Use it up

Use it up, wear it out,
make it do, or do without

  1. I'm spending the day with one of my favouritest [my word] people.

    It's also the birthday of one of my most special friends - and although I can't be with her I'm excited for her to receive lots of special surprises.

    The sun is shining and giggles are on the menu.

    Happiest of happy days to you Lovely Sass,

  2. Was augustus een beetje kwijtgeraakt maar gelukkig heb ik haar weer teruggevonden! September mag nog heel even wachten. Fijne week

  3. We genieten er beslist nog van Saskia en hopelijk gaan we ook van September genieten. Positief denken.
    Lieve groeten van Riet

  4. Lieve Saskia,

    En nu maar hopen dat de laatste paar dagen van augustus mooie dagen worden :-)!!

    Een gezellige nieuwe week!

    Liefs van Madelief x

  5. It's a beautiful day here. The nasty storm that hit the Eastern Shore of the US left us in a stalled beautiful weather system on this side of the mountains. Hopefully, those hit by that storm can get back to normal soon.

  6. Yep!!...alweer bijna september........tja meis dan gaan we de herfst weer in.......geniet...liefs van mij...xxx...xxx...xxx....

  7. Ga ik zeker doen. We rollen zo de nazomer in. Hoor net dat de laatste dagen van deze week warmer worden. Nou dan komt het toch helemaal goed.
    warme groet,

  8. Voorlopig lijkt het nog frisjes te worden deze laatste augustusdagen, maar ben ervan overtuigd dat september héérlijk gaat worden ;)) Op naar een mooie Indian summer... hoop ik!

  9. Hello Dear,
    on the 31th of August it's my mothers birthday!°
    So we celebrate the last day of August and enjoy it!!!
    Have fun :)

  10. Hi Saskia, I am really enjoying these last days and hope there will be more warm days in September. I'm looking forward to Autumn though, such a lovely season. Have a wonderful new week!!!

    Love, Kristin

  11. The day is beautiful but in homes without A/C it is miserable. Being in A/C all the time has made us dependent on it. Hope your week is going great.

  12. Wat vliegt de tijd. Ik hoop op een warme septembermaand. Fijne week, lieve groet

  13. loving the last few minutes of august, my friend.


  14. Gho ja is het alweer bijna september, wat vliegt z'n jaar om hè, nu maar hopen dat het weer ook wat beter word, fijne week lieve groetjes Esther.

  15. Loving that last of summer days here.Its been gorgeous, our nights have been divine. lol.On my way to the beach one last time over Labor Day holiday here in the States.Hoping to send off summer with alot of fun and nice memories.

    Have a great Tuesday ahead Saskia!

  16. You reminded me that August is ending and we can savor each of these days. Today I had lunch with writer friends, and yesterday we celebrated my husband's birthday with our sons. These are wonderful moments. Terra

  17. I adore August and am definitely using every single day to its fullest and beyond. Happy ending to you...

  18. Hi Saskia,
    Lovely pic! I love daisies.
    Have a lovely week.

  19. Lovely flower...simplicity. But, oh, not liking the reminder that summer is passing by. But...to keep it positive, I must relish each day of warmth and sunshine and be grateful for them and make wonderful memories during the remaining summer days.

  20. Really can't believe we are on the last few days of August. It has been a fun summer but really went by so fast.
    But I must say that I love love fall time.

  21. Dat augustus alweer op z'n eindje loopt...

  22. Tijd vliegt!

    We krijgen nog een paar mooie dagen hoorde ik bij het nieuws!!

    Daar gaan we dan nog eens extra van genieten!!

    Fijne week.

    Groetjes Thea ♥

  25. Ik denk nog vaak op het heerlijke tijd in SChewveningen and Den Haag Saskia!Het weer hier is much like herfst, koud en klaar s'morgens, maar warm de namiddag.

  32. Hi Saskia!
    I was just thinking the same thoughts as Martina... I don't want to give up my summer capris, flowing ~ breezy tops and bare feet!
    Well, August was quite a month here. I'm glad it's ending quietly!
    I am using up every minute *
    Blessings and JOY to you dear ♥

    Fijne avond verder,
    liefs Ester

  37. Ooooh!! He's handsome!! :) :) :)
    I love the imagery and art of the halcyon days of the 50's. That's the time I'd go back to. It seems so wonderful and simple. Granted, I'd teach the women to stand up for themselves!!! But other than that, a malt and a movie for a nickle sound good to me. :)
    Blessings, my friend! :)

  38. oh, love that!!!! Where did this summer go????

    Sending hugs and love

  39. Dear friend Saskia, I received my gifts today and I'm very happy. Everything is so beautiful and delicate. I'll write a post about them on my blog. Thank you so much, you are very kind.
    Wish you a wonderful day.

  40. Oh I shall commit this clever little saying to memory! i love it!
    So nice to pop by here and see how you are and what you've been doing!
    I'm going to read your posts this morning with my first cup of coffee!

    Ciao Bella!


  41. Hallo Saskia,
    September begint in ieder geval goed, heerlijk weer, helder licht, frisse kruidige geuren, dat is voor mij nazomeren en dat is een heerlijke tijd! Dus geniet als je kan van elk moment dat je buiten kan zijn. En binnen gezellig weer een kaarsje aan, dat is ook sfeer!
    Gezellig dat flesje van de SS met een bloemetje, bij mij staan ze nog vol in de badkamer, ze zijn zo leuk!
    Fijn weekend


Warm Winter Wishes
