Just in case...

{For my Just Us Girls Post, please click here!}

...summer EVER decides to get to Norther California - I'm READY!

Not that I camp QUITE as hard core as I did "in the day..." But it's good to be ready!

Beware of the BUGS! {Even the CUTE ones!}

Oh, sure, some folks use bug sprays, or even the low-tech fly swatter...

I say, TELL 'EM how you REALLY feel!

They'll get the message!

In the meantime, I would LOVE IT if you'd check out the rest of the buttonny details
on the construction of this "earth friendly" bug deterrent at my FAVORITE source for
buttons, buttons and EVERYTHING crafty to do with buttons:

{And don't forget to tell 'em you stopped by! They love your love, too!}

Thanks, friends! I sure hope it's summer where YOU are!

Summer HAS arrived!!

I've done a lot of camping in my time (even hiked a glacier when I was five :>), on both coasts and while I'm not a fan of those constant camping companions, I'll take your uber cute bugs all buttoned up with creative goodness anyday! :>
