Hmmmm ... no more trips to the beach this season... but then I love the holidays. I'll miss my garden but love the pesto and other things I made...cup half empty ...NO - half full! Jennifer

synchronicity? 300-300?
your pictures are bittersweet.

E. Charlotte said...

Nope 300 and 200 =500 divided by my age = 8.77 which means absolutely nothing haha

yes, I am losing my mind..and I actually did sleep!

Your photos are always amazing. You exude sophistication and style through simplicity which is very hard to do.

Yes, I feel it in the air and see it in the shadows....fall is near. As much as I will miss my garden, I will not miss the heat and I love Fall and everything cozy that it brings!

A sale, a sale, oh how I love a sale Z. I have missed your posts about it because I have been hanging around some very strange people lately. My sisters. For three days. All we did was eat and eat some more. I have never been so happy to get home. We had a lot of fun and I needed this time away.
I hope your sale is killer!!! I am going to go to yard sales with my daughter in the morning I know they will pale in comparison to your sale (cause you have the good goods)but we shall have fun.
hugs to you...

I hope the sale was a huge success! The picture is lovely. Things are still blooming like crazy here...odd year.

That's a lot of posting and quite the accomplishment I think. I especially like your soapbox posts, the ones where I imagine you standing on a soapbox and speaking your mind. I ponder things as you do, and people often remark in a bemused sort of way that they had never thought of (it) quite like that. Makes me wonder sometimes what they do with their own heads but I try to be polite and not ask it out loud. Hope the Sale was great!
