We all sigh when we find something we like has broken or faded or disappeared, some things are found a little too late, some never. I’m still searching for the rest of my paper lanterns…
Some love to add flowers, some have brown thumbs… If I ever post greenery please know that I can take no credit for their beauty – I would be the queen in Alice in Wonderland painting the white roses red. I am VERY fortunate to have a husband who is great at gardening. I know this.
Some of us refuse to buy anything new since the season is short, some spend whatever it takes to impress the visitors from out of town that are popping in. I have no pictures of this point since I am obviously not the one who spends whatever it takes.
Some of us thrift store re-love, others buy the newest kid on the block.
Some of us paint everything (paint from the Home Depot) and some would rather start fresh.
Some bring stuff outside from inside and hope it doesn’t rain, others think that’s too risky, and wouldn’t take anything out that doesn’t say indoor/outdoor.
My failed Before and After chair has actually withstood a LOT of rain and it’s still looking pretty good! It’s been outside since March, so there’s another lesson here, somewhere.
Some of us like to put the various pieces exactly the way we did the year before (and the years before that) and others like to try them in different locations. You KNOW I’ll be moving it around, right?
Some of us are lucky to have a space to decorate, some just dream what they would do if they did.
Some never venture out once they’ve done their area, others drive around to check out and get ideas from the neighbours.
Okay, this is not really decorating, but totally worth posting.
So, there you have it, my take on Summer decorating. Where do you fall in the comparisons?
Now I’m off to find those darned lanterns…..
