Yes, I know! I know! What is it about blogs that make it so hard to get back to them?
Let's face it. It is summer! Yay! There is the garden..... (though my hubby has been doing a wonderful job of keeping the weeds under control), lunch &/or dinner, often on the porches outside, weather permitting, etc., etc.
We fixed up the front & back porches for summer. Kind of a "his" & "hers" set up. "His" is very outdoor cafe style, table, chairs, hanging plants, bird houses, paper lanterns, candle in a mason jar with seashells, nautical touches here & there.
Okay, so maybe it isn't real masculine, but compared to my little cozy spot in the back overlooking the garden, it is definitely more comfy for a guy, but not so much I won't go there.... lol! I actually do a lot of my outdoor painting & art photography there too. But it is a nice spot when we want to dine out with out going out.
In the back, is my happy place! Definitely, feminine....sort of a "Beatrix Potter invited the bunnies, birds, & what not to a tea party" kind of spot. (And they DO, stop by!)
White wicker planters & side tables, rosy pink geraniums hanging, white petunias, & lavender & herbs in pots. White bistro table & pretty white matching cafe chairs. Vintage white tablecloth, fine china, teapots, teacups, seashells, soft tinkling wind chimes, more seashells, etc. Lovely vintage plates from England, Austria, etc. Who doesn't love strawberry shortcake on a beautiful piece of china? Watching "glitter"/lightening bugs at night drifting in and out of the garden alongside of the garden lights.....Oh...who can blame me for a little bit of a stay-cation?
Yes, it is finally summer....and if we don't catch a bit of it now....when will we? Winter was so long! Must indulge a bit in between editing & painting. Hope your summer is super lovely too!
Thank you so much for popping in!
P.S. Don't forget to stop by my shop on Etsy! I have done some work this summer! :)
