Tying It All Together

Father's Day (or any reason to celebrate) in my family is all about us getting together.

To marvel at how old the "kids" are getting (while at the same time, us adults never seem to!).

And when you've got a family like mine, it's about remembering how we grew up, the silly things our parents said, and talking about plans for the future.

And when you've got a father who is a rock-hound, it's about making a cake that fits his personality.

And making a gift that does too!

I made these bookmarks from an old necktie that belonged to my grandfather (that's him in the photo on the left).

Happy Fathers Day, Dad!

Life Is A Patio Of Chairies

No, I don't have a problem, I just like chairs.

The Little Pink House is overrun with them this month. I don't have a workshop or a nice big garage in which to work on my projects, so everything gets painted on the (covered) patio. Luckily the MOTLPH (Man Of The (Little Pink) House), rarely minds that he comes home to find things stacked on said patio (or even in the house if it's not paint-permitting outside).

In other news...

What's better than having a pink bike permanently parked in your front yard?

Answer: fresh pink daisies planted in the basket!
