Weekend in photos
Thursday + fading blooms


I need to borrow some of Beki's mind-blowing energy+ability-to-get-stuff-done and just wrap this one up already.

just about done.

The hem isn't done. 

I still need to hem the bottom.

And I can't decide what color pillow to make. 

Or pink?  I like the pink pillow, too.

And so it still isn't finished.  But it's reeaaallly close. Oh, and the thank-you prezzies that I promised aren't done yet either.  But they'll get done; please don't flame me for that.

So that's about it, other than the fact that I am disturbed by how excited I am about American Idol tonight.  I love me some David Cook.  We have never watched a whole season before, but it's fun.  Neil Diamond Night should make for some cringeworthy entertainment.  They each have to sing two songs.  Will Jason Castro sing Red, Red Wine? (I've read rumors that he chose September Morn and Forever in Blue Jeans.) What save-the-world-message songs will Archie turn into Muzak?  Will Brooke forget the lyrics again?  You know she'll do You don't Bring Me Flowers. I'm not sure what Syesha will do, but I don't really care.  She's got Broadway written all over her -- which is great -- she's just not a popstar.  Cookie, though... Girl, You'll be a Woman Soon?  Hello Again? I kind of hope he takes something really upbeat and makes it his own, like he did with Mariah's Always be my Baby...   I like that he keeps us guessing.  (Can he make Sweet Caroline edgy?)

Oh, and here's more of my cherry tree.  Because I can't be stopped.




Ooh, I love the green with the blue print. It looks pretty with the curtains.

I'm hoping Cook will do "I'm a Believer". Did you know Neil Diamond wrote that song, and the Monkees performed it? He could probably do a great rendition of "Girl, You'll Be a Woman Soon", too.

And I can totally see Castro doing "Forever in Blue Jeans"...fits his beach-y vibe.

I can see Syesha belting out "Traveling Rose".


Will it be sitting in front of those blue curtains? If so, I like the blue printed fabric.


You are doing great! Beki gives us all something to strive for.

Hey, I like the green with blue. Goes well with your curtains.


Look at that slipcover! You go, girl! It's lookin' good!!!

(I can't offer advice on pillow fabrics. I stink at home decorating.)

oh DEFINITELY the blue and green pillows for the couch. the slipcover looks so great! fresh and crisp.

i am so with you on all of your american idol predictions and david cook is my fav too.


your slip cover looks wonderful! my vote is for green and blue.


The slipcover looks awesome! The light in that room is incredibly great for photos. They always look so nice. I like the blue and green Amy Butler, too.


1. Wow on the slipcover! So impressive!
2. With your curtain in the background, I really like the blue/green/brown AB print for the pillow.
3. I saw U2 do a fantastic version of Sweet Caroline once - at Arrowhead? Kepmper? I don't remember which tour that was. I never liked that song until I saw them do it. :)


man i wish i had beki's energy too! just used a different color variation of the top fabric for a quilt! great to use. but i am lovin that pink too! keep up the energy!
