Totally Toadstools

I got my toadstool!! isn't she just lovely?






Thanks to Clare who was my trade partner, all the way from the u.k.





Very simple, but really pretty darn cute.


Check out the sparkly top:











I thought that in the kitchen transom window above the french doors would be a great place for it. Now Meli has a shady soft place to lean up against.





I keep all my little "collections" above in the window. Little things i have collected and liked and they look ok in the window. At christmas time i found the sign above them all. Fitting.








I guess i should put some pictures of the family there too.....






Now for the award
Thanks Julie... now, i don't usually follow the rules---i think that has become expected of me...not too....but we'll go over the rules anyways. you can see how many i break.

The rules that apply to this award are as follows:


1. You have to pick 5 blogs that you consider deserving of this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and also contribute to the blogging community, no matter what language.


2. Each award has to have the name of the author and a link to his/her blog to be visited by everyone.


3. Each award winner has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that presented her/him with the award.


4.The award winner and one who has given the prize have to show the link of "Arte y Pico" blog so everyone will know the origin of this award.


5. To show these rules.

my 5 people i have chosen. i don't know that many well enough to choose 5. i linger on a lot of blogs, but don't know if i can pass the buck on. anyways....here they are:
1) vintage fern.... have done a trade with her, lovely stuff...and i won something too. more lovely stuff.
2) The boiled peanut ---randomly found her. she works for girl scouts though...that is the connection...i felt it. :) love the self-portrait thing going on. might have to try that. maybe not as long.
3)polka-dot creations ...has wonderful kookie taste (just as daring as me, maybe with a little better taste though). is currently doing the vintage sheet swap.
4) Quiltville -- she is my idol right now. teaches, makes patterns, sews alot, and a bunch of scrappy stuff too. mostly scrappy.
5) covered in threads -- she makes wonderful clutches and sell A TON of them on etsy. funny too.

hey- i really did do 5!! yay for me. check them out.
They will probably not care or pay attention to this award. but you never know i guess.
Fun to see who are my really favorites are though. Julie you would have been one, but it was from you....no give backs.

I am still quilting that darn hens and checks quilt. I think i only have one more row or something, but i just can't seem to do it. Maybe this weekend.

Thursday we are going up to my moms for a sleepover. The golfers get up at the crack of dawn on the 4th and go ....golfing. We sleep in just a bit and then head down to grandmas for breakfast when everyone trickles in. Fun stuff. we do a little crafty project...eat breakfast, play in the water (little pool things for the kids) and then eat some lunch...sweat outside and then take off late afternoon.
We all enjoy ourselves and so do the kids.
Just sit around, gab, eat, sweat....whatever

Fun Family Stuff
