Enter the Dog Days of Summer

The Dog Days of Summer refers to that brutal period between July 3 and August 11 when the Summer is the hottest and most sultry. This period was named for a strong showing of Orion’s dog Sirius in the evening and morning sky.

Sirius rises late in the dark, liquid sky
On summer nights, star of stars,
Orion’s Dog they call it, brightest
Of all, but an evil portent, bringing heat
And fevers to suffering humanity.
~ Illiad

Early Summer Challenge Results

So, we had two participants who just blew us away* with their Summer Challenge entries. We shouldn’t have to choose just one so they both received Hammocks!
*This isn’t to say that we don’t appreciate all participants.

Thank you!
DownWithFun – our new UK/Éire ambassador, and
MeganMiriStycyk – The creative Canuck who stole our hearts!

color archives

We talk a lot about color around here. We admire rich hues in our homes and clothing, derive energy daily from our ‘faucethead yellow‘ and know that the wrong color can make or break a project. More than anything, though, we know color tells a story. So, imagine our delight when we discovered that one of our favorite tumblrs has been telling color stories throughout its entire existence. Kudos, That Kind Of Woman. Those archives are impeccable. Very well done.
