summer activities...

With Memorial Day weekend the unofficial kick off to summer, I thought I'd take some inspiration from my sons kindergarten homework. Write three (or more) sentences about your favorite summer activities. I'd love to hear yours!!

Is cuddling with big bird on your list (that's what he was in the middle of writing)?

Documenting summer....

I'm big on keeping seasonal scrapbooks. This is last years summer book that I began at the very beginnging of the season (in Rachel Denbow's class) stating my intentions for what I wanted my summer to be.

What do you want your summer of 2010 to involve?

I'd love to hear about how you plan to keep your summer memories alive long after the lazy days of summer are gone.

Summer bunting from hungryhippie...

Nothing says summer like popsicles. Vintage style buntings are all the rage, so super-creative Natalie at Hungryhippie combined the two into this adorable retro summer bunting. She has a easy and fun tutorial on her blog HERE so you can make your own!

Candy Camp!

I received an email the other day saying that Dylans Candy Bar in NYC is hosting candy camp this summer. What a fun idea!!
I was thinking that may be a fun thing to do on this blog, candy camp for adults! We could have games, activities, crafts and of course, candy!
More info to come.... photos via pink sherbert photography

If you haven't had the pleasure of visiting Dylans Candy Bar, it certainly is a sweet place!

come one, come all...

Who doesn't love a good ice cream social! (via Sofia Katariina)
So what is this blog all about? Think summertime treats with a retro vintage vibe....
green grass
fresh fruit
garage sales
amusement parks
and of course ice cream!!
Here is a beautiful post about hosting an ice cream social and a DIY ice cream parlour party for some inspiration.

The summer fun begins here. If you'd like to get involved please feel free to send me an email. I want this to be a community blog, a summer long ice cream social in blogland. If you have a summer swap you'd like to announce, a giveaway, a post idea, inspirational photos that conjure up images of summer fun, a craft tutorial, pretty much anything summery footloose and fancy free, feel free to get in touch.
