A Mothy Little Heaven - Summer Lanterns

Thinking about the changing seasons, cooler evenings, being out on the patio again. There are always a couple of weeks each summer when we just ignore the fact that we have a back door, but there has been a shift in the wind. Not cold for ever so long, but a time for lanterns again.

Wishful Arranging

I have enough dishes and silverware to host lots of dinner parties (which I never do). What I do not have, is one place to keep everything. I'm too darned picky since I was raised with antiques all around me. It was the 70s, that was the cheap furniture. Now I don't like things without dovetail joints and a little quality patina.

But I'll design my own furniture!  This one would look great in a dark stain with faceted glass knobs or a crackled cream with pinky red ceramic handles. Now if I can just find a bored, impoverished cabinet maker who has a nice pile of furniture-quality wood and nothing to make!

Looks good right about...there!
