About busy life...

Life has kept us away from the computer for a few days....
Soccer tournaments to attend and win....High School finals to study for....
a Graduation party to organize...Father's Day gifts to be purchased and since the weather has been much better, even an occasional drive to the beach to pick up our girls and a little gardening have been necessary.

Today we are back in the store and decided to share with you some pretties that just came in, with the hopes of getting you "nest" inspired...


...to help you dream of fun summer days ...


...spent out in the porch or the backyard...


...to think of refreshing lemonade with friends...


But most of all to remind ourselves that:

"Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time"
~John Lubbock~

Wish I could do what the poet on your blog suggests! I never know how to slow down, by brain continues to spin 24/7! I love the old vintage sign. I'm a sucker for signs and thanks for the compliments on Romantic Homes. Unfortunately, I haven't got to see any of the article or pix's. Its not on newstands, so I'm hoping yours came in the mail and mine will soon. But thanks for letting me know!! Take care, Sue
