A Farewell to Summer

Even though summer does not officially end until September 22rd this year, Labor Day unofficially brings it to a close.  But before the leaves start changing and we pull out our woolen sweaters there is still time to enjoy a few final summer indulgences. 

One of my favorite places in New York is the Union Square Green Market.  There is nothing better than filing my trusty shopping bags with fresh produce, bread and flowers.  Copabanana has a great selection of market bags in vintage fabrics.  Since everything is so fresh and fragrant all you really need to do is toss your market finds in a bowl or on a platter and enjoy.  Check out Take Me Homeware for some terrific pieces.

Get out and enjoy the last few days of summer.

P.S. Apologies for there being no images in this post.  Apparently my image files decided to take the holiday off.

Great suggestion for enjoying these last days of summer - especially since this is one of the best times of the year for fresh produce! Will need to check this out over the next week.
