what do you think???
Should I think about opening a studio for kitty glamour photos???
Ashes looked so glamorous laying next to this concrete garden ornament,
that I couldn't help snapping a couple of shots of him.
I've had some of you ask about how he is doing, so I thought I would
have him say hello.
As you can see...he thinks a lot of himself...
and he should.
Because he is one cool cat!
I thought I would show you one of the things I did over the fourth.
Last year I took you to Rebecca's with me.
This is a little shop in Bellevue, Idaho that is only open the 4th of July
and Labor Day weekends.
I am always anxious to see what she has gathered together
for those of us who come to paw through all of her stuff.
Please forgive me for the not so great photos...I was too busy pushing women out of my way
to get to the good goods, to care about the settings on my camera!!!
This lady looks likes she's prepared to push a few women around as well...lol!
I have to play nice when I shop, because I know people here. I hate that!
I'll just be quiet while you look around...
and you know how hard that is for me.
I do want to introduce Laura...
She makes and finds a lot of the great stuff here.
She makes the bags and the pillows, and last year, I showed you the lampshades
that she does.
These sachets are made by a friend of Rebecca's. I bought some last year and one this year.
I think they are so lovely. The lavender that she uses in them is wonderful.
Yes, I did find some really beautiful things that I had to have, and I will be showing them
to you for White Wednesday. I was surprised at how much restraint I used over
the weekend. I guess I am still recovering from my trip to Farm Chicks.
I almost feel like I've overdosed myself on pretty stuff!
OH...speaking of pretty...
Can I share more peonies with you???
I have hundreds of these blooms and I have been cutting them like mad
and have them all over my house. I have enough for at least two more posts.
Did I just hear a groan out there?!
Okay maybe it was just my imagination.
This bouquet started out on the porch...
I did manage to leave some in the garden...
even after cutting all of these!!!
I was able to take a huge bunch to my friend Michelle, which then shared some with Lisa
(my Farm Chick chicks)
I am trying to stay in good graces with them, so they will take me again next year.
Do you think it will work???
How I wish I could box up a huge bouquet and send them
to each of you as well!
I wish you all a lovey Summer weekend.
I hope you do something wonderful!!!
