It has been a while! I had a computer glitch last week as my macbook conked out and I had to get a new one up, organized, and running (and when I say "I," I mean the nice, helpful people at the Apple Store). Thankfully, problem solved, and I have a nice, lightweight toy to play with! It is awesome!
or, it could even be that my son and his neighbourhood friends had a lemonade stand this past weekend, but whatever it is, I have juicy, fresh, and "lip-smackingly tart" citrus on the brain!
I read once, a long time ago, that a bowl full of lemons is a very warm and inviting way to accent a home. I believe it was in an article about how to prepare to list one's home for selling. The recommendation was to place a bowl full of lemons on a table, and a plate of homemade chocolate chip cookies on the counter. Well, I liked that idea so much, I copied it. And I may have cheated just a little bit - I have, ssh, don't tell, plastic lemons! They look completely realistic, they never go bad, and one may have made a tolerable substitute for a mini nerf football at one point in time.
So, while I love lemons, as well as desserts made from lemons, I also really love the strong, happy, contemporary place that "lemon yellow" holds in our design hearts.
Now, I pretty much like Apothecary jars filled with anything - from bars of soap or sea sponges, to candy and cookies. But delightfully textured and fragrant lemons? Come on!!! :)
And here are some other inspiring ways to integrate this beautiful citrus fruit into your home décor - literally as shown above, and figuratively as shown here as one of my favourite "happy hues."

That's it from my citrus corner this evening. Thanks for stopping by.
