Pure Summer Delight.

I have to admit that I am sometimes
not the biggest fan of summer.
It's hot, I wilt, I wallow, I wonder
if it will ever end.
But...LOOK! what wonders
all that sun and summertastic
delight brings!

Our raspberries are the best they have
EVER been, and our sweet pea stand
just keeps going.

With bowls and vases filled with
summer's wonderful delights,
life feels full, fragrant and delicious.

Crafty Folks I Love: Bonnie Jones

Last weekend I set up at the Craft-In sale at the
Newberg 99W Drive In Movie Theatre.
It was a very slow day...but I met Bonnie,
and that definitely made the day FANTASTIC.

Here is some of her work:

She finds old Journals and notebooks to
put in luscious settings,
full of color and beauty.

Aren't these hankies filled with
spooky wonderful delight?

I am an handkerchief collector,
and would love these above my dresser.

And all seems right in the world when you
look at something on a clothesline.
Can you believe that when I was in the
7th grade, a girl in my class
had no idea what a clothesline was!?
I was flabbergasted to say the least.

Find more of Bonnie's work on her website:

and on her blog,
which is full of inspiration:

Just finished this little quilt
for a baby on the way.
Great friends of mine are
in the final few weeks count down
until their baby is born.
The big question...

Will he have red hair?
Can't wait to find out!

Go visit the wonderful women at Bolt
to find the yummy yardage
used in this project.
