I Love August...
Hello August. I Love August! August to me represents the very best of Summer and I Love Summer!!
This sweet little angel ATC is flying her way through the mail. Summer colors, flowers, butterfly and ladybugs. I couldn't resist putting this together.
Recently I was recycling some cardboard and boxes from shopping. I couldn't resist cutting out this fabulous strawberry from a Truvia box. The cardboard is thick and glossy and I was able to cut out a nice stack of ATC blanks. This strawberry just said "Summer" to me. So I embellished it and called it complete. It is ready to be put into the mail and sent to???
My kitchen has little shelves under the overhead cabinets and I did not want to display the normal coffee mugs on them. The lighting enhances what is on the shelves. I had these sweet little cottages, buildings, people and adornments from my mother's things. I chose to display them on these shelves and I am enjoying my little treasures every day.
I have a total of three shelves in my kitchen that I am featuring the little buildings on display. I am always pleased when company is over and they compliment my little collection.
This is me...nothing ordinary here. Unique and happy. I have other shelves in the kitchen and I will share those collections another time. What do you surround yourself with in unexpected places?
Our weather is just perfect in the high 80's. I am not keeping up with my weeding or trimming but I am still able to enjoy all of our roses and the blooming crepe myrtle. I am doing my second trimming of the woolly thyme this year. It is very laborious and very tedious as it is on the ground and I am not good at ground level any longer. I love how it grows around my flagstones and therefore it is worth my efforts.
Mr. C is continuing to improve. We are learning about his concussion. He is no longer listing to one side from his ribs. However he is "off-kilter" and has a balance issue. The testing shows a cranial disconnect from the head trauma. The good news is that with physical therapy he can re-learn how to correctly balance and function. We feel very blessed as he is improving daily. We are very grateful for all of your well wishes. Now that August is here...What are you doing this month?
Blissful Summer days to you and yours...
