One last Hurrah!

Labor Day!
Summer's official "It's OVER" day.  
I don't think anyone in Texas will be sad to see this horrendously hot, dry summer come to an end.  Every conversation includes the weather and "how much longer can this go on"!

The forecast for Sunday and next week has temps below 100 and the possibility of rain, so I'm officially saying "GOODBY" (and good riddance) to the summer of 2011 with one last summery post.  From now on, it's going to be orange and pumpkins, and you'll see one happy blogger on these pages!

To me, one of the most summery color schemes has yellow in it.  Adding in shades of pink and coral just make me happy!  But it's a real challenge to combine these colors without it looking childish and juvenile.

So I thought I'd showcase some yellow and pink combinations that also have some sophistication and panache' to show that it can be done.

So, I have officially turned the page on this summer, pastel, light and bright thing.  You've had your last hurrah until the daffodils begin to bloom.  I'm looking forward to my favorite time of year and shades of pumpkin, aubergine, golds and greens. 
 I can't wait!.....Come on Fall!


  1. I love fall,
    but for us, that
    means a loooooong
    winter right behind
    it, which I don't
    love so much : )
    Good-bye summer,
    we hardly knew 'ya!

  6. Loving all your colorful inspiration. It's rainy, cool and gray here so this was a perfect post to perk up my day. I just can't believe it will soon really feel like fall!!

  7. This is the best yellow interior I have seen in a long while. Very beautiful.
