On A Very Hot Summer's Day

I have started working on a fun project of which I will give you a little glimpse. But first..

Today temperatures are expected to reach a scorching 100 degrees fahrenheit in parts of the Northeast. Schools may close early (or so my kids are hoping) so I have planned to catch up on work and projects at home.

On days like this the tendency is to dream about (if not to visit) some place, any place by the water. I just had to turn to some perfectly dreamy pictures of places near and far - pardon my indulgence for a brief moment.

But before it gets really oppressive outside I have to make a quick dash to Michael's to pick up some more of these

for a project I am working on.  A sneak peek.....

I am hoping for something unique and pretty to share very soon. Stay tuned!
