Happy Friday! I’m blogging in today with a collection of lingering blooms from our back garden. It’s so nice to step out and still be greeted by a sea of bright color this late in the season. All the rain we’re getting along with the mild temperatures, things just keep on blooming. This weekend is forecast to be a rainy blustery few days with hurricane Matthew looming to our South. I hope everyone down there stays safe! I painted the trim on our staircase a couple of weeks back. It was one of the many cloudy wet days we’ve had lately so there wasn’t much natural light coming in. I was just truck truckin’ along thinking this fresh white color looks so bright compared to the old color, it must dry a couple of shades darker. As I finished the entire stairwell I stepped back only to realize I had used the wrong color paint. Ugg!So after I finished throwing a tiny little hissy fit, I took one of our shutters into Lowes for a color match. It came out close enough that I’m not going to need to paint all of the trim in our whole house over to match. Yikes! Crisis avoided!
I arranged three little vases with the garden blooms to dress up the windowsill. It’s a mix of white creamers, blue glass bottles, and pinks and purples from the garden. I always like to celebrate a job with a pretty treat of some sort. It helps get me through!Have a lovely weekend!
