It is Friday, the first Friday of June. June. As in the middle of the year, June.
Who do we talk to about slowing this whole “time” thing down. Another birthday is creeping up on me, and I haven’t even taken the Spring mantel decorations down.
This summer I promised Tim that we would slow things down, and spend more time at home. That is pretty easy for us in the summer because we are blessed with a pool. We finally have it opened and that greenish hue is just a memory now. In order to celebrate I thought I would show you one of my favorite Etsy shops.
Samantha French captures the essence of summer fun in her oil paintings. If I could I would plaster waterproof versions of those all over our pool walls. The colors are so crisp and every single painting gets me giddy for cannonballs and mermaid games.
Ok, I need to get my head out of the summer-clouds…it’s still a little chilly yet.
So I will focus my attention on some of the coolest projects I have seen lately. This looks like the perfect project for summer BBQ’s. It is very difficult to find a cute tablecloth, even harder to find one that won’t blow away with the slightest breeze. I think Jordan’s DIY striped tablecloth would also make a cute picnic blanket so it is kind of a win-win. I am dying to make Design Sponge’s string art trellis. I love that they dyed the string prior to making it for that dash of summer color. I would feel so fancy with a trellis in my backyard and I am pretty sure it would force me to grow some lovely ivy or even grapes. That is it, it’s going on the list. Did I mention I am ready for some swim time? So it is no wonder that Design Mom’s feature on a photographer taking photos of people swimming under crashing waves it caught my eye. Oh how I long for a beach. I think photo-projects are so interesting and most of the time I am left thinking, “how on earth did they come up with that idea”.
Are you doing anything fun this weekend?
Are you as excited as us for swim season?
Can you believe it is June, gahhhh.
