Things I love........



*ivy on the walls. My neighbors are having a wedding soon. This is the ivy that greets me from across the street. I love ivy. (wrigley ivy mostly,) This growth is pure angel. I have to call my neighbor b/c I believe it is a gift from her little niece who died of a brain tumor. Thanks little Emily, I will make sure Auntie Jule sees it. And you great mom Katie too.

okay now, put away the tissues.

I also love

*hearts. I collect them . My engagement diamond is a heart.

* Closeknits in Evanston. Great sweet little shop. Sweet people work there.

*The new GPS system that finds such places for me. (recalculating recalculating)

*What this woman did with a unsure baby gift is something i love: go see at Knitabulous.blogspot.com

*The beautiful dreamy sight: Cakespy.com

*Equestrian, Olympic style.


I'll talk to you in the comments. :)

I love me some Olympics Equestrian... too bad that NBC isn't showing it all....

I think I might need to make a cowl. I think it might be catchy.

I love ivy also and it's a good thing because the entire front of our house is covered with it. The ivy was there when we bought the house and is growing into the brick so I guess it will stay.

Love the ivy! Now I am going to look at cakespy - cake in any form is something I can totally get behind. I think I want cake to be my hobby.

I have a couple of photos of hearts in nature; I need to post them. Some day. I've started to see hearts everywhere.

Beautiful!
