Alice and I have more laundry to do...signing off!
Thursday, May 15, 2008
Some on the windowsill (btw, so glad I can't bring myself to get rid of interesting glass bottles, even though R. teases me)...
I also got this lovely gift from my sweet baby T. for Mother's Day...he picked it out himself and it's beautiful!
And, last but not least...T.'s strawberries, which are doing really well! Must be all of the rain we've been having..

So what the heck happened to me, when did I turn into Fancy Nancy? I don't know when it happened, but somewhere along the way (in my 20's I guess?) I started to LOVE dresses & skirts! Don't get me wrong, I'm still terribly tragic when it comes to hair and makeup...but whatever.... I totally want to be the girl in this fabric...
I think she is walking to the cafe where she will have a cup of Chai, and will then stop by the Farmer's Market for some fresh flowers and a loaf of bread..oui oui, sign me up! This bag is actually one of the custom orders from my trunk show..I hate to part with it - I think I have to make one for me!
It's late - I think I'm talking crazy. Good night!
I'm so excited today because I received my BTRS swap bag, and it is THE BAG that I have been admiring on Flikr in the BTRS Swap pool! I can't believe it, it's exactly the right fabric for me - I totally adore it! AND, to top it off, it was filled with fantastic crafty goodies...one of which is a flower press for drying flowers and I can't wait to use it! Also included was a quilt square that is comprised of all of my favorite colors - I think it wants to be the front of a pillowcase one day ;) Oh, Oh..and there were awesome vintage patterns, it's like my partner knew me! One pattern is for a very June Cleaver-esque belted shirt-dress - very me!! Here's a picture of my loot...
I hope that my swap partner likes hers (picture below) as much as I do mine!

#1 - T. and I were sitting together on the couch the other day, catching up on a little Scooby Doo. Out of nowhere he looks at me, in all seriousness, and asks me this.. "Mommy, when you get old will you have arm dangle?" Of course I answered that I already do, sort of, and I assume that I will one day have "arm dangle." He said "I won't and Daddy won't because only women have arm dangle." Interesting fact from an almost 5 year old, don't you think?
#2 - I was doing the laundry on Sunday afternoon, when I spotted something about an inch long and black in the tub of the washer. I reach down, fully expecting lint or something like that but to my surprise it was a caterpillar! Yes, we drowned a caterpillar....and when I say we, I mean T. Apparently while collecting them the other day he decided that he would stick one in his pocket...and then forget about it. Nice huh? I will never reach into pockets without wondering what kind of critter may be living in there again. The caterpillar got back at us...the washer broke Sunday night.

I've been busily trying to squeeze in crafting for the Strawberry Street Festival next weekend...thank goodness I have this weekend left to cram! I've finished half of the scrabble pendants, and not nearly enough flower pins. Looks like I'll be making flowers all week long! The scrabble tile pendants turned out super cute, they would make great birthday party favors or even gifts for girls...I wore my "K" pendant to work today and had lot's of people comment, so hopefully that's a good sign. We shall see!! Here is a not so great picture of a few of the pendants...
..and here is a "Fan Flower" - I'll have VT & UVA with me at the show, and of course regular Flower Pins as well....
Ok, got to finish bathing the child...
