a sudden late summer

I'd given up on summer but here it is, large as life in my back garden.

This internationally renowned, bird-winning blog decided to have no profound thoughts today and spent the afternoon failing to catch butterflies. When it rains again I'll get back in with the in crowd and arrange my designer handbags magnificently on cushions.


Does anyone know how to dry a wine decanter? Google has some suggestions but they are very lame, and how can I be fabulous if I struggle with detail?

  1. The only idea I have for drying a wine decanter is to fill it with rice. Of course I don't exceed the speed limit..... XXXX

  2. I agree with Jacqueline. I've heard of rice as well
    Good luck with the butterflies.
    Have a pretty weekend.

  3. Perhaps I'm missing the point. Why would you dry the wine decanter vs. simply filling it back up with wine?

  9. Thanks Crystal and Koralee! I've been inspired by Casapinka now to go for a pink shed door, so I'll soon have to build more sheds.

  11. Very mediterranean looking ~ gorgeous pics, Mise! Should you {shock} ever need to dry the decanter rather than implement the infinitely-more-sensible solution already provided by Devon, you could try a final rinse in very hot water then aim your hair blow dryer in there. Can't vouch for it but might be worth a go.

  12. I don't know anything about wine decanters but just had to say that even your sheds are adorable! Those are sheds, right?

  13. Alek, I'm very pleased to confirm that those are sheds, though I think the original old cottage didn't look at all dissimilar. It now has objets d'art and electricity...
