The Good Old Summertime

Not movin' too fast these days, 
too many scattered things to keep up with!
This is the only picture I've managed to get 
in the last week that I like. I keep my straw hat next to
the red cabinet by the front door. and the flag purse 
was a gift from a friend, I made such a fuss over it
 for so long, she gave it to me!  ;)
The inspiration for the photo came after
 I  cut a few hydrangeas and hung them to dry 
next to the hat and purse.
Kinda beachy, don't you think!

Red Eastlake Chair with Red Geraniums

This welcoming little scene greets us when we come home,
such a common little chair when it was a drab brown.
Now not only do we smile when we see it, others do too.
I hope I put enough paint on it so it will hold up to the weather!


  1. What a beautiful way to enter your house! Your chair makes such a welcome picture. It must be a trip to live in SO CAL. So much beauty. San Diego seemed so mild in every way compared to LA. There is some fantastic shopping your way. My husband loved The Coronado too!

    1. Thanks JacquelineII
      My little red chair was a garage sale find, I painted it the same red that's on the front door!
      Having grown up in Chicago, I know how fortunate I am to live in California
      actually anywhere out west would be an improveovement on the midwest weather! ;)

  2. I agree, what a beautiful way to enter a house!
    I just loooove the red chair... It really pops out and adds the perfect touch!

    Thanks for sharing
