Buttercup Bloom in China...

Hi all. This is Annie, friend of Wend....she doesn't have Blogspot access, but she wanted you all to know that the 3 Zasts are doing well. I don't regularly blog here, so I'm unfamiliar with posting photos...I'll have to leave that to WZ when she returns.


Wendy says "It is a trip being so far away for such an experience as this. CCAI has been great & our travel group has been so supportive!

Vera has 4 teeth! And, she is cutting a 5th - so feeding has been a bit difficult for that reason plus she hasn't quite developed her "tongue thrust" skills. Each day gets better, though & we had our first poo (actually 3!) yesterday! WoooT! Her personality is so fun and happy - I can tell that we are in for a lot of action, Johnny and I!"

Rainbow Garden

We've been working so hard on the nursery, wrapping up work stuff, getting over virus bugs and gathering steam for this next big adventure!

Finally the closet remodel was complete! And, what an improvement - not only is it pretty enough to leave the door off, but there is just a load of storage for our girl now!

Thanks to Ikea, we found a shelf that looks a lot like rick-rack. Perfect spot to showcase special treasures!

The ABC Art is courtesy of Melissa Sweet & something I purchased years ago. It is so wonderful to finally see it in place.

A Rainbow Corner...

And the most perfect Kelly Green rug that was ever created. I love it.

And, so does Peyton. Hopefully our garden-girl will, too!

Oh its been more than a little nutty around my home and my head these few weeks. House guests, recovery from a stomach bug and then a chest cold, wrapping up everything at work, gathering medications, choosing packing lists and organizing documents....

And we are finally getting down to the last little details.

For anyone who has been following my blog over the years - you know that I usually have a sewing project in progress. Remember this one?

The girl on the left (who was later named "Pixie" was sewn and delivered to my niece in July of 2007. Her partner in crime, on the right, has sat for all of these years patiently waiting her own unique expression.

Guess I just needed the right inspiration.
