Weekend Montage

Hello Everyone,

I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend!  I certainly did and I will take you through a few highlights.

If you live in New England you are probably familiar with Tanglewood in the Berkshires.  It is a fabulous venue for you to go and listen to musical concerts of all kinds.  I have always wanted to go there and have never been... even though it is only about 1 hour and 10 minutes from my home.  I have live in New England since 1987, so I thought it was high time.

We were able to get tickets to see Train, Andy Grammer, and Mat Kearney.  My hubby, son, and I all went on a unbelievably gorgeous day!!

When we arrived we could not believe the grounds... just phenomenal.  I loved this oversized trumpet decorated so festively.

The other side.

Here is another, musical notes just spilling out!  Very cool and creative.

While we were waiting for the concert to begin we had to have some fresh made ice cream.  I had 2 scoops, the top was Dirty Chocolate, the bottom was Salted Caramel.   The ice cream was Mmmmmmm... good!  I LOVED the Salted Caramel... OH MY!

Because this was an open amphitheater, there were tons of places to sit on the lawn and people came prepared with picnics, quilts, and chairs.  We actually sat in the amphitheater towards the back.  

The sound was awesome as this was built for the Boston Symphony Orchestra.  We had some time in between sets, so my son and I took this photo.

I was able to get this shot of Pat Monahan when Train came on.... however, I must confess that this was  from the screen overhead and not a zoom to the stage.

Anyway, we had a great time!

Then this weekend I spent some time packing orders from my BIG Labor Day sale and I wanted to show you a couple of combinations from two different customers that just struck me as gorgeous, and similar in many ways.

Loved the Kaffe's she chose.

Love the batiks that this customer chose.

Then to top off the Labor Day weekend, we grilled and I am continuing to make a fresh summer tomato salad and corn on the cob to accompany our meals.  I refuse to give these up until they are absolutely not delicious any longer.  I will miss them during the winter!

All I can say is YUM!

So that was a little glimpse into my weekend, how was yours?

Oh, don't forget to enter my giveaway here...

Until Next Time....

I must say, Train was the best concert I've ever seen. Will surely see them again.

One of my favorite places in the world; my husband and I used to go frequently to hear the symphony and with a bottle of wine and a picnic, heaven!

Salted caramel is my favorite ice cream and now I make it at home. Had better get back on the treadmill or switch to nonfat yogurt:-)

Your food looks delicious, too! All in all, a fabulous weekend you'll probably want to repeat every summer, now that you've been there.

Oooh -- those batiks are glorious!

What a treat to see the decorations at Tanglewood.

Your salad looks absolutely delicious.
