Bye bye June


In June 2014 I

smelled and gathered roses
saw the gang again (I am sure they are the very same)
fell in love with Vish Puri
saw the house getting a new coat of pretty gray paint
dreamed of a new patio
saw one being build
sewed some cushions and throws 
(thank you Jane, Jane and Elf M for the beautiful materials)
both inside
to the finished deck (yes, we have one now, all we need is the warm weather)
witnessed the wonderful halo
tried my best with gardening in storm and cold
had logs on a fireplace in Midsummer (and woolen socks too most days)
watched enough football to last a lifetime
had  some lovely guests


now I am quite happy to say goodbye to it
and welcome July and sunshine with all my heart

Awe well despite the chill in the air it looked a pretty good June to me!
Love the cat and birdie cushions, the deck looks wonderful and the midnight sun may not have been warm but at least it was there!
And I imagine very welcome guests too. :)
Happy July my friend,

Hello Vivienne,

Thank you! June has been good BUT the weather has been horribly, cold and rainy. It's said (well have I hear that before?) be getting better during this week but... Fingers crossed!

Have a lovely July!

Hi Mia, It's still chilly.....I am sending you warm sun and gentle breezes for the whole month of July. Loved seeing your pictures!

Hello Anne,

Thank you, we love the deck, nut it has been so cold that we haven't been able to use it as much as I would have wished (I dream of knitting there for hours!). I wish it is more beautiful at yours?

Happy July!


Mia said...

Hello Jane,

Nope, not that great June here :) but we are really counting on July! And thank you still once for the CK-towel, made the cutest pillowcase!

Have a lovely July, kisses to Daisy and Billy!

Hello Helen,

Thank you! We needed to be busy to stay warm in June ;) - not really that bad, but may things got done thanks to my handyman-hb! He rocks!

Wishing you a lovely and creative July!


Mia said...

Hello Teje,

Thank you for the hoy July-wishes, we really need it! And yes, my precious PINK unikko kastelykannu, I have had it for years, and even I really am not a garden-person that helps :)

Wishing you the most wonderful July!

Your deck looks beautiful. So nice to have. I bet kids are enjoying it too. June is over now and I can't believe it!

Love the bird cushion.

Hello Mia,

Lovely photo round-up and here's hoping you have a wonderful relaxing and sunny July!


This time of the year...

Usually around this time, when children go back to school, and you can just about to smell the autumn, I start to dig deeper in my fabric...
