Monday Mornings


Happy Monday!

This beautiful collage by Catwalk caught my eye on Etsy this morning... 
To me this captures summer, our minds full of color and beauty!

You can visit the Catwalk store HERE

I know everyone is talking about Google Reader closing down on July 1st, and I finally followed a VERY QUICK switchover to Bloglovin'...and I am LOVING it! It only took a few minutes, and I am enjoying the daily update in one email on the blogs that I follow (making it easier to keep in touch!)

If you have not yet done the transfer, you can do it here:

All you have to do is click the blue button that says 
"Import from Google Reader"

And of course I am there on Bloglovin' if you want to follow me!

Have a wonderful week ahead bursting with the joy that summer brings,

Summer is Officially Here..

Summer is officially here! Somehow I thought that once my boys were out of school I would be lounging poolside and drinking daiquiris, but alas, the pace seems to have accelerated instead...what's a girl to do?!
I am looking forward to a visit from my sister that I haven't seen in too long, my mother, and two of my other "sisters"...
Girl Time!

Park City pictures to come soon...

I just love summer at the lake..
How I wish I had one here...Lake Mead just doesn't cut it.

Do you have a lakeside summer in your plans?

Monday Mornings

Happy Monday!
I hope that you are easing into summer,
 and savouring it!
I just got back from Park City, Utah...
It was so beautiful,
I will share some pictures later this week.

A ring pillow that I made for a customer's
wedding says it all:

"la dolce vita"

May your week be full of the sweet life!

This is where I'd like to be today....looks good doesn't it?!

School is out, but the treadmill is still on full speed ~
I am busy packing for Park City, Utah today.
Leaving 100 plus temps for the 70's ~ Can't wait!

I will be back next week with pictures from what promises to be a photogenic trip...

Enjoy the rest of your week!

I Love Days Like Today..

I just love days like today 
when I receive 
pictures of my work 
being loved...

It puts a smile in my heart!

Isn't he a CUTIE?!

Two school days left for my big boys that were once this little...
and then I will be dancing a jig!

I hope your hump day was as good as mine,

Street Art a Paris

I have walked the streets of Paris for miles on end, and can only imagine what a surprise it would be to turn a bend and see one of Parisian street artist Levalet's pieces...

I always love the mix of old and new in Europe...the mimes in particular are so cool to me!

You can read more about him on Lost at E Minor.

It is our last week of school ~ I honestly do not know where this year went, it flew by so fast! Our temperatures have hit the triple digits, so we are in the pool as often as we can. I am looking forward to a weekend getaway to Park City, Utah, in the middle of the month, and then back to a week full of company...some of my best friends and family.
So I know that June will be gone in a blink of an eye.

And July will be poolside, relaxing and catching up on all of my little projects all over the house.

How is your summer looking, do you have any fun plans?
