Summer pillows for naps on the daybed...
My mother recently gave me this red and white vintage tablecloth that belonged to my grandmother, Evelyn (one of this blog's namesakes).
A few weeks ago I took photos of the remaining flowers from Fifi's visit. They lasted quite long and always made me smile as I passed by, thinking about that wonderful day:
Lastly, I wanted to share with you a simple project I worked on recently to add some spring cheer. Many of you know that dear blogging friend Michelle has a keen eye for treasures. Well, she was able to salvage a group of shutters that her neighbor was getting rid of and gave one to me. They were forest green to start, but I painted mine a chalky white, then added fabric to the back of the candlestick cut-out. I simply attached fabric to cardboard, with some felt on the back (to hide the ugly cardboard), then used double-sided tape to attach it to the back of the shutter.
Here's a close-up of the fabric behind the cut-out. This fabric was also a gift from Michelle and blends in perfectly with the living room. Thank you, my friend!
Hope you all are enjoying your summers so far. My children are out of school, and we're keeping busy while enjoying the great weather.
I'm joining in at these lovely parties:
