Decorating ideas

There's an imaginative use of rope and heavy cord in furniture and accessories in the July/August issue of Country Living. The spool table, light fixtures, and crocheted rug were different. Good use of eye-catching outdoor thermometers too; I liked the one with the 3D numbers.

There were some craft ideas also, including the use of clip clothespins. And you can wear little watches on a charm bracelet. I enjoyed the photo spread of green flowers, such as the Green Jewel coneflower, though they didn't include the green rose, which we give as bouquets for a completely different gift.

There were some beautiful home makeovers, and this issue's real estate sampler focused on homes with ponds and streams. There were also entertainment and food suggestions. Who'd have thought of spicy corn on the cob?! But I really liked the idea of the catered gourmet outdoor dinner parties...
