Summer Flowers

Mid-August…some schools here in central Ohio start tomorrow! Yikes! 1. Where did summer go, and 2. Who ever thought of starting school in the middle of August??? Don’t those administrators and school boards have children of their own??!! Don’t they know they’re “robbing” our children of carefree summer days??!!

The burning bushes are starting to turn ever so slightly, and I see the landscape crew gathering brown, dry leaves. But not in our garden!! Oh, no…not here! Our neighbor emailed us a week or two ago, observing that the leaves on their birch were turning, and my response was that the word “fall” would not be heard around here, even as our own birch starts its annual demise. Boohoo… I’m keeping my head safely planted in the sand.

Our flowers are still happy, and so I wanted to share them with you, as summer’s last hurrah. I may (or may not) have a fall tablescape for you next week—it depends on my ability to cope with the fact, my friends. Blogging is a bit like retail, isn’t it? We need to get our posts out early enough for them to be of value and inspiration to our readers, so in that vein I may be able to do a fall post—the sacrifices I make….We’ll see. (I LOVE summer, remember??)

Summer Garden @ Chickadee Home Nest Besides capturing the beauty and textures of the garden, I also love to photograph the light-and-shadow play in the garden. The metal wheel at the right edge is the wheel to our antique hand plow that I’ve dragged around from house to house for easily 20 years. You can see the beautiful handles on it here, where I photographed our Chickadee Baby Love’s tussie mussie.The hostas in the garden are new this year—a gift from my friend and hairdresser! Don’t you love perennials that bring back memories of people who shared them with you?

Summer Garden @ Chickadee Home Nest This nook is primarily red, white, and blue until August, when the purple coneflowers join in and start to prepare us for the change in seasons. Summer is red, white, and blue, until it’s time for a change in the “theme.”

Summer Garden @ Chickadee Home Nest The red…

Summer Garden @ Chickadee Home Nest The blue, and the white.

Summer Garden @ Chickadee Home Nest I love how coneflowers brighten the landscape with wild abandon.

Summer Garden @ Chickadee Home Nest

Summer Garden @ Chickadee Home Nest And then, of course, my beloved PeeGee hydrangeas burst forth in their soothing white. One day they’re buds, the next, it seems, they’re in full bloom. We held our Baby Love’s baptismal reception here at our home in mid-August when the hydrangeas were at their peak, so every year they remind me of that happy day.

Summer Garden @ Chickadee Home Nest Ummm…do you see dry leaves??? I don’t!! What leaves??

Summer Garden @ Chickadee Home Nest

Summer Garden @ Chickadee Home Nest Which is more beautiful? The one yet to burst, or the one almost there? It’s hard to decide.

Summer Garden @ Chickadee Home Nest And guess who else likes the PeeGee hydrangeas?

Summer Garden @ Chickadee Home Nest This is the second year for this Endless Summer hydrangea, and she grew “demurely” this summer. I have high hopes for her next summer, now that I moved her to a sunnier spot, but I am thankful that she gave us blooms in time for the little tea party we had after Baby Love’s piano recital (that’s another post!).

Summer Garden @ Chickadee Home Nest She IS lovely, isn’t she?

Summer Garden @ Chickadee Home Nest These are last year’s geraniums! And they came from cuttings from the year before (you can see my post about rooting cuttings here). I was so crazy about this Calliope Red geranium that I didn’t want to run the risk of not finding it again, so we took the plants to our office over the winter, and they survived (though a little leggy by spring). We’ll certainly do that again this year—that way we get nice big plants early! They sure are happy in the berry cart, aren’t they?

Summer Garden @ Chickadee Home Nest

So, Mary, Mary (not) quite contrary, how did your garden grow this year? We had so much rain in the spring and early summer that ours took a while to “catch,” but then, in the end, some of them took off and gave us a good show. I hope yours did too. Enjoy what’s left of summer!! The snow will fly in these here parts all too soon!!

Dance Recital Tussie-Mussie

Tussie Mussie Dance Recital GiftFor Chickadee Baby Love’s first dance recital three years ago, I came up with the idea of making a tussie-mussie for her, as a way to give her her flowers. When her second recital came around, I thought it would be nice to make another one for her (you can see two versions HERE, and more to come), and have made one for every recital since (two last year and two this year, for her piano and dance recitals). This year, at age 7, when she didn’t see one in my hands after her dance recital, she asked me if I had made one for her! Oh, my happy heart! She likes them! She likes the fact that I make them for her!

The Columbus Dance Arts Academy puts on an incredible program to showcase the incredible talent of their students. It has become such a big event that this year it was held at a theatre in downtown Columbus (Ohio)! (Which also explains why the dancers need to wear heavy makeup!) Baby Love was—appropriately, I thought—a Love Bug!

 Tussie Mussie Dance Recital Gift And here’s our very own Love Bug, aka Baby Love, enjoying the treats that accompanied her tussie-mussie. (More on the treat bags later :) )

Given her dance number, I set out to coordinate her tussie-mussie to the theme and to her costume~

Tussie Mussie Dance Recital Gift

The lady Love Bugs are buttons I found at Jo-Ann. Don’t they look right at home nestled in the hydrangeas in our yard?

