Happy Monday friends! Is summer just flying by for you? It is for us too…and it makes me sad. I love the easy, lazy days of summer- kids sleeping in, staying up late, coffee on the deck, weekend trips :) It’s been a relaxing month for us…and I hope you’ve all had a great summer so far!
I have two wine barrels on our front porch…they are overflowing with sweet potato vine, phlox and limelight hydrangeas. So I cut a few limelights to enjoy inside.
I wanted to mention the vintage grain sack that I purchased from Tracey at French Larkspur… and show one way I use grain sacks- as slipcovers for the arm rests of our sofas. With 3 kids and a messy English bulldog, this is an easy way to keep our white sofa slipcovers cleaner for a longer period of time…just throw the grain sacks in the washer when needed, and makes your sofa pretty, too :)
Also, we’ve been eating a LOT of fresh fruit this summer…cherries are one of our
favorites! I had to take some pics of these, they were so pretty on an ironstone plate.
I have been working out in our garden lately, especially in the late evening when it’s not too hot. I harvested the lavender. It smells divine. There’s nothing like fresh cut lavender.
I also wanted to mention the show everyone is talking about…Fixer Upper on HGTV. Wow! I didn’t know what I’ve been missing. My friend Amy at All Things Home told me how much she LOVES it. So, I saw the first one, and was hooked :) Now, I’m almost caught up with all the episodes! I love that sweet couple and their style is fabulous! If you haven’t seen it yet, check it out :)
Hugs to you all…have a great week!
