Daisies and Buttercups .....and some front porch sittin'















Good Sunday afternoon Blogland Neighborhood! Well, it's a BEAUTIFUL day here at MBIAJ Headquarters! Not much going on since last week's big blog party giveaway (...dead silence .....cue crickets .......) Anyhow, now that all the excitement has come to a screaching halt (and Kitty's head has returned to it's normal size) we're trying to chill out and get into our laid back summer routine .....Kitty put on her sunglasses and sun hat and went for a walk earlier today to pick those pretty daisies and buttercups (hopefully from along the road and NOT from somebody's yard !)




....so, we stuck them in a mason jar and .........





...decided to sit out here on the front porch for a little while and work on some stitching that has been sitting around collecting dust since last summer !! (our goal is to finish it BEFORE it disintigrates!)

......oh....by the way ...... notice anything NEW ? hmmmmmm???? How about those jazzy new polka dot sidebars ?!?!?!!!! The MBIAJ Blog Design Dept thought it was about time to do a little sprucing up around here, so they put on their thinking caps and actually read some directions and put those polka dots on all by themselves (mostly because "tech support" .....i.e. the teenage Moonbeam Boys ....are out of town racing their dirtbikes today) .... so the MBIAJ Blog Design Dept had to fly by the seat of their pants and work without a net on this one ...... they're pretty full of themselves right now .....so lets not mention to them that those black bows need to be moved over somehow ..... darned if we know how to do that!!!

Edit: Well, whatdaya know.....they moved those black bows out and added some pink squiggles instead ..... mainly because they couldn't figure out how to move the black bows....

Anyhow, hope you're all enjoying this lovely Sunday afternoon! Time for us to haul ourselves off of the porch and get to that pile of laundry and then head to the grocery store before the Moonbeams Boys get home later today and announce, once again, that there's NOTHING GOOD TO EAT around here!

Be back soon!
Toodles,
Mary Anne (aka Mare)

I am so glad Miss Kitty is wearing a sunhat and sunglasses!!! She must protect herself from the sun's harmful rays. Good job on the blog background......

I love daisies and buttercups. They look so pretty in your mason jar.

I love the new look. It looks so Lucy and Ethel and then again it reminds me of Victoria's Secret with the black and pink. I'm sure Miss Kitty loves that idea!

Love the new "look!" I'm a big fan of both "paink" and "polka dots :)" If you want the polka dots to show up "everywhere," you can change your layout to "Denim," and wha la :) IMHO, it looks perfect just like it is tho :) Love the Daisies too! They are my all time favorite, as they were my Daughter's all time favorite :)
