Fun in the Sun!

I just got my swap package from the June Blythe Swap and it is AWESOME! I was so excited that I got paired up with Holly, who I met last summer at Angela‘s Blythe meetup. Holly also has a Boston Terrier, likes skulls, and has probably a bunch of other stuff in common with me.

She put together a picnic package! How cool is that?

I had noticed this dress in Holly’s photostream recently and admired it greatly, and she totally sent it to me! I love it. I think that I especially like it because I wouldn’t necessarily think to put these two fabrics together, but they work together really well.

And check out these sneakers:

Skully! Totally my fave. Here’s Willow modeling the shoes, hairband, and dress together. And with a cupcake in her pocket!

Thanks mega, Holly!

The July swap sign-up is open right now, and the theme is “Road Trip” – I’m looking forward to it!

ain’t no cure for the summertime orange

It’s the time of year when orange things start to bloom in my garden.

Here we have some Asiatic Lilies (some of which are red in addition to the orange ones) and some Daylilies.

I love this Butterfly Weed – it looks neat before it blooms, as you see here on the left half, and just as neat after, as on the right.

In the back yard beside the garage we have more daylilies and Asiatic Lilies, and a few Tiger Lilies hiding in there.
