This week let's giveaway a
It's that time of year, when we all start to focus on nature...
let me just throw up some random summer things I like: Thistle
fruits, vegetables and of course my favorite of all, lemons
Ever since I spent a beautiful honeymoon (19 years ago today) with my hubby on the island of Capri, Italy and the Amalfi Coast, I have been literally obsessed with lemons and images of lemons in art. I know this seems random but everywhere you go in this other worldy place on earth, lemons infuse. I will never forget one evening in particular walking up a hill to a beautiful outdoor restaurant. We sat under a pergola covered with lemons perfuming the air. This memory stays with me and whenever I think of Italy, lemons come to my mind.
What a treat when I received this lovely gift:
a handwritten note and two tiles.
How did she know I love lemons?
As a trivet for a summer picnic perhaps?
A centerpiece on my table under the pergola.
Hang them next to my other lemon pieces of art?
What's a girl to do with so many choices -
why don't you leave me a comment and suggest how I can incorporate them into my summer decorating and entertaining plans?
hydrangeas, tulips, citrus, Parisian markets, meadows and pastoral scenes -- it seems MollyCoddle tiles have an inspiring tile for all our favorite images --
check out the array of tiles to choose from on Mollycoddle website
In one week I'll randomly choose a name from those of you who have commented
will send along your very own tile.
and to all my viewers --
I hope you win a lemon tile for summer.
