A Very Good Month

I love summer time!

It’s my favorite season of the year.

And July was a very good month for me. I enjoyed so many different things and stayed busy sewing, reading, blogging and viewing nature.

I took a photo from each of the posts I did in July and made a ‘month in review’ mosaic.

The only one I didn’t include was the fried pies. They were delicious but I was concentrating on eating them and not taking photos. lol

I hope you’ve all had a good summer so far.

Maybe I’ll make fried pies again this month and take some better pics!

I’m joining Beautiful Sunday and

Lavender Cottage for Mosaic Monday

and Amaze me Monday.

You certainly packed a lot into July! And I love the glimpses of Florida that remind me of the old Florida I used to know.

Margie said...

How fun! Glad to see that you've spent the summer months doing things to your heart's content. May August be just as fun!

I'm intrigued by the fried pie!

It's sure has been a busy month! I don't blame you for not taking the time to get a picture of your fried pies. They sound delicious!!

July was certainly a wonderful and productive month for you, my friend. I love the many outfits you created especially the recital dress.

Happy Monday!

Diane, fun to review your blogs in one picture! I did so enjoy the dolls and their beautiful outfits. We are definitely enjoying our summer in Maine! Texas is a bit warm at the moment.

Kathy said...

Glad the month was so good for you, Diane. I love the summer too. What a cute way to display the month in one shot.

Susie said...

Diane, I love all the new doll clothes you made in July. You did get a lot done and explored more trails, took great photos too. I am hoping this month is wonderful and full of pleasant temperatures. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

It is hard to believe that August is upon us! I am seeing more fall things in the stores and fall magazines are arriving at my house. God is good to give us seasons...I so enjoy each one.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Happy August, Diane! July went by way too quickly, but it looks like you had lots of fun from your collage! Fried pies sounds too good and so yummy --can't wait to see them the next time you make them!

Linda Walker said...

Hi Diane,
You did have a good month in July! You kept yourself busy with all kinds of activities! I must say your dollies live "the good life" with you!! LOL! Enjoy August!

Love the picture collage that you did with your photos. So hard to believe that it is August already...seems like Fall will be here before we know it.

podso said...

It's nice to hear someone in FL talk about enjoying summer but maybe you are up in the mountains again. I like your sweet mosaic and see all the doll clothes. You've been busy.

Cranberry Morning said...

Nice Mosaic, Diane. I hope your August is just as nice. xo

Joy H said...

Great mosaic! You have been busy ;)
Have a fun week and enjoy your summer!

Mary Cromer said...

Oh I am happy you mentioned the fried pies, did you make, or even think of lemon curd and blueberries? That sounds good, or even with raspberries. That was a great dessert idea. The mosaic is sweet~

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

A month collage is a great reminder of all that you did Diane. I've found summer going by at a nice pace and we've had perfect weather for the most part with temperatures in the mid 70's with rain at least once a week.
Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday.

BeachGypsy said...

Kim@Snug Harbor said...

I'm looking forward to the fried pies post!! Enjoy your week sweetie.

Trace4J said...

Wow truly wonderful.

Between working again, mowing and my sons Wedding..

I my friend am so ready for FALL!
Sending you a great big hug.
Woolie of course :))

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

Lovely collage and I had to laugh about the pies :)

ann said...

It was a good month. August always swoops by, too.

Susan Marlene Kinney said...

Hi Diane! You never fail to make me smile! I love your mosaic! I'd write more blog posts but I'm writing fiction and such! Yours is truly a fun blog to visit! :)

Susanne Tyree said...

Neat how you did a mosaic. I'm not sure I would know how to go about doing that, but then again I haven't been blogging as faithfully as you do. I like summer when the temperatures are in the 70's. My favorite seasons are spring and fall. Fried pies sound good. I use to make them all the time for my husband when he was alive. I learned to make them from his mother. Hope you are having a good week.
(((HUGS))) Susanne :)

Hello,
What a great idea with the mosaic.
I agree, July was a great month. Summer is flying by. I can already tell the change of season in the air here.
Have a great week!!
Carla

Donna said...

You look like you had so much fun this summer so far...and I would love to see fried pies....

Deborah Montgomery said...

That's a lot of posts! Love seeing all the dollies pictured. glad you had a nice July. Enjoy the month of August. I do hope it doesn't rush by too fast! My favorite season is fall, but I'm not in a hurry for it. More time to look forward to it ;)

Gina said...

Diane, what a beautiful mosaic! Have you thought about opening an Etsy shop and selling your doll clothes? They are lovely!

Diane Writes said...

Now I feel somehow guilty :( Haven't been blog hopping lately. My only saving grace,I'm happy to know that you are happy!
