Summertime.....and the living is easy!

I always get a slight feeling of melancholy as summer comes to an end, as summer is my favorite season of all. Winter drags on in my part of the world for what tends to seem like an eternity, and yet summer is here and gone in the blink of an eye.

Here are the things that I like best about summer:

-Not wearing socks! I live in sandals when I am out of the house, and bare my feet inside. My feet havent seen a sock in months!

-The long hours of daylight, enabling us to enjoy activities outside longer in the evening, and the early sunrise makes getting up a whole lot easier than the dark mornings of winter.

-The ease of leaving home without having to don boots, coats, hats, scarves and mitts.

-Summer vacation, soaking up the sunshine on a beach by the ocean or a lake.

-Relaxing out on the patio with a nice glass of wine.

-Eating meals "al fresco"!

-Summer sunsets

-Enjoying fresh vegetables and fruit from the farmers markets, especially, blueberries, peaches, lettuce, tomatoes, carrots and beets.

 -Driving on bare roads, and not having to be concerned about icy conditions, and blizzards.

-The sights and sounds of birds, bees dragonflies and butterflies. 

-Trees of green, and flowers blooming everywhere.

- And, last but not least.....sleeping at night with the windows open!

I could probably go on and on...but you get the idea!

What is your favorite season?

Where did the Summer go?

I am finally back after a lengthy time away! I spent the last several weeks  enjoying the amazing summer weather,  relaxing and spending lots of time with family and friends...AND....I managed to severely limit my time online, just like the good ol' days....almost!

 Now its time to get back to the routine of home life, and to start up the creative engines once again. 

As you probably know, I am always on the hunt for interesting vintage treasures, especially while I am travelling, and here is a look at what I found.

 We also hit up a few garage sales, while we were on holiday, and I scored this beauty for my displays!

I hope you all had a great summer and I hope to catch up with all of my bloggy pals over the next few days!
