Happy Sunday everyone! We have started to plant our little courtyard garden and I couldn’t be happier. Looking at dirt is a little depressing! Today I am joining Annie and Mary Ann for our Sunday favorites. Let’s take a peek at my Sunday favorites Garden, Cote de Texas, Brunch & Farm Rio Fun.
How to Host an Outdoor Grilled Summer Brunch from Better Homes and Gardens
This post on how to host a grilled summer brunch from BHG is full of fun. From grilled donuts to a pretty bloody mary bar, there is something for everyone!

Martha Stewarts Best Paint Colors to Upgrade your Front Door
I stumbled upon this article on best paint colors to upgrade your front door from Martha Stewart while researching front door/shutter colors. This house has the same green trim as my former home. I think it is time for an update. I am loving lichen from Farrow and Ball. I hope it isn’t the same color that I picked out for my son and daughter in law? If it is I may have to keep looking! You might enjoy my post on Four Steps to Amp up Your Curb Appeal, where I featured my daughter’s fun yellow front door.
Outfit of the Week
My post on wide-leg pants for women over 50 is proving to be one of my most popular posts ever. When I spotted these Farm Rio pants from Anthropologie, I had to create an outfit around them. The J Jill linen shirt is $29.99 and comes in many other colors. Love a hat with a strap, the andres assous sandals are fun, and I love the Sundance earrings (which I own). They are small but make a statement. I don’t think this outfit needs accessories that shout. It is shouting on it’s own. All items are linked below (except for the shirt which wouldn’t let me it is linked above.)

Life from Bellaterra Garden Obelisk Tutorial
My virtual friend Mary, lives on a historic estate in Phoenix. She loves gardening and entertaining. She had a great tutorial (actually from Sunset Mag) on how to make a Garden Obelisk. I don’t know how many times I have been asked for that very thing. My friend Jim (who passed away way too young a few years ago) made me two for my birthday one year. They are among my most treasured possessions. I am trying to figure out how to use them in my new town garden, stay tuned.
I love Mary’s which is painted blue as well.
SUPER SALES THIS WEEK
If you love linen like me, you might want to check out J Jill their linen big shirts are on super, super sale here. (as in $29.99) I ordered the lavender and the red.
If you love eyelet (I do!!) these shirts are $32.99 at J Crew.
I think we were supposed to do Fathers Day Gift Ideas (I forgot) this week but it was too late when I remembered! I will include Steve’s Fathers Day Picks in my Tuesday post. I will be joining Sarah and Kim for our Signature Style post on Resort Wear. Kim is in Hawaii and I am going in September so this post should be a lot of fun.
