Nothing tastes better on a hot summer day at the beach than ice cream, so I decided I wanted to participate in Suzy's Ice Cream Social. Visit her blog Kitchen Bouquet to see who else is participating, I just know there's going to be some amazing recipes!
Now I eat a lot of ice cream, but the only time I've made it in recent years is when I visit my cousin's farm in Douglas, Georgia. To tell the truth, I don't really make the ice cream, my cousin Doris does that, but I'm always willin' to help eat it. (Don't you just want to say, "Well, bless her heart for being so helpful?)
I decided instead to post some vintage pictures, because you know I love vintage pictures. These are all from the Library of Congress and I hope you enjoy them while your munching on your ice cream.
This lithograph advertising our favorite summer treat was created and published by Currier & Ives in 1879. Two winged cherubs, wearing fancy hats, and eating a very large dish of ice cream, with very large flowers on floor.
I hope you all enjoy visiting the other posts and if you need help eating all that ice cream, let me know!
I love the beach and everything that goes with it! I love the waves lapping at my feet. I love the feel of the sand between my toes. I love the roar of the Pacific and the gentle waves of the Gulf of Mexico in Florida. Let's talk about beaches around the world, bonfires, building sandcastles, swaying palm trees, flamingos, clambakes, sunrises and sunsets. If it's tropical, it fits this blog!
