My poor old apricot tree. There's only a couple of branches blooming this year. It was old when we moved in, and now, 25 years later, its really old. Ugly and half dead I still love how it looks out there. Glad the squirrels are leaving the blossoms alone, maybe we'll have a couple of apricots.

She loaned me this book. She read a couple of hilarious passages to me and I can't wait to get started on it. I'm at the end of my current book, so by tonight I hope I'm laughing my head off.
Ok, peeps, happy Tuesday. xo

He's modeled after a Mary Engelbriet garden flag of the jumping scottie. I don't even remember how Bret got the idea but he had it made for me a couple of years ago.

I'm working on a project I talked about with Nireko when we met up. She sent us some of the wonderful new pieces of the Flower Sugar line for Lecien. I have an idea for a little pattern for them to give away. Anyway, I was trying to be clever. Of course I'm not that good of friends with the embroidery machine, we don't hang out all that often. First I had trouble with the layout.... couldn't get things even. Then I switched to the large hoop and got all the way down to the last 'r' and saw this on my screen. HOLY CRAP. That is not good.
Phew, it did. Because I was seriously thinking of giving up even though I was thinking it was a fun idea.
I thought about doing another and then I put the machine away. No point in tempting fate. Hope you had a good day peeps.
p.s. those "Irish" yesterday live in Monterey.. not at my house!

These are some scenes from last week's sunny days. I went over to Clayton to the dentist and the trip through the hills was wonderful. The pictures are a bit of a blur, even the ones I pulled over to take.

Buca has some crazy decor and I was determined to get some shots of the bathroom because seriously people, its like a flashback to my youth. I wish my picture of the plastic fish would have turned out, shades of our bathroom in the 50's. Frankie hadn't noticed them before and was dying over them. Everything old is new again I guess.
I can remember my mom using that Fanci-Ful hair color back in the day. I just crack up every time I see this little beauty display.
There were lots of 'products' that needed explaining, which always cracks me up. Believe me when I say, we have come a long way baby.
These pink tiles match the pink the in the stalls and the pink on the horrifying wallpaper. Somethings should not be revisited.
I loved this pink shade on a very ugly base. I see these all the time at the antiques shows and wish I had ceiling lights.
This blue one reminded me of a gold lamp that was hanging in our house here. The blue is probably a million times better but still, not that good.
Retro was the theme, saw this car driving home. Seriously I wish that cat would look as good on my car as it does on this red one. I love this stuff.
I find this time change hard, it feels more like hours than hour, thank goodness the daylight we're saving looks like this.
Busy week ahead with appointments etc, so posting may be sparse. I'll miss you peeps, and will be checking bloglines on my Sidekick, because that's how I roll.

She skirted the edges sniffing out a winner.
Then she took a moment to think about it and dove right in. All my picture of her picking are blurry, so you'll have to take my word for it, she snatched out the winner. And then I told her I had another little box of bake shop and she could pick another winner. She was thrilled.
