Saturday at Camp Kilowatt

I'm happily ensconced at the camp this weekend, relaxing and enjoying some beautiful Gulf Coast weather.  Hubby and I sat on the deck last night enjoying the magnolia-scented breeze while bidding the sun adieu.  Today we poked around antique shops in a nearby town, but that's as energetic as we got.

Usually Saturdays are link-up days to share Rainbow Scrap Challenge progress, but I've finished all my neutral blocks for April and just have a group shot of all of them.  I hope no one is disappointed I don't have a virtual bakery offering today, although I'm enjoying a Biscotti di Regina with my afternoon tea as I type this!  Please do stop by Soscrappy's website to see what the other Rainbow Challengers have been up to this week.

Our antique hunting trip was more hunting than finding.  One of our favorite antique malls was inexplicably closed today, so no treasures were to be found there.  I did find a few small things, so we weren't completely unlucky!  This cute Tetley Tea tin caught my eye as I thought it would fit in well at the camp.

For now, its new home is on the entryway table Hubby built.  The pitcher belonged to my paternal grandmother and the tray in the background is an antique mall find decorated with (you guessed it!) sunflowers.  The shorebird was a camp-warming gift and the candleholders are selenite.  

There are some wonderful smells drifting up from downstairs where Hubby is cooking up some baby-back ribs.  I think we'll be dining al fresco this evening - got to enjoy every bit of marvelous weather before the relentless heat and humidity of summer set in!


  1. Your collage of neutrals looks so elegant and inviting.

  2. Your neutral blocks look lovely and the collection on and above your hall table is so inviting.

    (BTW, I came in from the Rainbow Scrap Challenge where I have linked to my neutrals post)

  3. I really like your neutral blocks! They are lovely.

  4. Your neutral block display is wonderful! I love your blocks.

    I love your camp display. Clean/neat/pretty!

  5. Wow sitting outside enjoying the evening sounds amazing. In England we have had non stop rain for well over a week (and they say we still have a drought!) Your neutral blocks look fantastic - looking foward to seeing what develops!

  6. have been so prolific and your blocks are divine!

  7. Love the group shot of the neutral blocks. Ribs... mmmmm. Have a rack for me!

  8. Your neutral blocks are so beautifully delicate :) and I love your picture of your entryway table. Gorgeous!
