Just Buzzin' Around

Things have gotten busy and I'm afraid it's going to get even busier.

One of my nieces is graduating from college in southern California one weekend in May......
 and one of my nephews is graduating from college in northern California the next weekend. 
 Road trip anyone?
The kitchen garden is sprouting!  So fun!  

This is Sam.  I belong to him.  Baby Bee belongs to our other cat.  Worker Bee does not belong to either of our cats.  Poor Worker Bee!  He at least has the six goldfish. I know one of them loves him dearly after he saved its life.  I digress . . . . . again . . . . .

I participated in a fun swap put together by Sarah at the lovely My So Called Junky Life and received these little charmers from Carol at Heirlooms for You.

Oh that Baby Bee, she absconded with these before I could do anything about it.
Can you see the sweet box she made?  I forgot to take a good picture of it.   So pretty!  And look at these goodies!  Roses and lace - so lovely.  Hmmmm....I'm already thinking little projects with these.  
And how sweet are these?  Baby Bee tried to run off with these too but I grabbed 'em back.
And (oh dear I hope this isn't bad swap etiquette) this is my favorite part.  Isn't that lock and key so sweet?  It went right on my inspiration board in my "studio."  Oh and the box is in the background again.

And Progress Reports go home this Friday.  I've gotten a wee bit behind on my grading so I've been catching up.  

So what have you been catching up on?  Anything keeping you buzzy?
Oh yes and I feel like a wee bit of a tease, but I'm looking for a little something to add to my next giveaway so it's not quite ready yet.  Soon I hope!


  1. Your garden is looking good. I'm always ready for a road trip too.

  2. Sounds like a busy, but fun roadtrip! You'll pass right by my house--be sure and wave!!!

    Your garden & kitty pictures are lovely--and what beautiful swap gifts--lucky you!

    Don't know how I missed your last post...yes, I do...super busy weekend! LOVE your green Depression glass! My favorites! Again...lucky you!

    Hope you're having a wonderful Monday!

  3. Sounds like your very busy. Your sweet kitty and my Sugar could be twins.

  4. What pretty treasures. Sounds like Baby Bee has good taste, too. You can't blame her. If you really want maple tree seedlings let me know and I'll send you some. They usually start popping up in a couple of weeks or so.

  5. Oh how adorable...what a fun giveaway...and the garden, well the GARDEN will always beeeeee, the center of our home...looking wonderful in CA.!!!

  7. Buzzin' around just like you! It's crazy. Congrats to the graduates! I have one of those "baby's" that make off with things too.
    Thanks for stopping by! Loved it!

  8. Those salt and peppers are too cute! They will look delightful on your table all spring long.

  9. Sweet gifts! Lucky you!

    I've been catching up on my mending and sitting and home and not running around on weekends.

  10. Don't you just love to see those first green shoots spring forth in the dirt? You got a lot going on, girl!


Thank you for buzzing by and taking time to leave me a little note. I always enjoy hearing from my friends.
