It's Cherry Blossom Time!

It's Cherry Blossom Time here in Middle Georgia!! The Cherry Blossom Festival began last weekend in Macon and lasts until this Sunday. They call it the Pinkest Party on Earth! This year the trees seemed like they were going to bloom early. Spring came sooner than normal. But they waited like they should and bloomed just in time!

Just a reminder of the life so far of my cherry it is when it was just 1 year old in 2007. No blooms...look how young Skippy is...

Now it is taller than the house...and only 5 years old!! They say it has to get older before it has more blooms... I wish I hadn't planted it so close to the porch...but the porch wasn't there yet! I did plant a new one last year during Cherry Blossom time! Hopefully it will grow just as just big!

There is a disturbance in the force..... Beau has decided to take his nap this afternoon in the bottom of the perch! Sweet Mama got this for him and Bella two years ago. Both have sat on the top but no one EVER cared about the bottom cave underneath. Until Now!!!

I guess it was the noise of a neighbor cutting the grass today or the stress of the minor home repair work we had done this week. Or maybe it's the full moon...I don't know. But Beau decided this was his new nap
Who know if he will be there tomorrow afternoon.
I'll let you know!

Happy St Patrick's Day!

Happy St Patrick's Day!!

This is a reminder that St Patrick's Day is for parties and parades! Sadly I am in Central Georgia and it is just another day... I must remember days gone the time I was in the Savannah Georgia Parade. It was fun...even though it was raining!
Ahhhh good times!

May the luck of the Irish be with you this fine day!

Plus Size Apron Now Available!!

Finally!! Plus Size Aprons in my shop! This is the first one Blue Chocolate Flowers! It is a larger version of one of my most popular aprons! You can see the listing in my shop here It is a little bit longer than the original but just as cute!

Because my mannequin is on the small side, I had to come up with a better way to show the apron. I didn't want to have a skinny girl wearing an apron that didn't fit her! After some thought Sweet Mama suggested that we go to Goodwill and see if we could find a winter vest. You know the puffy kind... Which I did and put it on the mannequin backwards. It has adjustable drawstrings on the bottom sides that you can make tighter... so you won't freeze. That was great because once each side was tightened the vest was shorter and not hanging out the bottom of the overshirt. Sweet Mama's best friend is big busted and she donated an old bra! It took some trial and error to get it just right...but voila! What do you think?! I think she might need a different shirt but for now is perfect! I am adding more aprons like this one to the shop in different fabrics. Ruffle and Half aprons coming soon!

I think everyone should have a pretty apron!
