Where Does My Time Go???

I'm sure I speak for most of us when I  say that I don't know where the heck the month of May went!  Just a moment ago, it was April.  All good.  Then WAMMO!  My calendar says it is June and double digit June at that!  Well, I guess when I started doing a little retrospective of what I'd been up to, I can see why my time may have gotten away from me.  I've been sewing up a few of these large lavender heart sachet pillows made out of antique European grain sacks for my Etsy shop.  They smell so good and, I might add, would look great with Maria's square lavender grain sack lavender pillows.

I've been busy listing fun things (besides the lavender sachets) as well.  I love this antique wire basket. Almost kept it. 

 These cool Indian clubs were sold within a few hours of listing (means I sold them too cheap more than likely, but oh well...).

I was fairly busy with helping out with my 5th grader's Shakespeare play, "As You Like It".  The kids did so great.  Pardon the blurry picture, but I haven't quite gotten the hang of photographing stage performances.

Never thought I'd see the day when I got to put makeup on my kid and his friends.  They were really good sports though.  I think they were really committed to the production and knew that stage makeup was just part of the deal. My little man didn't need mascara because he has the most amazing naturally dark and super long eyelashes.  SO not fair.

Then there was graduation day.  My big boy is now a middle schooler.  I'm not sure I'm ready for this, but I think he is. He and his friends clean up nice, don't they?

Then there's my youngest little one.  Some things just defy explanation.  And for the record, he did this to himself.  AND he is still smiling.  That's my boy!

Then there's the impending mutha of all yard sales next weekend followed by our garden which is going to be on a local garden tour the following weekend (Mr. FL has been working very hard to get ready; I'll have to take some pictures and post them soon).  We spent all day getting the covered porch opened up for the season last week.  So much work but we've been in heaven enjoying being out there.

There's also been a few little DIY projects, not really worth mentioning, but time consuming nonetheless.  So that's my story and I'm sticking to it.  I can't wait to have some free time to catch up on my blogging, but the project list for this summer is lengthy and then I would like to spend a little time enjoying the monkeys while they are out of school, so I may be in and out, but I will catch up when I can.

Until next time,

I'm linking up to Debra's Vintage Inspiration Friday.  I can't miss a good party, busy or not!
