  1. Cute post! Maybe it's just me, but I couldn't see the ones your uncle sent you which makes me want to see them all the more!


  2. I am digging this post like a duck digs a Junebug. *awesome*

    That tablecloth is stunning!

  3. Holly- I've also had that happen before when I'm looking at others blog posts- when that happens you just have to refresh the page. Can't explain it but it works most of the time :) Thanks for visiting!

  4. Haha! What a clever, clever post! I'll be doing my on post on watermelons sometime soon too -- in relation to floral design.

  5. I really love these summer colors! You've motivated me over these past few months to tackle some new projects, which have turned out great. Keep posting - your blog is awesome!

  6. I am so in love with that ring! It is beautiful!

  7. Oh! I think I must have a watermelon pink chest now!

  8. I am loving that watermelon pink console chest! So pretty.
