last Friday in June. Summer always moves too quickly. The hollyhocks and lavender are blooming in the garden and the waterlilies have made their appearance in the pond. The frogs are singing out there and now we have a pair of chipmunks that like to run around the rocks surrounding the water garden. Even the birds are getting brave and bathing in the shallow end while we’re sitting out there. It’s so much fun to watch.

Today I’ve got an English cottage to tour, ideas for de-cluttering your home for summer, and more great inspiration!
