Fancy Schmancy

Spent our last weekend at the beach for the summer. Everyone goes back to school next week.

This wasn't just plain terrible, this was fancy terrible. This was terrible with raisins in it.  ~Dorothy Parker
Back to routines. And bag lunches. And early nights.

Goodbye to lazy, sleepy mornings and tuna noodle salad for lunch and staying up late watching old movies.

So we enjoyed the weekend and the sun and the waves. We walked around an old fishing town, and went out to breakfast, and shopped a bit.

I love the column on the left in the first blog board above. It's very fancy.

Why don't we make fancy things like that anymore?

We need more fancy in the world. 
Melting ice cream?


Not fancy.


Hat on her head?


Very fancy.
Pretty golden highlights in K's hair?

Fancy.
Saying goodbye to summer.


She looks footloose and fancy-free, skipping along, gathering up flowers.

Many thanks to Miz Booshay for the inspiration to find some Queen Anne's lace. She took such a pretty photo of her Katie, it made me find this flower.

  1. That last shot of K holding the flowers is absolutely stunning! And the ice cream shot is PERFECT!
