backyard summer

I have so many things to tell you.
And questions I still must answer!
But the days are just whipping by as we get ready for school to end, and I finish the book tour for the summer, and I am having trouble finding time (and energy) to share all the things I want to share.
But our break is just a few days away..
Then it is just one more promotion trip and then SUMMER is ON!
Here is a little glimpse at what awaits me...

Enjoying my new laundry pole

Lovely summer blooms

Endless Hydrangeas

Time with my fellas

Pool lounging.
Even if it is just in a blow-up pool.
My raft fits and that is what counts!

Napping and reading on my swing.

Don't you love this set up?  I used the left over tablecloth from the garden bunting to add this little faux awning look over the swing.
I really want to paint the swing itself a fun color eventually, but for now, this jazzes it up a bit.

And this quilt.
It is my new old favorite.
I found it on our trip to Mountain View during our Folkcation.
I am thinking of turning it into pillows, or maybe just using it as a throw, since it is really not big enough for our beds.

Okay that is all for now.
I promise to have more words soon.



  1. Summer is so close! Isn't the backyard the BEST place in the world to spend it? I really want a swing just like yours - or maybe a hammock. I am on the lookout while garage sale-ing this summer! Just ordered your book. It should be here and ready for consumption this weekend! Hurray!

    1. Oh how fun! I hope you enjoy the book and have an absolutely lovely summer!


ok, really. tell me the truth... do these comments make me look fat?
