little summer delights

growing up on the east coast, summer was all about running around barefoot in the backyard, playing in the tide pools at our towns beach and riding the ferry to see my grandparents in their summer escape from the city.
climbing trees. roller skating. collecting mini frogs and lighting bugs. inspecting the sea creatures and seaweed and collecting shells. eating ice cream, hamburgers and corn on the cob. rainy days spent playing card games or drawing. no t.v. rule on our house, only movie night and which was usually a disney movie, Freaky Friday, Swiss Family Robinson, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang...
oh how delightful it was.

how did you spend your summer as a child?

this rhubarb pie makes for a perfect summer sweet. anyone have a good recipe?

little ity bity crab
i heart the sea creatures

clothespins anyone?


um hello, is this not outrageous!
Artist, Annie Morris created this clothespin dress for Christopher Bailey creative director of Burberry.

I think there could be a "dress off" between this dress and the peacock dress I wrote about here.
don't you think?

In the meantime, I'm trying my best to get work done in this Milano heat wave (no AC, helloooooo) while daydreaming of our haven place here. sadly we will not be heading to the island but instead we are traveling to visit my side of the ocean to see family and friends. Yay! What are you doing this summer?

dance like claudia cardinale

Claudia Cardinale

the stunning claudia cardinale
show's off her dancing skills below

how stylish is this party scene from the film, "Il magnifico cornuto"

Claudia and Telly Savalas dancing in the film, "Escape to Athena". I think all men should dance with their ladies like this. it's just plain HOT. i've had the pleasure of witnessing the real thing on the little island we escape to during the summer, and let me tell you, it's kinda sexy to watch. Hot i tell you. just plain HOT.

to really see how it's done go here
