And suddenly, it is August. Busy days, lazy days. 

Glads

Gladiolas! Paints and threads. Pattern and color.

Our dear friend Lynne moved away so we had a farewell craft night and decoupaged a keepsake trunk.

Trunk

Trunk

Found an old, old, old book in my stash and discovered that there were state maps inside. We used all the states she lived in and then added copies of my vintage NY postcards. I printed the backs too and added messages to Lynne over the faint handwritings from the original senders. Really pleased with the finished trunk, but I'm so sad to see her go!

Finally finished this and reloaded the Etsy shop.

And then - and then! - Meleen and I went up to Vermont to begin prepping for the Fall Getaway. Oh, how I love it there!

We prettied up the rooms.

Stitching up curtains, digging through treasures, hanging pictures (and vintage pillowcases).

We took time off and wandered around the scenic country roads.

After all, it was village tag sale weekend. Every corner was dotted with signs, every road led to a sale.

Barn

This photo is all I took away from this barn sale, but I'm so glad we went. Seriously spectacular.

I came home so excited and inspired by our plans for the weekend. It sold out very quickly and we still have lots of inquiries about openings. Thinking we'll do it again at another time of year, possibly late spring or summer 2014, so if you might like to join us, email us at fallvermontgetaway{at}gmail.com. 

Hoping your summer is creative, busy .... and a little bit lazy too. 

I'll be back here Sunday night with a give-away for you. See you then!
