My dear Martha and Mila arrived yesterday from Boston. They're here this time for an entire week. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!! So happy!

P.S.: Thank you for all of the sweet anniversary comments :) :) :) xoxoxoxoxo


Joyous!!! Isn't this the best summer, Alicia? We are having a wonderful time with family and friends on our side of Portland, too. Blessings to you and yours,
Gracie xx

Enjoy! Love the photos.

Have a wonderful time. I am fascinated by that photo of the bowl of seed beads!

You're going to have great fun.

A week full of fun ahead I am sure.
Thank you for posting that delightful Maileg kitten.
I just had to find one and he arrived in a beautiful dark grey with a red checkered bandana to our home.

Oooo, that bowl of sequins is giving me heart palpitations! Time to start planning for Christmas!!!
Also, my girl has the same colour of amber necklace and I recently got one to match...why did I wait so long!!! We get comments on our matching necklaces all the time, and I just about bust with pride each time!

An instant friend for Amelia! Hope you have a wonderful week - your pictures are always so inspiring.

Our family is coming in two weeks...from Portland and other regions. I adore summer and it's opportunities to be with loved ones.


Aaaarrghhhh! You didn't say whatcher doin' with the beads! Whatcha doin'? Whatcha doin'?

Loved your photos Alicia...especially the one where it kind of looks like you (or your friend) are watering your prettiest flower--beautiful, amazing, little Amelia:)
Have a wonderful time with your friends-enjoy your summer!

I love your house.

Have loads of fun with your dear friends. :)
