A taste of 90 degree weather has put me in a summer frame of mind.
Too bad Seattle weather doesn't seem to agree.

I adore this little color palette.

I could keep the forest with me, even while working the summer days away.

This just screams "summer road trip," doesn't it?

I may or may not have a birthday coming up, and these may or may not be absolutely perfect little thank yous.

"Red Poppy tea bag holder , ring holder or spoon rest hand built pottery" by MarciG

I always think of poppies when I think of summer.  Mine are blooming right now (confused), but I remember my mom's would only open in the full August heat.

    I love everything on this, especially the colors! I used to have a poppy plate just like that, and I gave it to Goodwill, now I'm regretting it :(

    Are you really having cruddy weather? We're just a few hours north of you and we've had more-or-less blue skies since Friday... not to make you feel bad! :( Just think it's strange how weather can be so different a few hours away.

    LOVE those thank you cards - they're adorable! I have my eye on a few things this summer... I just bought a pair of white strappy sandals, but I'm saving up for a wraparound watch from La Mer, and maybe some more artwork for our house!
