Almost Time to Say Goodbye to Summer

Summer days are getting shorter reminding us that fall is not far away. While summer will be missed, it is a great opportunity to switch things up a bit around my house. (Don't tell my husband... he thought we were done decorating a year after we moved in)
Thinking of color themes, rounding up objects around the house, possibly picking up a new item or two to complete the plan is half the fun. As exciting as it is, I will wait until September to make these changes. (After all, I am still enjoying summer and will miss it when it's gone).
Here is a picture of my dining room and how it's decorated for summer. Come September I will post my fall look.

Happy Monday

Happy Monday!
I am so happy to have great summer weather, but have been working on winter projects.
Just finished some Christmas stockings. Here is a one of them for a bit of Christmas in August. You will find this one and more in my Etsy shop.

Happy Summer!

Summer is passing by quickly. I'm savoring it as I know it won't be long before the cold of winter returns.
In honor of summer, I have made a cheery, summer purse. It is created from a mint-condition vintage table cloth and features beaded handles as well as a long removable.
Enjoy your summer and, hopefully, my new purse will keep that summer feeling around for a while.
