You most likely have a small mental list of a few things that just say Summer Time to you. (Or even a long one!) I look forward to buying my first pot of white hydrangeas of the season when they finally turn up here, for instance. I don't think they are utterly impossible to grow in our region, but hydrangeas certainly aren't commonly grown here. (I have a big enough challenge keeping them alive in the pots!)
I love wicker anytime too, but I especially love it in summer. But wicker is another of those things that isn't so common here. Not sure why. . . . But good old wicker doesn't turn up in local markets much, so I get a thrill when I find a nice vintage piece. So naturally I'm loving my flowers in this lovely old florist basket!
I also came across a sweet little woven tray in a natural finish with great patina not long ago. I'm using it to showcase my new copy of Jeanne d'Arc Living. (Love that cover!!) But it's been keeping time on this chippy painted table in our living room for awhile now.
I like having a coffee table, but to me our sitting room always seems too small. The man of the house loved it right away when I brought it in to try it out. Especially good for cold summer drinks. And hey! It's summer time, and the living should be easy!
Are you enjoying easing into summer too?
Inside or out,
I hope it's a great week for you!
