hampton's in my dream

Excuse me while I dream of summering in the Hamptons.

Shopping in Southampton sure sounds Mcdreamy.

Dreaming of riding my bike to the beach with a good book until thoughts of food and more shopping tempt one to stray to another snappy Hampton's village.
A jaunt into Easthampton to pick up some lunch and take the dog to the groomer.
Perhaps a mani, pedi and a facial for moi.

Stopping to admire and sketch things like the charming windmill in Easthampton.
Glad I remembered to bring my watercolors...(in my dream)

Suddenly you are back in the smelly, hot city but happy to realize that you are not the only one who is dreaming of spending the entire Summer in the Hamptons.
After all there is no other place like New York in the Summer!

Savouring dreamy memories of the Hamptons scenes
and dreaming of owning your own little Summer cottage.
Then you wake up and realize that it is all a Southampton's recessionista dream.
Where are your summer dreams taking you?

Looks like another light, summer read to add to the already impressive pile...... Hoping that it will cool off for our upcoming trip to NC. Leaving Maine in the summer is crazy- after all~ it is vacationland!

loving the little trip that you took us on this AM and I am thinking that you might have to do a sketch or two of Door County once I'm back mid August!

My summer dreams take me to a place I was in for July 4th weekend. It's on the southern coast of MA, whereby people don't lock their doors and everyone smiles and says "hello" as their riding their bicycle w/wicker baskets. So delightful!

I like chatting on the Jitney. I am shocked when I hear people complaining about the traffic and rude restaurants. I don't mind being parked, indefinitely, next to a perfect hydrangea, and I am entertained by arrogance.

Yes please!!!!

For me, it's Amalfi Coast in my dreams. OK, I'm ordering the book, it sounds delightful, and after all we are living the life, aren't we? Your work is enchantment completely, totally. xx's
