Tuesday with a Twist - Happy August!

Our News This Week...  The kiddos are in full  "Back to School"  swing.  The list of school supplies has been purchased along with some cute clothes and new shoes.  Our daughter asked me to help corral little girls on their clothes shopping trip.  We had a great time!  I whipped together a nap mat cover for the youngest.  It's really just a large pillow case and very quick to sew.  If you need one, too, just take a pillow case pattern (click HERE for mine) and adjust the measurements to the mat.

These photos are of crinum lilies.

We are technically just a smidge too north for these beauties, but they are planted in a protected area and they are thriving.  Aren't they pretty?

Every Monday there's a party here called You're the Star.  If you have time, please join the fun!

And now for today's party!
