About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

This and That

I'm making this for dinner tonight. Taquitos! You must stop by the Ungourmet! She has inspired me with her recipes on several occasions. Try the muffins with the dried cranberries and chocolate chips. And her spaghetti!


I checked these books out today. Like I need more books to read. It's an addiction. Something Borrowed was recommended by Ruby Red Slippers and The Killing Circle was recommended by Harlan Coben. Love his books.

Went to a few yard sales, too, much to my girls' displeasure. Fabric $1!!!! All 7 feet (or so) of it. Yes, this gorgeous blue toile went home with me.:) Embroidery hoops $1 for 4. I was inspired by Jen and Elise. Thanks Sweets!:)

Added some goodies to my shop. I am loving this little Night Owl necklace. The amazing lapis beads are like the night sky... Inspired by my late night visit with Jamie.:)

Mermaid Dreams. I am crazy about the refreshing colors of the ocean...

Jeff bought this for me when we were at the beach. I saw it in a shop and was immediately in love...

My sister brought this back from Ireland for me! I was speechless! It was definitely made for me.:) Thanks Amy!

What are your big plans for Father's Day weekend? Ours is a secret, but I will share with you on Monday.:)

Hi Lori
How I wish I could have gone yardsaleing with you! I love the blue toile, it gorgeous. Your new necklaces are beautiful, the Night Owl is so cute and the Mermaid Dreams is such a lovely colour. The pitcher is adorable and I agree it was made for you. The poem is so sweet and very true.
Hope Jeff has a happy Father's Day tomorrow. Look forward to hearing what you did.
