it's a jungle out there


it's not every day you see bright colored stuffed animals floating around our place, but i couldn't resist these little guys at ikea yesterday. they're waiting patiently for their new wee owners. our first guests will be here tomorrow and i'm officially excited. and not just because it's a good excuse to eat out.

i took advantage of the free ikea shuttle yesterday and returned a few things. i also bought some extra drawers for the wardrobes (we use those instead of dressers) and some pillow forms to fill the couch pillows i sewed up the other day. i also bought an aloe plant. i've always wanted one...isn't that vierd?

i also sucked it up and went for the flickr pro account. which basically means unlimited storage. so old blog photos won't be mysteriously disappearing. thanks to the demise of ringo i had no choice.

well, see you all next week. i'm planning a doozy of a contest so stay tuned.

Photobucket is still free, I think. My account is, anyway.

i almost got an aloe plant at ikea, too. i'm still going to, but i had way too much stuff already, so i decided to put it off. i, like you, have always wanted one, so no, it's not vierd.

I lived in south florida for 12 years and had aloe plants growing out of my ears... well, maybe all along the fence. I didn't take advantage of them like I probably could have... shame.

p.s. kayla LOVED the owl pendant and wore it constantly on several strands of natural color cotton yarn like a choker. She used the brown little ribbon you included to tie it in the back. Very earthy, very "green", and very cute. thank you again. Did check arrive yet?
