Saturday afternoon, several great friends, a boat, a river and sunny skies. The perfect recipe for a fun filled day enjoying boating on the Julienton River and the Intercoastal waterway. Of course we started out by having lunch at Hunter's, a small cafe overlooking the river at Shellman Bluff. Best way to get there is by boat! I had fresh brim...yummy! and upon leaving the dock, we ran into the catcher of our lunch...one of the local fishermen! It doesn't get any better than that!
Here's a couple of views from the boat ride!
Sunday...overslept as usual! I really must get home earlier on Saturday nights! But still had time to get a few things accomplished....first in the kitchen. Had considered a roman shade for the window to give it a softer touch...but when I spied this one at the World Market, perfect color and $10...well, it had to be.
But I would like to make one comment about hanging this type of shade...when you read the instructions (some do, you know!) take a sharpie and mark up ^ or down mark on each of the hangers. When you're up on that ladder and you can't remember which way it goes, you'll thank me! or when you get all three up there and you look back and realize one of them looks different...you'll thank me!!
Another thing I love about living in a more tropical environment is all the natural plants that grow outside your door! This is "ironwood"...not sure why they call it that except I've heard that it will take over your garden if you let it. So I keep cropping it back for kitchen decor..it will stay alive and green like this for several weeks!
Here's another outdoor plant that is awesome indoors if you have space for it...this one is in the corner of the studio! From outside it looks like I have a palm growing...
...and of course, I got around to adding to my blog posts today! So until next time...keep your brushes dipped in paint and your canvases glowing with color!
