We've had so much rain and cool weather that summer seems like a magic trick gone wrong.
I wrote the above sentiment on my chalkboard and set it on the mantel as a means of inspiring myself.
Several years ago Deborah gifted me with some vintage paper. She had it all organized and dated - some sheets from pre-1850.
I've been storing it all this time, and decided that no one can appreciate it in the closet, so I took some of it, rolled it up and tied it with vintage blue seam binding and placed it in the tall glass container. I like the look of old paper a lot. And the sea shells under glass remind me that surely the sun will shine again and I'll get to the beach.
