Enjoying The Last Bit Of Summer Around The House

Hello and Happy Sunday Friends, it's been a busy week for me still playing
 "catch up" after being in Europe for an entire month. The weather has been
absolutely wonderful in Washington State since we got back.
Cool nights and beautiful sunny days.

Today I took some pics from around the house. We are enjoying every
second of this beautiful weather while we still can.....



Front Porch, soon I will decorate for fall out here...

Lovin the Heather Plant








And onto the back porch...




I enjoyed watching "Willie" our tortoise cruising around 
the back deck this morning. 
Soon he will have to come inside again for the winter months.
Bugsy was chillin out there too
ooops my flowers are all dead here lol....
I took this picture of Bugsy this morning....
he kills me with cuteness
And here are some more cuties enjoying the summer-like weather while it lasts....The little boy on the ladder is ours and the other 2 cuties are his partners in crime and neighbors...lol

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you are all 
enjoying lots of sunshine as well!!!!
xoxoxo

  1. Christine- What a great post with wonderful pictures. I love the way your front door is set on an angle. We almost bought a really old house one time because I loved the way the door was set like that. Can't wait to see your porch decorated for Fall.

    That last picture of the kids is darling- xo Diana

  2. Welcome Back Christine!! Your outdoor scapes look great and ready for our move into fall here. I Love your Olympia Pillow, did you find it around town here? FYI, a new Design Center in town will be opening soon. Enjoy the day, I know it does take time to get back on track after being away for a month!!
    Huggs, Nancy

  3. Oh I so wish summer was dragging its heels in my part of the world. It is full on sweater weather here. I pulled out my boots, my fall coat and sweaters on the weekend. Brrrr....
    Your place looks great btw in every season!!

  4. I know it is "fall" almost everywhere (and even Christmas in some of the store), but I love your end of summer look. My favorite part is the CUTE pillow in the first photo. Thanks for sharing with us. Everything looks fantastic!

  8. Good to know that you're having nice weather there. We are finally having cooler temps here and it is beginning to feel like Fall. I'm happy about that. Our summers are always so hot and humid. Love seeing your sweet pets. You know you've got the tortise and the hare thing going on at your house. LOL!

  12. The Olympia pillow caught my eye over at the Twirl & Take a Bow link party, so I had to check it out! Very cute. We have a similar one at the shop I work in for Mukilteo! :) We have had such a beautiful summer in WA state, I'm not ready for fall just because it still feels like summer! What a lovely outdoor space you have, and I love the bench on the porch.

  36. Christine, glad you're soaking up the last bit of summer! One of my favorites is your rustic bench on the front porch, and how easily you can change it up! And, of course, I'll never tire of seeing Willie and Bugsy! :) Thanks for sharing at Best of the Nest!
