Tea and a Chat...

Hello my lovelies!

Time for tea and a chat.... 

Join me?

I started a new afghan yesterday. It's a granny square with a little
puffy flower in the middle. The squares are small, so it's going to take
a while. 

I'm a afraid you are going to get tired of brown and beige before the 
thing is done. I might be too! :) But for now, I'm excited about it.

It is supposed to rain this weekend, so I'm hoping to get the house
cleaned up and all my chores done so that I work on this all weekend.
Maybe even put on old episodes of Downton Abbey or Mad Men.

Maybe have dinner in the crock pot? 
Doesn't that sound homey? 

What about you? 
What will you be doing this weekend?

I'm joining in for:

Hey There!

Oh Gosh! 
Has it been more than a week since I posted anything? 
Yes... yes it has. Sigh.
I'm sorry.

Any way! 
Here is last week's mani. 
OPI Gouda Gouda Two Shoes
One of my all time favorite colors... EVER! 
One of those great neutral browns that looks good with 

This week is two new Zoya colors.

The light green is called Sage and it is part of the new
line and has a "satin" finish. Not matte and not glossy. 
I'm not in love with it, to be honest. I have a hard time liking
the flat polish and I just love the gloss finishes. 

The dark color is called Remy 
And let me say this is one of the most beautiful polishes I
have ever seen. At one angle it's blue, then teal, then emerald.

I'm pretty sure that I'll be wearing it for St. Patties Day!

A Little Bitty Girl Bear! (easy knit)

Hey there! 
I hope you are having a great week! 

Just thought I would share with you my little bitty
girl bear that I made. I made a little boy version
previously. You can see that here.

I took some along-the-way pictures so you can see how 
I figured it out. It is just a garter stitch with increases, 
decreases, cast on and cast off maneuvers.

I can't really read a knitting or a crochet pattern. 
So it has to be a pretty simple concept for me to get thru it.

As you can see, it is just one piece. 
I knit one side and then when I get to the top of the head, 
I just start the whole thing in reverse.

I'm so happy she turned out. My daughter
wants to give her to one of her friends for 
a shower gift.

Isn't she cute? 
I stood her up next to a coffee cup so you can
see how tall she is.

I mean, look at that face!

I'll be joining 
Cindy for Amaze me Monday
Marty for Inspire Me Tuesday
Brenda for Tweak it Tuesday
Stephanie for Roses of Inspiration

Hydrangea Blue Table Scape

I did it.... 

I went back and forth. 
(inner dialog) ....! .....YES!

I bought some solid blue plates that match my chairs.
They are an exact match! 

They are from Target.  Not a big commitment or investment. 

I love them and I can't wait to have a dinner party to use them.

I did get rid of some plates that I wasn't using anymore. 

That's the house rule: If something new comes in, then something has to go out. 

Anyway, that's my story. :)

SO! Let me ask you:
How do you maintain your hoarding? 

I'll be joining Marty for Inspire me Tuesday
