Holding On To Summer.

I'm clinging to the last days of summer. Enjoying my favorite bird feeder(s). Pink paper lanterns (they light up at night!) A cute flower pot even though it's empty! Sweet succulents (who knew I'd find PINK ones?) The curly details of my pink metal lanterns. Birds. . . fake, yet so cute!) Our sweet porch cat, Rex. He's my faithful morning friend.He loves sitting under the shade or our PINK umbrella. Uh oh, Rex sees something. . . .A yellow finch. . .real, and so cute! The same cute finch! Hard to believe he let me continue taking photos! I took at least a dozen! Sipping coffee (lots of cream and sugar, please!) in a pretty cup and saucer I purchased at a tag sale in Montana. When my coffee is coupled with a set of sticky page markers that can mean only one thing. My Cath Kidston Catalog just arrived in the mail! Look at all the pages I marked! Here's a preview of all the cute things inside! Oooooo...... Ahhhhhh...... So cute...... Dreamy. . . . . Back to school! Sew adorable. . . . I'd do more ironing if. . . . . Pink florals and more! I'd cook more if. . . . . I'd enjoy washing dishes if. . . . Okay, time to stop dreaming. My son is awake and wants to play Legos!

Ah I don't want summer to end either! Your photos are beautiful, and I took tons of pics of a mourning dove once, and it didn't move either. Your son would love where I live CIndy, 5 minutes from Legoland!
Take care,

I can't believe its just about over, phooey. I am trying to squeeze a little more out of summer before the calendar takes it away. Just came home from Palm Springs, it was fabulous!

Diane said...

Yes it will be hard to leave the warm sunshine, and bring in all our outdoor decorations, but this heat wave I can live without!
Hugs, Diane

I agree with everyone else...I think your porch will be crowded once we all get there. LOL! I love those pink lanterns. I have a box of old lantern in my bedroom closet. Don't know why i've never taken them out or hung them up. I have been swooning over the CK catalog as well. Love it and your pretty blog.
