my little piece of heaven

June 8, 2017   /   byCozy Memories  / Categories :  Feeds

Late spring is a very enjoyable moment of the year in the region I live in (departement of Hérault, if you look on a map, southern France). Early autumn as well, by the way.

We worked our butts off at the end of winter & at the beginning of spring, for transforming one corner of our garden into a much more beautiful & enjoyable one. And we succeeded. And we are happy and proud of ourselves as well. I grew up having a garden, but didn't realize back then how wonderful it was. Now I do understand. And I try to spend every possible moment outside, even simply for hanging my laundry to dry (another thing that makes me happy & that I longed for for so many years !!). I'm so glad to get out & sit in my little piece of heaven !

I've grown ipomoeas from seeds & some of them are expanding exponentially ! I loooooove seeing these blue flowers pop every morning !

The photos above are from the front yard, and the photos below are in a back yard corner that was really neglected by the previous owners. Now this is the view (photo below) I get everytime I enter this little corner ! (we've added the bamboo fence too, and I think it has now a Japanese feeling to it) Just lovely, isn't it ? Can you notice the slightly different hue of blue ?

Now let me wish you all a beautiful weekend ahead (soon). I hope you enjoy seeing these photos as much as I enjoy my garden ! Please if you don't have the time to comment (or are unable), please consider clicking the little heart ♥ below ⤵︎ so that you know you stopped by & liked what I posted. (otherwise how could I know someone still visits this blog ?) Thanks a lot for your time & kindness.

Lanes and Lapses

This was my second year as a counselor at Camp Workroom Social and I was determined to be smarter in the wardrobe department than I was last year. I wanted clothing that was practical, stylish, comfy and interchangable. I already knew that I was bringing one pair of shoes (some back lace up boots which were much better than the heeled ones I wore last year) so everything needed to go with those and jeans. My color palette would be black (no surprise there), gray, white, blue, and camel. These really are the colors I wear all year long anyways. I am such a sucker for neutrals. This gave me the perfect excuse to sew up a few new things. After thinking about the criteria above, I settled on the Ebony tee in the cropped length and the Seamly Wrapped Cardigan which I had sewn up last year and loved. As for fabric choice, that was easy. I loved working with the merino wool jersey last year from The Fabric Store. They carry the perfect colors for my taste, plus the merino jersey feels so luxurious while still being washable. The perfect fall fabric in my book. I ended up […]
