Backstage Ballerinas

My daughter recently had her end of the year ballet recital. Here is a peek at what the tiny dancers do to pass the time while waiting for their turn on stage. Color. Who knew? Why was this never the subject of a Degas painting? It's perfect. I hope this urge to color lasts for a few more years... I don't know if text messaging will look as adorable.

God Bless Texas

As if Texans didn't have enough to be proud of with their Blue Bell ice cream, now they can boast about having California style cupcakes right in their own backyard. We took a little road trip to Dallas and happily stumbled upon this Sprinkles shop. I just about died from the excitement! I had that whole "country mouse goes to the city" experience, so I thought I would share.
This is what the selection looked like...Heaven. I took one Lemon Coconut and a Key Lime to go. Delicious! They even sell bottled Coca Cola. And yes, a bottle of ice cold Coke is the perfect chaser for two decadent cuppy cakes. Trust me.
And what was even nicer was the staff. They were super sweet and let me take these pictures to share. Loved it!

Peely Pink

I've had this pink chair for years. I don't know if you can actually tell that it's pink from this shot, but trust me it's a lovely shade of chippy pink up close. It serves no purpose whatsoever, as the seat is mostly splinters, but I love it anyway. Everyone needs a pink chair in their garden, useless or otherwise. Don't you agree?

Water, water everywhere...

My Sweetie often accuses me of watering the yard too much. Let me rephrase that. My husband says I waste water. To be perfectly honest, he does not have an issue with me watering the grass, but he does freak out when I inadvertently water the sidewalk, the neighbor's yard, the street, etc. Hey, I can't help it if occasionally the wind picks up and sends the water intended for our grass over to Mr. Crankenberry's yard next door, or if the water pressure suddenly changes and causes the sprinkler to shoot out a long continual drink to the asphalt. I am however taking a closer look at how much water I actually have been using after discovering random patches of the above flirty fungus sprinkled throughout the yard. Shhhh... please don't say anything to my Sweetie, and maybe he won't notice. Hopefully a roving band of gnomes won't tip him off either.

Pink Picks

I'm working on a little project that is going to require a lovely shade of pink paint. I have narrowed it down to three choices, but I am having a difficult time deciding which to select. Maybe I should pick based on best paint color name... Okay, that doesn't help much either as it is a two way tie between "Merry Pink" and "Child's Play". Which is your favorite?

Happy Day!
