Although these photos were taken near my home, I find the Columbia lily to be both unique and exotic-looking.  Their bulbs were sometimes used as a food source by Native Americans.

I’m just going to put this here, because 1. I worked very hard to make this 2 years ago when Harry Potter and the first Planet of the Apes was released. and 2. Because I just saw Dawn of the Apes and it made me think of this silly thing.  3.  If I wasn’t so lazy, I’d update this picture with the ape now holding a gun.

I guess you could say that today was one of the crowning moments of my life.

Would you believe I had actually bought BBQ pellets, pierogies, waffle fries, lasagna, shrimp and a diet soda?

Do you ever have one of those moments where you want to serenade your dog with her own theme song?

A little something I made for today.

With all the creative people surrounding me, I thought I’d share the sewing project I finished before Christmas.

Since hubby and I were surprising our daughter and my mom with a 7-day Caribbean Cruise, I wanted to make us girls a souvenir to remember such an amazing adventure.  Each fabric represented each of us; My mom loves watery blue colors, my daughter loves her zebra and me with my purple.  I then cut out three purse patterns and mixed and matched each piece so our colors would be together, but not the same.  I also decided to go off script a little and make my own design for the purse straps.

Even though I never had time to add the inner buttons or add an anchor patch, I do feel pretty happy with my results.  This was my third project with my new sewing machine and it was a pretty ambitious one at that.  Come to think of it, it might even be considered my 3rd, 4th and 5th!

While walking around Bourbon Street, we came across a photo op that couldn’t be denied.
