Afternoon Siestas and the Giveaway Winners :)

If you have a touch of creative ingenuity, which I imagine many of you do,
here are a few possibilities for you. Some of you may take them as they are, 
others may need an adjustment or two, but either way, you could have a good play 
with any of the creations below. All from House to Home.

A frame here, rolls of your favourite fabric there, a few twists
and ties and you have your own shady spot for an afternoon siesta.
Pretty easy living if you ask me.

  1. Looking forward to seeing your chandelier when you find it. I do love billowy white sheer blowing in the wind. I made such a contraption for our balcony which gets a lot of sun and it works like magic, gives privacy and also is most inviting.
    Congratulations to the lucky winners of your generous gift.
    To a great week

  2. What a pleasure it is to see what you put into your collage. I am particularly taken with the chair idea.

  3. I used to "tent" my bed as a child. I longed for a canopy, you see.

    Today we do have an old chandelier hanging over a dining table inside our huge magnolia tree. Way too humid and hot to enjoy it today, however!

  4. Ah perfection. It's what I need right now. Pity I spend siesta time at work :(

  5. I love these photos! In my neck of the woods the weather this summer has been too hot and humid to sit outdoors!

    On our back deck on a cool evening I love to sit out under the canopy of crepe myrtles with the candles flickering and the lighting buds glowing!

    I am so excited that I won your giveaway!

  6. Am I right in thinking you are enjoying "pinning'? I can't wait to see the finished result generated by your "to dos".

  7. Very nice, I could so have a siesta in the pink , not going to happen for a while . All our thoughts are with keeping warm

  8. Ooh, yay! I won? I'm so excited! Thanks so very much!
