Just in Time for the Thanksgiving Clean Up

When I saw this tea towel, I nearly fell off of the couch! We have a "Lamb" who has actually becoming quite domestic as of late ;). This tea towel is featured at Vintage Screened Tea Towels . Thanks to the Vintage Laundress for posting this tea towel to our group.

Mr. Jonathan Adler (my newest Martha)

...I was so blind...we have so much in common, he and I ...
Jonathan says it's okay to put red with brown (made my day). He believes in rustic modernism: Big Sur, A-Frame beach houses, raw beams (hodge podge lodge), and geodesic dome homes (oh we do love our domies). Butterflies and hearts (XOXO Aud) make a happy home.
Check out the Florida pad of Jonathan Adler and Simon Doonan in the November issue of Metropolitan Home. Look at the physical magazine if you are able to Ana over at has an eye for the best Adler ceramics. Ceramics, pillows, and rugs are my favorite categories over at .

"Man In The Mirror"
by Michael Jackson

"I'm Gonna Make A Change,
For Once In My Life
It's Gonna Feel Real Good,
Gonna Make A Difference
Gonna Make It Right . . .

. . .I'm Starting With The Man In The Mirror
I'm Asking Him To Change His Ways
And No Message Could Have Been Any Clearer
If You Wanna Make The World
A Better Place Take A Look At Yourself,
And Then Make A Change. . ."

Lambs Ear Propagation

Mum planted these Lambs Ear leaves at the beginning of the summer. They have been really slow to grow, but there are signs of new leaf production.
Recently, Mum picked up these plantlets on the door step where they were dropped by the large mother plant. She is planning to grow these plants for the Daughter's of the British Empire June Faire in Sierra Madre.
