A new, and welcome, backyard resident...
and a newly graduated, now-high-schooler!
I'm proud of my boy Ben, who was the only 8th grader to score 100% on the Geometry final. He also went (kicking and screaming) to the Dance after his graduation ceremony; he reports that all he did there was eat. (And, if you'd seen the dresses those 8th grade girls were wearing, you would know I was rather glad to hear it!)
In other news, I took my very first foray into burlap. Above is the "before" of the pillow I made from a vintage linen...
...here is the "after."
I kind of like it.
It's Memorial Day weekend. Ben's sleeping in, and after I do some stuff around the house I hope to take him out to a movie to celebrate his first day of summer vacation! We're going to have our good friends over for a cookout tomorrow, as we're expecting weather in the 70's. I would also like to hit a flea market tomorrow if I have time; that's about it over here. What are your plans?
