Is it too early to be thinking fall?

Boy, this heat is MISERABLE! I've had no zip and no energy to move (and that's even in the air conditioning). We are doing some outside work at our house and of course the time that we would be doing it, would be the hottest days of the year...ugh, it's just TOO HOT.

So, I'm thinking fall. How about you?! Actually, I'm thinking winter and snow, but just pretend you didn't hear that! ;)

We are slowly getting to orders and trying to think of fall for new things...

And with that, here is some of our Halloween crocks. We sell these for $18, and we have a few ready if you would like to place an order for some. We can write whatever you wish on them, it doesn't have to say what these two say....take a look:

Think *COOL* my friends!

A Trip to New England part 1

A little over 2 weeks ago already, my family got to take a vacation up north. We packed our bags and we set out for the open road for a very highly anticipated trip to one of our most favorite parts of the country. Our first state stop would be New Hampshire.

We stayed with family and we had the most wonderful, relaxing time. It was just some well needed down time of catching up with each other, constantly eating and being poolside for almost the entire time we stayed there.

Ahhh, this was the life! :)

*mmmmmmm, lobstah! ;)

We were there over the 4th of July and we took in a small hometown parade that sure did showcase it's New England American heritage.

It was a beautiful parade full of really beautiful oldies....

nice set of wheels! :)

*and check out this girls pink tractor....LOVE IT!

After our stay there in New Hampshire ended, my family drove farther north...Heading in the direction of MAINE! Oh, I how thee Maine! We didn't have a real long time to spend there, but we made every second count while being there.

*had to have some yummy Maine blueberry ice cream!

I did some shopping...

*this is the main headquarters for the Stonewall Kitchen store....loved the grounds!

We of course had some beach time along the coast in Ogunquit.

*my cutie pies posing

And then headed even farther north and up the coast to Kennebunkport.

BEAUTIFUL, isn't it?!

We drove up the coast and went to check out George W. Bush's compound. Soooo beautiful.

*here, let me get you a little closer...

*in case we decided to get too close! ;)

Can you imagine living here?

The next leg of the trip is in part 2...which is FULL of prim eye don't want to miss it!

A #1 Love...

Oh, how I love fresh cut flowers from my gardens. Nothing can soothe the soul like posies placed throughout the home.

On a recent trip to....(you'll soon hear all about it), I found this oh so lovely flower basket. It was just what I had been looking for....something to carry over my arm to hold all those fresh cut flowers as I stroll along the gardens....I'm a bit of a romantic, eh?

There's just such a welcomie feel that flowers give.

Can you tell I love flowers?

Have a beautiful day!
