White, shabby chic furniture tends to catch my eye and although in some ways it would be easier to just buy a piece, it’s much more expensive. It’s also gratifying to bring a worn, but still worthy piece of furniture back to life and in the end to give it a place in a home, once again.
This table was in front of a recently emptied house that looked to be one of an older couple that have either passed or have moved to a residence of some sort. I can’t help but to think how they once brought this same piece into their home and cherished it for years. Using it throughout ordinary days, holidays and other special occasions.
Watching one season greet another is a brilliant act of Mother Nature. As summer fades into fall, I’m trying to absorb all they both have to offer.
One of Philosophy’s latest products so eloquently captures summer in all it’s young glory. Before summer passes us by, I just had to share their latest philosophy on ‘Falling in Love – Summer.’
‘philosophy: the spark of summer love is bright and dazzling. it dances you through days of sunny encounters and sweeps you into warm nights of romantic outings. like a shooting star, summer love captures you in a spectacular moment. summer love may be fleeting, but its glow is unforgettable. it is a glimpse of true love that inspires you to look to the universe for the next great spark.’
There is a part of me that likes to believe that something this simple could put just a little more love into the world. May both seasons greet you with warmth, kindness and beauty this weekend!
Ralph Waldo Emerson summed up summer pretty well when he said, ‘Live in the sunshine. Swim in the sea. Drink the wild air.’
We’re in the midst of trying to decide where to take one last big drink of summer’s fading beauty. A weekend trip to one of the many quaint New England towns seems appropriate. Clearly, we still have some narrowing down to do.
Until then, I’ll be dreaming of:
:: Sea salt air
:: Soft sand and sea shells by the seashore
:: Sea shell hunting
:: Nautical inspired towns
:: Waves hitting the sand
