Saturday Ethan and I ventured north to Sutton, a little town on the Matanuska River, for a garden party. It was wonderfully rustic, with a winding gravel road through forest and a green clearing with this zen view of the mountains. We strolled through the garden with established broccoli, kale, sweet peas, delphiniums and the like, and played a friendly game of croquet after the pot-luck style dinner. It was quite refreshing to sit outside and relax, meet new people and enjoy the summer. And it certainly made me want a plot of land to cultivate!! So charming.
Well, here she is! All I have left is to repaint the top and fill it in. It is amazing to me how quickly I finished it, almost the length of summer. When I go back to the craft store I think I’m going to pick up a medium brown to touch up the doggie though…not enough contrast against the snow for my liking. But overall I’m pleased!! What say you?
Do you own any clothes from Boden? I personally don’t, but their Autumn 2014 collection has me itching to change that. I’ve always enjoyed flipping through Boden catalogs; when my mom told me she loved everything in the new edition, I realized I hadn’t received one since moving to Alaska! While I anxiously await the products in print to grace my mailbox, I’m going to pine after these picks. Doesn’t it just make you excited for fall?
