Nothing makes me happier than when the poppies bloom. I love everything about these spunky plants their plump, fuzzy buds,  their brilliantly colored, papery petals, their strong, wiry stems, and the heavy, seed filled decorative seed pods that follow the spectacular blooms. What started as one small plant has grown to a lush patch in my garden.

The past several months have been filled with secret knitting, so I've had very little to show on this blog. Most of that is done now, so look for new projects very soon. Until then I'll try to amuse you with what my kids have been up to.

1. Anders went to the prom. (Don't worry that's water in the martini glass. He was just trying to work the James Bond look.)

2. Izzy opened an etsy shop - CirclingSimplicity.

IJK's Necklace

So far she only has a few things in the shop. The necklace above and a few silk screened t shirts. She plans to create quite a bit more this weekend, so if you like what you see be sure to favorite her stop and stop by next week.

3. Music, music, music. Anders & Sofie's band has been busy writing, recording and will soon be doing several performances in NYC and one in Boston. If you are interested in keeping up with what they're doing you can join their Facebook group.

Happy Mother's Day!!!

She knows just how to spoil her mom

Violet Macarons

I hope all of the mom's out there have a wonderful day today. I know I will with these wonderful treats that IJK whipped up for me and the perfect tote that SKK made.
