A Goodbye to Summer

Depending upon what part of the country you live in, the nights are getting cooler and in just a few more weeks there will be a crispness to the air.  The start of football season is typically when folks start putting away their summer things to be replaced with warmer clothes and accessories.  Retiring my beach bags for the winter got me thinking about those old straw beach bags my mother used to carry with the large flowers and beads during the long hot summers...

So with that, a bit of nostalgia with some vintage straw bags and a goodbye to summer:
