Tropic Thunder, My Way

as summer nears it's end 
(thankfully, as we are suffering from hideous heat here in Texas),
 my thoughts take me away to the cool blue waters....
like here

all inspired by this lovely illustration from
Danish artist Olaf Hajek

the stress-relieving crystal sparkling waters

a little hidden bungalow

with giant fronds from the local growths

relaxing in the outdoor spa
from the lovely blog Seaside Style
please go on over to meet Linda

and we get dressed for a lunch with all our friends who have gathered

simple, but splendidly opulent,  centerpiece made of fresh fruits & vegetables
with flowers tucked in...

lovely tropical-inspired bedroom
soft surroundings

& finally, an outfit of our dreams....

HPS everyone....
don't forget to click over to the Pink Saturday site to
visit the other gals participating...icon at the very bottom.....

"Develop a cause for your life.
Whatever it is, dedicate yourself to it daily."

 Coming September 6th, a new party debuting here,

  1. A lovely pink post and a refreshing one, too. I lingered a while at the beautiful beach scene...what gorgeous sand and water....

  2. Thank you for an adventurous and cooling post.

  3. Beautiful as always and that last concoction took my breath away, fabulous as always!!

  4. Hi Marsha! This is all so beautiful. I love that clear blue water...ooooh, I want to go there! And that bungalow wouldn't be so bad either :) And a little wise quote at the end...perfect! Have a lovely day, sweet Marsha!

    Love, Kristin

  5. Oh Marsha,

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    Renee and Angela

  6. Hello, I had to laugh when I saw your is the picture i use for my blog button! How bet some people thought when they clicked it was me...Too funny...Anyway, lovely post...Pinkim from TrulySimplyPink

  7. Dearest Marsha,

    Your visions here are mine as well; that sparkling blue pool of water has been my source of inspiration all summer long,and I don't even SWIM! But the color has opened up new views of life for me and it has been a splendid summer, in spite of that heat DOME that came over us! I start school on Wednesday.

    Your comment really touched me. I don't know what is in store, but I do know that I have something inside of me that needs to be expressed, but like us ALL, I need to work at scratching at the surface to find it, and then WORK ON IT. Poetry is what I am studying at the moment and trying to incorporate that into my daily life. Thank you once again for reaffirming this with your wonderful response. I SEND YOU MUCH LOVE AND WISHES for a GREAT SEND OFF in September with all the ladies!!! Anita

  8. Happy pink day! Lovely images. Have a great weekend.

  11. I feel peaceful listening to the Fields of Gold by Eva Cassidy. I don't usually like re-makes, but i might like this even better than Sting's original!


Thank you so much for your wonderful comments, each of them mean so much to me. After all, the interaction is the reason we blog. xx's
