Why do today?


What can be put off for tomorrow?



I am soo bad-
it really takes the pressure

to get me moving.

We are busy preparing

for our daughter's graduation reception.





There really is nothing like a deadline
to get things done.



The parlor hasn't looked this good since ...

ummm...



Christmas...the last deadline!



Well, anyway, as my daughter says-

"it's what you're best at"



stashing and decorating!




Have a great weekend-

I know there are other moms with graduates out there-


Let's celebrate these blessings!

Everything you touch Rene, turns to beauty, really. I wish you lived nearby and could help beautify our cottage for my daughter's graduation reception. I love the touches in her honor all about your home. It is a wonderful time, isn't it?

Rene..your china is just gorgeous...you have a wonderful way of doing vinettes. You sound like me, unless someone is coming over, its hard to get motivated. Hope your grad party is a huge success...I have one in 2 years...so I'd better get planning!
Have a blessed day!

Love your post and the pictures of your dishes are amazing. I especially liked the set from your grandmother when you were only 6. How precious is that?
Love, Ann
