What's New?

Hello friends, 

Gosh, I hate it when I get behind on blogging! 

I've just been staying busy and sometimes I don't 

always take the time to use my "big girl camera" and I just snap off 

shots on my iPhone.  How lazy is that? :-) 

Anyway, it's great to get back to my blog! 

These beautiful, blue hydrangeas belong to our neighbor, Camille. 

I must say, we are SO fortunate to live in a fun neighborhood with such

great neighbors all around! 

How's your summer so far?  Well, technically it's not quite summer yet, 

is it?  I guess it feels like summer to me since we've been enjoying summer like 

temperatures already! (summer weather usually starts in July for Seattle.) 

In fact, I'm kind of wondering if it's ever going to rain again! Lol

This is a new shepherds hook we bought that will keep

 the squirrels at bay.  I love seeing squirrels around, I just don't want 

them eating up all of the bird food! 

Now I have a great place to hang my favorite copper moon feeder, 

and Lucy can see it from her favorite spot on the chair by the window. 

Oh, and for those of you that know how crazy I am about crochet, well, 

I finally decided it was time to see if I could learn how to knit! 

I'm very impatient when it comes to learning new things.  

I'm still feeling clumsy with knitting, and only at the very beginning stages, 

 but I keep reminding myself, that I felt the same way when I started to crochet. 

So, I'll keep practicing...just don't expect any sweaters by Christmas! :-) 

I found some lovely outdoor fabric for 50% off and recovered a couple of 

pillows for our deck chairs. 

I'm happy with how they turned out, and I think they'll be a nice addition 

to our "mix & match" patterns this summer. :-) 

Here's sweet little Shatzie, she likes to be close when I'm at the computer. 

Well, so long for now, I'm off to enjoy a "cold brew" in 

one of my favorite mugs!  

Oh, and if you'd like, remember you can follow me on Instragram 

I'd love to see you over there too! 

Thanks for dropping by,
