The last week of June....

Summer is definitely here!  There are a few things that have helped me navigate this summer heat.

For skin care....

....and for favorite beauty consultant provided these!

The first pedicure in MANY years has given pretty toes for summer's sandals!

A road trip is a good way to celebrate the beginning of summer, and here are some scenes from a visit to Asheville, NC....

Do you like shopping for antiques?

What about lunch?

Christmas in June?

This did give a cool hint on a warm June day.

The perfect spot for outside eating.
Still working through the week-end, we enjoyed some time with our Sunday School class....

Isn't this just the cutest garden shed?

Such a lovely garden!

The bottle tree!

A train layout....reminder of times past.
While visiting with friends during the week, we were greeted by Miss Princess....

....and on our walk, discovered that there will be another hatching in the bluebird's nest!

If this seems like it describes your day perfectly....

.....perhaps this is good advice for you to follow....

I wish you a happy week-end!


  1. How adorable are those places you visited! Lunch is always good, and I'm up for Christmas any time of year! Your little tootsies are lovely, but if your toenails grow as quickly as your hair, you'll need a new pedi very soon! I hope Miss Princess won't get any ideas about those baby birds when they hatch. That could be very sad indeed. Have a lovely afternoon, Sister! Love you!

  2. I've never been to Asheville, but I've heard before that it's a great place. I love your pink tootsies.


  3. Such pretty polish, Nellie! I love Asheville--and I'd be perfectly happy to enjoy all the places you visited. Your bluebird box is promising much happiness ahead. Have a happy weekend. ♥

  4. Looks like you had a good trip. My son now lives in Asheville.

  5. So many fun pictures Nellie. I loved seeing the birds. Your pedi looks perfect. Blessings to all your way, for a wonderful weekend. xoxo, Susie

  6. Great shots. Love those pink tootsies. Glad you had a fun time. hugs, LJ

  7. Love those pink toenails! Fun post and beautiful Asheville! Happy 4th!

  8. Thanks for sharing your summer days. I got my toes redone for BlogHer and of course, every day begins with coffee for me. Have a wonderful weekend!

  9. How lovely to treat yourself to a pedicure! I should do the same! I honestly can't remember the last time I had one done. Road trips are my favorite! Looks like you had a wonderful time. Happy Summer, Nellie!

  10. I've never been to Asheville, but I've heard before that it's a great place. I love your pink tootsies.
