But it is so nice that you would come to visit me before you throw in the laundry! teehee! AQUA JOY FOR YOU DEAREST...thought of you and other blue girls as I did this post.

Welcome back Koralee! These Calofornia colors look so sweet and delicious, am sure you took many more pix. Take time to arrive - wouldn't it be great to have little animals to help with the laundry, like in Walt Disney's "snowwhite"?

What magic! Your photographic eye is amazing Koralee! I love seeing your perspective! Just make sure you share a little more Clifornia with us who are stuck here away from the ocean :) Glad you are home safe!

Auntie Bliss said...

i feel it! Ca. is a wonderful state.
your photos look delicious :)
we have just returned from Chicago and have that same pile of laundry!

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Oh dearest one! I just saw you pop in for a morning cuppa with me! Oh but my sweet one, WE ARE HAVING SUCH HUMIDITY and heat today. I was just listening to the weather report and the HEAT INDEX due to the humidity will make it feel like 117!!!! I thought living in L.A. was bad! So, I did my morning grocery shopping and I am staying in my BASEMENT studio where it is cool. I will be drawing and staying there all day long!

I raise tall glass of ICED tea to you today my friend! Now off to go draw Audrey Hepburn....BISOUS! Anita

Marilyn said...

Welcome home! How delightful to visit Disneyland and oh my - Sprinkles Cupcakes. I love those little cakes.

Erika Lee Sears said...

What a fun trip- I always thought Disneyland was so oddly clean. lol

~*~ saskia ~*~ said...

You are back, hooray. I have missed your inspiring posts my sweet friend. That mosaic is gorgeous. The 'real' Disney land must be even more magical and impressive than 'our' Disney land in Paris.
Your cookies have arrived in extraordinary good shape, no crumbs at all!! Thank you for your sweet package, Koralee, opening it brought a big smile on my face. Waiting for the right moment to play that lovely cookie game!
Have a happy week, I guess you will be washing and packing a lot. When is the move, it is next week, isn't it? Do take time every now and then to enjoy a cup of comfort. Love and hugs o xx o

Looks like you had a wonderful vacation, with pink and blue excitement at every turn!

Suz said...

So glad you are back, Koralee!!! California is fun, isn't it, especially the tourist side. The rest of it isn't so sunny! Katie lived there for three years and I had a good time visiting her but as the old saying goes, I wouldn't want to live there!
Big hugs and welcome home!
Suz

You must've had a fantastic time!

I have only ever been to Disneyland once, when I saw a small girl. Your kids will remember it all I bet!

Happy Monday!

Gloria said...

Oh, sweet Koralee, this collection of photos are so adorable! I love the color combinations. The touch of black to those pretty colors adds the touch of "Mickey Mouse" ...very cute! :) Very nicely put together!!! I am so glad you were able to enjoy Disneyland in good ol' California (where I live)!! :)

Blessings to you dear friend for a "Happy rest of the SUMMER!!" :)

xoxo...Gloria
