I just removed our summer garlands – and almost summer along with them! At least it feels a bit chillier, but I don’t mind – as long as we still can enjoy being outside, it’s all good.
The summer garlands are made out of old pieces of fabric – linens, table cloths and what have you, that I cut and sewed together using bias tape.
I hang them out at about Midsummer’s just to get a little bit of extra summery feeling. Sometimes our Midsummer’s can be rather bleak affairs, but hanging up a bunch of garlands that sort of look like white laundry out drying always gives it that extra nostalgia kick.
I love making up my own traditions in this way!
