And the winner is....

Summerhouse Love
by Derya

Derya says "I'd call this 'Summerhouse Love', partly because it's on my mind a lot lately, but also because it reminds me of the washed-out colours of an Aegean summerhouse, with delicate white, blue and yellow floral prints in all the rooms. And the summerhouse romance novels I love reading in summer, like Colette's Le Ble en Herbe."

It sort of reminds me of the ambience of this picture on my calender for June of pressed blue cottons and white crisp linens with a pile of books for summer reading.
You can just imagine the view from the window of turquoise sea lapping the sandy beach.

I know they always say this, but it WAS so hard to choose. Thank you for putting so much thought into your entries and I think I may be calling on a few of you when it comes to yarn naming time! I'm going to have a look at the Cloud Appreciation Society site and some of the names brought back memories of holidays past too. I loved the fairy and nymph references. And the foody ones. I think we might have to do this again some time - it was fun!
