Inspiration Avenue: Summer sun

What could be lovelier than a sunny summer day? Maggie (Magpie) asked us to interpret that for the Inspiration Avenue challenge this week. So instead of trying to make something for my Friday Inspiration Avenue post, I decided to take a photo, instead.



This photo needs little explanation. A cold glass of tea poured from a vintage tea pitcher overlooking a quilt top blowing softly in the breeze on my clothes line, is all I needed to show what summer sun means to me. Thanks for this challenge, Magpie. It was fun being outside on a warm summer day. Feel free to click to enlarge.

And please don't forget, I can't leave a comment on blogs with embedded comments and I can't send you an e-mail unless yours is on your blog or profile page. I'm going to repeat this rant message until Blogger actually does something about it!

Perfect for the challenge, and I must admit that I am SO going to copy you by using a photo....thanks for the inspiration- I've had a lot of Non-art stuff going on this week and didn't think I'd be able to participate!

Karen said...

Thank you for your comments about the stencils. I couldn't get on with the ones you mentioned either & am so pleased these are better. xxx

how I miss the sunshine to sit in or to hang washing out in. It has rained for 2 months solid since i got back to mum's in UK.
I've not been blogging too much about my news, and generally when i was I wasnt doing WOYWW so that is probably why you missed it.
lovely quilt by the way. Did you make it?

Oh this is a wonderful photo!!! I want a clothesline I can hang my quilts on! Actually I can put one up here at our new house but it would be in the shade and I wonder if the squirels would steal it?

Claire said...

i love your entry - so restful...
thanks for your comment on my blog :) and thank you for bugging blogger - the more of us who do so may(!) effect some improvements... it's very frustrating though, isn't it??

Magpie said...

Your vignette is so serene and inviting. I can just picture the warm summer breeze!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog and taking the time to leave a comment by email! Funnily enough, now I am having trouble replying to your email...

I have changed my comments settings so they are no longer embedded. I hope this will allow you to comment on my blog :)

Have a wonderful week!
