A Weekend of Fun & Already Tuesday?

Met this happy lady on a morning walk,
she's been in town for years, some times gets
a new dress painted on... I think she needs
flowers in her flower box, you?

Had my hair cut Friday, new pizzeria
was the word in the salon - just
a couple of towns over ~ thought we'd give it
a try... two days in a row!The one above was my hubby's choice~

Now this was mine~
The Don Franco
(anchovies, capers, hot peppers, hot pepper oil)
Almost like Italy (really, that good!)

We saw this cute little guy on a walk down the street
got in a little paint~
My hubby and I had the WHOLE weekend
to ourselves - our daughter went camping
all on her own...

Good thing we didn't go far since the campers
~*~ money for a bigger tent
~*~ board games
~*~ water
~*~ sunscreen
~*~ hamburger buns

(separate trips ;)

Good thing they didn't camp far from home...
And I was worried we wouldn't hear from them~

Ooh, and look what I was gazing my eyes on
all weekend long

Ordered from Fifi Flowers

~ An Original ~
Chocolat Luncheon Party Painting

Fifi included special
Chocolat Luncheon Party
Cards & Envelopes (they're beautiful)
Thank you, Fifi!

Now, just to find the very best
place in my office to hang this beauty~
I'm off to work on some projects~
So what are you up to?

Happy Day ~ Jour Heureux!



Paint, painting, and more paint. It's been a theme for the last 2 weekends. As well as the heat. I'm ready to swap with you.

BTW... those parrots are WILD... I snapped that photo for my bedroom balcony... they were in our walnut tree... a FLOCK of them... LOUD LOUD LOUD!

Fifi Flowers said...

One more thing...I will be clearing the WILD parrot story up SOON when I post the painting I am working on of them... ok that's it... tootles!
Enjoy your projects... and the lady does need some flowers... maybe you could SURPRISE her and put some in there...LOL!

Kim's Treasures said...

Your pizza looks yummy! Love the painting from FIFI!
Have a great day!

Sophee-a Laroo Bijoux and Sheri too said... fav. In fact the daycare children and I are eating it for lunch.Nothing like yours though.....sort of spicy! Hold the anchovies on mine please :}
Winding down here.....worked at the Antique store Sunday,then they had a big sale on Monday so I cleaned my space a bit but I did not sell one thing!!!
My pretty dead right now, in fact I may just use it as a landing spot(mentioned this to Lisa)to direct people to my Ebay, Etsy and Lollipop shops. I am also participating in First Friday(
Are you still working on your project? I really have to rethink my many things going at once. My site is the most time consuming though~as you feel obligated to keep it stocked with the other venues you can just list what you want...when you want.
I wrote a novel..lots to say LOL
Are you eating Pizza again tonight?
Just kidding~Sheri

Donna Lynn said...

The pizza looks divine, nothing better then a hand made pizza, yummy! Cute picture, will have to pop over and check out her blog...

Take care and have a lovely rest of your week!

Sherry said...

Tracie, it sounded like a delightful weekend...I'm laughing at all the things the campers "forgot" -- sounds so typical and I could just imagine my own kids doing that!!!

The pizza looked yummy and my oh my, you do like it hot!!!

The poor puppy in the paint (!) and that lovely lady could definitely do with some flowers!!!

As for your painting -- tres will find the PERFECT spot I'm sure!!

Pizza with anchovies??? My first of three husbands liked anchovies. Haven't even heard of them since. That was over twenty years ago that we divorced. Forgot about anchovies till you mentioned them. I thought they smelled too fishy. So ya like pizza with anchovies... Okay, I'll shut up about such nonsense. Just in one of those crazy-cause-it's-been-continually-raining-for-days moods!

Hi Tracie,
Sounds like you enjoyed your weekend. That pizza looks yummy. Did it feel weird to have your daughter gone all weekend and it just be the two of you??? Hope you are doing well and everything is going great......let me know.


CIELO said...

...and she needs some earring made out of roses, and an apron made out of daylilies and a basquet to collect daisies made out of straw.... and oh, a new dress made of sheer delightful waste to be enjoyed in its own right.... ahhh, so pretty! :)

ps: looking forward to see some pics of that lovely window of yours...

That pizza looks yummers!


dana said...

I think my hair cut looks like the lady that needs flowers in her flower box! All pointy. The pizzas look so good- - - cept that fishy stuff on yours! I will have to hunt down a couple of Am Idol shirts. We actually thought about having "American Idol" printed underneath "Mamma Mia" on our pink MM shirts...may do that yet! Have a super duper week end! Oh, I love your Fifi painting! Dana

Fete et Fleur said...

Fifi's painting is delightful. I love the crisp colors and whimisical style.
