What Did You Do On Your Summer Vacation?

Did you visit your local farmer's market?

Did you fill your planters full of your favorite flowers?

Did you sit out on the porch?

Did you bring home treasures from yard sales?

Did you run barefoot through a fountain?

And remember to celebrate the 4th in style?

Did you drink tea in your garden?

And visit your local garden center ... more than once?

I hung out my laundry on the line did you?

And I made a little garden for the fairies ...

and a camp site for them too.   And ...

One for Bentley and me too.  We had a fun summer doing some of
our favorite things.

As we all say goodbye to the last official weekend of summer,
Bentley and I hope that yours was filled with fun!  We are looking
forward to fall with it's crisp cool days, apple picking and nature hikes.
We will be taking the weekend off to have some fun and do some re-decorating.
See you in September!

Please join me in visiting

Bentley ~ Momma is home with you for 4 days!  Whoopee!!

  1. Yes, I visited our local farmer's market and they have some thrift shop items there too. I did plant some flowers and bought some inside to enjoy too. My sister and I went to the Endless Yard Sale. I spend the 4th of July with my grandkids and I'm spending this holiday weekend with my hubby celebrating our 33rd anniversary.
    Have a great weekend.

  2. Such wonderful photos, Susan! I did some of the things you mentioned this summer....I wish I had a porch to sit on but my UK home doesn't have one! I had lots of flowers around me this year, such a joy. Your farmer's market flowers are just gorgeous!
    Wishing you a happy weekend.

  3. I did many of those things, but the best thing I did was meet my newest granddaughter. Hugging all my grandchildren was the best summer treat of all. See you in September:

  4. What wonderful pictures and memories. I did some of those things...Can't believe the summer has flown. Seems to go faster every year I get older. Love your fairy garden. I have one too. Very special place you made for your garden fairies. If that is your front porch, you are a very, very lucky woman!

  11. What a great summer you and Bentley had! I did some of these things and would love to have a garden fairy. I'll have to think about doing one after it cools down here. Any suggestions on where to start? HPS and a safe and happy Labor Day.
