Summer Fanfare!

As those "lazy days of Summer" appear on the Prairie,
I've added a bit of  'Summer Fanfare'  to the Entertainment Center,
a subtle change to welcome Summer's arrival!

On Crooked Creektt, our Entertainment Center 
spans the entirety of the South wall in our upper level Living Room.

As the main focal piece in our Living Room,
in addition to housing our television, dvd and stereo,
it showcases some treasured heirlooms and memorabilia.

Atop the Entertainment Center,
to the far left is a trio of vintage heirloom oil lanterns.
The intricate, petite lantern sits atop a book 
giving it more presence and allowing it to be better seen from below.

Displayed in the center,
sets a heirloom vintage 6 pane window from "Mr. Ed's" childhood home.
This section of the upper area of the Entertainment Center 
varies with each Season On Crooked Creektt.

As the temperatures 
are beginning to appear more Seasonably towards Summer,
we are still enjoying  lush green grass and foliage here on the Prairie.
Therefore, I've placed my green urns filled with green hydrangea
to welcome the arrival of Summer On Crooked Creektt.

Placing one fern photo atop books
allows for better viewing from below and brings symmetry to this vignette.

To the far right,
is  our straw Angel combined with another oil lantern.

Subtle Seasonal changes 
welcoming the  'lazy days of Summer'  
in Summer Fanfare Style On Crooked Creektt!

Until next time. . .

Just a note:
Thank you for your faithful following
of On Crooked Creektt (Take Two)
during its re~creation process.
I am continually striving to complete
all of the design process, but have not
set up a gmail account at this time.
You may still reach me at my original
email address. 
Also, I will not be adding any Google+
features on this blog at this time.

"Mr. Ed" and I are honored to be designing

I thank you for your understanding in this matter.

It all looks lovely, Pat! I think it's time to make a couple of summertime changes here, too.

It really looks beautiful, Pat.
Being "in limbo", most of my decorating "stuff" is packed away so no changes around Sweet Nothings..just a vase or two of pretty flowers makes it summertime for me. :)
when you leave a comment, and I click your name to go to your still takes me to Google+...
just thinking if you want readers to come to your BLOG instead of GOOGLE+, you may want to change it.
Just sayin' in case you didn't realize it. :)
