A brand new graduate!

Buttercup is one happy girl. She made the most of her high school years but there is still nothing like that feeling of accomplishment when you are finally finished.

We had a nice family supper at home before heading off to the ceremony.  

Along with a laptop for college, she got the usual laundry basket full of college goodies.  Including the mug she's reading....Don't Let the Muggles Get You Down.  Always good advice.

I thought I'd be a little sad but it was fun seeing the kids I've known for years shine up on that stage.

Summer has finally arrived and my boys have a new spot to watch the world go by.

I am organizing some sewing and shopping for a new sewing machine.  I'm looking forward to some long lazy days of sewing.  With my two side kicks and my camera I hope to be able to show everyone what I've done as I go. 



  1. Congratulations to your daughter! And I love the sentiment on the mug :) Enjoying your sewing days, looking forward to seeing what you create.
    Best wishes.

  2. Congratulations! Enjoy summer. All of you. :)

  3. Congratulations to everyone! What a lovely family! Hey...I just sent you an email...

  4. Congrats! Looks like a happy celebration -- and a fun planned summer coming, too! Enjoy!

  5. That is so exciting to have all three kids done with high school! Congratulations to your daughter--and I know her college years will be filled with many more successes :)

    Another new sewing machine--lucky you!! Do you trade in your old one? Enjoy your sewing projects, Pam.

  6. Congratulations to you and the graduate! Love that you're celebrating by getting a new sewing machine!! :)
