Monday Pretties....


I love this idea of the flowers around the door frame. Cute for spring or a little girls room.



These pastel houses in a row are amazing.



I want these tights!



Such a pretty bouquet!



So lovely!

Happy Monday!

What a pretty terrible weekend!
It all started Friday morning.
My phone was ringing off the hook.
One right after the other from different family members.
My sister, my uncle, and finally my father.
I answered his call.
My mother had been in an accident.
He wasn't sure of the details becuase he hadn't spoken to my sister.
The world became suddenly very small.
My mind raced was it a car accident? Howbad was it? How injured was she?
She was hit while trying to cross the street by a little ols woman who panicked and hit the accelator instead of the brakes.
Her tibia (lower leg bone) was broken.
She was rushed to County USC.
Only to wait around hours and have NOTHING done there.
Finally she was transferred close to midnight to the hospital in our town.
She received attention right away. Thank God!
She's had two surgeries and will start Physical Therapy soon.
 I've had to step up and play mom to my four youngest siblings.
Make sure they are feed and the house keeps running smoothly.
Not an easy task. Not fun.
But I do it because there's really no one else who can or is willing to do it.
I wouldn't lie it's been overwhelming.
I'm trying to stay calm and collected.
But most importantly I'm trying not to stress eat!

Monday Pretties...

Can you believe that next weekend is the first day of Spring?
It's exciting! More time outside, more sunshine!
So this post is definitely Spring inspired.



I'm really looking forward to seeing everything blossom! It always inspires me to bring the camera out.



I'm looking forward to dressing lighter as well.
No more heavy clothes.



Picnics are another fun thing to look forward to this spring as well!

Hope you enjoyed!
I had a rough weekend but I'll share more about that on Wednesday

WIP

My title is misleading today.
I've been sickish.
So I haven't worked on anything.
All I really wanna do is sleep.
I don't like feeling this way.
But here are two pictures I took last week that I thought I'd share





Just some practice shots I took of my lemon tree.

Take Care

WIP

These are the new Blythe tops I've been working on. I'm thinking about trying out different patterns on the bottom.


And here's Penny wearing the darker top.
I really like how these pictures of her turned out.

Gotta go on more tops!
