Ahhh...Summer!


Toes in the sand,
and waves lapping the shore,


Sipping ice cold, refreshing, pretty drinks...


Sweet plump, juicy berries...summer's bounty...
to be enjoyed so many different ways



A simple and charming idea
for a tote I want to embellish...

Life is good, isn't it?

You know, I try each day to take snippets of time
to appreciate some of life's
little inspirations, and thank my God
for each one!

It truly can make all the difference
in how a day goes!


I am off to the grocery store,
and then back to my studio to
CREATE!!
Yes!!

We need to always
Live Inspired!

It is so much more fun!!!

Sunny Florida Hugs to You!!

Oooh, I'd love to be sitting on that chair at the beach right now, Becky! What a great chair and matching tote, too. Love the look of that dessert - poundcake with whipped cream and berries? Simple but delicious looking. I'll have to see if I can get a gluten free pound cake recipe. I'd like to try that one. Have fun creating!

Congratulations on your baby grand-daughter!
I would love to take a break on that sandy beach with my feet in the water...it was 103 degrees here yesterday.

Love your summery pictures! And wish I could look over your shoulder as you create your lovelies!!;)

How are you doing fellow Gramma? Are we blessed or what!?:) Sweet little girls to warm our grammy hearts- love it! I've got a couple of pictures of our little Hazel on my blog. She is so sweet. We Skyped with them and got to see her "live" on Sunday. :)))

At first I thought you were on vacation, but you live in Florida! Enjoy your sun! I look forward to seeing your new creations. I have been in the creative mode too.
We are still having cloudy, rainy days, but I'm using it to work in the flower gardens. I've been transplanting like crazy. So the weather is perfect for getting my perennials in order.
Thank you for the positive inspiration to start my day!
Enjoy your weekend!

Hey!

I've been leaving some messages and am not sure if you're getting them, Becky.

I lost your address and need it again. K?

Love you...

XO,

Debbie said...

You just reinforced something that I had been thinking this morning. My problem recently is that I'm too often looking in for inspiration when I should be looking out.

The Primitive Home said...

Hi Honey! OOOhhh...I LOVE those sweet Summer pics!! I think we had our Summer...and now it's gone. :(
It was close to 100* all last week...now this week it's in the 50's. Yup...Summer is over. I have a sweater and 2 pairs of footies on. No laughing...it's taking every once NOT to turn on the heat!!

Glad someone is enjoying Summer....put your toes in the sand for me will ya?? LOL

Love ya!! Take care my dear friend. :)
Big hug,
Paula

Hi Becky,
Just stopping by to say Hi...
Have a sweet day and hugs, Elizabeth

Ms. Bake-it said...

Hello Becky,

You are so sweet! I do try to live an inspired life and am lucky to live in a place filled with inspiration. I just had a conversation on Wednesday with a co-worked about this subject and she feels the same way.

How is that darling Hannah Elizabeth?

As you know, I live in and love Florida and, as tacky as it may sound, I want that chair and tote! How cute! Great inspiration images! I now want to run out to the beach and put my feet in the sand and surf! Maybe I will take Little Darling tomorrow morning and do that!

Have a fabulous weekend!

Hugs,
Tracy

Such pretty pictures!! It hasn't been summery here at all - mostly rainy (not that I mind since I'm snuggling a sweet baby!! :0)!!) but your pictures do make me excited for when summer really does arrive - sometime after July 4th around here in the Washington State!! Even with the rainy weather there is PLENTY to thank God for every day!!

Blessings to you dear friend!!
Christine

Rebecca said...

Many Blessings
