Happy Friday...

I'm off to check the gardens in search of more ripe tomatoes. I had my first one yesterday, sliced up on top of some pizza. What are you up to this weekend?
Hope it is wonderful! - A.



It's true. I have fallen for many a brown-eyed boy. They are my weakness.
But, I now believe it was these eyes I was searching for all along.
Happy birthday my love. xoxox

p.s. I think I will happily return to a more normal schedule next week. All this celebrating is exhausting!


Last Night

We finished cooking at 10:00. The birthday girl (still celebrating a week later) wanted to eat outside. It was very dark. Christmas lights, candles, and a flashlight were found. Fireflies danced. Hollyhocks glowed. A party was born. The wind whispered, this is summer, this is summer.


This week is flying by... Is it for you too?

For those of you who have asked, I will NOT be at the Island Art Fair this year. I do love that show, but this summer it doesn't fit into my schedule.

And, at the prompting of many friends, I now I have Facebook Page for my business.
You are welcome to stop by anytime, but in all honesty there probably won't be any news there that you haven't seen here first.

Off to water my wilted plants... I no longer trust the weatherman who has been talking about rain for days.
Enjoy your afternoon!


Happy Birthday

Right now I am thinking about...

*The sweet sounds of Neko Case at last night's birthday (my mom's) concert. Mom is the darling baby in the middle with my Grandma.
*How lucky we were to have such a perfect night.
*The food my Aunts are cooking for the continued celebration this weekend.
*These gorgeous earrings.
*How nice is feels when big projects are finally in the mail.
*Blueberry picking. Hopefully, they are ripening despite the awfully cold weather.

What are your weekend plans? I hope they are fabulous! xoxo- A.
