Things I Love Today: Summer Linens

What is it about the start of summer that inspires nostalgic feelings? Nostalgia for things that never even happened. For rhubarb pies you didn't bake, swimming holes that didn't exist and garden parties you never attended. I blame it on the Country Time Lemonade commercials.

That ambiguous nostalgia combined with the fact that I reached a milestone at the gym last night (10d!) has me shopping online for a treat. I think three sets of these napkins from Anthropology might satisfy both cravings.

You are SO right! I not only crave the nostalgia of summer for things I've never experienced (I blame all those magazine pictorials of lazy summer days)but also for the perfect summer weather we don't have. We live in Louisiana and to us summer weather means highs in the 100's PLUS extreme humidity. Nonetheless, I crave summer and everything it represents...especially the ice cream cones!

I look forward to the lazy days of summer too, and even took out a few linens to display on tables. Ready for a picnic. When I was young summer makes me think of no school, camping trips, visiting friends etc. Come to think of it I have the same thoughts as an adult.
