Welcome, July! Welcome, Summer!
And just like that - summer has arrived! Finally! And with it comes all the splendid summer pastimes, like parades and fireworks, fairs and festivals. I don’t go to them myself – festivals, that is. Well, except for my hometown’s festival, Sweet Applewood Days, held in the park across the street from the home I grew up in. No, I prefer quiet and solitude over all the hubbub attendant at large celebrations. Oddly enough, I do take real pleasure in thinking of all the fine folks enjoying the music, food and drink. But give me a rocking chair on my porch, a glass of lemonade and fireflies bobbing about the garden at dusk. That’s my favorite way to celebrate this delicious season!
"That beautiful season the Summer! Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood."
~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow ~
Early Work Mercantile Offerings
Visit my Early Work Mercantile page where I’m offering some wonderful items with a nod to red, white, and blue - including two antique samplers and the old children’s chairs you see here.
I’m working on a new design for August! Until then, wave your parade flags, enjoy a glass of lemonade, and relish these blessed days of summer...
