Oh where, oh where has Summer gone?

Thursday, August 21














The new school year is in full view as the last lazy summer days float by. This has been a good summer all and all. Great weather, sleeping in, not packing any lunches for three whole months and eating my share of homegrown tomatoes!
Ann is off getting her firstborn settled into her first apartment as a college sophomore. My firstborn will be leaving for his senior year and has the moving-in process down so well, he doesn't need us to follow him there on Sunday. Long sigh.....

Whether you vacationed, stay-cationed or just got lost in a good book, I hope your summer was a good one.

We are slowly creeping into the changing seasons here at the cottage. We've started bringing in richer fabrics, warmer wood tones and anticipating ordering in our favorite potato-leek soup on that first brisk day. Ann and I have some wonderful buying trips planned in the next few weeks. We will certainly continue to share our great finds!

Take care,
the cottage gals

I know what you mean about summer...but it looks like you're transitioning the shop into Fall beautifully! Enjoy the rest of August! We're praying for rain here in Tennessee!
Blessings,

I am anticipating the coming change of seasons, your winking pumpkin does the trick and gets me in the mods for the coming seasons treats!

I happened on your blog and as I was scrolling through all of your post I suddenly realized that I had been to your shop. While visiting from Tampa a friend in Fredricksburg I asked her if we could go see this shop I had seen advertised in Romantic Homes. She being the dear she is actually brought me there. I think you are about 2 hours away. Good friend don't you think? I loved it and
I enjoyed it then and I enjoyed it today. Now I am going to have to go back for a visit!
