Last night I put a pan of blondies in the oven and while they were baking I decided to do a little summer spruce up on my kitchen shelves.
In honor of the first day of Summer, I brought out Susan Branch's Summer book and rather liked how the blue and white checks matched the ones on my mugs.
The cherries you see propped against the book are a recent find from the thrift shop. They're made out of chalk ware and have a little hanger on the back. Do you remember those from the way back machine? My mom once had some that were fish complete with bubbles. They made quite a statement in our 1960s era bathroom.
Now that my shelves are decorated, I'm ready for Summer.
Tonight we're going to an outdoor concert overlooking the lake.
The blondies will be part of the picnic we'll be sharing with our neighbors. It's the first time I've made this recipe, so I hope it turns out well. It sure does smell good.
The salt & pepper shakers are ready for Summer too.
How about you ~ are you ready?
