midnight tracing

                                        What does little birdie say, In it's nest at peep of day.
                                          I traced this from the book in my sidebar called

            New Sample Book of Our Artistic Perforated Parchment Stamping Patterns 

                                           Just being silly with nothing to do.  Can't sleep!

Hi to all!  A few pictures for you, and some update.  Here is Doozey just waking up this morning!
 These photos have already appeared on Instagram and Facebook, but just wanted to add to my blog for the folks who don't visit those places.  I found these gorgeous orchids on a walk through the neighborhood the other day. The homeowner had attached to a tree in their front yard!  Aren't they just so stunning???
 Have you tried the seasonal pumpkin spice greek yogurt?  Love this one.  My DIL found them first, and posted on her Instagram, so I had to go get some too!  Really gets you into the fall spirit!

I added in some new fake (yes, totally fake) fall flowers from Dollar General, into my front garden.  I absolutely love them!  It's shameful, I know, but it is still so hot here, I hate going outside.  These look great from the sidewalk and road.  I'm happy!  Hopefully the neighbors enjoy the pop of color!  Of course, behind them are my REAL purple Black Knight plants that I adore, a row of REAL green plants I cant remember the name of, and behind that are my REAL hibiscus.  LOL.
 Me getting a snuggle from my Doozey girl.
 A cute Calvin Klein dress I found for Audrey, in size 4 that she is currently growing into. It was at Goodwill for $1.15!!!!!   It is a thicker knit, perfect for cooler days with some leggings and a sweater. Best of all is that she loves it!

 I had Emily home from school this past Friday, and she needed to practice her writing.  I made her these writing sheets with her favorite things on them.  She thought it was fun for as long as she could do it before feeling bad again.  Poor baby.  Luckily she was  better in just 2 days!

                                        Daughter took me to lunch for our two favorite sushi rolls.  A caterpillar roll, and volcano roll.  It was great, as usual!
                                                      Close up of caterpillar roll.
 I made a shaker bookmark with the acetate pieces from junk envelopes.  I used two to allow the glitter stars to shake around easily.  I attached the two pieces together using double sided mounting tape.  It worked great!  Trimmed the edge, and covered the back in a gold holographic tape.

 Took a few shots of the tape section at Staples!  WOWZERS!!!!  Its gorgeous!  Many options, for sure!  I love my Staples!!!

Well, that's about all.  I see my roses are starting a heavy bloom period, so maybe next post I can show them to you.  I'm making beef and chicken enchiladas for dinner.  Can't wait!  Have a lovely day!
