winter or spring? I'm confused!



Sometimes it feels like we live in the Southern Hemisphere! As winter nears, it actually feels more like Spring. We have our windows open during the days, the curtains fluttering in the wind, the birds chirping happily outside. The light coming into the house has changed as well....here it is in this shot in the late afternoon...contrasting with the light of the lamp in the bedroom. I love the warmth of this rug...it's one of our few touches of winter in the midst of a spring like feel.

And we started our bbq season last weekend! Several of our neighbors dropped by the see what we were up to and many got ideas of doing some bbq-ing themselves! I didn't take any shots during the bbq...too busy cooking and eating actually! Maybe next time!

Is it a working lamp ?

Patricia, Lol, very strange indeed! Haha, what we all do without these little fun things from Ikea!

Haddock, it's a lantern with space for a tea light inside. It works really well even with the fan on or when it's windy outside, so it's practical.
