Summer's End

Summer is coming to end so soon....
let's enjoy some last-minute summer fun
before the weather gets cool
and the days get shorter....

Rocky Mountains

Here in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains,
we look forward to the aspen trees changing color.
They provide us with colorful splashes of yellow,
gold and some flames of russet.

But, before that happens, 
I think we should take a last visit to the beach...
(of course, not here in land-locked Colorado....)

Do you know? Let me know so I can credit!

Here are some charming bears, ready for late 
summer activities:

I believe I got these from origamibears
They are from sheets of wrapping paper.

Next is one of my Collage Paper Paintings.
I use all recycled junk mail and upcycled magazines to create my  one-of-a-kind paper collages.

Mary, Mary, quite contrary, is checking on her 
last flowers of the season:

I like to include "FUN FINDS" when I list each Collage Painting. With Mary, the 'fun find' is
her bottom skirt is made from a Q-tip ad!

Now is the perfect time and temperature
 to get lots of dog walks in!

Or, er, rabbit walks?

Perfect weather for a little serenading too...

I'd like to finish with a charming paper doll set
'Little Susan'
She has many darling outfits that will take her from Summer into Fall with a nice Autumn coat!

I believe I got this set from Origamibears

That's all for today friends.
Remember to step outside and breathe in 
the last of summer...
