Hello my dear bloggies.
It's been another beautiful weekend here in the desert.
Blue skies, really cool and comfortable temps.
I can honestly say I was beside myself with glee.
Art-wise I finished up a swap that had the theme
"Coming Up Roses"
Still in the Marie Antoinette mode,
I gathered a rose themed collection of items
and then embellished a round box to hold it all.

I apologize here that the font is going wonky
I cannot make it all one size.
It goes from huge to tiny then tinier
Off it went to the secret partner
As I was looking at my collection of photos,
I remembered this little morsel I put together for a swap
back around Valentines Day
Little bon-bon cups.
We were partnered up and the gal I was to create for
is head-over-heels in love with pink
So I fru-fru'd and pinked up this little gem
and included a few truffles from our local shop
It's pretty dangerous to have such a fabulous
chocolate factory so close to home!
I can tell you that their chocolate covered toffee
is the best I've ever, ever had!
(psssst...they do mail order if you are craving it)
Not much else is going on here at the nest
le chat is behaving
is happily swimming in his little world
at the DOD
which makes me smile when the drama begins
and it ALWAYS begins.
Mr. J. has been very busy with our cafe
as it is high season for Snow Birds
I am delighted that on Sunday and Monday
he closes at 4:00 and we have a few hours together
tonight = Chinese and the second disc of the first season of
Totally awesome series by Showtime starring Edie Falco
That's it for now
I wish you all a week filled with joy
and the company of those you love
