I started June with a great southern event. The Atlanta Food + Wine Festival was an exciting way to start the month. So many creative chefs and mixologists to delight in. I honestly love high Southern cuisine.
I also planted a White Garden at the mid-century home as we were getting the home ready for resale. The patio area is very shady and needed a bright pop to help welcome guests. No better way than to plant a garden of white flowers and variegated leaves.
A white garden highlights a shady area and will make a favorite outdoor evening spot almost glow in the dusk of the night sky.
There was lots of gardening going on in June.
I did a tutorial on dying Queen Anne's Lace using food coloring. The next week I made some beautiful hydrangea bundles.
After all the gardening was done, we returned to the mid-century remodel to complete the dining + living room reveals.
One of my favorite recipes is my BBT sandwich. It's simply bacon + basil on country toast. So simple yet so tasty! I never tire of its fresh flavor on an early morning.
In our little town we have a bustling market where, if you're able to hit it before 8 a.m., you'll find an array of homegrown vege's to tempt you for the night's dinner.
June was a busy month mostly filled with outdoor chores + activities. The ample rains we've been blessed with have delighted my gardens. I've never seen them so abundant and full of blooms as I have this year. It was a beautiful June in every way!
Oh, and more exciting than all the outdoor goodness was seeing my blog redesigned into something beyond beautiful. I love it's new look, and can't wait to visit each + every day. Jenny from Maiedae has such an eye for detail and knew exactly what I wanted - even before I did. She + Leah have been such a pleasure to work with. I look forward to collaborating with them again in the future. If you're in the market to give your blog a fresh new look, I highly recommend them. Such beautiful young ladies with such great talent!
