Monday means . . . The Small Works Weekend Report!


That's the kind of weekend it was.  Among other things, we attended a party that was so lovely it made me realize that I've never actually given a party.  Martha Stewart is still wondering what happened to her invitation.  Someday, perhaps I'll be able to not only spell hors d'oeuvre, but actually make one that looks as beautiful or tastes as good as the ones I consumed by the plateful . . . but probably not.

Entertaining at my house is usually some two liter bottles of soda on the counter next to a plate of chocolate chip cookies.  I only wish I'd had a camera so you could have enjoyed it with me.

(I picked up this one because it reminded me of her)

I also picked up some great buttons, my favorites of which were these turquoise beauties:

And then she packed up my purchases 
in these darling popcorn bags
-- be still my heart!

Jealous yet?!  You should be.  I'm even jealous of myself.  It's almost enough pleasure to make Monday morning with laundry and Monday night with Jillian bearable.

Even a rainy Monday that was supposed to be warm and beautiful but most decidedly is not.

I said almost.

(If anyone wants me, I'll be in the studio playing with my new toys!)
