Labor{less} Day

Wednesday, September 9, 2009 |
We had a very relaxing weekend to end our summer.
Friday evening my husband and I met up with friends for happy hour. It was nice to catch up and hear what everyone has been up to the past few weeks.
Saturday morning I took many of my tassels and created a display for a cute boutique in Mystic. They are now being sold in two stores ~ keeps me on my toes.
That afternoon we went with friends to the vineyard for a little wine, tasty treats and the most amazing jazz ~ these guys were talented!


The first signs of fall ~ can you see the reddish hint on the shrub above? There were several trees and shrubs that are just beginning to show the change of season.


Sunday afternoon we had lunch at the Country Club. It was a beautiful sunny day but a bit on the chilly side.
I made sure I wore Lilly and white all weekend. My grandmother embedded the "white rule" into my head as a very young child and I just can't get around it ~ sorry :)

Monday I made a few more tassels {below} for my Etsy shop. Later that afternoon we had dinner with our neighbors at one of our favorite clam shacks. They close on Labor Day and we just *had to* fit in one more visit for the season.

Summer is officially over for our family. We are back in school, the nights are cool and the mornings are chilly. I've brought out a few autumn decorations and before I know it, it will be Halloween!

Hope you found time to relax and enjoy the last weekend of summer!

Looks like it was a great weekend - hard to put away the Lilly for the season, isn't it? But, it's fun to start decorating, and dressing, for fall.

My Grandmother and Mother were big sticklers with the no white policy as well.....somehow you can never get those voices out of your head!

Hope you are having a good week!
