We went to LOWES today after work to look at lighting options. We didn't find any lamps that we liked, but we did find a bunch of polyresin MANATEE LAWN DECORATIONS for sale, and couldn't resist but take a couple home with us. Apparently, the summer season is coming to a close and these little sea cows were going for super cheap. Finally, Missy can (kinda) live her dream of having a baby manatee as a pet...

I am happy to announce two new additions to the Flossy Family of Embroidery Floss Bobbins! Please meet FLOSSY THE FAWN!
And please meet FLOSSY THE GIRAFFE! Both of these Flossies are made from beautiful birch wood. I just love the color and texture of this wood. These look really nice! And I also have to say they do a fabulous job of holding this baker's twine we got at Treehouse on our last visit.
Look! Here are all of my Flossy Embroidery Floss Bobbins together as one happy collection! My Flossy Bobbins are available in SHOPPE SUGAR COOKIE - my ETSY shop - and my personal WEBSITE!
