Saturday: Week In Pictures

This Week Flew

Hey gang. Is it just me or did this week fly? Phew, it whipped right by in the blink of an eye. It was full. 

Got lots of work done, including shipping prints and products from Bates Mercantile Co. to far away places.

On my Speakeasy front (for those of you who don't know, I've owned my own pr/adv/marketing firm for 18 years) I spent time designing a new logo and business card for my client/friend Deb, among many other things.

Deb happens to be a fabulous photographer and will be shooting some of the G-man's Lia products next week.

Speaking of G-man's products, I added his small pedestal votive/planter to Bates Mercantile Co. this week (which you can also try to win in the giveaway). Love this one.

I also added this fabulous belt to our etsy shop...

....and two new illustrations. This one makes me happy. I am not a morning person, but I've been known to say 'good morning sunshine' to people who are.  It's colorful, it's got dala horses, and it just makes me smile. I think it would be too cute in a kitchen, a kids room or nursery, or wherever for that

This one makes me laugh. We've all said it at one time or another, but can you really imagine? It would be frightful.

We also enjoyed part of Dublin family for a couple of days (more on that tomorrow).

Spent some time in the pool. Ah, sunset from the pool. What a way to unwind from the day. This shot did it's own thing, but I think it's pretty cool.

We got a little rain....ok, another lashing of rain. There was more last night, and it was a slower, steadier rain. Just what we needed.

Our brief encounters with rain made my phlox pop.

It also meant I didn't have to spend serious amounts of time watering everything. For this I am grateful.

Sunset Meadows

I get a better shot of Sunset Meadows if I actually get out of the pool.

I am eternally grateful for our sunsets.

I am also grateful that is the weekend. Working at my desk today. Gar's just back from errands and is about to start pouring some stepping stones for our friend.  Later will sure bring some pool time and 4th of July Chowda' from the freezer. Dang, I nearly forgot....I'm still hosting 'the party that wouldn't end'. It has been a busy week.

What was your week like? What's hot for today?

catch ya on the flip side,


  1. Wow! You HAVE had quite a week!! Love the pedestal votive/planter and the red belt!

    1. funny how it all just rolls along, then you look back and realized it was pretty packed.

  2. you have been busy....wish I could say the same. lol

    1. funny how you just kind of go through the motions, then look back and that was a busy week.

  3. Pam, I love the photo of the tree in the rain. You captured a really cool image there! We have Mom visiting, so I've been away from my blog and the photo challenge! Gotta get back. I'm not as good at multitasking as I was in my younger days!

    1. it was one of those crazy summer humidity storms that blew through. just had another too. hope you are enjoying your time with mom. I stink at multitasking.

  4. I am not a morning person either..I so hear ya on that one! I love the "If these walls could talk..." print! :)


You comments make my day. Thanks for taking the time to visit Mercantile Muse and for commenting. I really appreciate it. ~Pam
