15 June 2011


The past week has been near perfect around here.
Not too busy.  Not too noisy.
Just taking things one day, one moment at a time.

A trip to a couple of the local green houses/nurseries have us enjoying a few new plants and blooms.

I am doing my best to keep my maidenhair fern going.
So far so good.
I just love it's dainty little leaves.
 Glenn had to have some pretty clover.
He checks on them every afternoon when he comes home just to make sure they are still hanging in there.
Too funny!
 There are plenty of colorful blooms from our plants of many years.

 More yarn time has been happening as I have been enjoying the absolute gorgeous weather we have been having,
while sitting in full view of the gorgeous baskets that were acquired at Julie's shop again this year.

The girls are loving the brightly colored blooms they have picked out this year to take care of.  
 And then there was a fun day today spent with sweet friends as they came over for some help with altering a thrift store find
 into a very pretty dress for a local renaissance fair.
There are leftovers in the fridge and there is nothing else on the to-do list but work on more granny squares.
It's rough but someone has to deal with all this torture.


  1. Yes, the life! All of your flowers are so pretty. And I love the transitions made on the thrift store find. They have Renaissance festivals in Charlotte, NC every year, but I've never attended. It would be fun to go all dressed up.

    Look at you, with your granny square action going on. You just can't be stopped!


  2. Sure sounds like a perfect kind of week Kar! The flowers (all of them) are so pretty and the baskets are gorgeous, love all the colors! I hope to spend some time outside soon to play in dirt as well. The dress is adorable, have fun at the fair!

  3. Oh I love all your flowers, they're all so colorful. I love the dress, the colors are perfect. Near our old house in Illinois there was a renaissance fair and believe it or not I've never gone to it :(

  4. Very pretty flowers!!! Good for you to get some crochet time in your day.

  5. What I would give to trade lives with you for 10 minutes! My June is crazy. Your flowers look lovely!

  6. Thank you SO much for all your help with the dress! It turned out beautifully! You are so talented and we were blessed to be able to spend the time with you. Thank you for taking a good chunk of time out of your day to help a friend!

  7. So much great color! Summer is here!

  8. What a wonderful time you are having. I am jealous of your weather. It was 91 tonight at 7 pm...augh..
    Your flowers are so pretty! And I just love the fern. :o)

  9. I'm jealous of all this relaxing and grannying! Your flowers, dress and squares are just the perfect colors for June. Enjoy your days.
