I have this Gooseberry Patch calendar I just love in my kitchen. It has the sweetest pictures. I was standing talking on my red phone and noticed I had some things on the counter that reminded me of that picture.
Of course they weren't all collected together but it goes to show you that the simplest things make such homey decor.
I am drawn to anything old fashioned and vintage looking. To me that evokes the best feelings of a cozy home. Just as the picture in the calendar spurs cozy feelings in me when I look at it, you can just use everyday items you group together to create cozy little scenes in your home.
We had to cut down the sunflowers. I am so sad but they were falling over. These were the last of my flowers for the year. Poor Q is sick with a nasty fever. Not sure what she has come down with but I hate it when my babies don't feel well. I will be sticking around the house for the day hoping she gets over this soon.
Hubby and I were going to paint the kitchen this weekend but I don't think it will happen now. He has to work some of the weekend and he is so tired from long hot days and lots of calls out in the night he needs to rest when he gets a couple of days off. I think I will start to primer and call it good when I am tired of painting. Projects move very slowly around here as you can tell. That is okay. A lot of life has to be lived so time isn't always there to finish things when we would like.
