Oh summer, how I missed you and your aesthetically pleasing ice cream cone colors. How's everybody's summer going?

Every good sourthern girl knows...

That sweet tea should be drank liberally, especially during the summer. And what better way to enjoy it than to add sweet, ripe summer grown peaches?!

This is how I make mine:

3 peaches, starting to ripen.
1/2 cup of sugar
Two bags of Lipton's Cold Brew tea.

Cut your fruit into pieces, and obviously throw away the pit only after you've eaten the rest of the peach away from it. ;-) Combine everything into your favorite pitcher or decanter and add water. I let mine brew quite a bit longer than the directions say, about twenty minutes. Once you remove the tea bags, just throw it in the fridge for a few hours to get the best peach flavor possible. 
And success!  Just pour a glass over ice and enjoy!

You now have a wonderfully southern treat!

I love my lion king decanter!

saturday at the antique mall

The tag attached read, "Fawn Planter. Looks a lot like Bambi."

The husband and I mosied over to GasLamp Antiques today to have a look around at all the goodies. It was the perfect way to spend this super hot afternoon, just short of sitting under a sprinkler. Thanks to all of these yard sales and antique mall visits, this new collection of mine is taking off already! I looove my new fawn planter! The vintage fabric in the background of the picture was another purchase I made there today. It was two dollars but I couldn't pass it up, I adore the colors!

Then I found some old photographs of dogs. I don't know what it is, but I love old pet photos. The one in the far left corner is my favorite. On the back someone had written, "Daddy's truck and a dog." The poor guy didn't even have a name! Maybe I will have to make one up for him.

Oh to be at the beach today.

Today in Tennessee it is hooot, so it's going to be a day of sewing and sketching in the studio! It's hard to believe it's already June, which for me means it's time to kick it into high gear for the GRADD Arts and Crafts Festival. Yes, it is still four months away, but that means I have plenty of time to make some jewelry and continue to learn to sew cute things. Mom and I are going to teach ourselves to make slouchy bags when she comes in next week. I'll post a picture of our results!

Skittish Coyote had a booth there in 2008 and I even got interviewed in the local paper which I did NOT expect with all the super talented people there!

coco and the coyote

On second thought, I may change the logo of Skittish Coyote to this. I'm in love <3

I ordered a stamp with the logo I designed (albeit badly, but free), and I'm iiiitching for it to get here. I got the idea from The Dainty Squid She may well be my favorite person on the world wide web. She makes the cutest coin purses and seems sweet as sugar :)
