And I do too! 


  1. Hi, Marie! It's great to catch up with you finally, having been less online for some days. :) Those stripy mitts are fun! I just LOVE white in a garden, it probably my favorite color to garden with, and hoping to add more to ours this summer! You don't see a lot of white flowers here at garden centers, mostly daisies, so it could be a challenge! LOVE that zinc container pond too. Vinegar is our go-to for weed control... it helps, most of the time. Those Lego pets are cute! Such pretty crochet patterns and ideas...that halfmoon shawl is lovely. WOW... those teepee cookies are amazing--almost too elaborate to eat! And how cute those sugar wafer dresses--folks are sooo clever! That 60-Day Toss challenge is interesting! I really need to weed through digital stuff mostly. :/ Hoping you all have a good weekend ahead... LOVE YOU SOOO MUCH, mu friend!! :))) ((LOVE & BIG HUGS))

    1. Ahh Tracy, so happy you are feeling heaps better! Whenever I see an all white garden I think of the day we spent together at Sissinghurst! Such fun! Love you oodles also my friend! xoxo

  2. I'll come back for the list:) Fun things..always Marie! Thank you:)
