Labor Day Weekend



 So soon?

Any plans?

One last trip to the beach?





I thought I'd leave you with these images as we bid farewell to the lazy days of Summer...


 













































If you're not going to be hitting the road this Labor Day Weekend you might want to check out some amazing end of Summer sales going on right now. 



















All these coastal inspired accessories are now on sale at Pottery Barn.  I just ordered the ship in a bottle place card holders!

What lovely photos Terri - made me want to go to the beach immediately! Preferably with a barboy eager to bring me long, iced drinks on a little tray while I lounged beneath my umbrella...

That kitchen with the two industrial pendant shades is a favourite of mine, which is surprising given it's so white! Thanks for a last slice of summer inspiration, Terri! xo

Another holiday weekend!! You guys make me green with envy. I suppose the only consolation is that spring is almost here on my side of the world. Have a lovely break Terri :)

Hi Terri
Just beautiful.... and yes.. what's with all your holiday weekends? haha.. no only kidding!!!

Well these images are so gorgeous and have me excited about spring coming here very soon... It's hard to let go of summer isn't it? I know I struggled earlier in the year with summer slipping away... but each season brings it's gifts..

Have a great weekend.. xxx Julie

Hi Terri,

All the pictures you have shared are lovely.
The nautical look is always so fabulous.
I especially love the all white bedroom and the bathroom with the two round mirrors.

Have a very happy long weekend

Well....after such a fun filled summer, I think I'll be getting organized for school to begin the following day. Reality is starting to sink in. I love every image you shared today. Just put a big smile on my face!

I know we are in different parts of the state but in southern California we have had an exceptionally cool summer. I'm thankful we have been cool but I'm really not ready to think about summer ending and fall beginning. I wonder if this means we will have a warm fall!?! All the images are so beautiful. I especially love the baskets and white hydrangeas. I also love the little pails. Thanks. Have a great weekend.

PS. Call me crazy but I have been having a feeling that you are going to be telling me that you have that mermaid! Maybe you should go visit it and see what's happening. I have a good feeling about that.

I love all these pics! I'm such a seaside girl - why don't I live near one?? Have a great weekend - our Labour Day weekend is next weekend so I guess I still have one more week of summer to savour!! xo

Is Labor Day weekend a week early on the left coast? I know you folks out there are forward thinkers but, officially, Labor Day is Sept. 6th.
If you've figured out a way to celebrate both weekends, more power to you.
Loved the summer photos. Do you know where the seafan pillows are from?

Thanks for straightening me out... I haven't been keeping accurate count of time lately as I guess I'm getting nervous about taking my one and only to college in a few weeks. I think it's some sort of denial. Anyway, Happy Early Labor Day to you :)

La Dolfina said...

Oh... I forget to mention the the pillows are from Pottery Barn!

Aren't these all
gorgeous images????
I was particularly
smitten with the
dining table wet
with roses and a
view of the ocean.
Nirvana!!!
My kiddos headed
back to school, today...
90 and sunny is
the forecast. Doesn't
seem fair, somehow!
