I’m back for a quickie post. This summer was a crazy busy one. It really made me have to adjust my priorities. While I love blogging here and leaving fun, romantic and inspiring ideas for you and me, I just can’t do it regularly so I’m opting to post when things strike my fancy. If you subscribe to my feed using your reader you’ll know when I’m posting. Sorry, I don’t keep a follower button on my blog, but you can still follow me if you like, just add me to your follower list.
This summer has been filled with chores. We cleaned and organized the house and as I said in the last few posts, I thought it would take all summer, and it did! We finally cleaned out our garage too. It’s now a spacious space where I can do our laundry and not feel claustrophobic.
Kitchen brick wall update:
I never got brave enough to paint my kitchen walls. They still look like this (click here to see). I’m such a chicken when it comes to my brick walls. I figure there is no going back once I’ve painted them, and I’m just not ready for that kind of commitment.
A little bit of the beach inside . . .
I purchased this painting on Etsy as an early birthday gift for my hubby. He loves the beach, and the colors of this painting are his very favorites. It hangs on the wall in our kitchen and gives the impression that you are looking out onto this beach scene beyond. He is loving it, and so am I.
Plums from our Satsuma plum tree . . .
I’d just about given up on our small little dwarf of a tree, and then it came to life. These are super sweet with an amazing burgundy colored flesh. YUMMY!!
Fall is knocking on my door . . .
I know it’s early, but pumpkins are making their way out of our fall boxes and taking up residence in our home already. I’ve never been this early to jump on the fall decorating bandwagon, but I can’t help myself.
Last but not least: Ms. Strong’s dancing shoe.
I found this beautiful dainty shoe all by its lonesome. Its amazing embroidery and the fact that it was a dancing shoe from the 1820’s captured my heart.
On the bottom of this sweet slipper it says, Great Grandmother Strong’s Dancing Shoe ~1820. Perhaps she wore it on the night she met her true love. If this had been my grandmother’s shoe, I could never have parted with it. It has now found a treasured place in our home.
Until next time . . .
Have a beautiful Fall!
