Weekly Winners: February 22-28


This week, I returned to the scene of a recent crime expedition for more local beauty and a cuppa vanilla latte goodness ...

A spot of color:


A bridge to somewhere:


The roses will come again:


Heaven in a cup:


Choose your poison, sweetie:


A complete abomination:


It will be a quilt:

My girlfriend makes quilts and is doing one for the Roo-girl.
This was the result of the shopping expedition to the fabric store.
Very sophisticated, n'est-ce pas?
(Tish!!! You spoke French!!!!!)

Go --->here<--- for more weekly winners.

Oh, you crack me up with the Gomez comment! (and vous parlez francais, oh la la!)

Those are very pretty colors and patterns for Roo girl's quilt. Will this mean a mass redecorating for her?

tiff said...

Love the patterns and the colours Roo chose.

C ♥ said...

I JUST GOT THAT ZEBRA PRINT FOR A CAMERA STRAP!!! Joann's yeah?!

Great pictures!

Christina | AmiExpat.com said...

Nice pictures! That quilt is gonna rock!

Karen said...

It's good to see others come out of a fabric store with more than one or two choices on hand. I know you need more for a quilt, just be quiet.

Oh I am so jealous of your rose bush! Mine is buried under a four foot snowbank...I'm not even kidding. I can see pieces of branches sticking out now and it doesn't look good.

Tara R. said...

Love the 'mug' shot. Très magnifique

I hope we get to see the finished quit.

Secret Mom Thoughts said...

Nice set. I can't wait to see Roo's quilt when it is done.

Swistle said...

I lovvvvvvvvvve those fabrics! OMG!

Also, if you do win the baby-birthdate-guessing contest, you HAVE to tell me why you thought March 1st. HAVE TO. Maybe you have to anyway, so I will not die of curiosity.

Karen MEG said...

Gorgeous shots, I love the ones in the coffee shop! Nice choices by Roo too!

Secret Agent Mama said...

Love them all, Janet!

Can't wait to see the quilt!!

Jenni said...

I really like the bridge photo!

Wooden coffee sticks, ice cream spoons, and popsicle sticks are just one of the many, many things that freak me out. Ugh! Just thinking about it is making me cringe.

ComfyMom~Stacey said...

The quilt is going too great in those patterns

Tiaras and Tantrums said...

lovely shots at the coffee shop

Nicole said...

I really, REALLY like the cropping you did on "choose your poison." It is fantastic! Great selections!

Daisy said...

Heaven in a cup -- oh, yeah!!

Kaytabug said...

I love all of these photos!! But for some reason I really fancy the sugar one. Roo made some rockin' choices!

Kila said...

Ooh, that'll make a unique quilt! I like it. Wouldn't have thought of those combinations on my own.

Junebug said...

Is is not? Yes, it is!

Smoochiefrog said...

That is going to be a seriously bright quilt when it's done! :)

abritdifferent said...

Excellent, love them all. can't wait to see that quilt, it'll be brilliant.

Joyce-Anne said...

Can't wait to see the finished quilt! Roo made very nice fabric choices.

Vicky said...

Oh wow! I love ALL of them. I think A Spot of Color and The Roses Will Come are my favorite this week. It's a tough call!

Nap Warden said...

Why am I digging that bridge picture so much? I am:)

Eternal Sunshine said...

They all look great, I do love the bridge photo, too.

And the quilt fabric est tres jolie!

Rachel said...

The bridge pic is fabulous.
I love Roo Girl's choices of fabric and can't wait to see the finished product! WOO!

Wooden coffee stirrers? EEEEWWWW

Momo Fali said...

Those fabrics pale in comparison to how pretty she is. You're going to have to lock her up in a couple of years.

Love all the pictures!

Burgh Baby said...

Hrm. Is Roo wearing a Tar-jay sweater in that last pic? I do believe I have the same one, if not a twin.

Lovin' the pics, as always.

texasholly said...

I loved the sweetner line up. Super cool.

Pamela said...

we need to get you some flavored sticks -- to stir the coffee.

Janet said...

Can't wait to see that finished quilt. Tres chic. (you'll just have to imagine the accent mark)

I like the coffee shots. I agree with you about twigs in my beverages as well.
