Birthday celebrations went on all weekend for Miss K with a surprise visitor from down South (thanks, Dad) and family and friends dropping in for coffee, outdoor eating and fun times.
I noticed a bit of a golden-yellow theme going on. While waiting for her friends to arrive on Saturday afternoon, K and I made a bunch of these tissue paper flower decorations. We used yellow and white paper, because that's what they had at the local supermarket. We followed these instructions, and hung them from the windows with sewing thread. Easy and sunshiney.
Other weekend makes (that I didn't think to photograph) included cheese straws, blueberry lemonade (diluted with soda water), hand-painted seed packets plus many beaded bracelets made by K for her visiting friends.
I also made a garland/bunting from scraps of yellow and cream fabric but ran out of time to finish it all weekend which was typical. K can hang it in her room instead, it matches her new ukelele. Happy times, and the end of the golden weather I think- the long-awaited autumn rains have begun.
