So I step out of the house this morning to take Bridget for a walk
and this is what I see in the flower bed beside the stairs.
What is this???
It truly looked like someone had thrown up mustard all over the mulch...
but I have come to believe it is a puffy, bacteria filled fungus.
But how did it grow this big and ugly overnight???
I am a little grossed out and moderately disturbed.

This is the beautiful box of goodies that I got for the Spring Blog Swap from
The items included a framed monogram, a carry-all bag with luggage tag, a candle, notecards, pencils, Lilly cocktail napkins and an adorable Lilly change purse!
The napkins say "only count the happy hours!" I just love that!
Thank you Preppy!

If you have never heard of the elephant sanctuary or

families, I urge you to visit this website.
This sanctuary is close to where my parents live and is
beloved in the community. It is a place of love, friendship
Check out this website for stories to read about these
wonderful animals...I know you will love them and want
to share them with others!
If you do enjoy the elephants and stories, think about
giving a donation :O)

JULIA: [reading aloud a letter from Dash Goff] Yesterday, in my mind's eye, I saw four women standing on a veranda in white, gauzy dresses and straw-colored hats. They were having a conversation. And it was hot. Their hankies tucked in cleavages where eternal trickles of perspiration run from the female breastbone to exotic vacation spots that southern men often dream about. They were sweet-smelling, coy, cunning, voluptuous, voracious, delicious, pernicious, vexing and sexing... these earth sister/rebel mothers... these arousers and carousers. And I was filled with a longing to join them. But like a whim of Scarlett's, they turned suddenly and went inside, shutting me out with a bolt of a latch. And I was left only to pick up an abandoned handkerchief and savor the perfumed shadows of these women... these southern women. This Suzanne. This Julia. This Mary Jo and Charlene. Thanks for the comfort, Dash Goff... the writer.
You will be missed. With all our love,

About a week or so ago, Belle on Heels decided to host a spring blog swap. I have never participated in one, but I read tons of blogs and have seen lots of postings on things that people have exchanged... it looked like so much fun!
I was matched with Preppy 101 from All things Southern & Preppy. The name of her blog pretty much says it all! She is such a neat lady with the cutest preppy style. Head on over to her blog and see the treats I sent her :o) She is so stylish, I can't wait to see what is in store for me...it feels like Christmas!
