the summer wind came blowing in

happy summer everybody! how’s everything in your world? i’m finally sneaking in some blog time so all’s right in the world here for the moment.

i’m basically just working hard during the day and sleeping hard at night. today was the first time we were able to get out and take a road trip to some favorite haunts and we found a gold leaf cocktail table.

you’ll be happy to know my sconces are up. now i’m on the lookout for a pair of slipper chairs to sit under them.

well you know how the days are, they start out with big talk, plans and good intentions but suddenly it’s late and it’s all i can do to write these last few words. sweet dreams and wishing you lots of lazy days and a summer to remember!

June 22, 2011. Summer.

    I am so ready for summer — and the beach — and yet I cannot believe the solstice has come and gone. I feel the days are rushing away like those waves.

    Way to go! Leave the house once and bring home that fabulous table! I hope I find something that cool next time I get to steal away for a moment… And what I wouldn’t give for a quick dip in the sea!!!
