Mags from fraise lachrymose sent me a sweet little treat! She made a lovely cozy, didn't she? And she sent me an autographed copy of Babette Cole's Princess Smarty Pants Breaks the Rules! LOVE!
Darling Jody at Gumbo Lily sent me this peach. Isn't she cute?
This old book also came in the mail. Prayers for every day. Elizabeth Goudge. Nice.
The months, one by one, again. Thank you, Gladys Taber.
Little flowers from my garden!
Do you like this little brown jug? I have no idea how the corn whiskey tasted (sour face) but the jug is a keeper!
Another quote on the kitchen white board. A good one, yes?
Jeff is very angry at the magpies that swooped in recently. They ate a few of his tomatoes. I went right out to buy Joe the Scarecrow and Jeff proceeded to protect his crop. Do you think it'll work?
Look at all my sister-in-law's birds! Aren't they sweet? She had one bird per table at her daughter's wedding and now they are all waiting to go back to various perches throughout her house.
Here is my mom's overflowing pot of pretty. The flowers in the northwest were so lush and big.
It's Friday and Fridays are good, aren't they? I am going to draw a name for my little giveaway today. I'd do it right now but I'm all nice and comfy (and a bit sleepy from getting up way too early) so I'll post it on the sidebar later.
I have a question that some of you might have the answer to. What's the big deal about IKEA? Kelli and I went to the new store in Denver last night. They had parking attendants directing traffic. People appear to be crazy about IKEA. We had Millie Rose with us and trying to steer the shopping cart and baby through the crowds wasn't fun. We saw all the furniture because we were looking for drawer pulls, but what else do they sell at IKEA and why is everyone going so bonkers over it? Please enlighten me.
I think I'll iron today. Maybe I'll vacuum and mop the family room. I love the smell of lemon cleaner. Maybe I'll draw and color. I'll get the giveaway box ready. Plan instruction for the entire school year (just kidding). Go back to bed and take a little nap. What are you going to do?
