I hope you are enjoying your weekend.
It has been cool and damp here the last
couple of days making it less desirable
for working in the garden. We decided
to go out for breakfast to one of our favorite
summer spots, Cafe on the Clyde. It is a short
drive from here through the rolling hillside,
which have been newly planted for the season.
However, my story today is about
some new touches of soft blue in
The Gardener's Cottage.
The small bench was the perfect size
to serve as a coffee table in here so
it got a coat of Yarmounth Blue from
an old white bedspread covering it.
The pillows have the soft blue background as
well. Next on my list is to give the corner cupboard
a makeover with different china.
You might have noticed the washstand
also was painted soft blue.
was doing this old screen door from
white to Yarmounth Blue. I replaced the
old screen with lace.....looks so much
prettier don't you think?
I find this color blue very calm and soothing.
paint.The solid wood chair was a yardsale
$5. treasure.....already the perfect shade of blue.
These windows also have a panel of lace on a wooden
frame added to the inside.
The old cupboard was also freshened up
with the blue paint.
Can you see why my husband says he is
afraid to stand still when I have a paint brush
in my hand in case he ends up with a coat of
paint .....he would look good in blue!
I hope you have a lovely weekend!
Oh! the sun is trying to pop out here
making things a lot brighter but I was
happy for the rain as the garden was unusually
dry for this time of year.
Happy Memorial Day weekend to my
