Of Twine and Summer: Here at Last!

I love baker's twine. Those twisty colorful strands are just so happy looking, they make me smile! And I love green. Limey, Shartreusy, Juicy Green. Delicious. So of course I had to go and get me some of this Honeydew-colored baker's twine from The Twinery. It goes perfectly with my favorite Peeled Paint Distress Ink from Ranger. Put those together and I am in green heaven! I can't wait to use my new twine, and just may have to get me another spool or two at Christmas time. Love!

I think that summer may actually be here, finally. It's been such a long and wet winter, and it feels like we hardly had a springtime at all. But now we're into the upper 80's here in NorCal, flirting with the 90's. It got quite warm in our house and I was even tempted to start up the AC yesterday, but I just went with a couple of fans instead. Love the warm weather, but it's easier to deal with when it comes on gradually! But summer is wonderful so I won't complain. Life is good!

My sweetie and I are headed out this evening to look for a new sectional sofa for our family room. We've been looking for a while now for the perfect pad on which to perch our bottoms, but so far no luck. We have a long and somewhat narrow room and the options that will fit the space are limited, but the search continues! Off we go...
