August at Home

Tuesday, August 4, 2015

I cannot believe it is already August!  The summer has flown by as summers usually do.  Where we live the locusts are almost deafening and in another month or so they will disappear completely.  The shadows are beginning to lengthen and the flowers aren't quite as vibrant as they once were.  No worries though as there will be endless nights dining alfresco especially as the temperatures cool. I've rounded up a few goodies that are on my radar for August.


1.  Beach Print - Beachy photography has been all the rage and what better way to add a touch of summer to your home?  This one is a great deal!

2.  Brass Curtain Rods -  I've been crushing on these curtain rods for the longest time.  I might need to go ahead and pull the trigger this month.

3.  Stripe Table Runner -  With all the outdoor entertaining in our future a new table runner is in order.  These come in five colors too!

4.  Chinese Lidded Jar - It goes without saying that I'm forever adding to my blue & white collection.

5.  Zinc Pot - These come in three sizes and I would love to see them filled with pansies and kale this fall!

6.  Serving Set - This color capped serving set would be a nice addition to a dinner party and would also make a nice hostess gift.

7.  Talaiot Throw -  These throws look amazing!  I love the blue colorway.

8.  Buffalo Check Storage Basket -  I normally go for the basket without a liner, but buffalo plaid is having a moment and this is darling!

9.  Blue Swirl Taper Vase - These vases come in three sizes ranging from 8 1/2 - 11".  Would be lovely in a grouping or displayed individually with foliage or fresh flowers.

10.  One of a Kind Rug - This rug, just because.  No really, I have been searching for the perfect rug to go by our kitchen sink.
