I finally feel like my life is settling back down into some semblance of normalcy (whatever that might be). My kids are back to school (middle school and college) and my days are a little bit more of my own. I am still unpacking purchases from my trip. I went to some awesome estate sales, a mega church sale (so many treasures, my hands were shaking~ trying to see it all before everyone else and running back to my car to unload and run back for more.) and did some fun shopping with my sisters. I found a beautiful shabby chic style set of Ralph Lauren sheets that I needed for a really awesome price at a Marshalls. So luxurious!
I came home to 10 foot tall sunflowers blooming in my yard. They were tipping over and my husband did not find that tipping over look attractive. He was doing some yard work and informed me he was going to cut them down. I ran out with my scissors to cut as many blooms as I could. ( I know, "don't run with scissors!") They stayed gorgeous in my antique ironstone pitcher for more than a week, dropping thick yellow pollen on anything that anyone set near them...including my husband's I PHONE (serves him right for chopping down my sunflowers LOL)
As they were getting past their prime, I wanted to photograph them because I think they are so beautiful this way. They look very "Monet" to me!
I hope your summer was wonderful and if it wasn't, I pray that you can find some peace and harmony in your heart and home this fall.
Hugs and Tweets!
