Summertime Treats


Summer is my favorite time of the year! And it is beginning to look a lot like summer around here. The peonies are blooming, the artichokes have arrived, we are firing up the grill {almost} every night, and the sun is shining. I am already feeling more relaxed! 


I love Summer; for not only the amazing weather and days spent playing on the beach, but for the Summertime treats! Our vintage nut bar and candy bar are stocked! And the fruit bowls are full! 

We Love the classic popsicle! And with two toddlers who love treats just as much as their Mama does, this Zoku "Quick Pop Maker," that freezes ice pops in less than 7 minutes, on the countertop, with no electricity, would be the perfect addition to our kitchen! {check out the amazing recipes on their blog}

One of my favorite things to do in the summer is to bring treats down to the beach for a picnic. And there is nothing more vintage than the classic, wooden, picnic basket. I just found an amazing product that allows you to keep the vintage picnic basket vibe with the modern convenience of keeping your food and drinks cold. The Peterboro "Ice Master" Basket is an insulated cooler basket. How cool is that!? 

What are you favorite Summertime treats?

  3. GAH, how wonderful! That Zoku looks amazing, and I love the discovery of a real cooler inside that vintage picnic basket! Is there anything better than summer? I think not!
