Summer Corner# 3 (part one)
June 22, 2006
Hello ladies, well I am enjoying summer corner and want to thank all who have joined in the fun. Thank you, thank you and keep the creative ideas coming. It can be anything summery!!!
Mrs. Stagg's posted a beautiful Summer Corner of her home. I LOVE it. So sweet, rosy, Victorian. I love life in Merryville. You have inspired me Mrs. Stagg's with your wonderful eye.
Dear Debbie at Homespun Living also posted some wonderful creative ideas we could all do at home. I want to copy her cabinet with bird's eggs, nest, feathers. Love it. Very Charlotte Mason !! Also now I want a bird cage !!!! Thank you !!
I wanted to post this picture Jody took of her front porch. It is so festive and fourth of July !! Isn't the little chair with the basket charming. Jody I love the blessing sign. A special word for Jody, me and a few of you ladies who visit my blog. I will never look at the word blessing the same again.
I hope everyone is inspired and see at lest one small thing they can do. The weather here is weird this summer. Gray, cold, sometimes sunny but then raining the next. Very muggy but I had to pull my sweaters out again. I know you ladies in the other states are really suffering in the heat, I am so sorry. Well because of the weather we have not be spending as much time outside as usual. So I have been focusing on the inside. I have been putting away a lot of my small clutter, to give a cleaner look. I pulled out all my white linens for pillows. I did get one purple one (above) last week on sale $9 !!! I like purple as an accent color with white and sea shells for summer. I pulled out all my shells and have been placing and stacking them around my living room. I stacked to cake pedestals with my museum wax and set out shells on it. I love this they look like little summer tea cakes to me.
Well my goodness I have more to share but I do not like to overload you to much in one post. So I will write a part 2. Thank you again ladies for all your encouragement and inspiration. The blog world is so full of kindred spirits and I am thrilled to be meeting all of you. I am off to have a cup of lavender/rosemary tea in a pretty tea cup and watch the gray skies. xoxox
Your wicker, pillows, and seashells look so summery and beautiful. And Jody's porch looks so inviting!

Your summer table is just beautiful! You have inspired me to pick up some seashells this weekend. If you have a Michaels craft store in your area they have a wonderful new line of seaside decorating things. I also thought of Charlotte Mason when I saw Debbie's nature cupboard...I love it!!
Thank you for sharing all your summer corners with us!

Clarice, I love the new pillow! It looks lovely there on the wicker. Yet another thing to covet when I next visit. I know I've told you before, but I'm so enjoying reading your blog. It's great fun!
