We're having temperatures in the upper 90s these days, so an afternoon in the water is a good way for a young lady to cool down.  Since I'm a country girl, I go swimming in the creek instead of a pool.  I have a new swimsuit,

and because the water is so fresh and cold, my teeth begin to chatter, and I have to come out to warm up now and then, wrapping up in my terry cloth swimsuit cover-up.


Of course swimming always makes me hungry and I look forward to having a backyard cookout with my family and a few friends.  I picked my newest sundress to wear for this.

Mama Charlotte used to swim in the creek, but she says now she wouldn't be caught dead in a swimsuit.  Do you swim?

  1. Isabelle is really getting a smashing wardrobe. So sweet. Cappy and I took a morning walk to the creek & we did a bit of wading. Cappy prefers to skinny dip and I spent time looking for hagstones. NO WAY will you see me in swimsuit! It is sure mighty hot here too.

  2. What a lucky BabyDoll Isabelle is. You've certainly given her a fine wardrobe and activities to keep her entertained.
    I'm there with you on swimming. I enjoyed it in my youth, but now-a-days it'd be shorts and a tee-shirt because swimsuits are not a part of my wardrobe, lol
    Fun post. It's always a pleasure to read your stories and see your latest creations.

  3. Now isn't sweet Isabelle the perfect little model for your sewing creations! I'll bet that gorgeous new red sundress is her favorite. As for swimming, it's so hot these days, if I were Isabelle, I would be tempted to go skinny dipping.

  4. The cutest thing ever! I love this, and I would no long be wearing a swimsuit as I would probably scare everyone in sight. :)

  5. These are so sweet! I especially love the sundress. I swim a little, but not much. Mostly in the pool in our fenced back yard. :)

  11. Miss Isabelle is having a fun summer in a smashing wardrobe! Sun dresses are soooo comfortable. I have a bathing suit but haven't worn it in many years. (I don't think it fits!) I love cooling off in the water, but hated to get splashed in the face or water in my ears!

  12. Isabelle is the most popular gal around with all those pretty clothes she gets.. I used to swim in the creek when I was small which happens to be just behind my house now but other than wading when the kids come I can't say I've went swimming in years.. Hugs, xo
