in the garden - stems of phlox

In the garden....... I cut the last of the summer blooming phlox. So fragrant, It perfumes the air indoors for days. Sure to be, one of my last bouquet's from the garden.

OUT + ABOUT - The Bainbridge Island farmers market

One of my favorite ways to start my weekend, is with a visit to the Bainbridge Island farmers market. Visiting the stalls and planning the weekend menu with what's fresh at the market. Late summer is beautiful and abundant - the stalls overflowing with goodness.

I always start with a visit to La Belle Saison - for my sweet fix! Amazing pies, tarts, cookies and scones. Then,  in need of some sunflowers to brighten my world - I picked up a bouquet from one of my other favorite vendors - Farmhouse Organics.  I can never get enough of summer, and the ripe and tasty heirloom tomatoes - from Butler Green farms.  I'm thinking a caprese salad is in my future!!

Just before departing - I spotted and couldn't resist a little sweet pea bouquet for my desk - it will help bring me joy during my work week. After my morning at the market, Madrone Lane is such a perfect spot to sit and enjoy people watching and a pastry or latte after my morning excursion at the Bainbridge island Farmers Market. I hope your weekend is just as enjoyable as mine has been.

simple pleasures - roadside bouquets from zack and eli's

With my own garden fading fast - but, still in need of some simple blooms to grace the home. I often like to stop while out running errands and put together a roadside bouquet from Zack and Eli's flower stand. Late blooms of colorful dahlia's and sunflowers sit ready for purchase. I love the simple pleasures of these roadside bouquets.

sandcastle's by the seashore

Earlier this summer, with my sand pail bucket in hand - I crossed the bridge and visited the shores of Indianola for the annual summertime event celebrating Indianola days. Part of the weekend celebration includes the much anticipated sandcastle contest.  I love this little community filled with cozy cottage's that sit along the bluff's looking out to sea.
Taking place at low tide..... everyone gets to work - young and old and the dogs too! There was much creativity to admire and behold. Thank you to my new twitter and blogger friend fernwoodsy for posting details prior to the event.
