A walk outside....

Grasshoppers gross me out and fascinate me.

I was tired of being in the house so I decided to take a walk outside-- in the heat...very hot out there! I grabbed my camera and Mr. Grasshopper was the first thing I saw.

fern.... hope i can keep it alive... i'm not good with ferns.

            mint... the grasshoppers ate most of it.
           I sprayed it so maybe it will come back.

She loves me. She loves to be cuddled. I carried her around for the rest of my walk.....


Me and my TWO shadows

I've been crafty....

I've been spending some of my time visiting my favorite blogs lately. I have A LOT saved in my favorite files. A few I look at regularly, but most I don't get to look at that often. I came across a blog that I had favorite-ed and spent a couple of days looking at all her wonderful crafty projects....

like this one...

and so I decided to make some of my own. So easy and they turned out really cute.
I had some of my mother's old quilting scraps... dug them out and found some cute material to braid together.

Do I look silly?
I safety-pinned the scraps together and held the pin
 in my mouth to be able to braid the pieces together.

New earrings...
my friend Julie already bought them.

New earrings and necklace.
I love the necklace. I got to wear it once
and then sold it to my friend,
