It may seem like autumn is inching closer as kids go back to school and the September issues start to appear on store shelves, but let's be honest. It's still 93° outside, and we'd all rather be hanging out by the pool. So I couldn't resist sneaking in just one more summer-y download for your desktop and phone.

And if you'd like to see how this watercolor came together, click on over to our HGTV Live Facebook page this afternoon. I'll be painting this design for the second installment of Zens-day Wednesday–your chance to zone out for a few minutes while watching something crafty and listening to some tunes. See you there!
