Hello, everyone! I know you all know it's summer, but let's think about something that we usually associate with summers (at least in the south!). Any ideas? It's lemon! Makes sense doesn't it? Sweet tea with lemon, lemonade, etc. Now here's another quirk about me---not a huge fan of lemonade (but I do like strawberry lemonade daquiris). My mom and dad always told me about how I like to suck on lemons when I was little, but you won't catch me doing it now! My mouth almost does like cartoon characters' mouths do--everything puckers up! I do like the smell of lemons, etc...just not lemonade, so I've opted to do a citrusy themed post this week! I hope you enjoy :)
Item #1 is from ThePennyPaperCo
I'm sure everyone is aware that enamel pins are the popular item to have right now! I can understand the popularity...I mean...they're pretty darn cute, and they can go on your clothes or on a bag of some sort (or maybe on your cork board?). This particular pin says, "Easy peasy lemon squeezy."
Too cute! It has gold enamel and a butterfly clip for the backing. Lots of pins to choose from! I'm also loving the llama pin :)
Item #2 is from PopOColor
I saw these pillow covers and immediately fell in love with them! The colors are so rich, and there's something a little bit retro about them. The patterns are large enough the each pillow cover will be a different portion of the pattern (I'm sure it's all gorgeous!). They come in a variety of sizes and you can get the pattern on both sides! That way you can just flip it and it will look like you've got a new pillow. The inserts are sold separately, but I will link you to them here.

I really love how simple and gorgeous this wreath is! It would look great on anyone's front door. I think doors need a little decoration because that's where you welcome people into your home and where they get their first impression. The striped ribbon also adds a nice flair. I can definitely see why the designer has been asked to recreated this one more than once! The colors go really well together and the texture is well balanced. Grab yourself a summer wreath and spruce up your home, and check out all of her other fabulous creations!
Item #4 is from SilverDollarCandleCo
Make your home smell nice, clean, and fresh with a lemon sherbet candle! Who doesn't love candles? I honestly, don't think you can ever have enough..haha. This is a 16 ounce soy candle with lemon top notes followed by lime, a bergamot (with a slight rose scent) in the middle, and a woodsy bottom note finish. Those smells sound amazing! How long do they burn you ask? 75-100 hours (awesome!) You can also add a short message on the top if you would like. These candles are a perfect gift for almost and person or occasion!
Item #5 is from AutumnbloomsbyKami
Lavender, Lemon, Honey. MMMmmm. I bet these soaps smell wonderful and are invigorating, yet soothing. All the ingredients sound familiar and include essential oils and goat's milk. She has several varieties in her shop worth checking out. The ingredients in this soap make it highly moisturizing and perfect for rough patches. We all have them, so why not admit it and get to moisturizing! Pamper yo'self!
That's all I've got for you today, my friends! I hope you've really enjoyed this post! Let me know what your favorite summertime drink is below in the comments. And, as always, please head on over to your favorite handmade site and show some artists some love!
Until next time,
