50 Favorites for Friday #221

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a good first week back to school (or second or third, as I know some places go back very early).  Ours was good but hectic. My fun news is that I’m helping my dad redecorate his family room.  And my coffee table for the living room is supposed to ship from CA tomorrow- yay!! Enjoy, and have a great weekend!
PS.  I struggle with whether to post my thoughts about news events and things on this blog, and usually decide against it because it is a decorating blog. But of course I am thinking of all of the men and women who gave their lives on 9/11 fourteen years ago, and the so many who have served, protected, and defended us since then. I know that includes so many families here, and you are in my thoughts and prayers today and every day.
