Summer Snaps

Although the calendar says September 2, Labor Day Weekend has long been emblematic of the end of summer around here.  And I can't say that I am sorry to see it go.

Nevertheless, it had its moments.

We benefited from S's recent stint in culinary school.

My foray into the summer's coolest craze


Summer's bounty  
Summer's food
Summer fun
Summer past
Cool days ahead

Have a very happy and safe Labor Day Weekend!


  1. Love those snaps. Althogh I am looking forward to fall. I going to miss summer! Thanks for sharing those great pictures.

    Have a great weekend.

  2. I love it. The ice lollies look very tempting. The cherry bowl and the stone bowl made me giggle. The food had my mouth watering and I love the disarray of the cocktail shakers - one too many perhaps? Hope you have a great weekend. x

  3. FAITH: Thanks. I am looking forward to fall.

    KATH: I found those shakers shoved into the freezer in our friends' house in Nantucket. I rearranged them for a photo shoot one morning early when I was the only one awake as usual.

  4. Ahhh - as much as we pined for summer just 6 months ago, have to say I'm welcoming fall with open arms and an oven ready to bake! Gracious way to honor summer and then show it the door, Michele. xo

  5. You're making my mouth water looking at all those fabulous images. Love your site. :)

  6. CHRISTMAS PUDDING RECIPE: Thanks so much for stopping by and for the lovely compliment.

  7. Hi Michele--what a lovely wrap-up of summer! Summer now, and summers gone by---Labor Day is always the transition marker. Like you, I know that we will still have more hot-summery days ahead, but my thoughts have turned to fall. Those salmon croquettes look especially tasty to me.

  8. I would love a couple of ice lollies now ;-))

  9. I wish I could just hand one to you. Thank you for stopping by.

  10. What a lot of fun! I can't wait to see what you do this autumn.
