Every once in a while, I compile a list of things that don’t necessarily need their own post, but they are fun/entertaining/informative and worth sharing. So here I am, getting it all out. I actually kinda like these random posts – they feel like a conversation we might have if we were sitting together over a cup of coffee. Here it goes …
A few of you asked about the cover on Audrey’s box spring.
All it takes is a few yards of fabric or a curtain panel to wrap around and fake the look of a real box spring cover.
I’ll be traveling with Noonday & IJM to Rwanda this summer (here’s the announcement post if you missed it) and we’re in stage two of a contest to bring one more lady with us! You can vote for your favorite every day until June 9th. Can’t wait to find out who will be coming!
One of the things I’ll need on the trip to Rwanda are long (past my knees) dresses. Maxi dresses have been in for a few years, but in true Emily-fashion, I’m just now jumping on the trend. A few new dresses have been ordered and I’m surprised that I actually like them. Especially these from the Gap (which, unfortunately, are nearly sold out).
Peonies are so pretty.
Tomorrow I’m part of a Summer Tour of Homes hosted by Gina at The Shabby Creek Cottage. Blog home tours are fun because you get to see so many different decorating styles and a million great ideas with every click. My friend was over yesterday and we joked that my house was nowhere near photo-ready with the boxes of Costco purchases on the kitchen counter and the kids’ crafts covering the table and playdough specks stuck to the floor and unfinished pillows waiting to be sewn. We’ll see how things come together …
This article is so good. Written by a friend from college and it’s perfect motivation for summer with the kids.

And that is all. All the random things.
