Sister Time

Having a great time with my sister - out here for a two week visit from OK!  Only two days left with her and her baby girl!!!  Going on day trips and enjoying the sights together and enjoying every minute together ; )

Rose Peasant Shirt

I waited till Old Navy was having a sale to buy a couple of these "peasant shirt" style tops (the other one is dark blue).   I'd been on the look-out for a peasant style shirt for summer - they're everywhere this year and I couldn't help thinking they looked pretty and comfortable.
I haven't done many outfit posts over the winter because I basically wear the same thing day after day: long sleeve knit top, fleece vest, skirt, legging/sock combos, and clogs - like HERE.
It's barely showing signs of spring here, but the temperatures are more moderate!  I can wear this outfit today without a fleece ; )  I like the embroidery on the yoke - geometric instead of floral suits me just fine!  It's funny, for all my love of flowers: gardening, painting, etc. I never wear flowery tops - skirts maybe, but rarely tops (I think I own one that I wear once or twice a year).

Hand Lotion

A special treat came in the mail from a dear friend - hand lotion from my favorite brand Crabtree&Evelyn!  I love their products and hand lotion is a must-have for hands that wash dishes in the winter ; )  Thanks for everything that came in my special box - to be enjoyed and cherished!

Floral Banner for Resurrection Sunday

A free printable D.I.Y. banner for Easter!  From the talented Ann Drake at The Sutton Place  - I printed it on card stock, trimmed them, and put them on ribbon.  It's actually for my Mom tomorrow who's hosting a big meal for all of us ; )

We just got back from a trip to Pennsylvania and found these primroses at a bent-and-dent store!  At two for a dollar, I had to bring some home!  I got 6 pots of the flowers and 6 bags of chocolate - what more could a girl need?!

Wild Animals

By nature, boys are half wild anyway!  The boys wanted wild animal masks to go with some play teeth they just got from the dentist as a reward for routine cleaning appointments.  So, we made some wild animal masks....I'm an amateur mask maker, so I'm not even sure what these animals are!  But, the boys think they're fun ; )

Little Moss Garden

I collected lichens and moss from trees outside and piled them together with the bark on this plate, watered it well, and covered it with a cloche.  The cloche will keep the moisture inside, and the mosses will continue to grow on the bark...

I also found this tinsy bitsy johnny-jump-up to grow in there - maybe it will bloom when it gets big enough?!
