Yes, I am smiling Debi :) Can you see me?
Beautiful post, I love to buy flowers once in a while at the grocery store, just because, and candy, so I try not to go often LOL. I love the sneak peaks of your work you showed us and the new inspiration board is beautiful :)

I love the roses. I buy myself flowers all the time. That way I can pick m favorites.Can't wait to try coconut m&m's. Really like your inspiration board. I love old fashioned bobbins. Got some pretty shabby blue ones on the way in the mail.

Elyse said...

dearest debi,

i don't think i can blame the heat -- i have a lump in my throat over this dear little post.

i am so happy about our shared birthdays swap; i love that things like super market flowers pick you up (me, too); and i adore that you are using things from your dad.

oh, AND, i recognize the ribbon i bought you at brimfield in your project. that just tickles me!

i'm happy that you are having a happy day!

I love the flowers. There's something about the simplicity of pink roses that is so fulfilling.

I am a coconut nut. I could live off coconut! I've never heard of coconut M&M's though! Were did you find them? I have to try them!
