All summer we’ve been unable to use the living room.
The dolphin and seashell mantel decorations have just been collecting dust.
I decided to put the various pieces of the mantel décor away so I can be ready to add something more seasonal soon.
I wrapped all the glass and crystal dolphins in bubble wrap and packed them in a cardboard box which I am currently storing in the conservatory closet.
I also dusted and put away the conch shells. That leaves me with an empty mantel.
I’m challenging myself not to decorate the mantel until I can get into the living room again. I’m so frustrated with the long trim boards I may just move them in front of the fireplace so I can dust and vacuum.
While I was in dolphin mode I used Gorilla Super glue to reattach fins on dolphins that received some very rough treatment.
I don’t know how the wooden dolphin was damaged. Unfortunately it didn’t repair very well and the glue shows. I think it’s not quite lined up because it just didn’t want to stick.
Charlie also asked me to repair a his broken reading glasses which I’m fairly sure will break apart again after one use.
I’m sad to see summer end but the trees are beautiful here at The Glade.
What’s your favorite season?
