Lots of personality in this post. You are a wizard with the camera, Girl. Love all your pretties, and your dog is a natural photo-pup. ;-)

Does homemade laundry detergent clean your clothes thoroughly? I've wanted to make some but I wanted someone's opinion on it first. I'm assuming you like it since you're making more! :)

So fun! The kitchen stuff made me excited...and its not even mine. I got a BHG Christmas book in the mail this week and it made me giddy!

Thanks for a simply loverly post of photos...(yes, I meant to spell it that way...from "My Fair Lady" when Eliza sings of all that would be 'loverly' in her world!)

A very calming post, showing your love of hearth and home.

AND, I have to tell you that because of knowing you here in blogland, I now know my favorite international soccer team is Portugal!! Saw some of the matches last weekend and didn't know who to pick and now it is obvious...GO Portugal!

Stay cool and have a loverly weekend :-)

I adore your new dish towels and bowl cover! I especially love the bowl cover, it reminds me of some that I saw in Germany, but they were crochet. Yours are so cute with the little colored beads! Just love them!
