Memories of Summer




Memories of those halcyon days,
are fading fast.



Like footprints on the beach
scattered by the wind...




Carefree days, golden days,



Sand, sun and soft summer breezes.



Blue skies with little white clouds drifting by...
Bathing suits, wet towels and laughter.



Collecting shells...



Children's voices...
Hot dogs and ice cream...
More laughter.






Swim, read, relax...




Freedom to do what you want...

When you want.


Building castles in the sand...


and building them in the sky....


Dreaming. Snoozing.



Feeling alive,
Living
Life



Changing the world into miniature...
One thing at a time


Printable Miniature Book Cover for everyone.

you have made a very relaxed scene with your minis. Very nice attention to detail, yet not cluttered. *cheers* -Ron

Lize said...

Thank you for leaving nice comments! I know it is UNBELIEVABLE to be grateful for something so insignificant... but we had RAIN... real rain.. the first rain in a very very long time! I had to wait until the skies cleared before I could take the photos for my post. It remained cloudy for 4 days! It rained only once, but it was real water!!! And a lot of water! The desert is going to look splendid in another week or two. And at last it is cooling down... The evenings are now becoming very pleasant.

I get so annoyed sometimes with Google! (Most times I am very happy though!), but today Google sent some of my messages to 'comment heaven'! Now there is NO human error (as in my fault) this time, because half of them appeared in my comment box, but some fell through the hole! So if you left a message and it is not published, I am so sorry, but we can blame Google!!!

The Peak of Chic said...

Amazing! I wish that I were a wee little person who could enjoy that chic tent!

Linda Carswell said...

It is a lovely little scene, so pleasant!....and many thanks for the book cover, I shall look forward to making it!

Sans said...

Lize, you made a really wonderful tent, I love how you have done the structure. I built one too (a carpet/ souvenir shop for a broke Maharajah) but I couldn't get the shape of the tent like you did.

I am so amazed that you are doing all this in KSA. I have been to Dubai & Abu Dabi and it is so scathingly hot and I am sure, there were 0 craft shop. That's why your work is all the more incredible!

Artisan of Ocala said...

I was supposed to go to Dubai to build some models there. I wonder what access you have to miniature & crafts shops over in that area.

Mimi said...

Gorgeous! Wish it were warm enough here to sit at a beach....maybe in another 6 months!

Mid-Atlantic Martha said...

Oese said...

Your summer scene is so beautiful!! It takes me to times that are gone, long summers, holiday cottages by the beach. Thankyou for the book printie too!

ArchitectDesign™ said...

you've captured a day at the beach so perfectly - from teh shells down to the itty bitty cokes!!! Thank you so much for warming me up with this scene on this cold winters day here in washington dc!

they give desire to take a vacation

Norma said...

How fabulous, and original! :) Having come here via your photography blog I can see how come the photographs of this are so gorgeous - most of us struggle so to produce blog photos of our mini projects that show just a hint of how it looks in 'reality' - how wonderful that we can enjoy yours in 'all their glory' :)

Irene said...

A-ma-zing! Your sense of style, your imagination, your patience. Thank you.
