Yesterday we had a big thunderstorm with quite a bit of rain. We sat on the porch and enjoyed all the noise and fury until we started getting a little bit too wet. It also rained a bit more later in the afternoon. Still hot and humid, but at least a little rain has soaked the ground.
Heather of Pretty Petals had a giveaway recently and I was lucky enough to win. Are you familiar with her beautiful blog? She is a creative soul and so very talented. I love her style, her studio space, her home and her creations. This arrived in the mail:
I thought I should show you how it looks on me…since I was home alone, I resorted to the bathroom mirror. (Ignore the laundry detergent in the background.)
I’ve been so blessed by the generosity of fellow bloggers lately – my cup runneth over. I have a little something to share with you from my friend Joy in the next post.
By the way, I am still thinking about hosting a “What I Collect” blog party. Since we all seem to be so fascinated by collections, I think it would be great fun. September seems to be a better month for me than August. My Mom is not feeling well, so I’m planning to visit my parents in Florida sometime in August. Maybe toward the end of September, after kids are back in school? What do you guys think?
