Rosey The Moth & Linen and Herbs

Look who dropped by for a visit this week? I am naming her Rosey. She is a fuzzy yellow moth with pink and yellow wings. I found her resting beneath the maple trees in my yard on a daffodil stalk. I have never seen a moth with such bright colors before. I believe they call these moths the Rosey Maple Moths. Their caterpillars like to munch on Oak and Maple leaves. I think she is stunning. 

Rosey the moth.

I introduced my little Sophie to the joy of painting this past week. She wasn’t so sure about the messy paint getting all over her fingers. Such a little prissy missy she is!

I went ‘thrifting’ this past week and found a gorgeous Ann Taylor Loft linen skirt. It is such a lovely springy shade of green and the embroidery around the bottom is gorgeous! It looks brand new, as if it had never been worn! I can’t imagine someone not keeping it.
Linen has such a delicious feel to it. So light, airy & cool. Perfect for summers in the south. I felt like I had found a treasure all for the bargain price of $3.75. I found a second Ann Taylor Loft skirt, that was pale pink, with yellow and pink roses. I will try to get some pictures of it, to share next time! 
The embroidery is stunning and looks just like summer!

   I love finding unique pieces, that have lots of life still left in them. 

Do you love to ‘thrift’ shop? What is one of your favorite finds?

I will close for now, just wanted to pop in and say hello and happy weekend. I hope it has been sunny, warm & filled with sunshine. We have been busy with yard and garden work. We are in the process of planting our vegetable garden for the summer. Lots of tomatoes, cucumbers, hot peppers & squash. I will try to get some pictures of my herb garden soon. I recently planted basil, oregano, dill, thyme, cilantro and I have salvia, sage, chives, lavender, chocolate mint and parsley from years past, that are back again!

I will leave you with a picture of my chocolate mint, that smells and tastes just like its name! I love to chop it up and add it with a little honey and lemon juice to my chopped fruit salads! Yummy!

    Hi Judy, So glad you stopped in for a visit & thank you Let's hope there is not an over abundance of Rosey Maple Moths here, or my Maples will suffer. It is the only one I have ever seen. So maybe a rare one?
    Blessings and Sunshine, Valerie
