Which of these would be my find? Is it the gorgeous peonies? the white vase? the blue table?
all of the above?
makes me feel fine
sweet days of summer
the (peony’s) in bloom.
July is dressed up and playing her tune.
sorry, I just couldn’t help it… it popped into my head, and now it’s going to be there all day…
Yesterday, I dragged home a table … I didn’t go looking for it (specifically) but there it was, sitting in a corner, all chippy and blue. I just knew I needed it.
Images of tea parties on the lawn, a table laden with flowers, and books, and candles, and food, and great light, filled me with excitement. A Somerset Life. A dream of mine.
But as soon as it was tucked safely in the back of my vehicle, the doubt began. It wasn’t about the money so much as the “uh, oh… do I really need to add another piece of junque to my yard? Well, probably not … but there she is.
As soon as I set the bouquet of peonies on it, I felt reassured.
It’s a harmless pastime, this hunting for treasures, dreaming of photo shoots and trying to capture, express, and share something that’s in my mind’s eye. And honestly, I’m blessed and thankful to have “found” it at this time in my life.
