Summertime And The Living Is Easy

Hope ya'll are having a wonderful first week of summer! The heat has been driving me indoors, except in the early evening. Rachel and I go out each night at twilight to watch the dance of the fireflies! They are just magical, and I don't think I'll ever get tired of watching them. I have been spending some time in my studio working on pillows for Rachel's pink room. The first one is made with little ruffles...
The second one... And the third, I couldn't resist using the pink ric-rac trim! Rachel was given a promotion at work on Monday - Congratulations to her for all her hard work! Being her proud mama and all, I just couldn't help but give her these!
Pink roses for a pink girl! You should smell the roses! Amazing, since most roses are bred without any fragrance nowadays.

Well, I'm off to exercize and then my morning mocha soy latte.
Hope ya'll have a wonderful day.
Hugs,
Victoria Lynn

You are such a sweet mom to buy roses for your Rachel. Sounds like she has a great work ethic. I love the pillows. You did such a great job!! The chandelier is beautiful. I can't wait to see the room when complete. The teasers are great!!

We are just not warming up here. I'm enjoying it, so far.
I love the pillows you made, especially the pink ones with the ruffles.
Congrats to Rachel on her promotion. I am wondering if this is the job she got last year when she got her little red car. (i hope my memory is right...about the car color)

I love the pillows they are beautiful, you make such lovely things.

XO,
Your BFF

Thanks y'all for your kind words! :~)

And thanks for my beautiful roses, Mum. I'll sad that they're dying now but they were gorgeous while they lasted!

As for the fireflies...to think a month ago we despaired of ever seeing one this year.

Love you,
Rach :~)
