Ich zähle die Tage bis die Sonne wieder scheint und ich draussen auf der Veranda / Terasse sitzen kann. Am Wochenende ist es dann hoffentlich soweit! Bei mir ist die Regel: An Sonnentagen ist die Verandatüre immer offen, denn das ganze Leben findet draussen statt. Freunde wissen das & kommen gleich direkt über den Sommereingang rein. Denn der Wintereingang ist die Haustüre, für alle Tage wo es regnet & kalt ist (der Eingang kommt ja dann wieder früh genug zum Einsatz!). Wie gefällt Dir denn Dein Sommer bis jetzt? Bist Du zufrieden damit?
Last weekend my hubby had invited some friends over. Luckily the weather was nice so that I was able to perform an official grand opening of the „outside cake buffet season“. I love this „season“, as I can finally test and use the new furniture that I bought during the cold winter months. First outside buffet of the year usually also puts my hubby’s endless questioning to an end. „Where are you planning to place all these new vintage armchairs ?“. I also tried two drink dispensers with tabs that I filled with ice, fruits, juice and water. They worked amazing and they will definitely be used all summer long.
When my friend discovered a soft serve ice cream maker in the US my only question was „Is it available in pink ?“. With her answer being „yes“ the order was placed. This weekend, just in time with the beginning of the German summer, we are „all set“ for Brownies with Ice Cream and other topping experiments. Of course, it´s all low fat Froyo, at least the ice cream. I am not so sure about the toppings.
To clear out all sorts of crafty leftovers, I came up with the idea for this summer bunting. Little crochet things, buttons, tapes and laces are piling up everywhere at our house and their presence might get questioned by the hubby. So a bunting is the perfect camouflage. However, since the weather is not so nice yet, I had to put it up indoors. I am very happy with the result. Although it looks a little bit too white to me. I will think of adding a vintage look by my usual „Earl Grey“ tea coloring before I put it on the front porch.
