A Month in the Garden and other Places

So many things so many things.
I've been away from this spot for almost a month. I'm not sure how it happened. My husband actually asked me to blog. But I've been trying to exercise more. And greening up the patio and getting a lot of dirt on my hands takes time.

The baby bare roots came. And have been been hanging out with my friends. And with my family.
I went to a gorgeous wedding.

I received the most perfect dessert plates from Gleena. I am planning desserts to go on them. I sang a Modest Mouse song at a karaoke lounge (it felt really good). I went to a beautiful dinner at a friends place. We had our first grill out of the season.

I joined on a "choose wedding invitation colors" field trip because Rachel's getting married and Breck is printing her invitations
I am making many many bridal headpieces and bridesmaid's headpieces too. I'm designing an engagement ring. I'm playing with animals. I've been doing the Brooklyn Flea on Saturdays.

I rocked out a slew of mother's day orders to beat the band. My hands hurt. I spent a sunny mother's day with mom and brothers. I've been mesmerized (guiltily) by the housewives.
Somehow a month has happened and Spring is springing and maybe has just sprung. But enough about me. Tell me about you?

Okay....first of all. You are heaven on earth, ya know? I love that you took a month long break, though I missed you, cause look at all of the beautiful "life is all about these moments" things you did?! I adore your flowers, they look great hun & I would love to see the roses when they come up, and I adore the design you are designing for the engagement ring....LOVE. AND....all of those Gleena plates are making my heart ache( I want some SO very much). Lovely! I sent two of Gleena's gorgeous cups to P for her wedding, and Gleena was so sweet. Then those beautiful green earrings of yours....I just want to tag along on your shoulder for one day, is that okay? :) I cannot wait to see you on the 23rd.....maybe before? Maybe at the flea? When will you be there again?

Well. You have been busy as a bee! I too have been a little crazed. I quit my job! I am freelancing again so very busy. I want to see you and drink wine. ASAP.

Asya said...

Wow, you've had quite the month! I want to come see you at The Flea, and might be able to in a few weeks. I have a few months in NYC coming up and perhaps a weekend in Brooklyn is in order? Miss you, Asya.

Oh, dear Deb..! You've been missed, but of course you've been living life - and I'll take that any day over being in front of the computer, you know? I am happy you sound happy, dear. Sending a huge (and I mean huge) hug your way.

Was that a Greek wedding you went to love? aren't they just the best? I hope you danced:) OPA..xoxo

molly said...

i'm glad to hear you're healing.
life sounds beautiful out your way.
hope to see you in ny when i'm out there...

cindy said...

i've noticed your absence and glad to see you've been up to so much goodness during your break. each thing is better than the next, but the feathers are my favorites because flowers are always a given with me.

i can't resist housewives nyc (so much fighting - oy!) & nj (poor danielle's gorgeous daughters - madone), but my favorite new show is '9 by design', which is also on bravo.

Katrina said...

oh so much goodness going on with you! funny, we also found our "green thumbs" on our stoop in brooklyn. now we have a much bigger plot but it all began with a handful of pots on steps. long live urban gardening!

Mrs.French said...

oh ms. deb...we have missed you. you made the most of your month off and we are all still here waiting for you. i hope all is well with you, i have been thinking of you so much lately sweet friend. xo t

What Possessed Me said...
