~Currently I'm super excited and happy to announce that I won first place in Hypeed fashion magazines Theme "Farniente: Luncheon on the Grass"!!! (Click here, here, and here to see the pages I'm featured in the online magazine!) I'm sure y'all recall these pictures from a couple months ago...
~Yesterday my lovely prize, all the way from France, arrived! (I'm almost more excited about the packaging than the lovely jewelry!) Care to take a look?
~Many thanks to Sandra, the creator of Les Dissonances, who participated with Hypeed to award such a wonderful prize. I hope to have pictures up of me wearing it soon - I love how delicate it is!

~For the random part of this post I'm sure you've all noticed several things were lacking from this weeks schedule, ahem, Monday and Tuesdays scheduled posts.... Things have been rather busy around here, and my computer was having problems (all fixed now! thanks Dad), so I never got around to posting! Hopefully I can rectify that next week...
~Have a lovely rest of the week!

~A game of croquet anyone? Its a longstanding tradition to play croquet when we visit my grandparents house!
~Batter up, the competition will be somethin' fierce!
~One of these cute little girls beat me - and I'm still gettin' over it!
~Starting the game...
~Hope your summer is as lovely as mine, and may your games of croquet be luckier! We're leaving to go home tomorrow - expect more pictures soon!

~I haven't had a chance to get many pictures of my vacation spot yet - but I assure you, there will be more to come! Above is my "vintage" luggage case, vintage because it was my mothers and before her it was my grandmothers. When I pulled it out of the shed it still had the little red white and blue traveling tag with my mothers maiden name and address written in! Little details that really make me smile - and I added a blue and white scarf of my own to keep it company.
~Front door entry...
~The front of the "cottage", don't you love gingerbread trim?
~White picket fence out front with beautiful red roses. My Grandmother is an avid gardener, she has zillions of flowers all over the place!
~Rose against the sky.
~The corner of the original molding on the porch, still sturdy after 112 years!
~That's all for now! I'll try to find time to get more of the house when I get a chance!

~I thought I'd call this post "boating summer" because this is definitely an outfit I'd wear boating... As it is I have been doing a lot of swimming! Globbing on the sunscreen too - I discovered years ago that I simply don't tan...
~Hope everyone is having a beautiful summer!
