Today was another beautiful Pacific Northwest Day. The sky was blue, the sun was shining, the hummingbirds are zipping around the feeders.
It was a bright yellow lemon kind of day, a little sweet and a little sour.
I was delighted to receive a beautiful Easter card from one of my favorite bloggers, Lisa of Suburban Retreat. Lisa is truly one of the sweetest people I have had the pleasure to meet through blogging!
You may have remembered me mentioning Lisa, I met her on my trip to Toronto and I was fortunate enough to have won her beautiful and thoughtful winter/Christmas giveaway.
And speaking of giveaways, in today's mail I also received this gorgeous burlap table runner from Sharon at Elizabeth & Co. I won this in her recent giveaway! I'm feeling pretty lucky!
Her blog is wonderful and has the sweetest stories on how the name, Elizabeth & Co., came to be.
Elizabeth & Co. for the "how to"... isn't that sweet?
And I cannot, not mention another sweet. Vanessa at This & That. She lives in Auburn with her husband and little dog, Claire. She just published a post about being in the most recent Better Homes and Gardens magazine!
Check it out on the last page...
sweet! And I love her blog. She is one of the first blogs I followed, I found her when I was researching butcher block counters... they have installed them not once, but twice!
And finally, the sour. Our yellow lab, Cady, got her tail in the door on Saturday. We went to the vet yesterday and today they had to remove the end of her tail. She lost part of the end bone in the door and then had an exposed wound that would not have been able to heal so the vet removed that part of the tail at the next "space". Dog tails are made up of many bones, kind of like our fingers.
She's now at home resting comfortably and I'm sure she'll be back to her usual sweet and sour self soon!
