Team-Up Thursday: Week Nineteen (SIGNS)

signs diptych

You might not believe me, but Melody and I did not compare notes before doing this diptych...really. We must have summer on the brain because we both ended up interpreting our theme as "signs of summer." S'mores and swimming: what could be better?

The funny backstory for mine is that this photo was taken in our backyard in drizzling rain. It was the holiday weekend, the cousins were here, and darned if we were going to miss an opportunity to make s'mores. So we didn't.

Show us what you have today, and don't forget our flickr pool.

P.S. Next week, Melody and I are working on MIRROR as our theme.

Signs of summer looks good to me! We've had some hot weather here, so swimming and eating Smores looks delectable. :0) Great theme. Its open to so many interpretations.

Yes! All signs point to SUMMER! I love that your shot was taken in the rain but you were all persistent in getting the good stuff anyhow!

We stuck with you guys and SIGNS and my shot would have worked with your summery ones as well...Kimberly of course had to go get all clever and creative! :-)

Michel said...

Oh these are TWO of my FAVORITE signs of summer! I wait all winter long for this. Unfortunately, it's not here yet for us - but we can dream and say, "Maybe tomorrow!" Nicely done team.

How neat that you both ended up with signs of summer. However, with kids it's hard not to think about summer and outdoor play time all the time too. Love those smores!

Marty and I did SIGNS too.

Jessie said...

How funny that you both went with summer. You both rock! My girls can't wait to swim everyday and I can't wait for nights at the fire. Cool week for you ladies!

Angie and I did SIGNS as well :)

Christina said...

I think we're ALL on the same page of summer joy! Love it that you both took a theme as wide as "signs" and interpreted it the same way. Fresh and refreshing!
