Changing to a summery look in my china hutch.
Summer is flowers and greens, yellows and pinks. Every thing is vintage except for the green
plate, the lamp and the 'flower' napkin ring on the linen napkins.
I got this biscuit jar at an estate sale 30 years ago. The silver picks with polished stones
in the vase are vintage.
I had a tea party yesterday to celebrate my friend's birthday but I won't show you all the
pictures until Tuesday when I join Tea Time Tuesday. I love these purple tulips, don't you?
Last week I continued cleaning out and packing up the kitchen. I washed and dried and wrapped
and packed in boxes about 70 cups and saucers! I didn't know I had that many. Oh my. I do
know there won't be that many going back into the new cupboard! I have 9 boxes packed with dishes
and decor and I haven't even started the every day dishes, pantry foods, pots, pans, Pyrex, plastic....
Whew!! Too much stuff!!!
This is what I'm working on now. We had a lovely afternoon and evening yesterday so I am
getting the front deck ready for it's summer look. Since it is open with no protection I cannot
leave cushions on the chairs all the time so they only come out when it's nice. And, you will
see there is no colour yet as it is not warm enough to put out summer plants. I hope to work
on this more today and will show you what I did later.
This was last July and I can't wait for it to look like this again.
What are you 'tweaking' with this week? Are you changing things around inside
and outside for summer too? I know many of you have your gardens in full bloom
and are having summer weather but here in Canada, spring has been slow coming
this year and we are just getting into the swing of things. It's a shorter season here
but when it comes it's glorious!
Bring on summer!!
Have a wonderful day everyone.