Tussie Mussie Dance Recital Gift

Tussie Mussie Dance Recital Gift For the “roses” in the tussie-mussie I used Hershey’s kisses (how appropriate is that, kisses for our precious baby?!), wrapped in red tulle. I added silk rose leaves to make them more realistic, plus ivy and other greenery.

Tussie Mussie Dance Recital Gift  Her favorite, of course, was the fat lady Love Bug, made out of a Tootsie Roll Pop that I covered in red felt and added a pompom for its head. Little googly eyes and rhinestones on her antennae, and she was ready to attend the recital! (Since I’ve saved all her tussie-mussies and have them displayed in her room here at out house, the Love Bug and kisses were not eaten. There were plenty of treats to accompany the tussie-mussie and for her little brothers who benefit from her performance.

Tussie Mussie Dance Recital Gift Tussie-mussies need handles, in order to not crush them or damage the decorations, so another Love Bug button graced the top of the handle.

Tussie Mussie Dance Recital Gift

Tussie Mussie Dance Recital Gift THIS is what a Love Bug looks like!

And this…

Tussie Mussie Dance Recital Gift

And just in case you’re wondering why all the fuss, it’s for that smile…those sweet eyes..those beautiful curls…but most of all, it’s for her most beautiful heart.

Tussie Mussie Dance Recital Gift  I am blessed to be her Ata (ah-tah), and that she is my Baby Love.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`

The tussie-mussie idea came about as I thought about a gift to give her after her first recital, and I’m glad I’ve been able to carry it on to now have it be a tradition, because I find that it’s not easy to come up with ideas that relate to the theme. I hope you’ll share the ideas you’ve come up with for recital gifts, because I’m sure many of our blog friends will welcome them!

Red, White & Blue Inspiration, Part 2

Hi, All! I love patriotic holidays and red, white & blue so much that I have tons of pictures to share, even after last week’s post (here). While last week was mostly about red, white & blue gardens and other great inspiration from our trip to Newport Beach, California, this post is more about home—our home specifically.

ChickadeeHomeNest Southern Living Patriotic tiered basket-001The table is set! Won’t you join me for a patriotic luncheon? I used my Ballard Designs Southern Living tiered basket (love, love, love it—it’s so versatile!) as the main attraction and to save room on the table by using it to hold the dishes, napkins, mugs, etc.

ChickadeeHomeNest Southern Living Patriotic tiered basket8 The flag is actually a scarf (coincidentally, a souvenir from our Newport Beach visit). The Warren Kimble Colonial sugar and creamer are ready for the coffee to accompany dessert, which includes fresh fruit: cherries in a pewter star dish (a GREAT gift from a friend many years ago), and strawberries in a blue-and-white bowl. The silver underplate for the strawberries complements the pewter star dish and adds a bit of “ummph” to the bowl, rather than setting it directly on the table.

Collage, Patriotic, 6 2015

As you know…no holiday decorating is complete at our house until the china cabinet is done! As you also know, I’m The Lazy Decorator, so a few touches of red added to the blue-and-white Spode Delamere, and voilà! A subtle “salute” to a patriotic holiday! 

 ChickadeeHomeNest Patriotic China Cabinet

ChickadeeHomeNest Patriotic China Cabinet4 After our luncheon many of the pieces found a home in the china cabinet.

ChickadeeHomeNest Patriotic China Cabinet5

ChickadeeHomeNest Patriotic China Cabinet8 These flag stirrers were a great find (wish I remembered where!), as was the blue-and-white pitcher—DO remember where I found it—at a second-hand store!

ChickadeeHomeNest Patriotic China Cabinet3 Hardly is there a time when you don’t find blue hydrangeas somewhere in our home—and a great addition they are to our red, white and blue decor!

For some reason I feel like people are decorating earlier for the Fourth this year—have you noticed that? I don’t mean stores—they had Fourth of July merchandise out in March, I believe! Do you think it’s the earlier-and-earlier Christmas decorating habit that is spreading even to the Fourth? Will be, like the stores, be decorating for the Fourth in June? Or just carry it over from Memorial Day right into the Fourth?

Speaking of Memorial Day, I have one more picture to share with you! We were in Florida over Memorial Day weekend, and thinking ahead, I took the flag scarf, AND A SMALL FLAG, in order to observe that day while we were there~

Chickadee Home Nest, Memorial Day Remembering those who serve and have served is important—even while on vacation. Thank you to all of them, and their families.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Since I’m seeing more patriotic deco, I’m feeling pressure to get my decorations out. I also want to get my posts done, in the hopes that they’ll offer some ideas and inspiration to you. I get so many ideas and inspiration from you all, that it’s the least I can do! :) That’s what blog friends are for, right? Next week’s post will be the front porch, so stay tuned!

Red, White & Blue/Patriotic Touches

 

Hi, there! I’ve been gone for quite a while! I have no explanation as to why I’ve been out of blogland, except to say that I don’t know where the last six weeks have gone! I hope you’re enjoying your summer!

