Weekend Whimsy

I took a break last week for the holiday weekend from weekend whimsy.  We had a party of 24 people and it was fun fun fun! and busy. This week I’m back with new links.

I LOVE this remodel that Chip and Joanna of Fixer Upper did.  They took a ranch style house and turned it French Country.  Do you guys what Fixer Upper?  It’s my current favorite home reno show that’s on right now.

Are you planning on going to a picnic this Summer? Here’s a round-up of the cutest picnic baskets.  I will take one of each, thank you!

While we were busy celebrating our Independence from England this past weekend, the British Royals were busy christening the brand new baby Princess Charlotte.  If you missed the pictures, check them out here.  If you’re not a fan of the royals, at least check out the baby pram!

I found a cupcake round-up of 23 cupcakes inspired by other desserts... like churros, thin mint cookies, reese’s pb cups, neapolitan ice cream… go take a look, looking is calorie-free! 

Last but not least:  There is a preschool that is located inside of a nursing home.  I think this is such a great idea.    It keeps the elderly mind active and a 2 year old can learn a thing or two from an 80 year old – even if they are demented. Watch the video and you’ll too be convinced that more places should do this!  The link is to the documentary film about this special place.

    Enjoyed the ranch makeover. And yes–I loved seeing the photos of Princess Charlotte's christening. (A few years ago, we saw Prince Charles in a parade at Buckingham–and a little foot soldier fainted from the heat (sweltering summer in London), so I adore the royals. BTW, did you see the recent clip of Prince Phillip, dropping the F-bomb during a photoshoot? Prince William was there and looked puzzled for a moment, then he grinned, as if to say, Oh, well, time for Peepaw's meds. 🙂 Have a great weekend.

      I like the Royals too, well, I'm not sure if I'd want them leading my country but I like reading about them nonetheless! I did see that video… It makes me think Prince Phillip has a foul mouth all the time and probably talks like that at home… The question is, does he do it around the Queen? And agreed, Prince William was like okay Grandpa, time for a nap! We were in England during the Queens Diamond Jubilee and totally had Royal Fever. It was so much fun celebrating her long reign!
