Random Photos from my week....

This week involved:

me painting my nails to match my water bottle at work.


My coworker suprised me with the biggest bottle of vodka I have ever seen! I think it is going to take me awhile to finish this!!



I admired the beautiful Spring weather through my sunroof!


My parents cat, Bailey, supervised our craft night!



My mom got out her very first quilt she ever made. She did it all by hand in a quilting class! Last night we decided that our next craft project is going to be a quilt! I am so excited. I think we are going to do a yo yo quilt!


I don't believe my Aunt Paula has had a knot defeat her yet. She always ends up working on my yarn messes. Thank you Paula...love you!




Working in our existing herb garden. Our cilantro came back in abundance this year! And for some reason the garlic and shallots we planted last year decided to sprout this year?!? We usually plant cherry tomatoes in this area next to our basil and have great results. This year we bought an heirloom tomato to add to the mix. I am so excited to try them. Along with the tomato, this week we planted chives, rosemary, basil, and cauliflower! Next week we are going to be working very hard on our box garden. I can not wait!

This weekend is going to be busy but so fun. We will be attending a theatre banquet, spending time with our mommas, shopping at a local/organic farmers market, and working in our yard! I can't wait.
What are your plans for the weekend??
XOXO

That herb garden would be so cute with a border of old dishes. Maybe we should check out some flea markets soon.
Love you!
Mom

I love those weather photographss!

My 9 month old tangled up 3 of my favorite colored yarns and I spent a week on them then ended up just having to cut them up into pieces. :( Lucky you have your aunt!

Your nails are great! and the ring is FAB!
I adore your cute little garden, a vintage plate border would be perfect to frame it.

Does your quilt have a predominent colour scheme or theme? Can't wait to see it!

Can I have a swig? ;)

Have a great weekend Sweetie! xo

I of course love the orange nails :)
Your ring is very pretty too ps!
That is the BIGGEST bottle ever lol good luck!
Oh my goodness - the only cat I ever loved was a calico -Muffin - I was like 8 when I got her - she'd always want outside and I'd search for her for hours and then I'd give her a bath lolol and be all clawed up. I think I like Bailey the cat ;)
Your mom is very pretty and I'm super impressed with her quilt! Is it a sampler quilt? I've never done one, but I want to!
And I'm impressed with your gardening! Very impressed! Out of three - two are left and one is fading fast lol
Have a very wonderful weekend!
