Rain! clean slate and more seeds

 We woke up rain this morning and have had showers off and on all morning. It has been a hot dry summer so the water and cooler temperature are very much welcome.


Clean Slate -
  I got tired of the way our dining room was set up.  I took everything off the walls, then patched all the nail holes and touched up the paint.   For now, just the table and chairs are in here but they won't be looking like this forever.  I am not sure what I will do,  I just know I want some color this time.
 any suggestions?


More seeds
 I hope to have more seeds.  These are some pink and red geraniums drying.  I bought them as small plants and they looked beautiful blooming all summer.  I am not sure if their seeds will "work" though.
these are zinnias that I grew from seed - I am pretty sure their seeds will grow next summer.  Each flower has so many seeds in each one, it is really amazing.

  1. Hi Dear Friend,
    We got some of that wonderful rain. I can't wait to see what you do with your dinning room. I know it will be beautiful.

  2. Glad to hear that you got some much needed rain. We've had a rainy summer off and on, so we don't need what is coming down right now. Hopefully, it will be gone soon!
    Color in your dining room? How about the color on the legs of the bench in the photo? I notice that your background color is blueish/turquoise and the bags hung on the chair are blue. Is this saying something to you? You have probably noticed a lot of light turquoise around lately, would that feel good to you, do you think? There are many inspiration photos out there in that color. A great that I can suggest is http://www.houseofturquoise.com/ or http://www.restyledhome.blogspot.com/ click on Our Home and see her dining room, it is really pretty. That is one idea, anyway! Hope this helps a little.
    Hugs, Cindy S

  5. What cute bench you have at the table! I think painting all your chairs would be fun and adding some colorful art work would tie it all together.

  6. I do not know if geraniums will grow from seed but they are easy to root. Just cut off a piece and stick it in some dirt. In no time you will have roots growing.
