scenes from the cottage--hydrangeas and sunshine
sometimes i wish i could look in on our little cottage in the middle of the workday. when the sunshine spills into the living room around three in the evening and cuts a line across the kitchen counter. but instead, this little haven is only mine from the early evening until early morning. and as soon as my feet slip out of my heels and onto the hardwood floors, i just want to lay on our couch, pull open the blinds and let it have all its blessed influence on me. instead, i take pictures of the prettiness like a good blogger.
our hydrangea bush exploded while we were on vacation last week. we've got mason jars full of blooms in almost every room. because the bush is on the back side of the house, where no one goes. and it made my heart sad to think about the flowers reaching their little faces to the heavens and no one there to witness it. so even though purple and blue are very much not the color scheme of our house, a little cool tone influence is scattered all around, and i kind of love it.
