Although the official first day of Summer isn’t until the 21st, once June has arrived and the temps are reaching close to 90 my thoughts turn to Summer.
Usually I decorate my front porch in an Americana theme. This year I decided to give it a twist.
Using some of my vintage collections I’m hi-lighting the fun activities that we associate with Summer. . .
Summer time is so much fun!
It’s a time for hitting balls and hearing the fans yell,
For some, (like my hubby) they have only one wish. . .
that would be to catch a ‘big’ fish!
Others just want to hang out at the beach.
Dreams of that ‘perfect tan’ are within reach!
(little nautical banner was made from paint chip samples)
The little tykes find joy in the simple things like riding
or strapping on a backpack and taking a hike.
(did you ever decorate your bike and ride it in a children’s parade?)
Some like to camp out and sleep under the stars,
You might try packing a picnic and head to the park. . .
Soon you’ll be as happy as a Meadow Lark!
(thinking I need some flags coming out of the drink holder)
Nothing says Summer like homemade ice cream. . .
We certainly know that it makes us all scream!
(I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!)
As the summer time temps begin to rise. . .
Don’t forget to get out and enjoy the skies!
Every now and then the kid in my can’t help but write a silly little poem. Been doing it since I was young. . .why stop now? lol!
hugs and happy summer!
