Random blog we are crushing on: About a year ago Jaime sent me a link to Baby Rabies and said… “She lives in Dallas, you both have a deliciously dark sense of humor, go stalk her and become friends.” We still haven’t met in person but Jill brings daily tears to my eyes with her honest and hilarious commentary on parenthood. She also has mad photo skills courtesy of Clickin’ Moms, where we are both part of their Blog Ambassador program.
Funny thing my kid said: Quinn: “Cinderelly dressed in yelly, come sit next to me ya fine felly” Parent. Of. The. Year.
Favorite comment on prudent baby: This is truly beautiful! and great job on the gardening!
I’m at the year-1 stage of backyard gardening in our new home. Some plants start to get killed by the southern heat, so I put on shade and they slowly recover from the heat damage. Learning process…..
Thanks for sharing your garden pictures, I hope mine gets better and better in the years to come~
It’s great to know I’m not alone on the Summer heat gardening woes. Oh Texas. Thanks for the tips Lucy!
New fabric on my wish list: Sheri Berry Designs Alpine Wonderland It may feel too early for Holiday fabric but this stuff sells out, people, and FAST. In fact, I better scoop some up before you lovely ladies grab it all!
Place we wish we were headed this weekend: I can’t wait! In just a few short weeks I am off to Florence and Umbria for a week. I’m mostly going to celebrate our dear friend Kate’s wedding (aren’t her invites by Swiss Cottage Designs gorgeous?) but first I’ll be exploring Florence for a few days for the first time. Take that bucket list! I haven’t planned anything yet, gulp, so can I sleep on your divano? per favore? All Florence advice and hook-ups welcome.
This thing I acquired and adore utterly: My friend Anca, who I met through Tophatter, sent me these gorgeous suede scraps that were leftover from her handmade journal/sketchbook shop. Wouldn’t her journals make the perfect graduation or Father’s Day gift? Or birthday gift for your favorite May baby? : ) Anca is in Romania so plan ahead! You will be seeing these beautiful pieces of leather popping up in future projects here at PB.
I am off to Kansas City for Quilt Market this Sunday. I wont have time for much except lunch and dinner near the convention center. Anything I MUST EAT or DRINK in Kansas City?
