I'd planned to do more blog posts this week, but life got in the way. Wednesday the morning was spent taking Freddy to the vet with a turnaround after returning him home again to go directly back to the Target in the same center. Freddy is the black kitty in the middle. By the time the errands were finished it was afternoon, when it dawned on me that hmmm, the house seemed awfully warm. That was because the ac had quit working. Sigh. A repairman came out and worked, pronouncing it fixed. Except we woke up the next morning and it was hot as ever. Thursday was spent trying to move as little as possible while waiting on his return, which didn't happen till late afternoon. This time it was more successful, and the house is cool again, thank goodness! Friday was spent playing catch up on laundry and other chores abandoned in the heat, so no decorating or crafting got done, but an effort from the long weekend is shown below:
I have a modest collection of globes and used a few in this small display. The banner is made of vintage maps from an old calendar. The top of this small chest isn't large enough to include the larger, full-size globes, but these seem like a fun way to celebrate the summer season of travel. Who knows where that gnome plans to roam? Do you have plans to see the country or the world this summer? What getaway appeals to you most, a visit to relatives, a cabin in the mountains or cottage on the beach? Or will you stay closer to home and go on mini-trips?
