5 things...

1. I'm in the sewing mood.

2. I made sugar cookies last week. It's a great recipe...go, make them!

3. I saw this idea in this month's Country Living. I'm on the lookout for six vases that are all the same.

4. The situation in the Gulf of Mexico makes me sad...really sad.

5. and lastly...these two pictures are here. Opening night was this past Friday. My first gallery showing! I wanted to show the boys, that I too, could step out of my comfort zone and way out I did!

I've got six glass POM juice glasses that would be perfect for your vase idea. They're tall and slender and all the same size. Plus, it'd be recycling at its best!

I love the layered Amy Buttler skirt pattern. If you haven't gotten it - you might LOVE it. I have made a ton of them and love everyone!

I know ... the gulf kills me! My hubby and I were going to take an RV trip across Texas, through New Orleans - into Mississippi ... relaxing by the coast and eating sea food ....we'll have to see what we decide to do now :(

Yea! Your first gallery showing - how very exciting! And cookies too. Excellent things all except the sad one.

Milk bottles would work good for those vases, then you have an excuse to get the good milk. :)

I love the photos! Congrats on your first viewing. You must be so proud!

No way! That's so awesome - congrats on your first show! The photos are gorgeous, and I'm sure they'll be a hit. Thanks for the cookie recipe, too - I love sugar cookies and am always on the lookout for a better recipe. (Love how they say "no substitutes" for the butter. No kidding, hahaha!) And the Gulf. Yes - tragic. Today we were watching news of the animals getting pulled out of the sea. Terrible, terrible.

Congratulations on the gallery showing! I especially loved the bleeding hearts, or as we would say in Norwegian, "l√łytnantshjerter" (lieutenants hearts).
