My days are turning into a summer collage. A constant stream of snapshot moments of which I have taken few actual photos.
I'll share with you, instead, a substitution of happy images. The ruffled cottons of long hot days and cricket nights. The simple and shiny essentials of a shared table. The color of light's reflection at mid-year. . . . A few of my favorite things. . . .
I am also showing two new ironstone bowls for my collection that I found on my travels!
One of them is a smaller footed bowl of which I had none, and the other is a nice big serving bowl.
They are now making themselves at home on the dining room table with a few other friendly pieces.
(I'm also feeling very clap-board farmhouse with a wrap around porch--ah, me...)
"Early in the morning, when the birds begin, the light is an infusion of gold through my curtains. All the new insistent green of the world, and the glowing color from a thousand blossoms are in it, and the smell is so heavenly sweet it aches in the heart."
Gladys Taber, The Book of Stillmeadow, July
Here's to happy days,
and sweet midsummer night dreams. . . .
