a medley of things...

first off... my computer has been actin' a fool... a p.c. that's on it's last legs for sure... she's been a good one... however, it now takes me F O R E V E R to upload photos... the tower sounds like it's about to take off at any moment... when i click on something it just swirls and swirls... the screen freezes... ugh! i've been working on this post for 56 minutes now and this is where i'm at... you get the idea... 

that's why i haven't posted as much this month... it's been driving me crazy... so... this post will be a medley of things...
 a happy day surprise from my mom... {you can see more on that here and here...}

 a little close up...
a wire tray... holding a new piece of milk glass & some pretty vine and flowers from her yard.. and a copy of mingle... {i'm pretty certain i have a fancy magazine problem}...

******** 

 stopped at the store yesterday... AND there they were... in all their blue glory on one of target's enticing end caps...
even though the color is more blue than i thought they'd be... i still felt compelled to bring home a box... into the cart they went... 

********

we're heading into the busy end of the year stuff... maizie had her 5th grade orchestra concert last week...
i can't believe how much she's learned and how far she's come with the cello this year... she loves it and says that it's something she wants to continue... i'm pretty happy about that... all of the kids did a fantastic job that night...

********

we spent mother's day at my mom's house... 
we were going through some old pictures and had some laughs...
 anyone else remember sportin' the sponge rollers back in the day?

********
 john and the girls surprised me with a new plant for mother's day... meet sister therese... the white hydrangea...
so, so pretty!

********

and miss marina is reading up a storm... 
she read the best nest to me last night... it's still my fave...

********

did you know oopsie maizie has a facebook page? if you'd like, you can follow along on there, too... just type oopsie maizie into the search and click "like"...


********

and before i forget... i just want to take a quick sec to thank all of you who are taking time out of your busy days to read this little blog of mine... i appreciate your comments and kind words... they completely make my day!!!

have a happy day~

Ugh! I hate computers!! Especially when they give me problems. Love the medley - I just saw the blue glass at Target today and considered buying some but didn't (I will probably be back to grab it soon!) Hope you have a great weekend!

Yikes- computer issues. Just retired my ancient PC laptop, not by choice :( Sharing a Mac with my Honey and learning a whole new system...it's kind of fun.

Oooh, love the blue Ball jars- need to check my Target!

Awhile back I found some of the sponge rollers (at Target) and have used them a couple times on my daughter. Brings back memories :)

Again, gorgeous girls!

Off to find and "like" your FB page :)
