Can you imagine what it must be like to be two or three and discover a sandbox this big?




This one has a much better wading pool and rock selection than the one at the park.

Hi. I'm back. Pia asked me today if I ever intended to blog again or was I staying on permanent vacation. I knew she was going to ask me that. I'm back, really....and I have some lovely treasures to show you this week and some really exciting interviews and posts lined up for next week.

I always feel like a new year starts in the beginning of September, do you? Long after my school days I still feel like you get a fresh chance to make things happen, or change things up once the "school year" starts. I rode through the park this afternoon and there was just a hint of fall in the breeze, a few leaves have already fallen. I love summer but I really LOVE fall so this is one season change I always look forward to. But before I go jumping seasons let me show you summer by the seaside.

not enough hours...

I tried. It is planned out in my head, my lovely next post, but there are not enough hours in the day. We are going away for a couple of weeks, very early in the morning and with the packing and the cleaning....well you know how it goes getting ready for a trip. I though I might just finish but my dear dear little guy can sense in his sleep how much I am trying to cram into the wee hours and has woken up every hour on the hour for the last few hours...grrrrr.


SO I am going to wait because I really want to give this lady all my attention. What i am going to show you and direct you to is the work of her husband, Jon Von Pamer. He is a wonderful photographer, here is his website-check out his notebook section. He is part of a project called The ones we love which is breathtaking. Really, I could spend so much time looking through this site. It is very inspiring and makes me want to really capture and document the ones i love.
I will be back in two weeks. I have some great things to show you and I hope to have even more after this little break.

I will definitaly have a full post about this lovely lady.

in the works...


I know I have been posting a lot of flowers lately. I promise I have some other fun things in store for you, hang in there while I get these blooms out of my system. Here is a little peek at something in the works.

From Uniform Studio Journal

Martha at Uniform Studio has a really lovely blog. I found this the other day and had to share it, I think it is so beautiful. She originally made it as a contribution to this project, titled "summer is...". Her stunning piece has inspired me to create my own little ode to summer.
