Look What we Found...

or I should say - Look what Eily & Leo found! Our ancient lilac tree succumbed to disease this year and finally died...but from something bad has sprung something amazing...the kids found this neat treasure yesterday...

right at the base of our driveway!! I hope they didn't disturb it too much and that the parents are somewhere near by...if we get babies I will post the pics here ;)

The color of the eggs is amazing ~I wish I were a painter and could capture it on canvas...

I am participating in a Luau themed launch with eBD and have a fun 2 piece hula girl set up for auction now on here to go to auction

I also spent the day Monday making a felted wool purse for Journal Modiste's refashion launch...I felted a jcrew rollneck sweater, needle felted some flowers to the outside, added topstitching in a luscious shade of green, lined it with Amy Butlers lotus fabric and Voila!

Lotus Blossom was born! I think I am secretly hoping it doesn't sell because I have fallen in love with it..the sweater felted SO thick, it is a super sturdy purse!

Good Friends + Good Food = Good Fun!

Saturday night found my family over at our friends where the kids enjoyed splashing in their pool & running around playing ....the adults meanwhile, were treated to a gourmet meal cooked by one of the dads...scallops, shitake mushrooms, brocolini, bucatini,fresh tomato sauce and a nice bottle of wine...a wonderful way to spend a summer saturday evening.

Thanks Bruce for braving the heat of the kitchen & Susan for hosting the rather unruly group of adults , er I mean kids ;-)
