UPDATE


My little break,
as I announced it over 10 months ago,
became a little longer than I expected...











I have moved to Buenos Aires, Argentina
and now write most of the time in Spanish
but thanks to Google Translate
you can read about my adventures here down South
by visiting me at

www.ColorinColoradoBlog.Blogspot.com

I would love to "see" you there!

We are on our way to Buenos Aires, Argentina.
We'll be back (well, some of us will....my Son is staying!)
in three weeks...

See you then!

Love is in the air...












Old frames,
once forgotten and left to collect dust in the garage...










are putting me in a "Valentines" frame of mind...












Are you there yet????

White Wednesday...


As you know,
since we decided to move,
shopping is a No-No around here.
Even a very strict rule has been implemented:
if 1 new thing comes in
4 old things have to come out.


Well, I need 4 old things to say good bye to,
because I just couldn't resist this pretty bag
from Janet at Flora Doora!





Her cute, cute bags are lined in plastic perfect to hold fresh flowers...









Jane's motto is:
"Spreading happiness one bag at the time"

She sure was successful this time,
I smile every time I walk by mine...







Hope this day brings you enough reason to smile!
Happy White Wednesday!

New toy....




I've been wanting one of these
for some time now...





the sale at Michael's finally made it possible!!!









My Husband asked me:
"What are you going to do with so many butterflies?"






I have no idea...
but don't they look cute????

Of roses and lizards...








One of the few good things about Winter in So. California
is that the lizards disappear from my backyard
and I finally can venture out and enjoy my morning coffee
without the risk of a heart attack.







I don't have a bid yard,
actually, no yard is big enough for me and lizards.
If they are out, I'm in...simple and clear.









That's why these winter mornings...
warm and oh so missed sunny moments are so enjoyable.
Those moments when the roses let me think
that Spring will soon be here....


those moments when the roses whisper in my ears:
Enjoy us, because the lizards are also coming back soon!
Yikes!!

Enjoy your weekend!

Daydreaming...





The fact that my dreams have been filled with...

and even a little bit of this....

White Wednesday


Many years ago,
more than I care to admit,
I took home this wooden box.
As many pieces that have followed me home,
it came without a purpose or a reason...







I tried to work on it many times,
but it always seemed like a huge work
and I was never able to imagine the final product.








About 5 years ago got a wooden applique
and coats and coats of putty...
only promises, nothing concrete!
3 Wednesdays my wooden box
made the sad trip from the garage to the curve...
and those same nights the trip back to the garage.


Last week it finally happened,
out with the applique,
lots and lots of sanding,
primer
and of course, white paint.






My wooden box and I were re-connecting.

What better way for my transferware collection
to make the trip LA-Buenos Aires
than inside of my very sturdy wooden box?

4...the people embarking in the adventure....










Once we settle,
my wooden box will be perfect as a coffee table...
the move from a 2400 sq. ft. home to an apartment half the size
involves some creative storage!









Thank you Kathleen for White Wednesday!
