Summer summer summer

This weekend Mr. Bromeliad threw a surprise party for me, my mom and dad sent me a computerized Janome sewing machine, and I got to spend a day at my favorite place in the world - the beach.

Not a bad way to go out.

How was your summer?

  1. My summer was surprise partyless; thank you for asking. How kind of them all. I'm intrigued by the sewing machine and looking forrwad to your creations.

    Sounds like a perfect Labor Day weekend! Glad you had fun. I was at the beach myself :) xoxo

  3. I spent my weekend on the beach too!
    And I'm sooo loving it! Love the collection of photos you've got there. Congratulation for the new computerized sewing machine!

    Awesome! Sounds perfect. I was at the pool. Not too bad ;-)

    Wonderful images, especially your last one!
    Personally, I'm counting on a few more weeks of summer... I'm not quite finished having fun yet :)

  6. Sounds like a wonderful end to the season! What's the first project you're going to use the sewing machine on?

  7. Don't know. I haven't even opened the box yet. So I guess the first project will be figuring the thing out.

    And I'm with Pauline. Summer isn't really over until it's too cold to skip stockings.

  8. You are a perfect candidate for a sewing machine because we all know you are going to make some fabulous things and then share it with us..pretty please.

    We too were at the beach but on the other side of the country. Glad you got to spend some time at your favorite place .

  9. Those sea shells are so lovely. I haven't been to the shore in such a long time.

  10. So I was just throwing up my last handful of tootsie rolls until I scrolled to the end and realized that the bikini pic was not your fab body....although kudos to you that I immediately thought it was!
