I have been busy this week watching my grandbaby , his daycare takes the whole month of July off .
So I haven’t been able to work on many projects.
But I have been enjoying the summer weather , even though it is hot . I mean , that is what summer is about isn’t it ?
I started looking around for things that reminded me of summer fun , I found this old pop case in the garage , we bought it years ago at a flea market to use for displays at craft shows .
It makes me think of boating and stopping for a refreshing drink.
Did you ever hear of 3V Cola ?
Then I pulled out this vintage look sand pail and shovel , it’s a reproduction but it reminds me so much of my childhood and playing in the sand around Lake Michigan , Ahhh , those were great summers.
Then I picked some wild flowers and a few flowers from the yard and added them to a covered jar. and then added a few things that made me think of picnics.
Now I have a summer vignette centerpiece .
I’m heading up to Indiana in a couple of weeks , going to a high school reunion , getting together with a lot of old friends.
I hope to get a chance to go out to the lake and put my toes in the sand again . I spent so many summer days there as a kid .
I hope you all are having a great summer !
I think I’ll link this up with Debra’s Vintage Inspiration Friday .
Head over there for the party !
