It's Happy Day, folks and how's your week going so far? Are you feeling good? Have you been busy? Bored? (I doubt that) Have you been working on Summer projects? Most importantly, do you need to take a sec just for you?
When I say "take a sec for me," that comes in all shapes and sizes. If you've been here long, you know that can come in alllll shapes and sizes.
Yesterday I did some fluffing. Do you like to fluff? It's my thing. I fluff all the time. I don't like my house getting too comfortable, you know? It needs to change things up a bit.
So yesterday at the grocer's I saw sunflowers...for $3.50! I brought those home, added a metal tray, one of my old fans, a candle, and a container of napkins and made myself a fun summery table.
A couple of weeks ago, I totally copied Sasha @ Lemonade Makin Mama and made my own "French" linen table cloth. I used regular red paint, taped off where I didn't want the paint to be and painted straight on to the fabric. I would have liked to go pick up a fabric that was more "linenish" but I already had this long piece of white sackcloth type of material and it looks pretty good. The paint did not fade in the wash like Sasha's did, so I just flipped it over and use it that way...the other side is way too dark for me.
Either way, I love it for summer. It's fresh and light. I saw another table runner in Country Living this month that might just have to make too...
So there's your challenge: fluff something for summer. Redo your table centerpiece, rearrange your furniture, switch out your pillows, clear off a table and set up a place for treasure from nature walks...just do something happy for summer to your house. You can be creative!
If you're new here and don't know how this Happy Day thing works: I give you a challenge and a week to do that challenge. You blog about it between now and then and come back next week and link up to the linky thingy and get a new challenge for the week...it's fun, you'll see! :) Also, please add my button from the sidebar and link directly to your post, not your regular url. Thanks!!
For last weeks challenge, you were supposed to make your summer list. Did you do it? And do you like how I timed it with the first official day of the summer season, June 20th?? I know, super clever of me...
I hope you know I'm totally kidding.
Ok, link up! :)
Happy Day Peeps!
