Wait…How can it be the middle of Summer already? Didn’t school just finish for the year? Remember when Summer felt endless…or at least long enough to feel really really bored of unscheduled routines and wide open days? Simpler times I guess. Ice cream trucks, fireflies, community swimming pool, all day bike rides and balmy nights playing tag…these memories are treasured…perhaps a bit rosier than the reality, but treasured just the same.
Summer does allow for more free time. And more free time, at least for me, means more time to track down those antique treasures just waiting to be discovered. Treasures that bring to mind simpler times…just like my remembered Summers of a past time.
A Jadeite seltzer bottle..Summer ice cream sodas.
A vintage cracker box and antique plaid cake holder…Summer picnic lunches.
A beautiful vintage cross-stitch sampler…keeping busy on the porch on a warm afternoon.
Or perhaps preparing for the upcoming school year.
Maybe the magic of summer truly is a state of mind. Even a modern entertainment device is best enjoyed in an old fashioned rocker with a refreshing drink.
