At some point yesterday morning I walked into the kitchen and saw Annie sprawled out on the doormat in our mudroom. It took a sec for me to realize she was multi-tasking: keeping an eye on the backyard via the doggie door (birds or squirrels might venture into the yard — egads!!) while catching a few winks here and there.
And then I noticed the doggie door was looking pretty grimy (if you have dogs + a doggie door, you know what I mean!), so after she’d gone outside to check on things I cleaned the doggie door so it’d be ready for her next multi-tasking moment.
A few days ago I went to Hobby Lobby looking for some type of hanger for my aprons and found the perfect solution in the garden goodies.

Several weeks ago my crafty friend Corinne (of So September) surprised me with a package containing an embroidery-themed mug onto which she drew some embroidery stitches. Since I’m currently in the process of adding more indoor plants to our house, I decided to repurpose the mug as a planter.
I’ve been looking for the perfect plant for it at Lowe’s for a couple weeks, but only today did I find something that I thought would be perfect, this beautiful red “Irisene: Chicken Gizzard”.
Here’s where it’s living now:
And here’s another look at the mug — check out the Blanket Stitch on the handle!!
