Summer Gardening

Here are a few pictures taken around our garden this morning.

All of these plants are mostly drought tolerant and require very little water.  About 95% of the time I water them with water collected with our rain barrels. I can't believe everything has stayed so green during the summer.  Thanks for stopping by!

Captain America

Sometimes I get requests that I never could have dreamed up.  A friend asked me if I could make a zipper pouch for her grown son with Capitain America fabric... 

Well here it is....  I've since discovered this Capitain America guy is pretty popular and I am seeing comic stuff at many different stores.  Who would have thought?
This pouch like all of the others are available in my Etsy store.   Thanks for stopping by.

American Girl Trip

Our dear friends from Arkansas visited this week.  One of the things we did was take the daughters to the American Girl store in the Dallas Galleria.  Micaela and Madeline has a wonderful time (and so did us Mommies).
Our girls are growing up and days like this one when we put them in matching outfits are very numbered.  Here is a collage with pictures we have taken over the last 9 years--- they are growing up too fast.  

We had a wonderful time.  Hope you are having a great week. 

Leadership McKinney

I am so excited.  I have been chosen to be part of the Leadership McKinney Class of 2015.  We just had our orientation and took our first class picture.  I am truly honored to be a part of this group.
