My August kitchen window is in it's natural state...it's catch all mode. In other words, I didn't do a thing to it. I just put things I like in this window as the days pass. Rather than "stage" this is how our window looks this month.
I recently found this quote (I was told it is from a country song, don't know who wrote it or sang it) and since it is the very essence of what we think about our little home, it's perfect for the window. It's been hanging there for weeks and I still enjoy reading it.
Dried roses from my anniversary flowers...thirty three years on August 8th. They were too pretty to toss.
Fruits of the season...complete with leaves...a hint of autumn.
Wise words with which to begin any day!
Peering out the window, if you look closely, you can see my hooking chair (sorely vacant as of late) but gone is the white mantle. I needed a change. I am, however, missing it. Perhaps it will pop up elsewhere.
I've been staying very busy. Annie turned twenty nine on August 9th. The fun lasts all week. We've taken four trips this summer...all with the Board of Governors. Back and forth to south Florida all four times. I've been sewing for the holidays...for my friend's shop. Trapped in a car crossing Alligator Alley I can get some sewing done.
I had seriously considered not blogging anymore. I took a hiatus...didn't read or comment much...and finally decided I'd miss you all too much.
It is as hot as Hades here. Only mad dogs and my husband the runner go out in the Florida sun in August...and apparently...our Mr. Cardinal and a beautiful finch??? Guess they thought a day at the pool was in order.
Hope summer is treating you well!
Enjoy the day,
