  1. Such serene, lovely pictures!
    Now off to have some summer watermelon, tomatoes and nap, and of course some chocolate. Did you mention chocolate? :)

  2. I love fresh vegetables from the garden, taking long weekends away and day trips in the summer!

  3. Beautiful shots! And I love the mini cloche, such a lovely idea!

  4. So happy to have found your lovely site today. I love all the same things as you especially the beach and seashells.

    Visiting from the week-long Blog Party.

    Hope you come visit & say hello sometime. :O)

  5. Beautiful shots Olive! At least I was able to find you! Vanna

  6. Beautiful images Olive!
    It has been cool here the past couple of days but it is early yet. Looking forward to a lazy summer day

  7. Girl, your photos are just beautful! Love that stack of books and those gorgeous shells! summer at the beach, OK, I could go for that, would you like to run away? xoxo Debra

  8. Beautiful pictures! Ahhh, the beach. We were supposed to be there this week, but plans changed. And what do I love about the summer? There's nothing I don't like about it except the profuse glistening my body seems to produce.

  9. Beautiful vignette and photography, Olive...Christine

  10. Hi Olive...

    Ohhh...I love the summertime as well, my friend! You certainly have created a beautiful, summertime vignette to enjoy! Love your big conch shells! It also looks like you have some great books to keep you company while you're "lazying" around! Hehe! Nothing like a great book and big ol' glass of iced tea!

    Well dear lady, I just wanted to come by to say thank you for visiting my seaside water tablescape! I sooo enjoyed your visit and sweet note! Thank you, my friend!

    Warmest summery wishes,

  11. Garden tomatoes and peppers and basil. Eggplant parmesan sandwiches. Gaspacho. Are you detecting a pattern? Glad to see you got all ironed out! We all know the frustration. This is a lovely beachy post! Enjoy your weekend!

  12. Definitely like the napping part. Also like corn on the cob and ice cream. Can you tell I'm waiting for dinner? Great photos.

  13. I can almost hear the sea. Lovely blog I enjoyed my visit and look forward to many more. Hugs!


I adore your comments. They are like finding unexpected chocolates. olive
