Summer Bracelet Winner Announced

Thanks for participating in my little giveaway and for visiting FabFashion. I'm delighted to announce the winner...

Let's try that again...

Elizabeth said: 

Hi Vee, 
I love your bracelet the colors are really pretty! 
I went over to visit FabFashion Bracelets and I really love the idea of the Magnetic Bracelet, it sure would be easier to put on alone with out any help. I always have to have Gary help me put on a bracelet. Who ever receives a bracelet will be one very lucky girl..
Have a sweet day, Elizabeth

Now I am glad to know that soon Elizabeth will be able to wear a bracelet whether or not Gary's available. 

Curious about what Elizabeth chose? See it for yourself right *here.*


I'm afraid that I'm out again today. Happy Canada Day weekend to all my Canadian friends!

Short and Sweet

~Soggy Morning Flowers~

Free Printable Bunting for Canada Day — so cute!

Free Printable Independence Day Bunting — so cute!

Speaking of which, I've seen a number of flags in town and across the internet improperly displayed. (This MSN photo was snagged over Memorial Day.) The field of stars is always at the top left when the flag is displayed as a banner. This is true outdoors and indoors.

~Not This Way!~

My Winner will be announced tomorrow! Giveaway closes tonight at 7 Eastern Standard Time. Wander around a bit; you'll find that post. =D

In the Good Old Summer Time...Right

 ~Pretty Yard~

Gosh, we're in another nasty weather pattern that will bring rain and thundershowers for today through Wednesday. It's almost impossible to get on the computer so I am probably signing off after this post until this latest nasty system has moved on. And, yes, wouldn't it be wonderful if rain were more equitably shared? I know that many of you would so appreciate some water. I, on the other hand, am dealing with a wet basement and mold everywhere so it is not pleasant. We are longing for two days in a row of sun.

We did enjoy a splendid sunny Sunday! Every time the weather forecasters say that it will rain all week but be good on the weekend and then add that that's all people care about anyway, I could scream. Yup, I am getting a titch testy. ;> Feel free to share any weather complaints that you may have. We'll call this post weather vent central.


In other news: Last week I received a most interesting phone call...

I: Hallo! (Just practicing my German.)

Caller: I'd like to set up a date with you.

I: (aside) John, there's someone on the line who wants a date with me!

Caller: (chuckles)

I: May I ask who's calling?

Caller: (more chuckles) It's Sam.

I: Sam? Are you bored already? When did you get out of school?

Caller Sam: I think just before noon last Tuesday.

I: All righty then. When?

Sam: Does Tuesday sound good to you?

And so Tuesdays will be our new day for now and tomorrow is Tuesday. What can I do with a grandson on a rainy day that will be any fun at all? Hmmm...must put on my thinking cap. Any suggestions? Time spent with grands is special indeed and there will come a day when the phone won't ring. Mindful of that, I so welcome these days.

Leaving you with a sweet little arrangement found last Saturday, though I don't recall when we had only 12 states...nothing like creative license. The 4th of July is just around the corner!

So I'll catch you when I can. If you haven't signed up for the giveaway yet, check back a few posts. A  new summer bracelet is a very good thing.

Parade and Roses~Mosaic Monday

Our town had a parade yesterday morning replete with a bounce house on the lawn, Highlanders marching playing the bagpipes, vintage cars, and cotton candy for sale. The timing was just right because thunderstorms blew in by afternoon and stayed all night.  I rescued my three little roses freshly bloomed and now they bloom on my kitchen windowsill. Just a few little scenes from the parade with the roses tucked in. 

Check in with Mary at Little Red House for more mosaics. It's always fun!

Have a great week...

And God Said It Was Beautiful

When God called all that He had made "good" in Genesis 1, the Hebrew word used is "tobe," which can also be translated "beautiful" because tobe means good in the widest possible sense of the word. Read Genesis 1 today, if you catch a moment, and every time you see where God says "it is good" try "it is beautiful."

Many blessings this Sunday!
