summertime and the colour is Louis Blue...

Well hello everyone...nice weather..actually feeling quite summery....Summery enough for an outside photo shoot no less!! Now the begginning of the week could have really killed my summer buzz...we had a problem with wasps this week, when i say `problem`, if you can remember the film `swarm` then you might get the general picture of what life has been like over here! My daughter had been off school sick and at one point we had to lock ourselves in the shop ...i`m embarrassed to say I did selotape the doorframes... and we had to call my husband to come and rescue us...2 days of hearing a bzzzzzing noise and trying to plug all the entry points to the house with filler etc and when we rang to get them dealt with we are told if they hadnt been there at least a week they woundnt have a nest to destroy yet so we would need to wait!!
       After wasps constantly getting into the house my husband made a gadget out of a hoover...some tubes and a jar of honey!!! So now we appear to be wasp free!! Clever husband!  Hence I`m feeling summery again and have taken back the garden!(which needs some serious work done!) I bought a new colour of annie sloan chalkpaint in Louis blue which I had been dying to try and its a really fun blue for summer, my daughter and husband where quite suprised when they saw me painting with it as i`m quite a fan of neutrals but I love this blue.. Its like a lovely strong country blue and it just had to be photograhed outside with the contrast of the green overgrown grass!
      I covered the chairs in a pretty blue and cream toile and even made some hearts...i`m not much of a sower!! I think the blue is nice when its used with dark wax which ages and tones down the brightness and it looks great when distressed with the warmth of wood coming through from underneath, for the right kitchen i think a dresser and farmhouse table would look amazing in it and if I was feeling brave i`d probably put it in a room with something painted green for a contrast!
Anyway,the sun is out , the sky is blue and now theres no wasps to spoil the view hehe! Have a lovely summery weekend ...if theres no sun where you are....skip this post...get a video to watch and buy some chocolate, i`m sorry I mentioned the sunshine!! XFiFi
