The solstice is upon us ...

peace and happiness to all on this the longest day of the year ...
In this part of the world it is .... grey ... a little windy ... and there is a mist ... which is really just a bit of moisture in the air but not enough to call a rain ... maybe i am in low lying clouds on this little mountain...

I drove my daughter to work and noticed the clothing on people ... jackets ... long pants ... close toed shoes ... this isn't saying much for the first day of summer ... although i had on capris and flipflops i threw on my heavy winter sweater as protection against the cold & grey that is "summer"

and then the door bell rang!!! No the mailman didn't bring me summer in a box, but he did bring me these ....


can ya feel my heart beat? A beautiful little box of goodies from one of my favourite Etsy sellers Caramelos . If you haven't shopped Etsy for ribbons and lace and vintage seam binding ... i would totally recommend it ... and I have found that Caramelos has a great selection ... she ships really fast and her product is top notch ... she also carries dresden foils and glitters and all sorts of little goodies!

So i think i will use this longest day to create some of my own sunshine using maybe some of this gorgeous vintage seam binding or this lovely polkadot tulle or maybe even this pink burlap ribbon or maybe ....


Peace, love & paper ~ Jo

It is the longest day of the year? Then I shall play water fight outside when the kids awake from nap!

It's most hot and miserable outside here.

I hope you get lots of sunshine soon.
