Father's Day

I love this picture of my Dad with his girls.
This was one of our many car trips.....before DVDs , cellular phones and blackberries......just good old fashion "eye spy" , loud singing and stopping along the way to enjoy the view.
Miss you Dad!!

Special note to my husband........thanks for being such a wonderful Father to our daughter. She is going to treasure your special relationship through out her lifetime.

Happy Father's Day!!!!

Friday Flashback

Where does time go..........................?

It seems like yesterday when I met these three little girls. They were our neighbors (and became fast friends) the first time we lived in this beautiful little town. Both familes moved away....we moved they are visiting and it is such a joy to watch my little one playing with them. They are growing up to be such lovely , nice young ladies.

Lucky Girl!!

Who is the lucky girl..........?


Look what arrived on my porch today from Simply Stated Antiques........Anne Marri Soy Candles. I won the blog drawing last week and they arrived today to fill my home with that a word? I have to say the fudgesicle is my favorite. I want to eat it. They are all wonderful and made my day!!

I also was blessed to receive this beautiful necklace from Rita. This was one of my Pay it Forward gifts. I had not met Rita before getting this lovely charm and I treasure it. How thoughtful of you to make such a special gift....thank you!!

Thank you Rita and Rebecca I am a very lucky girl!!

The Bird!!

Okay, a few of you know I am not a huge fan of birds. I know that is a bold statement...."how can you not like birds?" Well, I don't mind looking at them in zoos, cute little vintage cages, books or from a distance......... just not flying around my head . You people that feed seagulls and pigeons..........I think you are crazy.

This little guy was hanging out in our house today. He flew in while I was snoozing on the back patio. I didn't want to freak Sarah out by being hysterical so I very calmly told my husband to handle the situation. The little guy was pretty cute and harmless but I was VERY THRILLED when he was back outside.

Friday Flashback

This is one of my favorite pictures of Sarah.
She was waking up from a nap and making such silly, sleepy faces.
Today we are having a very lazy morning and it such a blessing to have the time
to still make silly and sleepy faces together.

She has been calling me "sweetie" funny.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Market in the Garden

Sarah's Buddy.....performing "This little piggywent to market"
Lorie, Julie and Sandra Lee

Jessi and Joy
I felt so blessed to be a small part of The Sandcastle Siren's event this weekend. Next year I really want to participate in all of the art classes too. I was fortunate (thanks Deb) to be a vendor on Sunday. I got to hang out and sell some tutu's with such talented artists.......I came home so inspired. I am very lucky to have a fabulous Mom that flew over (from Arizona)on short notice so I could do my "tutuing" this weekend. Thanks Mom!!....I also had some fun visitors sporting their Noggin Toppers....Thanks Colleen!!

The first picture is the entrance in to Jane's home that was transformed into a spectacular marketplace. All of you made me feel so welcome...I have stalked many of your blogs and it was so fun to meet you in real life.

Friday Flashback

I am not one to promote my Birthday (today)but when I came across this picture I thought it was a perfect Friday Flashback. I think I was 4 when this nice clown came to celebrate the big day..... (some clowns are scary but she looks nice) .
Mom did a good job on my hair.......she is coming to town today maybe she can get the syrup out of Sarah's?
I am embracing this Birthday......not much I can do about NOT having them. Of course when Sarah asks my age I am 29. My Mom was 29 for 7 years now I can never figure out how old she is......?

Have a great weekend!!
