I have been so busy lately it's all I can do to blog for Thursdays! We have 5 family birthdays in May, My son built a new home and Mothers Day is soon. Lots of gift planning.
Please join me at Lee Anna's siteNot Afraid of Color to see all of the positive vibes.
Here are my faves today:
1. Pretty, comfy, cotton p.j's for the summer. It gets so hot here you barely want clothes on. But, I cannot seem to purchase anything in the stores that fit, so I made a pair. I just took a pair of knit ones, drew lines around the seams for a front and back while adding 2 inches and just sewed everything together! I added soft elastic in the waist band -done and done. Sorry, I forgot to take pictures. It's not like I didn't have pretty fabric in the stash.
2.The month of May. First of all (literally) it's my birthday, Mother's Day, other family birthdays, flowers are in bloom till they die in June, graduations, and just all around nice times.
3. My new Queen's chair. So, there's a story about this. I'm a frugal person most times and I'm on a fixed income since retirement, so I'm pretty careful with money. BUT, lately I've seen a few websites showing small comfortable patios with lovely plants, a pretty big comfy chair, pillows, ladies lounging with a good book......... You get the idea. Anyway, I like my patio but I never spend time out there. So I purchased a high- back white wicker chair! I also got new throws and pillows. All from the At Home store. I love this and can now sit out there very early in AM (sunrise at about 5:30) and enjoy the sights, smells and sounds while meditating and reading for about an hour. What a luxury:
4. My little baby Zinnia's. I started them from seed with plastic wrap over the top about a month ago. I have lots! so, I'm babying them along. So cute.
Well, that's all for today but I hope you have enjoyed the view. Join Lee Anna for more.
Have a great day. May the fourth be with you!
