I hope you all had a terrific weekend! I know some of you down there in the southern states
are suffering through very high temperatures,
I don't know how you handle that every summer!
Obviously, I'm not a heat person.
Here, we enjoyed a beautiful
couple of days in the 70's -
with perfect, cloudless skies, cool ocean breezes,
and lovely, clear evenings with a full moon.
There's no mistaking it's summer!!
I'm getting it to look a bit more summery around the house.
The abalone shell is a local find, from one of our beaches.
The Mr. and I spent one evening at the Theatre,
and the rest of the weekend working in the yard, (him)
cleaning cars (him, again), and listening to the Giants lose (us).
What did I do this weekend?
But, just look at this gorgeous fabric, which I found
when I was searching for a replacement fabric for my outdoor cushions,
(You can read all about how I did that here.)
I sewed it into some quickie pillow slipcovers.
I whipped these up on Saturday.
They have french openings in the back, so they were super simple.
No zippers or buttons or hand sewn closures, just cushions tucked in
with overlapping fabric in the back.
Then I went to work on another project that I'll show you next week!
It's a good one, I promise
It looks a little more summery in the living room,
with the addition of that bright yellow in the fabric design.
A little more tweaking and it's even brighter!
and the after:
What do you think?
Not a huge change, but any change is welcome!
And, Duckies, it seems like everyone was out
enjoying the nice weather this weekend.
These guys stopped traffic,
and took the scenic route through the golf course.
Well, I'm off!
I'm on my way
for a few days with my girls.
Three blondes, on a road trip.
We are heading south, with our cameras and sunscreen,
and looking for adventure!
I'll be back after the 4th
to share any adventure I found with you,
and with news about Heart and Home's
anniversary celebration, and the giveaway.
Wednesday Gratitude will resume on July 7th.
(There's a peek at the other project in this picture, if you look hard enough -
can you guess what it is?)
Leave a comment and let me know what you think
about the mini-transformation!
Have a wonderful week!
Enjoy your fireworks!
See you soon.
Until next time,
Linking up to Susan's Metamorphosis Monday.
