O My Back-to- what????

SCHOOL?? or shall we still PLAY? 
Little of both maybe?
Hand painted and
 Vintage post card inspired....
 Maybe a more formal approach
to work and play?? 
Why not.

I have the right desk for you
either way you go.

Both finished in Annie Sloan's chalk paint...
Country Grey and Old White
with clear wax.

Back-to-school seems too soon
 but maybe these will ease the pain?

Maine Market Monday....

So I am in my favorite spot with my favorite people so will say only a few words...

Coffee on my porch overlooking the marsh

All the cousins lined up by age...
Dex is the oldest
Susie is next
Emma is forth from the right

Our children nestled in...PRICELESS!
 Each year we can't wait for our time here, in our Maine. Full of lovely beach fun, family laughter and breezy evenings on the screened porch.Cousins become one, nestled in their beds, hanging out, creating moments to remember forever.  They did not have to share this room, they WANTED to be together.

Tell me what is "your Maine"?   On a lake, in the mountains, sipping tea on your own porch?  So...

MARKET Monday...
go visit someone new, say hello, leave me a little note about what makes your summer, really summer.
