We enjoyed a moment of sunshine on Wednesday before heading off to IKEA. It was glorious and my petunias looked so happy against the bright blue sky...
But then it started raining and hasn't stopped since....ugh, you're killing me PDX. (It's May if I may remind you.)
The rain caused some serious traffic on our way back home so I started taking pictures while waiting...
But our trip to IKEA was sensational as always.
He doesn't know what it's for but it's gonna be so great, I can't wait to sew it. It's going to be his bday gift from us!
I don't let Woody bring the leash inside anymore because it reeks so bad and we don't have a great place to put it outside, but now we do!!:)
I'm envisioning an entirely pink and white sewing room in my future (in our dream house to come:)
I followed a link @ ThreadBanger and made it into something for me:) [It took about five minutes; really, really easy.]
Although, since the tee was quite large the back really drops down so I can really only wear it over a bathing suit. But, I see lots more of these in my future...
owen did that on his own:)
My pretty petunias...
I went with a slightly smaller basket this year than usual...all that deadheading gets overwhelming so I think a smaller one will be great:)
AND! Last weekend we went to OM's preschool's annual auction...
Do you see O's little face up there on the left? It made Woody and I smile wide:)
There was a silent auction, followed by dinner and then the live auction. We were having such a great time, chatting with other families, dressing fancy, enjoying drinks all the while knowing OM were in good hands @ their preschool for the night.
But the very best thing was the live auction. There was a little action over some of the items but the rowdiest and sweetest bidding war was over a handmade quilt put together by one of the families from one of the classrooms. All the kids had drawn their self-portraits and somehow they had been printed on fabric and then sewn together as a large quilt.
There were about four families going for it on the bids and everyone was cheering and there was thunderous applause and tears were just streaming down my face because it was so unbearably adorable. I think it sold for $850 or $900. !! That's love.
Owen's Friday playdate is on his way over. His name is Nigel and I whenever I see him I always want to sing XTC's repetitive tune, 'making plans for nigel.'
