How's that for a unique headline? :)
How are you?... seriously how on earth is it Friday again? OH my.....times is just zip, zipping by these days...
Anyhow, it's time for another 5 Fact Friday..... I'm linking up over at Reflection of You. Please feel free to join us... We'd love to have you!
Fact #1. Ben & I came too close to a coyote on the trail this week. We were zipping along... mid-morning bike ride... Ben started zig zagging all over a fielded area....and there it was.... a coyote... It stopped and just kind of stood there...I think Ben had lost sight of it (they sure blend into the environment)... Anyhow, next thing I knew he was running toward it... I started screaming at the top of my lungs... I mean like really SCREAMING..... The coyote stood at the edge of the bush and then disappeared... Ben kept running toward it...got to the edge of the bush then stopped and came back. My heart stopped... sigh.....So scary.
Fact #2. I'm obsessed with gerbera daisies (can you tell?).... I've discovered the smaller ones seem to last longer.... I also love the smaller flower.... Anyhow, my theory is the large ones being heavier make the stems fall? But really, what do I know? :) I bought some at a floral shop once and they wired the stems...and taped them with floral tape....worked great... Anyhow, these smaller ones are holding up quite nicely. :) Yay! Such a happy flower.
Fact #3. I LOVE Sue Bryce! She's on Creative Live this week.... So genius!! I'm going to make one of the backdrops she makes out of poly-styrene...for the white room.... stay tuned.... I'm excited to give it a go.
Fact #4. Brett and Bryce are moving out!! All in the next 2 weeks. Isn't that crazy? Yeesh, they could have staggered it a little....... I can't believe it...It's sure going to be quiet around here...and clean too. :) Honestly I don't think the reality of it all has hit me. Bryce has a job he's really enjoying...and he will have his very own apartment...he's so excited...We're so happy for him! And Brett is moving in with a friend (in a nice antique house) and he's off to University next week.... So much is changing.....
John is going to paint Bryce's room....White of course.... We are going to put a single bed in there instead (for weekend visits/laundry catch up).... This will make more room for maybe a prop chair, table etc.... And Mama will have a north room to use for photo shoots.... woo hoo.... It may be short-lived...cause as Mama's know... they often come back again and again... But what the heck. :) White paint is always a good thing! :)
Fact #5. The beautiful bottle in today's photos.... was a gift from a lovely Behind the Scenes student.... She was soooo very sweet to send me a gift card for Lady of the Lake (my fav shop)... and this is what I picked out.... Isn't it just so lovey? Thank you...sweet sweet you.... I will cherish it...always... xo
