Well, my parents are visiting for the weekend. Not only is Dad going the help Hubby build some shelves for the basement and a raised garden for our back yard, Mom is going to help me with the front garden area...and they're bringing their new Golden puppy, Gaelen (his name is Celtic for "tranquil", a state of being which he has not yet reached). Ben is looking forward to meeting his young uncle. ;) I'll be whipping up some tomatillo-sauced enchiladas for supper tomorrow, too. Good times! But that also means that I need to post early tonight, since the fam will be here within a couple of hours and there's still a lot to be done.
Yesterday, these somehow-sophisticated squirrel earrings were featured on Etsy's front page, probably resulting in smitten folks all over the place. Aren't these wonderful? It's terrific to see something as whimsical as a squirrel dressed up with black damask, because it's unexpected and fun. The squirrels are actually clear plastic and hand-drawn (yes, hand-drawn!). The owls are the same, and you can acquire these for a friend or yourself for just $10. From BirdUncaged.
Do have a wonderful weekend!
