This is the buzzing season for me. I have time to really sit and think about subtle changes to make around Sweet Bee Cottage. I can look at magazines and blogs for inspiration and then actually do something about it.
Here's just one change I did today. Just moved some furniture from one room to another. Thought some additional seating in the living room might be nice.
These "new" chairs came from my dining room/sunroom.
That Fabulous Phyllis sewed the seat cushions for me. I found a matelasse bedspread from JCPenney's and used some blue fabric I found at Home Fabrics and she sewed up a storm. These match my reading chair in the sunroom.
We installed a skylight in here a few years ago. This room really needed light and WAS so depressing on a bright summer day. What a difference! Plus I love to sit in the living room on a rainy day and watch the rain fall on the skylight. It's fun to watch the stars through it too.
what do you think? Now we can comfortably seat six adults in here. I'm still not 100% sure about it - I'll have to see how the traffic flows. I'm thinking about moving a couple of other pieces around in here to help the flow of traffic.
Well now thanks for buzzing in today. It's a wee bit cooler here today but 103 degrees tomorrow. YIKES! I better stock up on the lemonade and salad greens. By this time next week though we're supposed to be back down to the mid 90s. Trust me - that's a pleasant summer temperature here.
Hope you're finding a way to stay cool today.
