Last week, I decorated the farmhouse for summer. It took about 5 minutes.
It can take me days to gussy up the house for autumn. And I usually spend a week festooning the house for Christmas. I like to add some warm and cozy touches for the winter months. Spring has me bringing in the greens.
But you know how I feel about summer. (Blah.)
Nevertheless, I spent my 5 minutes making the house summer-ready.
I put my small collection of shorebirds on the linen cabinet in the living room.
I placed a few fresh herbs in a crock by the back door, and added a conch shell.
I put a topiary on the kitchen counter right next to the rack of white summer-party plates. (Apparently, some of my summer-party plates were in the dishwasher, because the bottom stack looks short.)
I put a pair of topiaries (I think I have an obsession with topiaries) on this kitchen cabinet.
A geranium on the dining room table...
...and I'm done!
Do you decorate for summer? (Does it take you more than 5 minutes?)
