i am so happy with this beautiful weather. it feel like beach weather … minus the beach. i know it won’t last, so i’m sucking it all in.

i am finding some wonderful new blogs like this one, this one, this one, and this one. check them out!

i am still a worrier. maybe even more so these days.

i am in love with this fabric and this fabric. if they come back in stock soon, i think either would be perfect for curtains on my window in my hall … which i will soon be painting a light green.

i am really super happy when i’m in a greenhouse/nursery. i just love everything about it. everything. the flowers, the water, the dirt, the trees. anyone know of a greenhouse for sale? i’m adding it to my bucket list!

(on a side note, i got the most amazing green leafed japanese maple tree for $15 this weekend. it was originally priced $90. it was severely bent/crooked (hence the discount), but with a support pole and some string, it’s as good as new! my advice – always check out the clearance section.)
