I just realized that it has been nearly a month since my last post....What have I been up to?
We'll not a lot really. We've had family visiting and work has been gearing up for our annual fall craziness, but other than that, not really much of anything.
The weather has been phenomenal! Low 80s and high 70s. But alas, all good things must come to an end. It is predicted to be in the upper 90s and may even hit 100 this week. Ugh. Our air-conditioner is out of commission until we can get an electrician to fix the plug, so that sucks even worse. I've got a pretty ingenious system of fans going, but it is hard to combat the heat when it gets this hot. Luckily we'll be at the coast this weekend.
Anyway, here are some of the things that are making me happy this summer! I can't get enough of them. I must be spending $40/week on berries alone this summer. I think all that wet weather we had made them sweeter or something. They are out of this world.
I hope to have some more crafty things soon. I have been doing little projects here and there, but really want to concentrate on doing some new things soon.
Here's a little something I found a couple of weeks ago at a vintage shop.
They are iron-ons for decorating your bell-bottoms!
They are really interesting. They are like big sheets of iron-on patch material--you know, the kind your mom used to use to patch your jeans or the elbows of jackets. They are totally flourescent in color and most totally groovy in design. My favorite detail is the bunny-rabbit sitting under the tree. Check out my Flickr account for pictures of the full pages.
