Where has Spring gone?
The older I get, the more I tend to savor each season,
as they go by so quickly. So in a blink of an eye, Spring has passed us by
and Summer is here.
Therefore . . . . Let the summer decorating begin.
For some reason I always start in the sunroom.
I went to the attic and gathered my summer/coastal decor.
Aisle 2 … Shelf number 3. 🙂
I am proud to say that I totally shopped the house and attic to
transform the Sunroom from Spring to Summer, using lots of cool blues and greens.
The candle from the Pagoda lantern was removed
and filled the the glass container with shells, mainly from my travels.
The scarf in the French market basket was replaced with another of
pretty summer colors. The bouquet of lavender remains
along with one of my new favorite magazines, “Flower”.
I can always count on the fragrance of the wonderful lavender
and always picking up fallen buds from the floor!
For me, summer means hydrangeas blooming in my yard.
I have lots of buds, and only one bloom, so off to Trader Joe’s
to get some hydrangeas for the room.
A large shell that my Sweetie brought home from a trip to the beach
is always on my desk. This summer, it is displayed more predominately in the room.
I love the colors of the ocean of the greens and blues in the Suzani pillows
from Pottery Barn that I purchased a couple of years ago.
Summer is the perfect time to use sea glass in your decor.
I must admit . . . this sea glass is not collected from the beach,
but from the shelves of Pottery Barn.
Vintage blue bottles are the perfect compliment to the sea glass.
Months and months ago, I purchased a Baldwin brass bowl
from my favorite consignment shop, and it is making its debut today
with a boxwood sphere/topiary.
An ironstone bowl with velvety moss balls sits on top of a vintage stool.
I placed the chippy vintage stool specifically in front of the potting bench
to break up the sea of green in that area and add some interest and texture.
Loving the change from from the Sunroom Spring decor of the bright and cheery colors
of the pillows in blues, yellows and greens to the cool blues and greens of summer.
I have been a little absent from my blog and social media lately
due to 3 trips in a 2 week period and being home for just one day between trips.
Needless to say it has been a bit exhausting for these old bones.
But must say that it was great to be able to see my mom on one of these trips
and on the last trip, my sisters. Went to Florida to attend my nephew’s graduation.
Here I am with my sisters: AKA, The Standley Sisters.
Oh boy, do I look tired!…It was a very stressful 13 hours of driving that day,
but worth it. Can you tell that we are sisters? We were always referred to as , The Standley Sisters.
