As September draws to a close, I’m once again looking back at my Dekko Loves for the month past. I am a total September girl, I just love the feeling of renewal and change at this time of year – probably moreso than in January, which may be surprising to some. For us, it’s been a month of settling into new routines at school, especially for my youngest, who started primary school proper this year. I feel so happy for her and proud of how she’s growing up into the fine little lady that she is!
So it goes without saying that with all three children off to school, September has also been a time for me to get on more freely with some more home decor tasks, so I’ve plenty to show you in the coming weeks!
For now, though, here is a glimpse of my #dekkoloves for the month…
June, as usual, has gone by in a flash and we are readying ourselves for our Summer holidays. I have just squeezed in a little moment here to share my #dekkoloves for June with you!
Here we go…
I was meant to be cheering my son on at his school sports day this morning, but instead I’m here, at the computer, a warming cup of coffee alongside me, writing up my Dekko Loves for the month of May. The reason for this change of plan? Three words: Northern. Irish. Weather. Always unpredictable, ever changeable.
Anyway, we have been promised several days of unbroken dry weather from this point on, so we’ll put today behind us and look forward to the first weeks of Summer proper. First, however, I’m continuing with my new monthly round up post ‘Dekko Loves’ (read my April post here) and I want to round off May with some lovely little things guaranteed to put some sunshine into your day wherever you are…
I hope you’re enjoying this glorious Spring weather we’re having at the moment! It really has been simply wonderful feeling the warmth of the sun once again and being able to spend all day outside getting jobs done in the garden, watching the children enjoy playing in the water sprinkler and having fresh food cooked outside on the barbecue and enjoyed in the last warming rays of the evening sunshine with a cold glass of wine. Life is infinitely better when the sun comes out!!
I recently started up a weekly round-up feature on the blog called Friday Five, the idea of which was to share with you some lifestyle, decor related and other inspiring things I’d been loving over the past week, however I soon realised this would be much better as a monthly post, which I have called “My Dekko Loves”. So, here we are with my first instalment for April, albeit a tad late as we are eight days into May… I promise to be better organised next month!
If you follow my Instagram account, I’ve also created an Instagram hashtag called #dekkoloves which I have been tagging onto some of my recent Instagram shots and I would love it if you could use it too! I will then be able to share some of your favourite decor discoveries, as well as my own, when I write My Dekko Loves round-up at the end of each month. It’ll be fun to see this monthly feature develop and I really look forward to seeing what pops up under #dekkoloves! You may also use the #dekkoloves hashtag on Twitter, just make sure to tweet @dekkobird and I will always retweet you.
