Summer's Last Gasp

All over the blogosphere, fall is being welcomed with photos of fuzzy sweaters, cozy plaid and wool textiles, knee high boots and autumn leaves.

I am in denial.

Fall came hard here in Minnesota.  One day a week or two ago it was 90 degrees on Monday, and we spent it swimming and lazing by the pool, flipping idly through magazines.  Then, that Thursday, a frost warning.  We said good-bye to the garden and got out the girls' hats and mittens.  Now, a little bit of Indian Summer has me hanging on to the last gasp of warm weather (but Saturday it is already October).

I just went though a pile of old magazines and scanned the bejeezus out of them.  As temperatures dwindle, I think I might have to share a summer house or two to ease the pain.

How about this cute beach shack by one of my perennial faves, Peter Dunham, photographed for Coastal Living by Lisa Romerein?





Loving Mr. Dunham's signature mix of ethnic prints, particularly in this navy and red palette that--who knew--is having a moment for me just now.  And of course, it is a shack on the beach.  Designed by Peter Dunham.  What's not to love?

Do you mind if I share these things with you?  I know, in a way, it's a lazy post, just sharing a house published in a magazine.  But it's a lot of work, scanning and cropping and resizing and uploading.  And I wouldn't do it if I didn't think you'd like to see.

So.  Let me know?
