Hot days, sunshine, blooming hydrangeas... it felt like it was time to bring some summer inside.
I remember when I was newly married and we were living in our first home, I couldn't wait to start decorating and changing things around seasonally. I don't make as many changes now, but I still feel the same way. There's nothing like making a few little changes each season to make everything feel fresh, clean and homey again.
Fortuitously for me my husband needed to get his hair cut one morning we were out running errands, which gave me the perfect excuse to quickly walk through a couple of my favorite antique stores which are practically next door. ;-) I found three perfect blue transferware saucers to swap with the brown for summer.
It's funny how making one small change can bring out similar colors that are already there, like the blue gray painted wood and blue dishes in the cabinet.
(One of the many quirks of living in an old house is having certain things expand and refuse to close as the weather gets hot... like this cabinet door.)
I love that the hydrangeas are just starting to bloom. Every spring I look forward to these blue and purple blossoms!
Happy (almost) Summer to you!
