A Chilly Summer Day

It's a bit chilly out today, now that summer is here anything
below 80 is a tad cool for me...

This is something fun to do...pick some posies and
put them in colored water (food coloring)...
watch them change colors
(daisies work the best)

Maygan and I did that to these daisies about a week ago
re-cut the stems after a couple of days to keep them drinking

Been working and rearranging inside today...

put some new "summer stuff" on my drysink

Old bottles and Goose feathers

This flag in the crock is an old crocheted flag


dried Larkspur, Blue Thistle and Butterfly pillow tucked
into a wall basket

Finally put some of my pewter on my mantel

Pewter by Candlelight

And, lastly, the table is set for a 4th of July picnic

Enjoy the afternoon,

Check out my last post to see the Primitive Potting Bench
I made yesterday if you haven't'll want one, LOL...

But...Girl...I'm drooling over that pewter....and I still can't believe what you got it for!! Sure you don't have to much? ;o) (PS - What time's the picnic? Can I bring anything??) ;o) Have a wonderful evening....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  3. Traci, what a great idea for the daisies!!! OLM

  4. I didn't know you could change the colors of flowers! That is too cool! I'll have to try it out with my son ~ he'd be so amused! Your summer decorations are looking good! I LOVE the yellow crock in the one pic! :O)
