Hi Koralee!
Oh I realllly filled my joy bucket today!
Chris and I went to the King Arthur Flour bake shop today {in Vermont}
What fun we had ... and the scones!
...wow...
We came home with 2 "joy baskets" full of King Arthur goodies :D
I was just talking about "Maria" the bicycle TODAY! We passed a green one on display at a bicycle shop {not sure of the brand, but it looked a lot like Maria} and I said to Chris, "that's just like Koralee's, only green."

The world is getting smaller and smaller!

Thank you for making it a sweet world ♥

~Wishing you overflowing joy buckets~

Jacqueline said...

Hi Koralee,
Sorry for my absence, but I'm now back from my sisters. I'm busy trying to catch up with my commenting. It really takes a long while, catching up when you've been away, but I'm hoping to be back on track soon.
I hope that you are having a joyful weekend. XXXX

Hello Beauty!

Love Sarah x

Sweet Koralee, a funny and sunny weekend for you all!!!
Kisses from Brazil!!! Bela.

Susan said...

Just can't tell you the ways you inspire me!
I bought cherries because, for some reason, I was craving them! I was also craving them dipped in chocolate and crushed pistachios...I'm sure I'll have to buy more cherries since they are disappearing and I couldn't find the nuts at the local grocery store!
I made strawberry jam at the canning class I took. {It was on my list!} Mmm Mmm good!
Thanks for all the joy you bring to my bucket, my friend! :)
Hoping you weekend is FAB!
Blessings!
