peachy

peach
Hello new week! We're deep into August, and I'm feeling recharged after a wonderful visit from our dearest friends. A weekend with people you love (but don't see enough) leaves such an afterglow... a lingering sweetness. I awoke to an emptier and quieter house, but one filled with dozens and dozens of ripening fruit. We had all picked peaches together... pecks and pecks of peaches! I'll be baking and preserving them all week!

This simple "ribbon" skirt is just another variation of the aptly named Reinvention Skirt, that's finally ready. The final tester got back to me last night, and it has been deemed quite peachy! I'll be adding the finishing touches of illustrations and photographs tonight after the kids are tucked in.  I've even decided to include my favorite summer recipe that I baked this weekend. Yes, it will be chock full of inspiration and deliciousness, just like our weekend. Hope you had a great one, too! Pin It

    Is okay to say have fun baking and preserving? LOL, I know it's a lot work so not sure if it's an enjoyable work for you. With peaches like that I have to think it's going to be fun!
    Do you have a great for peach cobbler to share?

  8. "Peck of peaches" made me smile. I really like the fabric of your... apron? Or is it a second skirt? Hard to tell in the photo, either way, very pretty pattern. x

  15. i was obsessed with peaches this summer... and mostly with the combo peaches+amaretti [which are italian cookies] i tried it in any form - tarts, smoothys, salads.. *slurp!* so if you get the chance to find these cookies [i saw they're on amazon too!] give it a try ;)
