Me at 10 or 11.


Came across these old Polaroids while sorting through some boxes.
They feel kinda arty to me now.

Look what I won!

I won this fabulous print at a Friends of the Farms event raffle! It's by Joe's his website. I love it. It came framed by Roby King and it's already hanging in my kitchen. I never win anything...feeling so lucky!

An afternoon in the garden...

Finally got my tomatoes in the ground....a little late. No actually, a lot late, but I'm hoping for a long hot summer.  Re-potted a few things and did lots of weeding too!  More tomorrow, but now I'm tired and filthy...need a shower and bed!

A magazine day!

My favorite time of the month....when next month's magazines start arriving!

PB & B & H!

I've been trying to be better about taking my lunch to work...this sandwich makes it easy. Peanut butter, banana and honey on wheat! The only problem is that I usually eat it as a snack by 10 a.m.

Cutest tissue box award!

I love this new quilt tissue box design from Kleenex and I could only find one on the shelf!

A friend sends this magazine to me from England and this latest issue arrived in my mailbox yesterday! I immediately sat down with a cup of tea and went cover to cover...a great transition into my weekend. If you get a chance, I think Barnes & Noble carries Selvedge.  It's a bit pricey, but pick it up and peak at it in the's just fabulous! Enjoy your Saturday!  The sun is shining here...YES!

Mother's Day

The first calla lily and the first poppy opened yesterday for Mother's Day! Hope all you moms had a fabulous day! (That's 10 days earlier than last year for the poppy so says the blog post from 5-23-11.)

Ranunculus from my garden...

I haven't had much time for gardening, but found these coming up among the weeds.
Love this flower!

Happy Birthday to my wonderful daughter....all grown up! xo
This pic is from her 3rd b'day. Can't believe how fast time has flown by.
I'm no longer the mother of minor children, but hopefully still needed as their mother!

Happy May Day!

Yikes, I've had no time to blog!  Just wanted to say "Happy May Day!"  I have a crazy-busy month coming up, hoping to have time to share some of it with you. I hope it feels like spring wherever you looks like spring here, but outside it's still chilly.  xo  (image via the LATimes)
