good saturday morning to all-pink and otherwise!! i'm celebrating my 1st blogiversary and want to give this pink chenille brooch to the winner! i'm also giving away a vintage button bracelet for another prize but i don't have a picture of that. my random generator (my mom) will choose a number for me from the comments and next wednesday i'll post the names as soon as i can. hope all of y'all join me in celebrating!!
things around home have been pretty quite. we took a little 3 day vacation to lake charles casino and really had a great, relaxing time. (except for the sunburn!) the lazy river and kiddie pool there are so nice and georgia and will both loved it!! also been staying with my mom some nights 'cause my sister who lives with her is out of town. that's a vacation too-can't compute so i get to read (all of the twilight books-very entertaining) and knit. almost finished g's dress for the fourth of july. should be able to catch up with pictures of that and a couple of other projects next week since lee will be home with my camera. next monday i'll finally get my lovely root canal and hopefully will be finished with that pain if it can be done!
going blog hopping now to other "pink" sites-hope y'all have a great weekend and sending happy father's day wishes to your families too!!

1/4 of an inch is hosting a post about how "your blog" name developed. my name evolves from my french cajun heritage. in my profile i state how a little "lagniappe" is loved by everyone. little extras given to us throughout our lives, good friends, wonderful blogging buddies, loving families, strengths we didn't know we had. i could go on and on and i'm sure all of you have your "lagniappe" in life. above is my lagniappe offering for today! that little tendril climbing up the stalk of the agapantha made me smile. it was my little extra for that day!!

my first pickings for the summer. none of the plants are doing too great. i don't know what's going on. i will enjoy these though! don't know how much i'll be able to post in the next few weeks. gave my camera to lee for his trip to europe but i'll see if i can borrow one maybe a few times.

- I'm a stay at home mom of four adult children. I've always been interested in creating and have been sewing since I was a young girl. Everyone loves lagniappe. It's the little extra things in life that make it special, whether it's a sweet, sticky kiss from a child or a great cajun cup of coffee.
