i guess

I will crawl out of my hole and blog?
The last few weeks have been very hectic. 
My very witty and awesome grandmother 
passed away a few weeks ago.
She definitely was a presence and I am going 
to miss her.
She was a woman after my own heart :
she could eat a pie for dinner, always stayed up 
late, and was never serious. 
She was the center of every crowd.
love this moving shot on the 'jazzy'
and amidst all the madness, grandma 2 decided 
to have surgery. timing!
So, I am back. I am planting... a little late, which 
vexes me, but! I did purchase this lovely giant
(yes, the biggie!) greenhouse for my seedlings. 
yay me. 
Its kind of an *upgrade from last years seedling 
greenhouse.. being made of glass and all. 
And I almost flipped my lid at Roger's
Easter lay out. Egg madness. 
I had to leave quickly. But I will return. 
And purchase stuff. Glitter covered
smiling bunnies in overalls carrying 
bags of egg stuff. 
This was my fave egg.. 
stained glass painted on real eggs. 
In other news, I totally missed Valentines.. 
and I am sorry. I did make cookies?
plus, in totally creepy news, Ava got stick-on 
watermelon fingernails for Vday. 
Don't worry, they lasted about ten minutes before
getting matted into the carpet. 
Yes, that is the ANNIE vinyl in the background. 
And, yes, we do know ALL the words. 
Wanna come over? ha. 
And lastly, coming up next Tues is the Holiday 11 photoshoot. 
mid century styling +
+ my mom's hair from 1968
 = success!!
Anyway, I will start making our lunch plans and 
returning calls and texts now, and even 
repair my car and speakers(!) while I'm at it. 
Thanks for all the vday gifts and cards. 
I have yours.. they are tardy.
