Hey, Boo

I've been a blogger recluse lately ~ the Boo Radley of the blogosphere, so to speak. Forgive me, but I am in a To Kill a Mockingbird state of mind.

My little book club decided to read TKAM in June, even though all of us had read it at least once before. Coincidentally, a local community theater was staging a production of the play last month. We all decided to go, and along with a delicious supper before, we enjoyed a perfect summer evening. It was community theater at its best. And the "Hey, Boo" scene remains my favorite, both in the book and the play.

Moving forward , or I should say looking back, here is a sampling of the last three months:


Lots of time spent with family and friends  . . . .


Springtime garden with little barbarians
at the gate

and in the garden and with the girls. . . . 

There's something so homey about
making jam.
enjoying the fruits of our labor . . . .


 rearranging one corner of my life . . . .

Ann Rayner by Threads Through Time
40-ct. Lakeside Linen Vintage Buttercream
Mostly Needlepoint Inc. Silk

and spending some stolen moments with my needle and thread.

See you again soon!

Dear Joy,
Since my last (long-ago) visit, it is clear that you HAVE been busy! It is a delight to peek through your garden gate, visit with your "girls," admire the well attired (yummy) jams, take pleasure in a lady quite bejeweled in frames, and drool (quite unladylike) at the gorgeous sampler.
I becomes clear that happiness abounds behind your Garden Gate!
Wishing you your heart's desire...
Hugs,
Judy
