treasuring summer



My summer crush on aqua continues ...



Just added a few new items to my Etsy shop, Tinkered Treasures. Also trying to pack-in as much summer fun as possible before school starts at the end of the month.



So it's off to the beach with my boys.

I hope to find some blogging time soon. I am feeling very behind on visiting and reading posts!

Oh, super cute!
I especially love those jars. I'm still waiting for a good moment to tell everybody we will be without electricity for a a few days because I *need* a jar with an aqua lid. ;) I'm a poor stay at home mom; what can I tell you?

Glad to see you have joined me in aqua-land! Have fun with the boys at the beach. I could use a little dip i the water myself - is it as humid there as it is here?

Love that aqua color. Your jars are fabulous.

Our summer is winding down. 5 more days and we head back to Kuwait.

Will miss the weather here. Ironically, everyone in Michigan thinks it is hot. Ha!

Best wishes, Tammy

Thanks so much for stopping by and saying hello. I am such a stranger these days. I too am trying to get in as much "little boy" time as I can. However, we don't have beautiful R.I. beaches to explore. LOL... Soak up some sun for us my sweet friend...

Blessedmom's Simple Home said...

It is such a summer color, and because I have aqua blue couches, it's seen alot around here. I need to have my kids make one of those boxes. I think they'd enjoy it. Yours looks so pretty!
Blessings,
Marcia

I bought some close pins on ebay once that had your look and feel to the art work, I guess this is why I am so taken with yours!

Elyse,
I love your aqua jars! I waited to long for the first one.I had it in my cart and forgot...darn! I am sure you will have more but I loved the jar, too.

I hope you get your package today. I am out of town (in South Dakota visiting my in-laws) but am still on the internet...always!

I loved the popsicle stick box. Like camp but with some taste!!!

Hugs,
Suz
