hee hee, so happy you guys liked my evil money washing project. Nobody's been asking to do it again, but as I commented to Meg recently, I recently have also begun letting the kids know that if they have a problem being in the same room together, we have a couple of bathrooms that need to be cleaned.
Just so you know, we had some *really* clean bathrooms last week...this week, a little less clean.
Okay, so I wanted to share some things that are making me really happy right now. That print above is from Tamara's new etsy shop and I just love it, just the kind of colors and shapes I like to look at these days.
See that cup there? It was made by Diana. I just adore it. I know you guys can appreciate the fact that there is just nothing better than having afternoon coffee in a cup made by a friend and artisan as talented as Ms. Fayt. I adore this cup! I also am the proud owner of a similar cup with red inside, so come by and we'll have afternoon tea in a matching set! (The fabric is another piece I'm working on out of this book for a belated birthday present.)
I treated myself to a new summer scarf from Heartisans. Its so light and airy and comfy to wear, and looks cute with everything. And they donate a portion of all sales to charity.
Oh! And I purchased and downloaded this great 2009 calendar from Patricia (a Little Hut), which I'm going to work on tonight (it might be the one thing I actually finish before the end of the year). You can use your favorite fabrics to peek out through the letters! What a fun thing to look at all year!
And finally, thanks to some inexpensive frames from IKEA, I've been working on a "greatest hits of summer 08 wall" in our family room. We have needed to update our family photo displays in general around here for a while, so this is a start (I take more photos than ever, yet I print out less). The other day Ian asked who that was pictured in the hallway. "You, silly!", I said.
I may be scarce for the next few days. We are doing a M A J O R clean out/clean up of the kids rooms, (with their help this time, requiring tons of extra time dedicated to negotiating, bribing, and motivating to get it all happening). Plus, Peter is taking my laptop off campus temporarily.
I trust everyone out there is well. If I haven't said it lately, thank you so much for being you, for stopping by here and leaving a comment, for supporting my shop, and all that you do. I am so happy to be blogging again.
