It's going to be Glorious

I don't think I've ever been this excited for Summer.  Little hints keep springing up all over the place - new bits of green overnight, the frogs coming out of hiding around the pond's bank, and just a tad more daylight every evening.

The girls and I decided to practice, just to make sure we have the routine down pat
when Summer finally gets here.
 Pumped up the inner tubes, laid out the towel... looking good.  Some opted for the icy water - while others... being myself, sought no greater happiness than acting lifeguard while delving into a lovely summerish book and lolling on the soft young grass.  Oh, and snapping a bit.

This routine is something I could get used to... it's going to be a simply glorious summer!


Um... is that a bundle of zippers, Kellie?

Yup - I've been sewing up a storm lately, and got all stocked up on zippers. I took my latest order of them along with me and took a picture... I know, I know.  Art.  
They're simply beautiful, don't you think? ;D

I discovered the Zipit Etsy shop awhile back while pricing zippers, and I just love it!  Jennie is simply the sweetest, and her shop's customer service is top notch.  Lightning fast shipping, and practically any and every kind and color of YKK zipper you'd ever want.  For the best value I can find.

And... just in case you're not yet convinced that you need to go stock up on these lovelies, readers of Accordion to Kellie have been provided with a special offer.

Happy zipping!


  1. Looks like lots of fun was had by all, I can't wait until it's warm enough to go in the water!
    I love Georgette Heyer books, she is one of my favorite authors! =)

  2. May I just say how blessed you are to have a swimming hole right in your own yard? ;-)

    I've heard of that book--The Masqueraders, isn't it?--sounds intriguing....

    Looks like you'll be busy "zipping" up loverly sewing projects in the near future, LOL.

    God bless,

  3. I'm extremely excited about Summer this year, too!! It's gonna be great=D

  4. P.S. That picture of Lilly in the inner tube is so cute:)

  5. Brave hearts in that cold water!! Looks like the trial run for summer went without a hitch! Inquiring minds can't wait to see what all of those zippers end up looking like in the finished product! Soon to be available in Kellie Falconer Design Etsy? The greening and warming of the landscape sure brings inspiration and hope!

  6. Today is the first time I can say its hot... but I wouldn't dare going into the water! I want to sew too!

  7. That water looks so refreshing! I've been outside in the hot sun (and humidity) so I need a way to cool off. Too bad we don't have a creek or pond where I live. I think I'd be in it all summer! :P
    Have a great day!
    p.s. I don't know if you have bad humidity where you live, but down south it can almost get unbearable! And we haven't even got to July and August yet. That's when it's really bad!

  8. Darling photos! So cute :)
