Love your little pink case, Carrie! Those veggies look scrumptious! I'm sure that Brinsley will make her way in school this year.

Jules said...

Welcome back. I love love the pink case.

I'm impressed with your garden goodies! Mine aren't doing well at all, and everything is shriveling up and dying before it's ready to be picked, except the squash.

Rhonda said...

What a cute sewing it! Love all the food coming from your garden!!!

Jenni @ nest to keep said...

Oh, that pink case is adorable! And the vegies you grew from your garden look amazing! I am not good at growing edible things in my garden at all! What salsa recipe do you use, or did you create your own? Would you care to share it with us? I have a pico de guio (sp?) recipe I made, but haven't made "real" salsa in years!

I hope you have a fantastic weekend! :)

Love the little pink redo! Great idea! I may have to try and make some fresh homemade salsa! But, I will have to buy my vegetables.
Glad to have you back!

Susan said...

I totally understand about Brinsley's schedule...sounds just like my son's schedule! I hate the thought of school starting again...

I love all your "new" goodies ... especially your lovely veggies:) We haven't had enough sunshine for mine to rippen well...still waiting for the sun!!

Glad your back:)

Christina said...

Oh, totally love the pink suitcase. Spray painted---genius!

Small House said...

Summer is so busy, isn't it?

Love the sewing case you spray painted. But now I'm bugged, because I saw a red one the other day at the thrift store, and passed it up. Look how cute I could have made it.

Enjoy the salsa.

Hi Carrie!

What a cute little pink suitcase/sewing kit. So fun! I hope things are going well with you all.

I wanted to let you know that you won my Favorite Things blogoversary giveaway! Let me know what initial you would like on your pendant and if you have a preference on the background color. I will make it right up and send it off along with the other favorite things.

Congratulation Carrie, on winning jenjen's Favorite Things blogoversary giveaway! I'm so happy for you....ok so, maybe I'm a little jealous....BUT I'M STILL HAPPY FOR YOU!

Love the little suitcase, it looks so cute in pink! I had one just like it when I was a little girl, but I wasn't clever enough to think of painting it pink, like you did!

Your little case reminds me of the one my Grannie use to travel with. She kept all of her toiletries in it. Her's wasn't quite as pretty as yours!

Love the little shell figures.

Your garden must have done really good!

Brinsley's schedule sounds really trying! I'm sure that she will do well!

I had chemistry with Simpkins my junior year. He was hard but I learned a lot.

Most students didn't like them, but they never tried to do any of the work. And they wonder why the got a bad grade. :)

Glad you're back to blogging!
