Show and Tell Monday, June 30, 2008

Here we are again! Another Monday and Show and Tell. It was such a nice weekend. Went to my daughter's for a barbecue on Saturday and we had a lovely time. The poor girl has got poison ivy so badly and she cooked for all of us anyway. She's such a good kid! The grandchildren were great, as always. Seems every time I see them, they've grown a bit more. My son-in-law was the grill master--he is the cutest, just loves his grill.

Yesterday was nice and quiet. I sat most of the day due to the fact that my knee still looks like a canteloupe. So I created a new whimsy for my site, will finish them up this evening (she said hopefully). Here is my progress so far--

Smells awfully good in my dining room. Little lavender hearts, aren't they cute?

Don't forget, Pink Friday this week. Romantic Roses! Everyone loves roses. Do I have to even tell you that everyone at Make Mine Pink is over the top crazy about this theme??

My favorites are yellow, just something about them that draws me to them. Of course, that's the one color that doesn't dry really well--depends on how you feel about brown!

So, don't forget Friday! As Ethel Merman said:

When you said that Ethel Merman quote, I could just hear her in my head with that voice belting out that tune. What a trip, lol.
