Thinking About Summer
We live on the Cumberland Plateau, in the westernmost portion of eastern Tennessee, and we got the same really heavy rainstorms which caused so much damage to the Nashville area last weekend. We're very thankful that they only caused very minor flooding in our area.
Since the storm ended, we've had wonderful, warm, sunny, days, just like early Summer. Even though it's really still Spring, it has me thinking about Summer. With that in mind, I found the perfect image to share with all of you.
I think she's lovely, and how perfect that it mentions "Summer" and "Tennessee". Click on the image to enlarge, then save it to your computer.
I've also been working away on some new items for my Etsy shop, DigitalAntiques. My latest brainstorm is another set of labels. This time they're for Vintage Fireworks, and perfect for Americana decorating, or 4th of July. I really like this set, partly because I loved fireworks as a child, and partly because it gave me a chance to work with those wonderful, decorative, type styles beloved by Victorian advertisers. Here are a few samples:
These "Old Time Fireworks Labels" are available now at Etsy, for digital download, and you can print them as many times as you like. Make a great display with papier mache or gift boxes, or simply frame them for a seasonal display.
More new things are on the way in the coming days, including more free images. Thanks for visiting, from the Dog and me.
