Welcome to the weekend view.
It has been such a cool summer so far this year and it has been absolutely lovely.
Warm and sunshine filled but not too hot. While I love hot summer days and nights- once the temperature rises well into the 90’s it is a bit too hot for me. So those 80 degree days we have been enjoying have been blissful.
This week the weekend view is all about this, that and everything else- including a birthday girl and basket of blooms.
Basket of blooms
Peonies in abundance and a vintage basket just go together I think.
And places an armful inside a basket or old bucket is a favorite way to enjoy them- and any other flowers.
This is an old apple type basket- I honestly don’t know exactly what they are called- if anyone cares to chime in–please do. I found it at the thrift store and it usually would have a load of produce like apples inside of it. This one had an old paper liner and nothing else. It was just about $5 so home with me it came- and it was instantly filled with blooms and placed on the coffee table.
Dining Table in the woods
And for a styling project I was working on for a company I work with- outside it went to a table that was set up in the sweet peas. I am all about simple- and this worked perfectly for a couple of snaps. And this table is a huge favorite.
This is available HERE comes in several sizes. The vintage worn finish and those chunky legs are favorites. I will share more soon.
I walked into our closet the other day and took out the carpeting and basically, made a big fat mess.
