linen, zinc, chalk, and rust alert!

this store needs to come to
i loved everything so much,
that i gave it a little place on my sidebar.
to me, it's all French bread!

cinnamon girl...

a dreamer of pictures...
...i we'll run in the night...'ll see us together...
...chasing dancing and singing in the moonlight...
~ miss cinnamon and blue, i love you! ~

i love {to hug} my cinnamon girl!

Neil, i changed the words...just a little...
your old tune is now a lullaby.

the moment i wake up...

...before i put on my makeup...

...i say a little prayer for you!

{America's national day of prayer!}

today's perfect little stick in your head tune!

blogging in the dirt... is it too early for heavy metal?

when it's raining, 
one does a little bit of indoor gardening.
i'm pinning... and... placing pretty white photo corners on ...
...Cal's garden doilies.
she makes her handmade lace with a blow torch!

a tiny basket bouquet...

a May basket does not have to be a
major project. it's always fun to make do with what
you have around the house. 

:: paper doilies
:: ribbon
:: stickers
:: dried bay leaf
(and...the afterthought...lavender.)

here we go...
just 3 minutes per basket...

i DOUBLED the doilies for extra strength.
after the photos i  made some little bundles
of lavender to tuck inside the doilies...

they became an instant!

happy May day, dearest of dears!
