The last of summer

"Try to remember the kind of September
When life was slow and oh so mellow
Try to remember the kind of September
When grass was green and grain so yellow
Try to remember the kind of September
When you were a young and a callow fellow
Try to remember and if you remember
Then follow--follow, oh-oh."  

Try to Remember, Lyrics by Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt  

A small section of our back yard
Bench purchased in El Paso, Texas
Quilt - Family heirloom
Book - of your choosing
Glass - unknown maker
Pillow created by moi - instructions to come.

Linking to Artie's Vignette Fridays! Be sure to visit the rest of the wonderful party people!

Ohhh...what a fabulous and fond farewell to summer! I can't think of any other way that I would rather spend the time! I love your bench and the colors of it. And...your quilt and patchwork pillow are gorgeous! Yes...I could definitely spend some time here! Thank you for sharing it with us today! I'm coming over from Artie's Vignette Fridays party!

Warmest wishes,

Marvelous bench...does it stay out in the open year round? It appears that it might have been constructed from repurposed pieces of vintage wood furniture? Thanks for stopping by and for sharing this inspirational vignette. Cherry Kay

You are so sweet leaving me a very comment, Marlis. I have trying to add you on my blog list and somehow, it freezes. I don't know why, but I will keep trying....Christine
