Goodbye Summer

This weekend, we’re celebrating Labor Day in the States!
Take time to savor your favorite moments of summer
Before you fall forward into autumn!

Here are a few of our favorites finds from the week…
Can you sense the theme?

Maya – Pretty Crocheted Top

Crocheted Top

Are you in the midst of a heat wave like we are?
Maya’s pretty crochet top, inspired by Frida Kahlo will
Help you stay cool and look pretty in pink!

Nancy – Frozen Berry Smoothie

Frozen Berry Smoothie

Just because a new month begins
Doesn’t mean the season ends for you!
If you live in a place that’s warm year round –
If you live in a place where you are heading into spring/summer –
Or if you are working on your health goals –
Nancy’s Frozen Berry Smoothie is a great treat to enjoy year-round!

Maria – Gathering Wild Flower Bouquets

Creating Wildflower Bouquets

Nothing says summer like a fresh bouquet of
Hand-picked wildflowers beautifying your home!
Marcia shares her favorite tips and memories!

Linda – Prayer & Butterfly Card

Sending Prayers Butterfly Card

Linda created this beautiful card using
Some of her favorite crafting supplies (can you spot them?)
What can you create using your favorite supplies this weekend?
Share your artwork – we’d love to see it!

Music To Inspire You
Welcome To
Music Moves Me!

This week’s theme at Music Moves is songs about school.
I wanted to share one that spun school in a positive light
So I turned to the #1 Billboard 1976 hit song by John Sebastian
(From the 1960s group the Lovin’ Spoonful)
That he wrote for the 1970s hit comedy that
Launched the career of superstar John Travolta.
The story behind the songis worth the click!

Welcome Back – John Sebastian

Inspire Me Monday #555 – September 4, 2022

Inspire Me Monday

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!
Judy Palmer

    I grew up in New York City and left it in the mid 70’s and it was wonderful to see some of these now-vintage street scenes. The song is a favorite, too.

      I enjoyed the scenes too! I was torn between posting the Intro/Outro or a different video with clips from the show and John singing over them – but I opted for the original because the sound quality was better (although the other video is a lot of fun!)
