Yes, today is the second full day of summer in Seattle!  In Seattle, we have to be creative about convincing ourselves that it really is Summer.  Wear bright, summer colors {of polar fleece or rain gear}, fix summery drinks {Arnold Palmers are delicious served hot – with vodka} and surround yourself with fun, summery accessories!!  We love all the new letterpress coasters that just arrived from Haute Papier.  Despite the fancy {French} name they are happily affordable, fun to use, practical, make great hostess gifts AND remind us of summer!
