Wednesday Talent & Appreciation


I'm so grateful to my family for hosting my kids as they visit back home. They are spending time with Grandma Bennie & Aunt Jessica this week. They are hanging out with friends, going to the beach, caddying golf, bowling, and enjoying good home cooking. I grew up by the Texas southern-coast, so spending summers at the beach was a guaranteed. My kids are at South Padre Island enjoying the sun and water. Hope they are using plenty of sunblock!!
.
I'm also thankful for Kim at 733 Creative Blog. She redesigned my blog in my favorite colors red & turquoise. I'm giving her a huge "shout-out" as the one "Hoo's got Talent". My new blog design is my "Show and Tell". Yeah Kim, "We Did It".

.
Lots of blog parties and events. Be sure to go by Heidi's place Heart and Home. She is so sweet and always has gorgeous pictures!! Join in a blog hop at "Welcome Wednesday" and meet new people and get new idea.

I spent the evening cleaning out my sewing room and trying to organize the chaos. I put in new shelving and sorted through my fabric closet. I'm not done yet but it is already looking so much better.

  1. Wow! Yoli, I love your new look. I didn't realize until now how much I love that turquoise, red and buff. For me, I would probably throw in a little bit of black because it is one of my favorite colors. Strange, right?? lol
    Glad you have some "alone" time. We all need it.
    Lucky kids. SPI rocks!!

  5. Hi Yoli,
    The blog looks terrific, love the new look. That senorita up top is very elegant, did you pose for the painting? :)
    It's great your kids are having time with the family, and get to spend time at the beach. It's all fogged in here today, typical summer weather. Our best beach days are in Sept. and Oct. shhh , don't tell the tourists!!
    I hope you're having a great week, enjoy the weekend and the time to yourself! Thanks for linking to Wednesday Gratitude.
