Summer Friends!

All too often, a special order will be shipped before he or she - or they - have a chance for a debut. This little pair looks so cute in their pinks and greens, I wanted them to have their "day in the sun."
They are off to Illinois on Monday (thanks, Jane!)where I know they will enjoy cooler temperatures than we've had here.

After a delightful visit, Miss Kim heads back to Pennsylvania this morning. We've had tons of fun visiting and shopping. I'm getting back to bear sewing with renewed vigor!
This morning, Rose and I went searching for my first Morning Glory blossom and there it was! I planted seeds a while ago in several locations around our yard and this was the first of the blossoms - meant, I'm sure, to usher Summer in! It looks like there's a little light shining from within the blossom. It's an heirloom variety called "Grandpa Ott."
This is another instance in which "the best camera is the one that's with you" as I took this with my Iphone.
Happy Summer Everyone!!!!

What a Trip!

Not only did we get Miss Kim moved to her new apartment, but we had a grand time in the process! After all the furniture and boxes were delivered, we took a walking tour of the University of Pittsburgh and parts of Carnegie Mellon as well since they are next to each other.

The most spectacular building on the Pitt campus is called the Cathedral of Learning. Inside on the first floor, there are tables and chairs for students to use to study. Classrooms and offices are on the upper floors. Who wouldn't have lofty thoughts and ideas in this atmosphere!
There's a beautiful fountain on the outside of the building and beautiful flowers and hanging baskets abound.
More trip photos soon as well as a sneak peak of a purple butterfly bear. 
P. S. As this was an impromptu trip, I didn't take my trusty Nikon. These photos were made with my Iphone.....which points out the wisdom in the title of one of my favorite recent books "The Best Camera is the One That's With You."
