Oh, my aching back! I spent all evening planting out all my containers (and cleaning away mud courtesy of Macauley) and now I am sore but happy to have it done. It's been pouring down rain all day today so Macauley and I are sort of straightening the house for my parents to come for a visit tomorrow and getting our Father's Day gifts together. It seems like since school has been out I have been immersed in creativity--gardening, scrapbooking, blogging, decorating--and I love it. I hope summer just crawls by.
Our little cottage is somewhat bigger than it appears from the outside because it has a basement (which is where my black and white stuff is). The upstairs of our house is mostly decorated French Country with some Shabby Chic to match the outside of the house (and our whole neighborhood, in fact) and the architectural details on the inside--big beams, textured walls, country colors. Our house is on a cul-de-sac with about 10-12 other houses, all of which are unique and quite cute, and all of which have fabulous cottage landscaping that we have tried to keep up with in our own more simplified way. People just slowly drive up and down our street constantly, checking out all the different looks. We're lucky to live here, but that doesn't mean I wouldn't be willing to move. I'm always up for a change!
