the last day of summer...

it was the last day of summer here at the noodle and lou house. school starts bright and early wednesday morning. school...we are not quite ready for you. we have the new school outfits and new shoes and backpacks all ready to go, we have our thinking caps on (we had a hard time finding those;)) and alarm clocks set.....we are just not quite ready to give up our summer! yes. it's always hard to say goodbye. so, in between our last minute errands and such...we lounged around and enjoyed the sunshine on our patio....







then we hit the downtown area for some ice cream and more sunshine...



and i squeezed in a super quick thrifting stop...yahooo!!

i'm thinking of opening a 2nd etsy shop for my vintage treats that i seem to hoard. really. it's bad folks. but i can't help myself. i love the hunt...love when i find something perfectly aged and wonderful that used to have a spectacular life with folks from long ago. bet those folks, at one time or another, were sorry to see summer go too...

happy wednesday to you! xoxox...jenn

sounds like a fun day on the hunt and any day with ice cream is good :)! I am with you on the vintage treasures....they are the best! I'm all for the 2nd etsy shop...would be awesome!
I am soooooo not ready to say goodbye to summer!!!! It can't possible be ending! My husband is a prof at UK and the students are piling in and start classes next week.
Hugs,

what a fun way to spend the last day of summer....your patio looks SO inviting, and who can resist a little retail therapy (especially when there are so many vintage goodies waiting for you to come and take them home)?!! :)

happy first day of school....

I hope your first school day went well. Today is OUR last day of summer vacation. Boo Hoo-It's sad to look out the window and already see some leaves falling into the pool.

Bonjour mon amie Jenn! School is starting again so soon? Here, we still have until the 31st, then it's back to booooooring, like my son would say! Well, aren't we lucky, we stay-at-home artists who can enjoy all the free time we want with our kids? That is what I did all summer, now it's time to get back to work! Your mermaid lulettes are absolutely ADORABBLE, Jenn, I think you really found your niche with these little 3D creations! Bye! LuLu xxx

I feel the same way about school starting a summer being over. We'll just have to jump in feet first, even if the water is chilly!

Can we just freeze time so the flowers are always in bloom and our kids stay young?! My little one starts Prek next week..gulp.
Your boys are so cute and it's fun to see how big they're getting.

Congrats on being in Sommerset! I'll keep an eye out for it:)

My boys went back to school on Thursday. I just get a little sad when they go back but I snap out of it pretty fast:) It looks like you knew how to spend the last bit of free time well! Love all your pretty flower pictures!
