Summertime is not over….

image

Since the last several weeks in August being straight 70s with nights in the 50s…I was pretty sure we we on our way to an early fall here in Milwaukee. However to my pleasant surprise, the forecast, starting with the weekend, calls for 80s and I can’t be happier. We only had one week in the upper 90s this summer. It’s been very mild and me no likey. But have no fear, more summer days are near! (Corny rhyming….I know).

More days left for outdoor shindigs…

image

More days left for lazy pool days, cold cocktail drinks, fresh fruit at farmer markets…

image

More time for carnivals, fair foods, cotton candy and funnel cakes…

image

More warm nights for outdoor movies and dining…

image

More time for flower market stands and to stop and smell the summer roses. How are the rest of your summer days shaping up?

Color Connection: Summery White Hues…

{I’d Rather be Shopping}

The nerve of mother nature giving us some snow after we had 85 degree weather a week ago. Well, it hasn’t fallen yet but up to 3″ is in the forecast. If you could see my face right now. So I figured I’ll post some summery white hues….not winter white….summer white. Maybe if I speak Spring & Summer into existence our weather will change for the better…

Restaurant Indulgences: Park Ave NYC…

Ever see a restaurant that changes it’s interior based on the season? Well, welcome to Park Avenue NY. Captain James Cook’s travels are used as a loose design reference. They looked at the regions he had visited as a way of framing each season. For example, winter as seen above, pays homage to Cook’s adventures in the Antartic Circle. I remember as a kid I used to want to go to Antartica just to say I went. But living in Milwaukee where our winters are artic enough, I decided I’m good. LOL.

The floral blooms and grass in the plants screams SPRING which happens to be my favorite season.

Warm yellow hues brighten up the space like the sunny days of summer…

The bronze hue is picking up on the rustic woods of autumn with fallen dead leaves and bare branches…This is my favorite of the looks.
