"What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness."
~ John Steinbeck ~


Summer begins its wind down in August...last days of summer seem precious as we know that Fall and Winter are ahead, when sunshine starts to be less frequent and daylight grows short.  I have always loved the end of summer...August is like Sunday is to a week.  Like a Monday, it holds the last bastion of that free-spirited feeling.  Again I am reminded that life is short and our best days are the one we are in right now!  Grateful for each matter how crazy the world around us is so easy to forget the effervescent feelings of summer when we head into fall and winter.

Growing up in Oklahoma...fall was usually just as warm as summer and it took quite awhile for cooler weather to make an here on the Oregon Coast...heat never really makes an appearance, so it just feels lovely and mild...but I am never far from the memory of HOT!  So for those of you still in the HEAT of it...I wish for you cool breezes and whispering chilly winds. 

For the shoppe, August also brings out our Back-to-School Supplies gathering time!  We always like to collect school supplies through the Fall that we can give to our local teachers to supplement the amazing work they do with our kiddos!  Feel free to stop by the shoppe after you pick up a few extra school supplies and drop them in our basket!!  I know I've told you before but I LOVE back-to-school time!! Freshly sharpened pencils, new crayons, paper of all kinds, reading, writing and even arithmetic...such great memories for me of the back-to-school season...

This month we will be sending our coffee & tea blessings to the Boys & Girls Club as they wrap up their summer programs and begin to get their fall, back-to-school vibe going! We are very fortunate to have such a great club in our town so we want to help when we can!!

As we do each month our HOPE jar will go to the fight against Human Trafficking...

this is the jar we always send to the fight because we believe this should NOT happen anywhere and definitely not in our backyard!! 

Summer will end soon enough, and life in slavery is NOT how it should be lived in any season...

We have some fun times planned for you in August, so when you are not out grabbing the last days of summer, come in and craft or cook with us!! 

here's what's coming up at the shoppe...
