summer inspiration

There seems to be inspiration every where I turn!!  I can't keep up with all the ideas going through my head!!  Here are a couple things catching my eye and inspiring my thoughts this week...


Fresh and fun striped paper straws.  I've never seen them in this color!  Photo from {here}.

I also recently discovered this lovely shop and blog which recently posted about these wine crate summer flowers arrangements.  Genius!



Here is the link to her original inspiration.  Man, I am going to hunt down a wine crate this week!  I cannot wait to have one of these in the house and the patio table...and also the porch.

And speaking of flowers, am I the only one who doesn't have {or have access to} a giant blooming lilac tree??  Man!! 

more blooms

lilacs

Lovely lilac photos from the sweet Emily's blog.  Aahh...

More lilacs from {here}.


I never wanted plummy painted furniture until I saw this photo


Photo from this freckled and fabulous blog.  I could totally imagine a girly dresser painted like this in my closet...hmmmm.  Right now, somewhere in front of his computer, my husband is reading this and getting nervous that I might be on Craigs List at this very moment scouring for a dresser to paint pink and add to our very long list of projects.  Hee hee.

Reid has asked multiple times if he could have a lemonade stand.  I think we are going to oblige this summer.



And, I think I am going to try and build the stand myself.  Er, with Mark's help.  Lord knows, I don't even know what to do with a screwdriver.  Isn't this one the cutest?  Photo from the ever inspiring pinterest.com.

On another note, the weather here has been gorgeous and we have been taking every opportunity to head to the beach.  I have been washing our beach towels every single day, but I don't mind it a bit.  I am SO ready for summer!!

  1. Love it all! I would LOVE a lilac tree in my yard...who am I kidding...I want an entire "cut" garden so I can walk outside and fill vases all over my house just from my backyard!! Some day!! Oh, and Lily wants to do a lemonade stand too!!! They have some cute stuff for it at Target right now!

  2. By the way, I saw some antique wine crates down at one of the antique stores in OB...maybe Vignettes? We used a wine crate for Lily's fairy garden!
