And, just like that...

summer seems to have arrived in Southeastern Colorado!  I'm just going to go ahead and call it summer because we didn't have anything resembling Spring here, and I'm over it.  These lilacs are the first color in my garden this year -- if you don't count my bulbs' failed, brave attempts at blooming through the late snow and cold!
I see sunny skies ahead!  So does Little Bo Peep.  Funny story: I found this planter at an estate sale Thursday, just after conversing with Magpie Ethel about favorite nursery rhyme characters.  Hers is Humpty Dumpty, mine is Bo Peep.
What a coincidence, huh?  There was nothing else like this at the sale, so I think it was meant for me.
I was invited to the sale by my friend Kathy.  Kathy always has the BEST junk and she loves everything I love, too; I met her at one of our local antique fairs. And look what she had waiting for me (above)!
She's after my own heart!
gorgeous vintage apron with satin ribbon trim -- and lace!
sweet vintage greetings

I was so touched by Kathy's generosity -- but not surprised; she is always doing nice things for everyone.  Kathy is so talented and, stay tuned, she will be opening her Etsy shop soon!
This little book -- found at a different estate sale -- has me sighing.





A girl can dream, right?
