Knock Knock

Who's there?
Orange who?

I love reading Pink Saturdays and seeing all the adorable pink items. But pink is my second favorite color...I {heart} orange! I'm sorry Elle Woods...but orange IS the new pink...at least on my blog each weekend!

I love this tote by Betsey Johnson...so cute! Did you know that Betseyville is actually a place? Yep. I dream about going...www.betseyville.com...check it out!

While cleaning this week I came upon some cherished items that had been put away. I made this tiny quilt for Manga Dork using photo transfer fabric...isn't she a sweetheart.

This old suitcase in the coat closet was filled with goodies I had put away so the babies wouldn't destroy them during the toddler years. The baby doll at the top is from my childhood...she is a Gerber baby doll. The baby in blue is a Lee Middleton...one of about 6 I own. The pink and lavendar bears are Annette Funicello angels bears. The rest are Boyds Bears.

Meet Charlie...Dr. Hubby's childhood playmate. He sits in the top of our coat closet. All the kids are afraid of him and he usually scares adults who happen to open the door! Heehee!

The little ones have been excellent during the cleaning...I can't believe it! They are loving the guinea pigs still and we added a kitten to our home last night. We are slowly turning into a pet store.

Hope everyone has a great weekend. I am getting things in order for my trip to NC to visit Lil Sis and BIL. We leave Tuesday...so get ready to pack your bags and go with me! We have loads of FUN planned...one activity cost $450 for just Manga Dork and I to do...you don't want to miss it!
Grab you an ice-cold orange Crush and sit on the porch daydreaming!

I love orange and pink together. And I've always been a teddy bear fan. I still have some I am hanging onto.

Sondra said...

Magna Dorks baby quilt is awesome! You are VERY creative and talented woman. I love that you added her cuteness to the center of the quilt. Such a keepsake!

Are you going to put out all of your childhood precious toys? Or are you going to keep them put away until they are much older?

You ARE becoming a pet store *giggle. I think it is really cool that the girls love the guinea pigs so much. Have you seen the movie yet? It does look really cute. You need to do a review. It kind of reminds me of the Chipmunk Movie which I loved.

That orange crush looks yummy. It makes me want a dream cycle. Have a fun time at Lil Sis! What activity cost $450??.. Hummm can't wait to hear of it's fun-ness. Have Fun!

I ♥ the gerber doll..I am a collector of quilts too, so I love yours.

I'm told to wear orange in a group if I want to stand out!!That is my "look at me" color..

I'm with Tammy. I luv orange and pink together.

Have fun on your trip. I'm leaving for Canada.

I am scared of Charlie too. That is just hilarious that he just sits there in the closet creeeping everyone out.

Have fun. And orange you glad I am jealous. Can't wait to see what cost that much to do. It must be really really good though. Have fun guys.
