Proud Mama ...

Hope you don't mind that I take a moment to Congratulate Callie!  Y'all took many a tour with me in the Fall ...

Remember the Pineapple Man ... well, I might have to be a little more friendly toward him because SHE has chosen!

Bucknell ... And I have to say ... they should be damn proud to get her!!  And I cannot tell you how happy I am to keep "Orange and Blue" in the house!!

Yep, that's the checkbook on the counter.  All design is ceasing here ... now TWO are in college ... here we go!

Then, because I was all boasting about being in Palm Beach last week.  This is what she was up to:

She and about 30 kids went with our Church to help a small community in the hills of Jamaica.  They never saw the ocean (except from the plane) and came home with smiles and stories.  Best Ever. 

The kids loved getting their pictures made and seeing their faces on the digital cameras.  They didn't have any mirrors and were thrilled to see themselves!

Isn't that the best use of GINGHAM you have ever seen!

Okay ... I'll get back to design tomorrow.   I just couldn't resist being a Mom for a minute!!  



It's Easter this weekend. 
Which makes me think of Pinks and Greens and springtime.  Which makes me think of Summer.  
Which makes me think of Picnics.  
Which makes me think of Gingham.

Some people think Gingham is Old Fashioned.  I like to think of it as "Little Buffalo Plaid".  

And that, my friends, is NOT old fashioned!

I know you have seen this kitchen before.  I can't move on.



Which makes me think of SeerSucker.  
 New Englanders don't really connect with it.

We are culturally "SeerSuckered" into a vortex with this conversation.


And bow ties ... I won't even go there in this post.  

Back to SeerSucker.


Now that I have come out of the basement for my ORC ... the upstairs is getting painted ... 

The outside yard looks like a disaster zone. Melting ice and snow and firewood strewn about ... my dogs think firewood is a bone.

Do you see why I am already focusing on a SeerSucker Spring and Summer!

Do you ...

I am hoping to do all Three ... Hope you'll Come Back and Watch me Play!!
