Day after day after DAY of over 90 degree weather! Acckk….. I blame my lack of gumption to get stuff done on the HEAT! Please enjoy the following pictures with ideas that I have come up with. The first few pictures feature what else but DOGS!
Love this cute doggie and the tote bag too. I found this lady’s blog called “Agilejack” via Pinterest. This is her dog Rico. You can watch Rico learning how to round up sheep and see great Tote Bags and her quilts.
This so funny. Yep, found it on Pinterest.
When I want comfort food THIS is what I reach for. It TRULY is the “World’s BEST” Mac & Cheese in the frozen food section. AND it’s Gluten Free! We should all try to be more gluten free but that’s a talk for another time. I sent them an email 3 years ago to thank them for this yumminess and guess what? They sent me a T-shirt (the little boy in the bow of the boat) with the Beecher’s name on top.
I ran out to the garden and picked a bunch of Sunsugar tomatoes as the “top note.” Super delicious and satisfying.
I’m hearing that denim jackets, timeless in my opinion, are going strong again for the summer. I like what was done here. I never saw the front of this jacket. And I went down many “bunny trails” within PInterest to try and find it.
How could I NOT KNOW THIS great tip! This works for almost all herbs. I was listening to our local radio station, a one minute gardening/cooking commercial twice a week for a health food store. Pick your herbs out of the garden and put them in water and leave them on the counter. Do NOT store them in the fridge. They look pretty until you are ready to use them and WOW it really works. No more turning limp or black thinking the fridge/crisper section is the place to store them. This little bit of Basil above has been in the glass with water for 5 days. It’s even blooming! I know, I know, pinch off the blossoms but I forget to.
Whoo Hoo! My big project for the week. I bought this at a thrift shop at least 15 years ago. It has always been a size too big but I don’t like tight fitting anything in the summer. I love the fabric (a jacquard by the way, 100% cotton, and beautiful quality fabric). I also like the design of the dress and the color. What exactly did I do to this dress since I liked it so much the way it is? Ha, ha, I shortened it! This is actually the 2nd time I have shortened it. It is now tunic length so I can wear white leggings underneath. Sadly, “ye olde” varicose veins are really showing these days. I would have put it on and shown you what I mean, but oh dear, I’m being extra lazy today. I know, I’ll wear this to church on Sunday. I’ll post it on Instagram about noontime.
Check out these pockets! I pushed the belt up a bit so you could see that they are in-seam (as in the waist, not the usual side seam) pockets.
So sleek and smooth. I MUST find a way to put these in another garment.
Gorgeous piping detailing.
Malia of Honolulu. I looked it up. This one is considered a “vintage” dress. I also went to Etsy just for kicks and typed in Malia, Honolulu. Wow, there were a bunch advertised as “Vintage” and prices all over the map. Maybe you have a dress you like to wear but the length doesn’t suit you anymore. Easy peasy for a whole new look.
There is nothing like picking veggies from the garden in either the cool of the morning or just at dusk. There are cucumbers under there too. Ha, ha, of course my Ikea colander color coordinates with my favorite hand crocheted (not by me but I could have I tell ya’) tank top. Have a great weekend everyone and make MORE time for what you love to do! All the other weekend chores can wait. Hugs, Heidi
