In the hammock...

Naps are the adult version of a child's fort."

Are you for real June? Is this heavenly retreat really in your back yard? I thought you were my friend...why do you make me jealous EVERY TIME I come and visit?

Now I'm all ruffled, I think I'll just lay here and rest. Some tea would be nice. Oh and these are my favorite magazines...I just love Country Living, how did you know? These linens are soooo soft and smell so sweet...or is that the lovely flowers you just cut?

Whatever it is, I'm feeling better now. Thank you for the much needed rest...you are still my friend and I just love coming to visit!

I'll share the hammock with your other friends...NEXT please...

everything vintage

Okay, so hammocks are the one thing that when I'm in one, I can feel pain leave certain parts of my body. My old TCM advisor told me it was the ropes hitting certain nerve points and relieving the negative energy. Now, I don't know a lot about negative energy but I know it made me feel good.

Love your setup.

Sharing with Sherri said...

Oh June...That looks like such a wonderful for an afternoon nap, and lately it seems like I've been needing one on most afternoons! Those cool, pretty pastel floral pillows are calling to me! ....Okay, I'm on my way!

Hugs,
Sherri:)

Hi June!!
You hammock looks so comfortable & inviting!!
We once had an old fashioned family doctor that said to me when he was treating me for exhaustion after my Mother passed.. "Be kind to yourself. The nicest thing you can do for yourself is take a short nap. It re-energizes you." Know what?? It does....
If you have not visited my blog yet come over as I am having a 3 day quickie give-away!
Love,
Marilyn

WOW! That looks like it should be on the cover of a magazine! That looks so comfy and inviting. Have a great nap this afternoon. When you wake up....don't be surprised if you have a line waiting with all us blogger friends! LOL!

Carolyn said...

Hi June,
I love your romantic hammock! I agree it should be on the cover of a magazine-Victoria even.
Hope you have a chance to relax in it this weekend!

o.K. NOW I'm jealous :-)

May I come over? I just gave my son our hammock but it isn't as romantic as yours, my friend. What an elegant backyard set up.

And, orange carpets (Rebecca's post) you betcha! Orange couches, orange woodwork, orange kitchen, orange linoleum ... ark! I think I was 'out to lunch' on that era of decorating ... I about choked the other day when I saw orange furniture in a store coming back into vogue ... never again!!

This should be on the cover of Romantic Country. This shot is BETTER than the one they used a couple issues back.

You know what JunieGirl? Your talent amazes me. Your gift of putting things together is soooo very inspiring!

I believe the peace you carry within your hear can be seen and felt in both your pictures and your words...

Beautiful friend. Just beautiful! I LOVE IT!

Oh June ~ this looks simply magical!!! You have such a way with placing things...gorgeous! Happy weekend, xxoo, Dawn

The Pink Birdhouse said...

I have to agree with what everyone said, that hammock does look magical, and it looks inviting in every sense of the word. And those colors, the soft pastels that you used, I feel like I want to just jump in and let the stress ease out of my weary bones right this minute!! And Rebecca said it so right, your talent amazes me too, you just seem to know the exact things to match with each other and have it come out perfect on the other side!!! I love the little poem you added at the end, how true is that!! If I ever layed down for a nap in your delightful hammock, I fear hubby would never get me out of it again for the whole rest of the summer!! Thanks for your comment on my shoot-out post this weekend. You know how much I love it when I see your name in the comment list!! Sunshine and a comment from you, two things that i treasure in a day!! take care and have a great weekend, Debby

alicew said...

oohh so dreamy June! I long for a yard of my own, so I too can curl up and nap in a hammock! Just beautiful!

Tracie~MyPetiteMaison said...

Oh June, that hammock sounds so comfortable and it's so very beautiful. I don't nap (don't want to miss anything), but I'd love to read a book or magazine on that cozy hammock! Happy weekend to you.

lorhen82 said...

June, I was just thinking about hammocks the other day, remembering when I was a little girl and would laze away for a while in the one my grandmother had. Hers wasn't so pretty like this one, but it brought back some wonderful memories!

Have a great weekend! ~Lori

Bernideen said...

When I was a little girl some quakers lived across the street and had hammock on the side porch - I will always remember that!

Stephenie said...

Wow!!! That really does look like such a magical place..I love the beautiful fabrics...I think I'd be laying in that hammock all the time...Just stunning...

my day said...

Hello dear June,
ooh I'm sorry for my late reaktion, I must have been falling a sleep in your lovely hammock.The pictures are so beautiful, I think it should be in a magazine,really....
I hope the sun will shine every day now so you can enjoy laying there and have sweet dreams.
Dear hugs,Ingrid.

Rebecca said...

Dear JunieGirl (again),

Thank you for your visit...

Just had to come back and comment again on the comment you left on my post about owning a shoppe...

NEVER AGAIN! Not a big one anyway and not one I have to physically work. Everyone out there seems to want their own store...think it will be fun and romantic like your girl and I. The reality is this...IT IS WORK! SOOOOO MUCH WORK! Unless you have gobs and gobs of money and do it as a hobby (without the pressure of having to earn $$$) it ends up becoming a weight around one's neck. I loved it on one side and simply hated it on the other... :(

See...we think sooo much alike!

Good evening, June ~ Our pergola's over the upper & second terraces out back are our evening sits. There we watch the birds zoom in for dinner ... & enjoy our gardens & the evening air. Sometimes in the morn we will sit there also to watch all the squirrels running hither & tither ... they love to run up & down the trees & zip thru the gardens ... cheap entertainment ... chuckle. TY for popping by today ... I love the visit. TTFN~ Marydon
