Tulip Mood

In a tulip mood & this photograph via Tokketok Letterpress blog appealed to me ages ago. It just didn't go with the bright pink & white on today's Giulia Geranium post. BTW, Tokketok has some nice card sets. Icy cold rain here. Trying to get a photograph of Julie doing something other than sleeping--she is a lively girl. But as I said, "icy rain." Still in robe & worrying that I will turn into a female Dude. (See design*sponge's Living In today.)

Update - Sunday evening, 23 Jan. I'll be back shortly. Freezing cold, crazy spammers, etc. On positive note, my Pittsburgh Steelers just won a big game. I know, I wouldn't think me a football person either. My grandfather's team will always be my team. xo. Susan

What a beautiful and clever photo for dreary days. After some strangely warm days, it's turned colder again with rain and snow is forecast for tonight. Hope you and Julie are nice and cosy. Oh, I have that feeling about turning into the Dude some days when I can't get it together and I'm sitting round in my pyjamas with a pile of dirty dishes in the sink. I'm sure you'll scrub up beautifully soon like you did for the Golden Globes.

Please tell Giulia that I get compliments on the following $12 tulip lapel pin (includes bulb and leaves) that I wear every spring during tulip season!

Hi Dude
Love this shot.. so clever... and beautiful

Hey you know I thought 'Honeysuckle' should be yellow also... so what's the deal with it being pink? Maybe I've lost my mind... [again!!].

Have a great weekend... ciao... xxx Julie
