On Labor Day it was like a cosmic switch was flipped: suddenly we could smell fall and a chill crept into the air. We’re totally down with Thoreau and thinking of ways to spark summer’s lovely feeling even in the dark days of winter.
We rely our melamine faux paper plates with little ants walking across them. They always do the trick, making us feel picnic-y, beachy, summery. At 5 for a set of four, here, they are a bargain (and a great gift).
Oyster shell salt and pepper cellars makes us flash “summer” at the dinner table…
Most powerfully, Ellen Silverman’s teeny video taken at Narragansett beach just a few weeks ago makes us FEEL the waves washing over our feet (We find that if we stand up and look down at it on a tablet with our feet in view, we are suddenly THERE). Video link here.
