Hello....Spring has been here, gone, and back again.
The nights have gone from 50degrees, down to the 20's.
The hanging planters must wonder why they keep going from the porch, to the garage, and then back to the porch???
People ask why I don't wait to purchase the annuals.
It seems others shop early, as I do.
If I wait until it warms up enough at night....all the prettier pots will be gone!!!
So......the traveling plants will be worth the extra work, until weather permits them to stay outside every night.
My decor hasn't changed much in the years I have been blogging.
I just move the things that I have collected around...lol.
This past Fall and Winter I purged a lot of the things I've had at the Lakehouse for way too many years, however.
The antique farm cupboard, and big blue table (from the Emmy Awards) went to my youngest daughter.
Vintage dishes, and other tableware landed at the Salvation Army, along with oodles of linens....including some shabby chic quilts, and duvet covers.
My daughter also took the vintage dishes that went with what she already has.
I cannot believe how much holiday stuff I had packed away!! A lot of that is gone, also.
After a while, I stopped bringing it all out.
Why not donate it to an organization that can sell it, and use the money for a good cause.
At first, it felt kind of bare in here.
Then I really took a good look around, and realized how much "stuff" I still have!!!
Good grief, it must have looked like a flea market in here before!!!There are still things I need to part with. It's a process.
The real problem is.....DO NOT buy anything to replace what I've given away!!! I'm working on that.
