****Our Sunday post got sent out very late Sunday so we have extended the melamine sale until Monday 6pm EST.***** Hello and happy Sunday to you all. Hope you are enjoying a wonderful weekend. With luck I will be visiting my parents and taking a very quick trip with my sister. Summer is flying by and I cannot believe its already mid July…about time to start seeing the back to school supplies:) Onward we go to this Sunday’s post- ______________________________________________ 1 SANGRIA IS FOR SUMMER I have enjoyed trying and testing some new cocktail recipes this summer. Some have been home runs and others were a one shot deal.I loved this comprehensive articles from Stylecaster, featuring the best sangria recipes. I have tried two so far and am not done yet! For anyone who equates summer with sangria, this ones for you! Like summer in a glass, click here to read all about it. 2 GARDEN PARTY Love France Schultz’s carefree elegant style. This garden party is a stunner yet manages to feel casual and inviting. Love the colors against the California sky.

Definitely flower heavy this weekend, works for me! 4 A TRANQUIL LAKE HOUSE This beautiful lakeside abode is so well done. Reflects today’s classic modern ascetic yet manages to e so convincing an calming, i can imagine arriving for the weekend and leaving all my cares behind me. Beautiful executed, probably wouldn’t budge from that waterfront view porch with the rocking chairs!

Call me lazy, I call it pragmatic:) Making a cheese boards is always the first thin I do, everyone can nibble on a cheeseboard, I always add some fruit, olives, nuts, etc…so there really is something for everyone. I also love my little individual crudites. I fill half the cup with hummus, then add asparagus and carrot sticks, with a few pieces of seeded flatbread. Tasty, delicious, pandemic proof and pretty! And then brushetta is a no brainer, it is sooo good. I always hope I will have a little left for the next day! It is a perfect appetizer that is always a huge hit whenever it is served! 6 A GREAT NEW PRODUCT I kept reading about/seeing so decided to try it. I am happy I did. Love it, its a sunscreen with a subtle shimmer which makes everyone skin look prettier. Great new product, adding to my arsenal!

I feel like we are getting there, but not totally. We have not taken a summer trip yet which is something that was on my bucket list. I think if we are lucky we may get to plan something for Sept. Wondering how many of you are staying on track with your normal summer plans, traveling, etc…..its encouraging for me to hear so many are back in the saddle again!
