“Let us dance in the sun, wearing wild flowers in our hair...”

tea.

tea in the afternoon.

Worked in the garden today and everything is planted, except for a few herbs I still need to plant in pots. I'm worried about the deer and other little creatures feasting over my garden before I can enjoy its produce. Any tips on keeping deer away (chemical-free)? I heard something about mixing eggs with water or spreading hair clippings around the garden. Hm... I almost don't care if anything grows in my garden so long as my tomatoes produce tons of fruit. Seriously, doesn't this look like heaven? I cannot wait to make this with my heirloom tomatoes.

I'm thinking of following the crowd and purchasing a pair of saltwater sandals. It's been kind of a big thing for the last few years in blog world. They kind of have that grandma look to them, which is SO me. plus they are within my price range. And seeing as I cannot really afford the $200+ sandals that continue to catch my eye, I think maybe this would be a more sensible pair to invest in. What do you think? What are you wearing on your feets this summer?

Last night I found this really cute movie with Bette Davis and George Brent, from the 1930s. It's really really cute. Plus there is a scene where Bette is wearing the most adorable floral bathing suit. And it got me to thinking about reproducing a similar version. Possibly for sale? But HOW on earth am I going to find time to make suits for sale before the season is over? Anna dear, you just have way too many ideas and not enough time.

Thank you, Amy for the lovely blog award! You are too sweet. :) I'm not very good at these bloggy awards, so instead of following the rules (I'm kind of a rebel like that) I'll just say, thank you. It means a lot. I love receiving all of your comments and I love reading your blogs as well. You all are super great. Hope the rest of your week is splendiferous!

  3. Well, whatever you decide about the suit, I'm sure you'll have better luck selling hers than his!
