Remember When...

Remember when you were a kid, and it was summertime, and you had no bills to pay, no laundry waiting to be folded? Remember getting on your bike and riding around the block with your friends, going down to the creek to catch minnows, playing dress-up in your tree house, and catching fireflies in your back yard? Well, here is a feature that evokes all those memories and more!

What summer would be complete without a trip to the lake - swimming, boating, fishing... here is a great print from Downtime Photography that brings back memories of summer vacations with the family.

Remember packing up sandwiches, lemonade and cookies in a basket and having picnics in the park? here is a great picnic set from Ye Olde General Store that is sure to bring back memories of lunch on the grass.

Or how about trips to the beach?
is a great tote from Neeniepie just perfect for carrying sunscreen, flip-flops and a frisbee!

Take along some delicious smores on that next trip to the beach or to the park, courtesy of Just Bakin! Yum!

How many summer nights did you spend catching fireflies? Here's a great little item from Bragging Bags that will bring back those memories.

turn back the clock to dress-up days with these fabulous finds:

A lovely daisy pendant from The Curious Cupcake,
a fun and flirty gingham dress from OneAvianDaemon,

This sweet pink and pearly headband from Tali Epstein,

a fun coin purse from My Tiny Dancer,
or a sparkly, sunny citrine necklace from Silvias Heart

and last but not least, childhood wouldn't be complete without a special friend to take along as you make those memories. This sweet little monkey from Bgordon2 will tag along anywhere.
