Christmas in JulyPosted: July 25, 2012
There’s nothing quick about home renovation. Or, at least there’s nothing quick about my home renovation. Weeks–no months–ago, hubby and I ordered a few items for our home including a light to hang above our kitchen table and a new dining room table. We ordered them so long ago, we practically forgot about them! Finally, things are arriving and it’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas around here.
First the kitchen light…
Now for the dining room table. Almost as soon as we started working on our living/dining room, I was ready to get a table. When we moved from North Carolina nearly three years ago, we sold our dining table. I loved it, but it just wasn’t worth moving into our downsized apartment in Central PA. So, we haven’t had a dining room table in nearly three years. Maybe it’s just a table to you, but to me, it’s family holidays, new memories, and time well spent with loved ones.
Lastly, while on vacation in the Outer Banks, we purchased a Curved Arm Canvas Double Swing from Nags Head Hammocks for our sun room. Okay, we really didn’t have to wait long for this one. It was delivered the day we arrived home from vacation. It’s like we brought a little piece of the beach home with us. This swing is seriously comfortable. I know there will be many a long, summer afternoon naps on it in my future.
July…when did it get to be July? The summer is going by way to fast. Lots more renovation and country living updates to come.
