nice when a plan comes together...

The fabric arrived and YES! it's perfect.  Sometimes this is a 2nd/3rd try kind of thing, so maybe I'm getting better at this color matching.  My screen shot looks great, then the fabric comes and the color is so very wrong.  Now I design, print, tweak, print, tweak more....print again.  Then submit, say a prayer, maybe a few, and wait for the mail to deliver the perfect piece.

Can you believe we're looking at June here!  There is that swooshing noise again, time flies!

My sweet Mom was wanting a Bottlebrush bush .  She was so excited to find the above at the market one Saturday morning.  I kept looking at it, wondering why it didn't look like the one I'd had a few years ago, another yard, another life.  
So we started researching on the web.  Turns out this is a Fairyduster, we love it!  
About a day or so before Mother's Day it started putting forth all these little raspberry looking pods.  Mother's Day morning, Voila!  It was covered with little fuchsia powder puffs. How fun to go out and find all this color.  

I love elephants!  I especially love them when they are gifts!  My darling daughter gave this very special tea cup to me for Mom's Day.  It's a Jonathan Adler, see me smiling.  
It's happily taking up residence most days on the red table by the purple stitching chair.  Just one of the many Smile Spots I've created in my cozy nest here.
