With school out for summer, we wanted to give a small reminder of the simple joys that summer can bring: the imagination and joy that's had in the backyard on a warm afternoon. Although summer can feel quite commercial at times, Angel Eastman reminds us that all you need to have fun is a rocky patch, a few popsicle sticks and a little creativity. Can you tell who lives here?

Angel wanted to make sure that even the smallest of creatures had a home — including Fairies! We're pretty sure that if we were a fairy, this would be a great place to call home! Have you seen those modern floating stairs? It's quite the posh pad if we don't say so ourselves.

So next time you're fretting about your plans working out due to rain or not being able to take your kids to the latest exhibit or water park, remember all we really all need at heart is a small patch of dirt and nowhere to be.

Thanks Angel!
