What's in your bowl?

Instead of what's on your plate! I started to title this 'cheap finds'...the placemat at Wal-Mart for $1, yes, off the summer clearance aisle in the garden section. The bowl I found just a half hour earlier at the Goodwill for 99 cents. I was going to use the photo as my new blog banner, but then got to playing around with some old candy heart photos I shot in February and came up with what you see now up there. I think it's fresh and summery.
Today was so hot. I just checked the noaa for OKC area, reached 105 degrees today and right now is 88d and 43 percent humidity. That's ridiculous. While my husband was watering the yard earlier, we let MM play in the water that was sprinkling. She didn't get too wet, but enough to help her cool down. I shot some photos of course, haven't loaded them yet.
I've been enjoying blog surfing, finding new blogs, charging up my creative spirit. I just checked blurb and see that my book has been shipped and is on its way to me! I can't wait. If you think you are interested in buying a copy (it's the western one on the Chisholm Trail Cattle Drive from 2007), post a comment or use my Web site contact page and send me an e-mail. I'll put you on the email list when I send out the 'for sale' news.

Hey Toni, I just picked up a huge coffee cup for $1.50 at a vintage type shop near my house because it was cute to photograph and cheap! Are you sure we weren't separated at birth? ;)Love yours!
Thanks again for the beautiful photos, yours are going out tomorrow!

That is hilarious! Wooden bowls, fun cups...we really do like the same things. We have got to start a collaboration, but I'm horribly inconsistent/short on time for it right now.
