Rainbow my Cloudy day Away.

I left my darling Weims in the backyard this moring as is was a sunshinny beautiful day when I woke up. So...on my way back to the studio after an appointment I saw an incredible display in the sky of ginormous cloud swooping in and by the time I could make it home it was dumping rain. So when I got home and opened the back door to let the pups, they were no where to be seen! I ran out in the rain and found them hunkered down against the fence in the corner. poor babies. (Lucas, this is me giving you permission to build an AWESOME dog house). Needless to say, I was SOAKED!!!!

So...I have created myself a rainbow of beautiful shoes to gaze at, in hopes that all this rain will be done soon. : )

Island Dreams

My sweet little kitchen could use some extra counter space... how would a delightfully lovely turquoise island be??? My oak cabinets are all stained and I think a splash of color and some additional prep space sounds just dandy... not a huge fan of the stucco-esque walls, but check out that AWESOME backsplash...
so playful... cool material...
I'm in luuuuuuuuv.....................

I think this one's style and size would fit perfectly into our little kitchen...
can I paint my cabinets white please???
: )


Sew....what do you think?

I have a lovely old sewing machine at my house that my sweet mother-in-law is letting me borrow. It looks exactly like the one I used growing up to make baby doll clothes.

I'm sure it's still usable, but ever since I made valances for my living rom, I can't get it to work right for me...

I'm really wanting to get more into sewing and I am thinking that I might be asking for a sewing machine for my birthday... I have it narrowed down to two.
I am taking simplicity and price into consideration... Tell me which one you think is better or make suggestions for other machines:
This one is the Singer 1507WC...

This one is the BrotherXL2600i...

Let me know what you think... : )


Possum Kingdom Weekend Trip...

Lucas and his friends put together a back porch "formal" at one of the guys college houses a few years ago and now it's a tradition. Each year there is a theme and every guy brings a date and we have dinner and play games and just hang out. The first year was "famous couples," the next year was "funky fest" (70s), and this year was "Texas."
...This being the 3rd year, they decided to take it up to the next level and make it an out of town event. So we all rented cabins at Sky Camp on Possum Kingdom Lake. When we got there, they had the marquee lit up with a welcome sign for our group...

Here we are in front of the sign wearing our Texas gear....

We got a picture with the whole group in front of the sign too...

Emily and I posing for our Texas Photo shoot....

Here's Lukie with his big catch of the weekend... : )
