Much more cuteness & a winner!!!

a gazillion baby spiders ~ I love the way the mother spider incorporated all of these tiny flowers in her web.  Wouldn't it be wonderful to see a beautiful flower and a bright blue sky the moment you were born in the forest!  How awesome would that be!
And it must have been a day of baby spider births in general, because further down the trail I found these...looking at them closely, the way they are all huddled together, reminds of of two ♥'s ~ a large one at the top and a smaller one at the bottom.  So cute!

I'm exhausted!  We've been on a marathon shopping spree today, getting things ready for our milestone dual birthday party this Sunday!  So far, over 50 people have's going to be so much fun!  Of course, I'll have pictures afterwards to share :)

And, the moment you've been waiting for [insert drum-roll here]...Lita picked "Lateia" to win those awesome earrings!!!  Congratulations, Lateia!!  I think she picked your name because she thought it was hers ~ yeah, she can read!  Lol, maybe not read, but I know for a fact she can spell!  Please send me an e-mail with your mailing address, so they can be on their way to make your little ears happy!!  And thanks everybody, for your wonderful comments!!  If you didn't win, but would love a pair, you can purchase them on Etsy, enter the coupon code BLOGGER2011 at check out and get 10% off! 

Hope you're having a wonderful week!!

Tuesday cuteness... my obsession with tiny things and cuteness continues, I had to share these adorable baby geese with you!  They were waddling around at the Biltmore Estate last week, along with lots of other cute!  These were actually curious to find out what the heck I was up to, while the others scattered away.  

Hope you're having a great week!  Don't forget to comment on this post, for a chance to win these awesome earrings!  Lita will be picking a winner tomorrow!!
♥ & peace always ~ Kathy

Small treats...

Hey everybody!!  Hope you are all well and enjoying May!  After the "Big Love Fest" [which was most awesome, by the way], I took a little break.  The weather has been absolutely gorgeous around here and we have been taking full advantage of it.  On my birthday we went back to "Cove Creek" to see if the Pink Lady Slippers were blooming [like they usually are on my birthday] and sure enough ~ they were:
 And then we went back to "Cat Gap", another of my favorite places, and found this:
And these:
The smallest of treats makes me the happiest:
I had a wonderful birthday dinner/party with some awesome friends.  But the best gift I ever got was this:
My awesome husband ~ truly my soul mate and the best guy in the whole world!  What a wonderful birthday!!  But I haven't totally turned into a slacker...I have taken time to make a few new small treats for ya'll, like these:
Made with gorgeous faceted Aqua Blue Quartz Glass briolettes and appropriately named "Baby Blues".  They are for sale in the shop, if you want to see more photos and a full description of them. Although, I will be giving a pair away on Wednesday to one of you lucky readers!  All you have to do is leave a me a comment and tell me the best birthday gift you ever got!  I can't wait to read about it!!  Good luck in the drawing, Lita will be picking the winner!!

We're off to the Arboretum for the afternoon to see what's blooming!  There are still lots of wildflowers blooming and birds chirping.  As I type, there is a little chipmunk outside my window chipping away.  Those little guys sure can stir up a ruckus!  Have a wonderful day!!
♥ & peace always ~ Kathy
