peek at the week #19

  • Woo Hoo another week and I am right now on my way to Saratoga -- next week's peek will surely host lots of shots of our event...so watch facebook for some real-time peeks as what we are up to at our 11th Annual Spring Fling...

  • In the meantime....here's #19!!!
  • Thanks to Jeanett at Life Rearranged for the inspiration to share a peek at my week via cell-phone shots...it's great to be linking up with the gals who each inspire me with the ups and downs and ins and outs of their days...

  • Look who's on the road for SPRING! TRIXIE!!!  Here she is on Wisner Road watching me start my run...
  •  
  • ...love this...need it forever...need my kids and their love...
    •  Meet Miss Petunia....she has grown right from Jody's imagination...I love each of the new pieces Jody sent to us for our event this weekend in Saratoga...
  • And little "Blackie McLaser Eyes"...our feral friend who comes to dine daily...she's getting closer and closer...hoping to be able to catch her before it's kitten season and we have a family to tend...
  •  
  •  Annual Concerts....it's amazing to see how far these kids have come together...many of them have shared classes since pre-school and now it's onto Middle School for my 5th grader soon to graduate....
    • Here's Aidan with his best pal, Dan...
    •  Breaks my heart that Dan will be moving in June, but the friendship will manage the distance...do you just love his bow-tie? What a super kid.
     
    •  Looks at these vintage beauties...it's PROM season...Joyce had these swinging in her shop...I wore a vintage black 1940s dress my mom nabbed at a yard sale to my own prom, I have always had a soft spot for the vintage and the pre-loved...
  • And speaking of clothes... Anne has me motivated the way only a true friend can....I REALLY NEEDED to clean out that closet, and I am on my way...still gobs to do...hey Letty want some hand-me-ups???
  •  
  •  Marigolds in styrofoam cups....i love these handmade, handgrown efforts for Mother's Day...melts me....

  •  Ahhh hand labeled serving peices at Rose Petal Porch...me and Kath went down to visit wiht Joyce and plan for our June event...more on that soon!
  • ...lots of times as a kid you just have to wait around, and wait and wait...and these two have the face to prove just how much fun that is...

  •  The tea cabinet doth over flow...if you are here soon, please ask for tea....
  •  
  • Here's hoping you had a good week and are on your way to another one filled with good things...
xxoo Jen
