  • one finished Cockatoo - now to finish the cushion.  Love how this bird has turned out.
  • a postcard sent by my flickr friend Emma from Italy - I remember sitting at the bottom of these steps many years ago - eating my lunch and watching the world go by.
  • using up some of the abundant celery from garden in this soup.
  • glorously bright green and gold leaves on one of my geraniums.
Hoping you all had a wonderfully relaxing weekend too.


  1. That cockatoo is GORGEOUS! Julie you so rocked this one! It is ever so lovely and whimsical all at the same time! And that foliage of your geranium reminds me of why I love the garden...beautiful weekend! Here is to a great week! Nicole xo

  2. Italy, how fun!!

    Soup sounds so good, I can not wait for Autumn so I can start to cook up some soup. Soup is one of our favorite meals.
    Fun photos today.
    Thank you,
