Some of my Favorite Summer Things.

Affordable bunches of colored flowers, always fresh...

Treasure hunting and nice vintage finds (even if you'll be surprised to know that over here there are no flea markets during July and August! :(( So silly, in my humble opinion!)...
Teatime or coffee break in the garden...
Zinnias and Dahlias...

Starfish and pearls (these are my favorites all year round!)...
Losing track of the time reading a good book under the patio...
Happy Pink Saturday everyone! And enjoy your weekend, wherever you are! 


  1. Looks great . . . have a fun weekend.

  2. Happy Pink Saturday, Monica! What pretty photos you have shared today! Lovely flowers! Gorgeous teacup, pearls, and starfish; those are some of my favourite things. I do live near the ocean, in fact we just got home from spending the afternoon on the beach. It was a gorgeous day out there! Thanks for sharing your pretties and I wish you a beautiful weekend.


  3. Monica,
    que tengas un maravilloso fin de semana!!!

  4. Hi Monica Sweetie...
    What a beautiful share today. I so love the zinnias. They are exquisite and make any room so delightful.

    The photo you took of the starfish with the teacups and the pearls draped, just DDG. I love them. You are really great with the lens of your camera.

    Hope you have a beautiful day sweet friend. Thanks for sharing.

    Country hugs, Sherry
