I do plan on doing a good amount of this!
And this! I bet you love these illustrations as much as I do. Patchwork quilts, red dresses with white trim. White dresses with red trim. Botanical prints on the walls.
I picked my pumpkin. It is almost September and it COULD freeze at night, right? It's far from freezing right now. Whew. My classroom was unbearable four of the last five days. Yesterday was cooler and Mrs. M was MUCH happier.
Our Australian houseguest left a bouquet of mums. Pretty!
This is the quilt my great granny made in 1968, when she was 85 years old. I have a square she gave me that I've saved all these years, so I shall make a pillow to go with it. I'm so glad my mama boxed it up and mailed it to me.
We had five little girls over this morning. When I sit on the toadstool in the Wendy house, I can think of many ways to make it cozy. Bunting. Laminated pictures of the grands to hang on the woodsy walls. Tiny curtains. Dishes on little shelves. We'll see.
And the lavender and rosemary are still looking lively. Bill filled all the bird feeders. Even though I have a fat bag of papers to grade, I'm home and home is the very best place to be.
