Good Life Wednesday at my place
Wed 3rd, Aug, 2011
Happy Good Life Wednesday to you lovely BCer’s.
I wanted to show you some little BC lanterns…
I love lanterns and I have them stashed all over this cottage…it’s really easy to make them from jam/mason jars…just tie some wire to the top and hey presto…I made a bunch of these and hung them outside from the old fig tree…it looks too sweet at night…I need to seriously improve my night-taking photography skills though to show you..
I also like to just pop flowers in them….very simple yet effective…and of course hitting the old decorating-on-a-budget button pretty nicely…vintage glass, a few shells and a bunch of drugstore flowers…you can’t go wrong ;-)
I propped these on this old ladder I have sitting in the corner of the deck…this old ladder has proved to be one of those side-of-the-road finds that is priceless…it couldn’t really have come to me more perfectly dressed for this tatty old cottage…old weathered rope tied here and there, some vintage stamping of the company name, just right faded old paint splats…not bad for picking it up on the school run for nothing…I love dressing this up…it’s quicker and easier than tablescaping…though I have to say there have been a couple of accidents on here with things falling off as little herberts run past and knock things off..I can deal with that…just…
I have been sitting out here on the deck with a cup of tea reading my book for Good Life Wednesday…it is drizzling with rain here on the beaches…excellent deck and book weather :-)
I hope you are enjoying Wednesday wherever you are?
