THIS AND THAT MONDAY


My friend, Jessica surprised me today with a vile of homemade vanilla extract.  It smells wonderful.  Can't wait to use some of it. 

I'm almost finished with the dish cloths for the family Easter Baskets.  One more in green. 

Found some new sandals for summer in silver and bling!!



Looking for the perfect dress for Monique's wedding was NOT easy.  I was hoping for a pretty rose color...and found the perfect color in the bottom right picture...but it was SHORT~~ like knee length and that's not me.  

I loved the dress on the top right.  Layers of soft material, beautiful spring colors...but it was too "busy" and SHORT and I do not wear short.  I'm a gypsy at heart, and needed something at least tea length or long.  

Then I tried on this lavender dress.  One piece but looks like two, tea length and fully lined.  Even has some "sparkles" ~ so rather than look further...I bought it and both my granddaughter and daughter are happy with my choice.  Now I have to decide if I will wear pearls or bling..HaHa  (Guess you know by now I like "bling"

I'm so glad to have that crossed off my list!  I just need to find the right shoes and I'm done!

  1. I'm so glad guys can wear a suit. LOL. I saw the Dodgers play last year in St. Louis, my hometown. Had great seats and the Cardinals won. :-)

    1. I really do like the lavender color. It actually looks better on than the Rose dress I tried.
      I've never seen "homemade" vanilla, so I'm anxious to use it. Will let you know!!

  6. What a pretty color. Like the sandals, can't stand sandals that go between my toes.

    1. Janet, these sandals actually do go between my toes, but at an angle that is very comfortable.

    And I'm with you on the bling.
    I always liked those dishcloths. I should make some. I do make my potholders with the loom thing-y and loops.
