I think everyone in the North East is feeling the effects of a long winter. It just doesn’t seem to end. Sure it’s April 3rd 2013 and it’s been spring for the past 2 weeks, but when will it feel like “Spring”?
When I think about it, I think we say this EVERY year. Spring isn’t the nicest season, at least not to me. I’m hot and cold, wet and full of pollen. It’s just blah. I think we have a childhood memory of spring that is not really a full memory of weather. It’s more about baseball, Easter, spring flowers and it’s closer to the end of the school year.
I want it to feel like summer. Like these pictures of my backyard where we live in the warm weather.
I want to sit under my deck roof and read a book or sit in the pool.
I want to eat under our pergola
I want to cut fresh sage that Confucius guards
Last year I took an old chandelier that we use under the pergola when we have parties. It’s looking a bit dusty and dark. I decided it needed an extreme makeover.
Spray paint is my best friend, I can change things in a few hours, which is exactly what I did. I changed the colors to bright turquoise and yellow. I changed the hardware that hold the crystals and even added a uber bright scrunchie to cover the chain and cord.
If I get sick of it, it’s easy enough to change.
I also changed a black candle chandelier. Another UBER bright project. It’s a fun look.
