Bustin' Out Summer

I'm not sure why, but for the last couple holidays/seasons, I've only half-heartedly decorated the house. And if you've been reading my blog for awhile, you know that's not like me, right? Since putting away the Christmas decorations, the most I've done this year is to pulled out a few seasonal quilts and call it good enough.


It may be that as I've gotten just slightly older, decorating seems to bring about a few more aches and pains. Or maybe it's the fact that instead of having all my seasonal "goodies" stored in the spare bedroom closets and cupboard, the spare bedroom has been the Wild Child's room, and the seasonal "goodies" are all stored in boxes in the garage.


But whatever the reason, I DID get a little enthusiastic about decorating for summer. I suspect the fact that the housecleaning is spread over the course of the week means I have a little more time and energy for decorating on the weekend.


And that's what I did this past weekend.


I still have a few things I want to do in the livingroom, but the kitchen, bedrooms, and bathrooms have touches of red, white, and blue in them.


Summer's definitely in the house!

Just beautiful decorating. I guess my heart is not in it anymore, with the size of my apartment - mostly no place to store things season to season. You did a wonderful job!
