Our travels this summer have taken us to beautiful back country roads. More often than not we’ve found ourselves without cell service which is welcomed. The name of the game has been picking in uncharted territory. The further from home, the better as far as I’m concerned.
Typically there are more chickens than people. Oh, there have been so many chickens. Caged, penned, free range. You name it. We need more chickens in our life. That’s for sure.
There have been creeks, peaks and rivers. One gargling right by our back door at this cabin by the woods. Glamping at its finest.
Barns and dilapidated out buildings too.
And one memorable barn-red, covered bridge.
We’re getting ready for another adventure as we continue to check items off from our summer bucket list. How is yours progressing?
Summer breeze makes me feel fine!
This morning was one of those fantastic summer mornings that left me in a really fabulous mood. I woke up to a chilly summer breeze blowing in from the sea. The sun seemed a little late to peak. Just a subtle amount of light streamed in past the drapes.
I reveled at how perfect the morning was over a seasonal breakfast of yogurt, farm stand strawberries, homemade granola and local honey. And it dawned on me, that we’ve lived in this fantastic agricultural beach town for almost a year now. A year in Cape May! What a dream come true.
I got to work capturing the calm, morning light and snapping up some photos of this now finished caned chair.
The chair was given to me by a friend about a week ago. It spoke to me right away. Some just do that you know.
I knew it had to be painted dried lavender and I knew the caning had to remain natural. It is rare to find caning in excellent condition.
Last you saw the chair, it looked like this. Two coats of dried lavender with bonding agent. Perfection.
But wait! The chair got a soft, nearly silvery glow to it with a topcoat of white wax.
Summer breeze…blowing through the jasmine (or lavender) in my mind.
