Summer Garden Party

with 11 comments

~*~*~

The English don’t cope with the heat very well on the whole.  We get the sun so infrequently that we don’t install air conditioning (which would really help) and leave it to the last minute to purchase electric fans by which time the shops have run out of them or not bothered to stock them at all.  However, it is noticeably warmer in the south of the country and even quite humid so here we do daft things like car boot sales and garden parties at times when we’re all wilting in the heat.

Parasols or sun umbrellas or put that thing up pronto because I’m dying of heatstroke, whatever they are called, are very popular. Hence, I was pleased to see this magnificent sun umbrella by Newchurch in the latest set, entitled “Miramar”.  The clever thing about this set is the masses of texture change options on both seating and pillows (which you can arrange yourself) plus the fact that to collect the whole set, you need to visit both The Home Show 2017 and ON9 July Event.

Other goodies I managed to collect before collapsing with exhaustion, are detailed below but I’d like to point out the retro record player by FIN, a real find at The Home Show 2017.  This designer does all sorts of retro furniture and décor, a lot of it covering the 1950s period which I think was a lot more exciting in the USA than in the UK, where we were really into picnics and worrying about the impending nuclear war caused by the Cuban Missile Crisis.   Great fun 🙂

Here’s all the Home & Garden items I used:-

    • *smiles* I’m just glad I don’t live in places where the temperature drops so low during the winter, the heat I can manage 🙂

  2. I hope you don’t puddle before the heatwave is over 😦

    I have got to get to The Home Show…I can’t believe I haven’t made it over there yet!

    • *laughs* We did have a massive thunderstorm last night that was rather spectacular with sheet lightening leaping across the cloud cover but not too much rain. Today it is still humid. And yes, the Home Show is fab – it’s on until the end of July.

      • I dearly love a good summer thunderstorm! It’s one of the few things I really like about summer 🙂

  3. Loved this post Moz! You are so right about us not being prepared! At least you have a sexy cowboy hat to keep the sun off your head! 😉

    • Awwws, thanks, Phen 🙂 And yes, this is my favourite buy at the recent Hairy Fairy 2017. The only thing is that when you kiss somebody you slice into their forehead with the hat which kinda breaks up the romantic moment *roars with laughter*

      • Haha! Hairy Fairy! What are you like! And there’s a lesson in there somewhere, never kiss anyone whilst wearing a hat!
