Well the summer has gone by,but the heat has not,still hotter than Hades here. Alot was done this summer,celebrated some birthdays,(my friend had a mariachi band at his)! 
 My niece had a birthday brunch at the Mission Inn and my mom and sister sat across from me so I had to snap a picture of them, aren't they gorgeous!?

 This Hello Kitty mermaid was made for another dear friend's birthday.
 The family had a beautiful baby shower for a niece of mine. That's my sis and her daughters, and the next pic is of Mom and her sister and cousins getting silly at the shower.

 Spent a couple of days at the beach and spent some time looking for shells and heart rocks with my great-niece Jordan.

The weather has been a bit bizarre the last couple of days, although the clouds rolling through have been quite lovely.
It has been a long and very hot summer and I am ready to start complaining about the cold!

Life has been going on here on Magnolia Ave even if I haven't had time to post about it, here are some snippets of the last few months.
We've had some losses in our family,my Uncle Lolo died just before the new year and a neighbor that I'd grown up with passed just a few weeks later. Just this week my mom's 15 year old dog Lola died.
I would walk into a room and find my mom chatting with Lola so I know it's especially hard for her.
As usual I have been working on different projects.
The mushrooms have been so much fun and it's a great way to use some of my silks scraps that I just can't toss out no matter how teensy they might be.
The boy came home to visit for two glorious weeks!
 I was so happy to have him here and then all of a sudden he was gone again. I always go into a bit of a funk when he leaves,but hopefully he will make it here for Easter.
Meanwhile,spring has most definitely sprung here in SoCal. The neighbors tree has been in glorious bloom for a couple of weeks now,it quite tall and you can see it from a few blocks away.

The calla lilies are up,the rose geranium is covered with tiny pink flowers and the lemon tree is covered with blossoms. Oh the scents are wonderful!
