He Got Married

Mr. Gnome found a wife. Three purchased gnomes is quite enough for spring. I'll give myself permission to buy more gnomes when school is out for the summer.

Blossoms are everywhere! I took this picture as we were driving away from the grocery store.

This beauty is in Kelli's front yard.

Oh, I wish they lasted longer!

This one is in Kelli's backyard.

Miss Bug chose a new dolly!

Wilbur strikes a pose.

Here is my answer to the heat in my classroom. I figure if my feet are cool, I might be, too. Sorry about the wayward toes.
I cut a big chunk from my left pointer finger today when I was slicing something. I really need to be careful with knives. Anyway, I have a large bandage on it and I am having a hard time typing. OH NO!
I hope you have a springlike weekend, a nap or two, a pear, a tall glass of something sweet, a chance to make something and read something. I wanted to make an i-cord lanyard for my school ID, but now with a sore finger . . . I may try it anyway.
Thank you for stopping by and saying hello.

Congratulations on Mr. Gnome's nuptials! :) I love your orange sandals. Are they as comfy as they look? Orange is my most recent favorite color.

Oh the beautiful blossoms. Ours are fading a bit, so it is extra nice to see all the blooming again.

Wow I love wilbur the cat, he's so cuddly and love your sandals too bet they are cool. Gnomes I have never warmed to, but yours do look like an old married couple!

I am looking forward to the adventures of the Gnome Family. You will probably need Mary Poppins to attend to all the antics of the Gnome children! And what sweet little toes you have ~ mine do not like to be in sandals any more but prefer to hide inside socks. Perhaps they are hoping to be painted red. I must look into that ~ I don't think I have ever painted my toenails before. That would be a fun way to start summer this year!! xo Kari


Ok, I must confess... I find knomes a little bit creepy. I know a lot of peeps love them though. Love the picture of your cat. and such cute sandles. Have a great day!

Look at those blossoms! Is there anything so pretty and sweet smelling?

Love the sandals and toes. I have mine painted the same color. I wonder if we are twins, separated at birth, after all?

Hoping your finger heals soon.

Hi PomPom, sorry to hear about your finger. Glad you found some good company for your lovely Mr.Gnome! xxx

Hello! I'm sorry for your finger. We had some wonderful herbal iced tea today (sleepy time, yum!) and have recently discovered agave nectar, which can be used in the place of honey. I don't think there's any special virtue to it, but it is variety!

Beautiful time for blossom.

Kerri said...

I LOVE all the blossom! Gorgeous! And I have cut my fingers three times in the last two days with knives. I wish I wasn't such a butter fingers!
