I'm now realizing exactly how much lettuce two little packets of seeds produces, because we just can't eat fast enough! Too bad we can't preserve it somehow, for those scorching summer days when not much worth eating is growing. We've had some pretty perfect days, though, actually stretching Spring weather through the most part of Spring. Summer usually hogs more than her fair share of months here.
I wanted to share a few good things with you. Someone asked me on instagram where I got my little glass creamer, and I didn't want to just say, "Oh, sorry, I picked that up in Korea a few years ago." I looked online for a bit, but today, it showed up on Zulily here (a flash-sale site, go here to sign up if you haven't, and you get a $20 credit for the first purchase of everyone you refer!)
They also have an amazing teepee. Because, teepees are THE thing right now. I thought about making one for my kids, because I've already picked out the perfect spot for it, but my list of to-do sewing could pave the road up the east coast. I didn't want a cutesy one, and I also wanted one big enough for a decent size crowd inside (aka the whole Dill clan...or at least a few of us) and it, too, showed up on Zulily! The sale ends tomorrow morning for this one, though!
Someone will be getting it for her birthday next month!!
And you know my mitered corner tutorial? My mom has memorized it and made the most beautiful, simple, linen dish towels for their shop! They are larger than normal, so they really last through a whole days worth of drying, which is no small feat in my house. Plus, they look stunning just hanging up, which is just as important in my book.They also have the most cheerful star named after...ME! Look at the orange goodness!
Do I need a whole window-full? That's a rhetorical question.And one more good thing: Remember my niece with Cystic Fibrosis? Their pantry looks like a pharmacy. I really thought it was and wondered why my sister was snapping shots of her local Walgreens. They have a life-time journey of medical bills and my parents are helping out by donating 100% of the proceeds of this sweet, pink star, the Mary Deane Star, to help cover those bills. Last month they were able to send a check for $1,000! So you get a star (or a baby shower gift) and help a sweet girl with her medication at the same time.
Meanwhile, I've actually done some bonafide sewing this week! I still have boxes that are staring me down, but it gets easier and easier to ignore them and do things more fun. Like sew, paint, bake, sweep, mop, and scrub the toilet. Yes, it's come to that. Hopefully I'll get it done and shared sometime this week. Have a terrific Tuesday!
