{ A happy little day }

My Mom knows me so well. This vintage red and while polka dot
apron that she gave me "just because" last week
is the perfect example of that. I told her it may
perhaps be my new very most favorite thing. Ever.

But then, my sister, who loves to give,
bless her heart, suprised me with these
Black Mary-Jane Crocs. ,
as a early, early birthday present.
I told her yesterday, that I love them so much,
I could barely bring myself take them off when I got in bed last night,

And look at this stack of books, chalk full of inspriation and yummy eye-candy...
that I can enjoy for free from the library.

So I am floating around here in the sunshine, hand in hand with my little bit of a girl, picking yellow Graham Thomas roses, and black berries in my vintage apron and oh so cute crocs. Getting ready to bake pies. This day feels like something straight out of Martha Stewart Living.
Only Better than that because it is my real life.

P.S. A book list can be found here.

Dear friend,
You are too cute! I love your new things and you should list your books since they look so yummy and you know how we love to share book and magazine ideas. :)
Love you dear!

Sounds like a wonderful week:D What a darling apron!! Mothers are such sweet friends. What would we do without them? I too would like a list of the books if you have the time. Hope the rest of your week is as lovely as the beginning:)

Your real life sounds magical! Thanks so much for your sweet encouragement...and for checking Craig's List for me! As it turns out, Amy left her machine here for me to borrow 'til NEXT SUMMER, so I have plenty of time to find the perfect machine for me. ;) Enjoy the beautiful day!