Those of you who follow me (thank you!!) or know me, know that I absolutely love to celebrate patriotic holidays, so it’s not surprising that it’s the Fourth of July, my second-favorite holiday (second only to Christmas and its true meaning), that brings me out again!

The Fourth of July is such an awesome opportunity to not only celebrate our freedom, but to reflect on it and what it means. Having left Cuba as a young child, my parents brought my little brother and me to this great country seeking not financial gain, or a better standard of living…oh, no…it was something much more fundamental than that. We sought only FREEDOM. Knowing what the loss of freedom really is, once re-gained it is all the more precious.

I suppose there’s some sort of psychological connection in this, given that the Cuban flag and the American flag are both RED, WHITE, and BLUE, but those colors, in  just about any display or item, stir something in me that I find hard to articulate—PRIDE, LOVE OF COUNTRY, FREEDOM, RECOGNIZING THE PRICE THAT SO MANY HAVE PAID—INCLUDING THEIR FAMILIES—TO GIVE US OUR FREEDOM.

American flag, The Memorial Tournament, Muirfield Village Golf Club OUR AMERICAN FLAG, The Memorial Tournament, Muirfield Village Golf Club. Love the SIZE of this flag, and I even love the servicemen and women crouched before it.

The Cuban flag. (Source: Wikipedia)

So now that I’ve explained my love for all things RED, WHITE, and BLUE, I wanted to share some pictures I took while we were in the Newport Beach/Corona del Mar (California) area last June. They were ALL DECKED OUT for the patriotic days of summer, and I was lovin’ it!

Newport Beach, California Highway A1A topiaries The shark topiaries along Highway A1A in Newport Beach are ready for the Fourth of July—sunglasses and all!

Newport Beach, California Highway A1A topiaries Here’s the whole family school, dressed in their patriotic best!

Red white and blue garden, Lily of the Nile, aganthus The landscaping at our hotel was also ready for the patriotic holidays…a flower show after my own heart! I don’t seem to have much luck with lobelias here in Ohio, but they flourish in these parts of California, and they’re the perfect blue for a RED, WHITE, and BLUE garden!

Lily of the Nile, aganthus Did you notice the agapanthus (also known as Lily of the Nile) in the prior picture? We were there during the June gloom, but these are so striking and add such beauty and texture to the garden! No wonder they’re planted everywhere!

Collage, Aganthus, Calif 2013 These beauties would be AWESOME in our RED, WHITE, and BLUE garden!

Palm trees, Irvine, California I know, I know…this has NOTHING to do with red, white and blue, or patriotic gardens, but I just had to share these gorgeous palm trees with you, since these, too, are favorites.

Juxtaposition, Crystal Cove, Newport Beach, California Juxtaposition (http://www.juxtaposition.com/) is ALWAYS on my must-visit list when we’re in the Orange County/Newport Beach area. Great, interesting selection (more pix below!), and who.can.beat the scene?? You can see it in the reflection? That is, if you can tear away from trying to see all the patriotic details in the window! It is right across the Pacific! We of course also visited the Starbucks there in the Crystal Cove “strip” center (it’s a crime to call it a strip center!), and of course sat outside to just absorb the view into our very bones!

Juxtaposition, Crystal Cove, Newport Beach, California How’s this for another beautiful patriotic display?

Juxtaposition, Crystal Cove, Newport Beach, California Lots of blue and white clothes, artfully displayed with touches of red.

book: The American Flag, Mary Emmerling, Red white and blue, Juxtaposition, Crystal Cove, Newport Beach A w-o-n-d-e-r-f-u-l book (more below!), by, of course, Mary Emmerling.

book: The American Flag, Mary Emmerling, Red white and blue, Juxtaposition, Crystal Cove, Newport Beach What a treasure trove of Americana this book offers!

Juxtaposition, Crystal Cove, Newport Beach, California Another beautiful patriotic display…this is the shop to visit for RED, WHITE & BLUE decor!

Juxtaposition, Crystal Cove, Newport Beach, California Which of these would you like? The woven handbags/beach bags? The gorgeous blue shirt, or the white (in the softest, yummiest fabric!)? Or the scarf? or necklace?

Flower shop, Corona del Mar, Newport Beach, California Okay, now look carefully…half the bike is OUTSIDE, the other half is INSIDE! LOL And so pretty to boot!

Flower shop, Corona del Mar, Newport Beach, California The flower shop with the bicycle. Unfortunately, I didn’t get the name—I’d love to give them credit for their beautiful displays, so if you know what it is, please share! Oh, and did you notice the flower baskets by the door are, yes…RED, WHITE, and BLUE?

Rendez Vous French Bakery, Corona del Mar, Newport Beach, California Even the store signs create a patriotic scheme! (And by the way, we had DELICIOUS pastries at Rendez Vous!)

Well, are you MORE in the mood for the Fourth of July—or any patriotic holiday—after this run through Newport Beach? I certainly am! I hope to be back soon with some more RED, WHITE, and BLUE, so early wishes for a happy and safe Fourth of July! In the meantime, I hope to visit many of you for more inspiration!

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you’ll leave me a comment to let me know you were here—I’m thrilled to know you stopped by, and I’ll always visit back and comment too.
