Friday Flower Pick : H♥T on the Trail

Early December usually means I'm hot on the trail of some seriously pretty pinks!! There are those brilliant pink, purple, 'n blue Santa Monica sunrises that start the day...
Soft and sweet camellias that speckle the sidewalks all along the way...
And how about a surprising splash of hot pink in a local rose garden as the icing on the Christmas cookie?!


HappyFriday!!
Love,

If I could have just three wishes for a Friday Flower Pick, I'd probably gleefully blow them on bokeh, sparkling dew drops, and golden morning sunshine!! 

No need to wish for any fancy blossoms...those ordinary blades of grass will do just fine=)...

Wishes granted=)...

Happy Birthday to my Favorite Authors



Happy Birthday to my favorite authors: Louisa May Alcott, born today in 1832 and Lucy Maud Montgomery, born tomorrow in 1874!! 

Without a doubt, their characters and stories have provided me with an endless source of inspiration, quotables...and pure delight over the years!!

Love,

I woke up to a delightfully rainy morning that soon gave way to a gorgeous sunrise and a blue sky full of fluffy white clouds...a situtation just ripe for a rainbow!!
...Although I didn't spot one this time, I did whip up a new rainbow scarf pattern that will be available on Black Friday!! 
...Watch this space for more info and stitch one up for you (or someone you love!), just in time for the holidays!!

"Beacause dreams ain't the only thing in life worth chasing..."

Iration - Go That Road 
(...it's a song, a good one=)

...In fact, there are butterflies, rose blooms, supermoons, and fairy's eye views worth chasing too!!

And that's how I spent the majority of my free time this week...wildly and gleefully chasing those natural wonders I love most. If you were in the downtown Santa Monica area at moonrise or moonset, you may have caught a glimpse of me flying past on my lit-up-like-a-Christmas-tree beach cruiser...red laser lights and two rainbow whirls in hot pursuit of some seriously mellow yellows!!
