Summertime Ether

All of my best-made intentions around Bitty Bebe making have somehow managed to dissipate this weekend into the ether of summer...instead, I have found myself lured outside repeatedly and then suddenly consumed by the need to stake the tomatoes (this is our backfence kitchen garden--we grow eggplant, gypsy peppers, sweet banana peppers, fennel, scallions, 3 varieties of tomatoes and 2 varieties of summer squash--my handy husband built the boxes)...
weed the flower bed... poke around the pots of herbs outside the kitchen door--like they are all good little children in need of my praise and attention.

And then weeding and poking led to filling up the kiddie pool for my boy, which led to the need to get out bowls of cherries for eating...
and then a lunch of salad caprese... and then fruity ice cream sundaes (fat-free frozen yogurt, fresh pineapple, strawberries, almonds and shredded coconut over it all...like ambrosia but better)...and, well, now the whole afternoon is about gone. I did notice while eating my salad and strolling the halls of Etsy that
A Little Sprout had one of her adorable City Bear Girls for sale. Yes, in keeping with my doll obsession, I already own one--but what I really wanted to do was to tell the world about her dolls and how perfectly wonderful they are--so finely made and they arrive at your doorstep in these sweet brown paper packages... and when I bought my second doll--Chloe--from Sara, she even made a little sleep sack and pillow and included these with the doll. How sweet is that? So, go check out the shop if you are interested in biying one of her dolls--but run, don't walk, as her stuff goes FAST.

Awww, Holly! Thank you so much for the city bear girl love!! I am so flattered you mentioned her on your blog (congratulations BTW!!) and thank you for shop link! She looks really happy there. Your son is so cute and I love your veg garden too!

Your kitchen step looks like such a beautiful place. I could definitely go for one of those sundae's, too. I've got to try that combination! Thanks for pointing me to those dolls, they are adorable! I hope your weekend has been super fun!
