I love summer and the light that fills my home during this season. There are certain times of the day that are better to capture photos. When the light is just right it can be magical.
An Italian tray that sits next to my bed.
My sweet little fashionista. A few years ago while visiting my nieces and sister, they told me I was in a fashion coma. I have to agree. I really dislike clothes shopping and its like pulling teeth to get me to go to the mall. This little one helps to remind me not to be a frump.
This beautiful butterfly brooch was created for me by the amazing Miss Ulla. While my brother and SIL were here, we were able to visit with our beloved blogging friend.
This gorgeous little book was hand made for us by Anita, my SIL of Castles Crowns and Cottages! It is truly a work of art.
Is this paper not incredibly beautiful?
Another soft cover book created by Anita, based on a story written by my brother and then illustrated by her. To read the story click here.
Summer flowers in my kitchen waiting to be put in water.
These heart patches are my attempt to save my very worn matelasse cover on my bed. I have used this same bed cover for 12 years on my summer bed, I'm not sure I can salvage it this year, I have more holes than I can patch.
The end of my summer day always includes candlelight, no matter how hot it is.
I want to wish you all a very Happy 4th of July. Have a safe and wonderful holiday!
Here are some last minute fun 4th of July projects from Martha Stewart.
