Howdy bird lovers! What’s going on in your quarter of the world?
This part of the world, Europe that is, is in a sporting frenzy. Soccer is on! As in the European Championships.
The Dutch are playing too. Although not as good as was hoped. I am not that much into the whole soccer game, but when the craziness starts it rubs off on me too. So instead of packing up my whole house in orange plastic, or donning myself with an orange outfit, I did what I do best. Create a little corner in honor of the games.
Another example of what I have started to call my take on “light decorating”. A bunch of flowers, some books and shell sphere to tie it all in. Oh and some vintagifying in Photoshop.
Do you think it will help?
I mean the team really needs some help. They lost the first game to Denmark, so basically they have to win every next one to stay in the tournament. I am not optimistic. Good thing I won’t lose any sleep over it either.
But still, it’s nice to share the excitement with everybody. I remember that from the World Championships two years ago when they made it into the final match (and lost ouch). I quite got caught up with it then. So much so I ran up a fever. Remember?
Things sure got crazy then. I even got up at the brink of dawn to photograph my childhood town’s square completely covered in an orange carpet.
Soccer does that to people. At least over here…..
Anyway. They are playing again tomorrow. And they have to win……
Ah well, soccer, it so isn’t my thing. And on any other day neither is orange. But I am kinda digging this little corner anyway. It’s bright and cheery and like a burst of sunshine. And we definitely could do with a bit more of that. It’s like Fall over here, with lots of wind and rain falls.
So are you at all into sports? And decorating in honor of sports? And is the sun shining where you live? Yes? Oh send some of that over to us please….
