I have been super busy over here, gearing up for Fall & Winter.  I love my new flannels...

And my MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) group starts soon and I'm in charge of centerpieces, so we decided to paint hatboxes and cover the tops with fabric.
And you know when you ask me to do anything decorative it will always involve jewel tones (well, and fabric)...

I'm off to Eileen's tomorrow to take pictures of some the new stuff I'm putting in the Shop.  I always love going way out there to Eileen's house because she lives in the "real" country---where there are horses, big barrels of hay, barns, and men in overalls.   It reminds me that I really do live in Texas.

Because Gideon got some virus that's going around (high fever, no other symptoms at all), we spent all day Sunday indoors.

I played with fabric paint & dye:

And Gideon did what Gideon does best.  He ate:

Oh and he threw a ceramic mug at my ankle.  And broke the skin & a big blood vessel.  Cabin fever is an understatement.

And because I talk about such things here, I must tell you that since my mother's visit in May (which always includes our traditional mani-pedi date),  I use color on my nails.  I'm branching out from just neutrals.
In fact, this Kook-A-Mango has been on my nails on and off all summer.  

My toes still only see Shall We Dance.  But anyways.  This stuff is essential to life, no?  

Gideon is on the mend I think, his temp was on 99 this morning and he's fever free tonight.  My only expectation for tomorrow is a grocery store trip (praying for a normal temp when he wakes).
Happy Monday!
