Allow to dry. Gather the four ends of the chain together, and thread them through an S-hook. Hang the assembly on a tree, and fill with an assortment of birdseed. LINEN LIFT Repurpose vintage handkerchiefs or linens as sachets filled with the soothing fragrance of dried lavender. Tied with ribbon, the pretty pouches also make a personal addition to any housewarming or hostess gift.

on the porch

OUTDOOR LIVING To celebrate these halcyon days of spring and summer, stage an impromptu celebration on the front porch. Hydrangea blue, jaunty orange, and sunshine yellow inspire the palette, so tuck fresh-cut flowers into a variety of on-hand containers to enliven the scene. Rely on pretty baskets and vintage linens for easy accents, then sit back and enjoy the view! A simple menu makes this party a snap.

Candles in glass vessels suspended from branches appear to float in midair, a dream-like backdrop as cicadas sing their soothing song. SOUTHERN GLEAM Cloaked in the brilliant hues of high summer, an abundant tabletop display anticipates flavors as bright as the setting sun. Crab…
