inspiration/goodies : shades of summer s11:f1

Hi Ya'll! I feel like time is just absolutley flying! It feels like just last week that I was posting about my spring color crushes, and now, I feel like it's summer time already. This week is LB's last week of school (LG ended school last week), we're leaving this weekend for vacation and we have 3 weddings next month... all of this means that spring is over and summer is upon us.

A couple of weeks ago, my friend Dionne posted about her summer colors and challenged us, her readers, with the question of what our summer colors are. I went blank. I didn't have any summer colors picked out. And then, even worse, I was bombarded by just about every color. haha. About the same time, the most gorgeous treasury made the front page of Etsy and one photograph in particular has been stuck in my mind ever since. Everything about the photograph just screamed summer and I fell in love with the colors instantly. I was thinking that those colors would be my summer colors, BUT I can't turn my back on the other colors/color combinations that are all things summery. Sooo... I'm introducing a new weekly feature: shades of summer. Each feature will be full of pictures and words meant to delight and inspire your soul and a collection of goodies to delight your senses. I hope you enjoy these features as much as I'm enjoying making them. And here's the first feature:
