Happy Labor Day


For most Americans nothing signifies the end of summer more than Labor Day which we are celebrating this weekend. It's the last three-day weekend of the summer, a lot of children go back to school the day after Labor Day, and most women put their white shoes away.

So I chose to honor the working man with my "end of summer" arch for the challenge at Gothic Arches this week.
By the way, the arch challenge is changing sites, so check out the link above to see how to register for the new one.

Very appropriate, Louise, and very nice arch art, too.

Very clever "take" on the theme Louise! Isn't that the truth...away go the white shoes! Even though the official end of summer hasn't arrived, Labour Day still seems like a turning point.
