    {home sweet home} – a whale of a time

    “… our objects, bibelots, whatnots, and knickknacks-say the most about who we are.
    they are as honest as a diary. ”

    sylvie’s  {home sweet home} tip no. 1:
    for an easy sunny update, pick up some happy colored pillows. sprinkle them around and – poof! – everything will feel lighter and brighter. on my little love list, i’m dreaming of some lemon yellow chevrons, vivid vermillion or, in today’s case….a handsome, cobalt blue whale.

    he’s a charmer, right? i’m trying to decide if he’ll make a bigger splash in our living room or alongside our corgi pup napoleon on our bed. either way, he’s sitting in my shopping cart and i cannot wait for him to come home!
    now it’s your turn, friends – how do you like to signal summer in your home sweet homes? a tall vase of hot pink dahlias?  a zinc white comforter? a lemon filled silver bowl?
    here’s to the bright side.

      This is such wonderful advice for bringing a bit of summer inside! John and I always have big bowls of citrus laying around, both for their visual appeal and so we can whip up a cocktail any time!
