Summer Dreaming - Creative Tuesdays Part 2

Summer afternoon, summer afternoon
the two most beautiful words in the English language.
Henry James

The summer is in full swing and I am loving it!
Go ahead -
gather sea glass,
wish on a starfish,
surround yourself with fresh flowers,
 and let the warm summer breeze blow in..
.listen to the cicadas, collect fireflies...dream...and fall in love....
Summer is really my favorite season....
I am enjoying my summer break so far...how about you?


 and this illustration
 from here,
enjoy your Summer break.

Heather, do you ever have a down day, or a frown on your face....
I think not!!! Because everything that comes from you mind, heart and paint brush says happy, hopeful, full of joy.

You are one special gal.

BTW ~ Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my Summer Break.

Your drawings are so much fun. How great is it to spend a summer night roasting marshmallows? Reminds me of going to camp as a kid. It was the best part of my summer. Nice work!

Quite adorable, Heather. Looks like me sitting at my little desk in front of the window, dreaming, wishing and being creative in my art sketchbooks. Say...is that a SB mug there?!? :D

Hugs and love.
