We’ve been dusting off the garden furniture and hanging our shade sails. Summer is on the way. Temps shot up overnight, with a high of 90 degrees (32C) in the forecast. There’s a dry wind blowing as well, making if feel more like July than April. It’s a bit strange.
I (mostly) played hooky today, enjoying lunch on the patio of The Left Bank with my friend Laura. I made phone calls in between our get together, but overall had a relaxing day.
Yesterday I put the finishing touches on Laura’s birthday gift, a set of greeting cards and gift tags made using the Couture line of paper by Graphic 45.
Now that the birthday girl’s opened her gift, I can give you a little peek.
I trimmed the box and some of the cards with vintage seam binding from my friend Donna’s Antique Row booth. She sells a variety of ephemera with a changing selection, so it’s always fun to go look (and buy).
In other garden news, I’m still trying to decide what to do with our garden swing. It’s in a sorry state thanks to the nest-building squirrels. I’ll share more about that in another post.
I hope your week is off to a terrific start.
