The Pretty Project Party is back today and we can’t wait to see all the pretty projects you’ve been working on over the past month. But first, let’s check out what all of the hostesses have been up to this past month.

Just before the big move, Rachael gave her home one final “zhush” by adding a few simple summery touches and shared her summer home tour here. Since half-empty boxes stacked throughout their new home doesn’t allow for many blog-worthy photo ops, she’ll be starting to share inspiration posts and round-ups over the next few weeks of ideas that have started to brew. Stay tuned for new house updates coming soon!
