SOS girls

Yesterday I was faced with a harsh reality that Summer is pretty much over. The good thing is that it doesn't mean the Shades of Summer has to end... Keep them moving darlings and better yet if you have some yellow sunglasses from last year laying around in a cardboard box--open em up & have fun then send them on their way!
Every time I open a Shades of Summer email it makes me smile. Seeing my blog readers' faces, where you're from & a little peek into your life... is quite cool! I know we feel so comfortable behind the camera but it's so important to get photos of us too, even if it is while wearing some funky glasses. ;)
Thanks for playing along, my SOS girls!
Leave a comment with a shout out of where you ladies are from in the photo ... I know there are some in Arizona, Illinois, California, Texas & even Finland...

I'm from Ohio, in a suburb of Columbus (blond hair,red shirt in front of my sweet autumn clematis-top group, second row, first pic). Right before I mailed my shades out to the next person, my two daughters took photos of each other in the pink shades. :) Fun! :) Thanks, Liz

I would LOVE to get in on the action!! Is it too late??? My 3-year-old loves to wear mommy's "sun-gasses" around. Would love to take a pic of her in some of those funky shades! :)

So fun! I'm from Southern Illinois! Bottom set, top row, 4th pic in green shirt with the tree in background. So fun to see everybody wearing the glasses!!!
You Rock, Liz!

You should send them down to us in Australia now. We're just heading into summer in a few months it could be sos all year round!

This was so FUN!
2nd grouping of photos far right on the top row.
We had just moved to a small town outside of Little Rock AR when the box arrived. Thanks for letting me play along.

Cool Pix! Just a tip, maybe next time they should head North first where summer doesnt last long, whereas in the South it always look like summer. Maybe next time I'll get in on the fun!

Amy said...

Everyone looks so cute and fun! I wish I had signed up to participate! oh well, maybe next year, right?

Gail C said...

tahnie said...

Ms. Cheryl said...

I feel better knowing I'm not the only one still expecting the glasses to arrive. These pics are so cool. Thanks

Suzzi said...

Whew! I feel even better knowing that some are still waiting.

Sincerely,
A patiently waiting Michigander.

It would be cool to have a snowman pic of glasses!

I'm from a town in Northeastern Pennsylvania.

I had so much fun with the glasses. I am the photo in the top right of the first grouping.

I learned a new photoshop technique in the process!

I mailed them out to Perkasie, PA this week.

Have fun girls!

Great pictures! I am still waiting, patiently, in Arizona to receive the box of glasses & complete my part of the SoS! I cannot wait to have some fun (like everyone else looks to be having) Woo Hoo!

Emily Frame said...

Jingle said...

These are so cute!!! I hope the box I basically started (I was the first one on the list) gets back to you, Liz, 'cause I totally want to see what you do with the hard copies!

iamahoneybee said...

Looks Great!

Liz said...

Hey Liz!

This is Liz from the Bay Area in Northern California. I'm the chick with the polka dot headband and cupcake drink (bottom group, 2nd one from the top left).

Thanks again for letting me join in. SOS2 was a lot of fun. I'm just glad that it took less than 25pictures this time to get the right one instead of 200 plus, ha ha!:)

Shaun said...

I am sorry that for both summers of SOS girls I was not included. Oh well.

Stacy Milford said...

still waiting for my shades to arrive...great photos girls!

Amy said...

patiently waiting for pink mail here in pennsylvania :) please pass them on....

Rebekah Williams said...

Love all the cookey (how do you spell that?) photos!

Looking forward to my pink shades arriving in the mail. Such is life when your last name's at the end of the alphabet! :)

justynapalasiewicz said...

This was SO fun! I thought it was cool to see where these shades had been before me. As I opened the box, I could see the various address labels--layer by layer. So awesome!

Anyway, I'm in the second set, first photo. The girl with the pink hair.

Thanks for letting me be a part of this!!!

Justyna

PS. I totally agree with the girl from Australia. By sending the shades to the southern hemisphere for half the year, summer really *could* be all year round!!

Marjo said...

Wow, Liz, never imagined my face showing up on your blog but so happy to see it there! :) So this is a shout out from Finland - I'm still absolutely thrilled to be a part of this all despite the fact that Finland is thousands of miles away from the US. The power of the Internet, eh?

Lots of sunshine and sparkles to all other SOS girls!

Love,
Marjo
