It’s already incredibly hot here in Texas. So I decided to add more blues to my indoor landscape. I started with my bedroom. Now I’ve moved into the garden room. The last couple of days I’ve been working on these seashell terra cotta pot projects. I totally stole this idea from Andrea of Opulent Cottage. You can see hers here. Great design, Andrea!
I had all sorts of nautical paintings and such out stored out in the garage. So I hung them in the garden room.
Last week I brought this mirror out of the garage storage room and hot glued sea shells to it.
I changed quilts behind the couch. For summer, I thought I’d go with a blue-themed one I sewed years ago. And then changed out the quilts on the couch and chair.
I was inspired by Barbara Jacksier’s book Waterside Cottages. This one is signed by the author herself. A wonderful book!
I’ll always have red in my decorating, I believe. Just love it too much to change now!
Small change over here in the “library corner.” I used the centerpiece glass jar for storing ribbon. But added some vintage images inside also.
I happened to also win this Cath Kidston book from Andrea that I received last week. So I put it next to a basket of seashells with a coffee-scented candle in the center. Yummy scent!
The seashells glued to terra cotta pots is fun, easy, and cheap. A good project for a hot summer day.
I haven’t been around Blog Land as much lately. I’m getting to know my sister. We email and talk on the phone a lot. We’re hoping to see one another next month. We’ve needed this past month to get acquainted. When you meet at this point in your lives, there’s a lot to catch up on! I will be writing about her here soon.
As you can see, I’ve changed my blog up with the new Blogger Designer. I caution you to start a test blog to play around with this new feature. Some have learned that you can’t just change your template back as you were once able to. Then if you like it on your test blog, I’d write down what changes you preferred, then add them to your actual blog. I found the green sidebars to be a very soothing addition. Let me know what you think!
(Edited to add: Someone just emailed me that they cannot read the font on this post. That the letters and words are jumbled up together. Is anyone else having this problem?)
