Ah, yes. It speeds up now. I remember.

Yes, I was thinking the exact same thing this morning.:(

Ah, beautiful! Nice way to start my morning. :)

Pure sweetness. :)

Yummy photos, I could eat them up!

Does it? Hasn't it just arrived in our part of the world? How can we make time stetch in the days that do manage to be sunny and warm?

The Bee looks so cute sitting in the windows. I hope all of you (Bee included!) are doing well after Violet's passing. *hugs*

Can't believe it's the end of July already ~ the last couple of days it's been really cool here in Portland (not complaining) and I can feel a change coming with the weather. Still loving when it gets warm in the afternoon tho.

your photos just make my day. sheer delight.

Beautiful! Your world must be so wonderful.

Can you please share details on the much coveted birthday wrapping paper on your previous post? Thanks!

Such peaceful pictures. I am trying not to jinx the rest of the summer flying by. I am so happy it is almost over :)

I love your wild flower beautiful and simple :)

i just want to dive head first into your shelves of fabric. that's not weird, right? :)

You take amazing pictures!!!!

You captured the cloudy summer morning just right. I'm heading off to the Falls to volunteer soon.. that's always fun. Ciao.. Teresa

I see Summer is lovely, where you are.
It's nice here, too.

Beautiful photos! I adore the embroidery, it makes me want to rush out and look for mustardy-caramel colored felt. It's funny how the seasons do this to us: we groove along in all their changes and yet each year we are surprised yet again when they start being their intense selves. (Here it's winter and there's a frost to face today as I head to work). Great post!

I looked at that photo of the embroidery and immediately thought of Salley Mavor's "Pocketful of Posies" - it's my absolute favorite collection of nursery rhymes because of the splendid embroidery on each page. I'm quite sure you have, or someone's mentioned it before, but I suppose I'll think of you now when we read it (which is often).

Everything beautiful there at your home. I know what you mean. I was thinking the same thing. Have a beautiful day. : )
