The Summer Elements Blog Hop




Welcome to the Summer Elements Blog Hop Sign-Ups. My apologies for the original "mysterious" post: I had scheduled the post yet was unable to complete it when a family member became ill last week. So, finally, here it is! 



Summer. 

It's just around the corner. Warm sunshine dancing through the leaves of the trees. Fresh morning air. Waking to the song of birds. 




Long, warm days. The laughter of children playing happily in our neighborhoods, home from school on summer vacation. Family time. Vacations and swimming. The excitement of getting shorts and sandals out of storage, and new sandals. The fun of bathing suits, coconut sunscreen and cool new beach towels. 





The smell of cook-outs in the evening and fresh herbs in the garden. Relaxing walks among roses and beautiful yards, blooming flowers and trimmed lawns. Sitting and enjoying the simple outdoors. 




Candles flickering in the evening light, relaxing as fireflies dance around us and summer stars twinkle above. 




Summer gardens and fresh produce. Refreshing rain showers. Growth and healthfulness.  Farmers Markets. Yard Sales. Renewal and bounty. Fun abounds. 




The Elements of Summer. Air. Water. Fire. Earth. Spirit. Unique for the season, special to each of us. 


AIR

WATER



FIRE


EARTH


SPIRIT




Create and share what you love about an element of summer. It can be jewelry, beads, a recipe, a craft, vacation memories, campfire songs -- anything that celebrates summer. Whether it be gardening  advice, a quilt with a fireworks motif, a sand & sea necklace, your favorite apple pie recipe for the 4th of July, a sand dollar made of clay, a waterfall design, photography, or a tutorial for creating bath salts or potpourri from the garden! 

To participate, please comment with your email below. If you have more than one blog, or if you'd like to share on Facebook, please let me know in your comment where you will be posting your favorite summer element. You may also email me, if you prefer, at toltecjewels (at) aol (dot) com. If you prefer to send email, please include your blog url and name in your email. I will create a final list of participants about a week before the hop. 

Please feel free to post this SUMMER ELEMENTS badge on your site, with a link to this post, so everyone can share and celebrate their favorite elements of summer :) 




Most important: HAVE FUN!
