Summer is here, and I have the awesome Etsy picks to prove it!

Of course, summer this year isn't all sweltering heat and beating sun. In fact it's been dreary rain all day with hail and wind to make it really ugly out. I know we need the moisture and all but this is rediculous!
I guess it will extend the season of spring crops like strawberry and peas. But our warm season plants are suffering from not enough sun! What happened to a little thunderstorm every after noon?

But, I could take this lovely quilt and hang it over my window when ever it's rainy...think I'd need a queen size though! ForComfort made this wonderful wall hanging while longing for summer days and lush grass, and I would be happy to hang it year round! Lush greens and flowers are kind of the order of the day...

Now for flowers you can carry around, there's none nicer than visart's! These marvelous beads are ready for any project that's looking for a little touch of color. The garden will wilt and wither, but these will last a lifetime! Or, if you're not so crafty one could take the string of beads and wear them as a necklace right out of the box!

Here we have a lovely Lavender bloom, sparkle and lace, just the thing! RodeoQueen's choker is romantic and colorful, a perfect accent to a summer outfit for a night out dancing. All the textures will make people want to just reach out and touch it, a great way to meet folks! Summer nights are after all, even better then summer days...
Or this lovely light and airy shawl from vikki0908. The colors truly are Aubergine, and it makes me want to go check the garden for signs of eggplant blooms. The way the weather has been here in Denver, this would be just about the right amount of warm...

How about a summer colored bag for carrying around the rest of this stuff? Sineminugur has made an adjustable tote just right for a walk in the park, or a bike ride (my favorite!). You will have to wait for it to come from Istanbul (not Constanstinople) but I think it would be well worth it!
