hoping that today finds you rested and ready for the short week ahead.
i know lots of your kiddos started school today... so i know it's been a biggie!
lots of new for lots of you!

did you notice the "snap" outside this morning?
the slight chill in the air?
did you have it there too?
september is showing her face for sure... and i have to say... it feels nice!

a few weeks back... give or take... on a trip with friends to san antonio...
after a scrumptious dinner and taking in a little latin music...
 we went by an art festival they were having downtown.
when i saw these hand carved nesting containers.
i thought they were sO neat!
finding something handmade like that...
aNd getting to meet the person that made them... lOve that!
really puts the special in something! 

i adore their warm feel and their recycled personality!

whether i have 'em in the kitchen... packed with utensils...
in the studio... holding tools...
or just about... filled with fresh flowers...
i'm thinking these containers... that i saw... ran for... felt i had to have...
sure will be fun to have around!

fun too... that a little something can bring a big smile.
she loved seeing a fresh one waiting in her room once home from school!

update...
thanks jennifer for letting me know!
i forgot to link the creative couple that made the containers!
they are ronald & wendy of kyote country crafters.
although they do not have everything they make shown...
i can imagine they would be thrilled to hear from you!
their pieces are so pretty in person!

 before i shoo...
of course i wanted to tell you thanks sO much for last's week fun!
not only did i get down right hungry reading yall's comments but...
what great ideas & yummy breakfast yall have going on!
really great!
every message that came in... every one... brought me a smile!
thank you... ALL of you... sO much for playing and sharing!
 
and...
i got to thinking (oh Lord)... :O)... after realizing...
i actually have sixteen!
so i thought...
why not have two winners!
eight mats to each!
?
i know some of you have lots of kids but... 
not many of you have that many... :O)...!
so...
i sure hope it's okay... i made an "executive" decision... ha...
and went for it!


the random generated winners are...

Too Cute! Colorful birdies and owls, it doesn't get much better than that in my opinion!
Breakfast for me is almost always a HUGE cup of coffee and oatmeal with apples!

I'm coming out of lurking because I Love Ikea and LOVE the placemat.
Dying to get an Ikea here in Indianapolis.
We make smoothies at least 3 times a week.
My kids love them 
and I know they are at least getting some healthy fruit and yogurt to start their day.
Love your blog!

if yall would just please do me a favor...
give me a shout out here... with your address...
and i'll get those birdies flying your way... :O).
 

now...
i'm off to deal with a VERY tired... over dramatic... in a COMPLETE melt down...
daughter!
thank you Lord for giving me the patience i need right at this moment... :O)!
