Friday Pretties at the Farmer's Market...

Happy Friday Pretties!
Big Jer, my youngest and I went to our 
local farmer's market on Saturday.
It has been a long, cold winter and
this Farmer's Market is a
 breath of fresh air.
A favorite spot that I found on this
shopping trip is
Shower Treat Soap 
 Wouldn't these be great gifts?
I think that I need to think ahead.

Everything smells soooo

 And of course...
 I love all of the plants and flowers.
Things are really greening up in my gardens 
with all of the rain we have had- 
especially my lovely weeds...
But, I  don't want to complain because
 I know that there are many, many 
devastated families and friends
who have lived through the 
very destructive tornados around the country.

To any of you out there that have been touched 
by these disasters please know that 
my heart goes out to you.

Friday Pretties Luxury...

To me...
a lush carpet of pine needles 
or springy grass 
is more welcome...
than the most 
luxurious Persian rug.

Mother's day

Happy Mother's Day
My Mom went home to 
Heaven in September.
The firsts are hard.
This is the first Mother's Day without my Mom.

But, I am going to honor her today by 
enjoying my own family.
That is what she would 

Enjoy your day.
Give Your Mom a Hug!

Friday Pretties Dreaming...

Here I go again...
Dreaming of a little cottage on a lake.
The back wall of doors extends the living area to the porch. The substantial trim work above the doors adds height for a seamless transition to the tall ceilings inside.

Sunshine Day Living Room

white kitchen with French doors and a painted floor
In this beachside bunkroom in South Carolina, a pop of solid color against the small-scale print anchors the space while still keeping the mood light and the look cohesive. The rug picks up on the other blues so that the patterns can coordinate, not clash.

Coastal Master Bedroom

white on white

This tent-like tipi has an air mattress inside for added comfort and makes a great place for children to play (or nap!).
What are you dreaming of?

 Friday Pretties! 
Have a wonderful 
Mother's Day Weekend.
Celebrate Your Mom!

Summer Reading & "The Little Things..."

Summer Time Reading
I just read four good books.
 The Sky Is Everywhere
By: Jandy Nelson
The Sky is Everywhere - Jandy Nelson

Left Neglected
Still Alice
By: Lisa Genova

 Last year I also read
The Help 
By: Kathryn Stockett
I read this book last year and loved it.
I decided to buy the audio version of it
The Help
 and am listening to it in my car 
as I drive around,
and also as I sew.
The audio is so, so good.
The different voices add so much to the book.
I highly recommend the audio version.
Check your local library.
And, I just saw that it is being made into a movie.
I CANNOT wait!!!

P.S. I do want to let you know that all four of these
 books have some language in them.
 Just a forewarning.

Any Suggestions from fellow readers?
Share your favorites.
I have so many that I hardly
know where to start...

A"Little Thing"
that I love
 is really a big thing to me...

by Ann Turner

Do you remember
learning to read?
That book full of squiggles 
like ants, escaped.
the teacher's big thumb
on the page,
your heart beating inside
afraid that all you'd ever see
was ants---
Then a word popped out.
"See," and another, "cat,"
and my finger on teacher's
we read "I see cat."
I ran around the room
so happy I saw words
instead of ants.

I remember this moment.
My life changed dramatically 
when I learned to read.
Freedom to go anywhere...
