Here are a few items from Etsy artisans showing some of my favorite things about summer:

~ Swimming ~

Grace Gallery - The Plunge

TR Woodworks -Primitive Handmade Garden Tote in Barnwood.

~ and Quilting about Gardening ~

NH QuiltArts - The Garden Quilt

~ Picnics ~

 Art by Lynn - Savannah Celebration

~ the Beach ~

Polites - Clear Morning

~ and Hanging out with Friends and Family ~

Petette - Personalized Family Pillow

These are just a few of my favorite things about summer, what are yours?
