To accompany my rant in the sidebar . Â . Â . summer’s not over! At least not here on the Gulf Coast. It’s still beautiful beach weather and I’m hoping to sneak off to the beach sometime after the Labor Day crowds have disappeared back to their dark, sad, beach-less caves.
There’s always a breeze down at the Gulf, so I’m not packing away the beach umbrella just yet. No pumpkins allowed around here until after the official start of fall on September 21st!
Do you remember these gorgeous flag paintings by Gigi Hackford? (HERE). Gigi is one of my favorite local Fairhope Â artists, and for my birthday . . . my husband gave me two of her paintings! An American flag and an Alabama flag! JUST WHAT I WANTED! He also organized a little get-together with dear, sweet friends and swept me off for a delicious dinner. Now . . . wasn’t that the most perfect day? And I only had to hint a tiny little bit! (Having your own blog to drop hints on works wonders! I think everyone in town was giving the poor man a hard time about my birthday!).
Here’s Gigi in her studio/gallery in downtown Fairhope.You may remember her adorable tinyÂ cottage (HERE) which I’ll soon be updating for you. Â When dear friend Rachel last visited Fairhope, she also purchased a flag painting for The Trammell House in Marietta. Now we have sister flags!
And you-know-who was up and dressed for the holiday early this morning. Lois Lane loves a good party, especially one where we cook-out barbecued ribs! Mmmm! Hope you have a fun, tasty holiday of fun as well.

Happy Labor Day to you!
