More Glads and a new bag...

The Gladiolas are really starting to bloom in my yard...it is wonderful! I know I showed you a white one yesterday...but this one is in the front yard...I don't know if I told you...I'm forgetful like that, so bear with me...I bought this package of bulbs on sale at Lowes for something like $4...it has been the best $4 I've spent in a long time...
That little bit of money has given me new flowers every day!!


This one is incredible...I love the white in the deep purple...

There's a tiny bit of yellow in there too...can you see it? So far I have three colors from the 60 bulbs I planted...there's another purple one starting to bloom in the back and about 5 or 6 white ones...I love them all...boy...do I sound giddy over flowers opening...I must sound like a kook!


I finished another bag yesterday after a bit of gardening too...It is my peace bird bag! I love birds...I guess that's obvious...and we can all use a bit of peace...anyways...I'm a throw back to the days of peace and love...a little secret...I was a wanna be hippie in my teen age years...but I was too young...a product of the early 70's and too afraid of my parents to be a real hippie! A gal can have dreams...anyway...back on track...not exactly a hippie bag...just a cute tote, diaper, market, beach or whatever you want to to use it for bag...


Here's a bit of a closer look at the wool birdies...

I made them to match these three...


Some layered buttons...the bottom one is ceramic...the middle one pearl and the top...silver...I do love layering buttons!


A peek at the inside...Robert Kaufman polka dot fabric in white and aqua...lots of pockets...


Yes, June Gloom is still with us, but not quite as much this morning...it is burning off a bit earlier today I think. We have a graduation party to attend tonight...our friend just graduated from college ...he is turning 60 this year...we are very proud of him!


We are also planning on going to get new phones today...I still haven't decided...Android or IPhone...I just hope I'm smart enough to use a Smart Phone!


Enjoy the day, my friends...and I hope you all have a wonderful Father's Day with your Dad or husband or sons...our sons have to work...so Don and I will have a quiet day here...but sometimes that is the best kind of day!!

I love that bag. Too cute. I have to head to your Etsy shop very soon and have a look see. I am in Covina so I know of the June Gloom you speak of.
