Foxy in the Flowerbeds

My little Foxy was investigating the flowerbeds yesterday as she likes to look for the 2 resident lizards that scamper around the pond and through the beds. Here she is intentively looking towards a russling she heard. She is so cute!

My June Fridgies

Ok these are the fridgies I just finished for my multi partners for the swap in my Crochetfridgiesornaments group. I had so much fun making these. They are quick and I love to design. The bees were actually a pattern for a plant stake but I changed the stitch a little and added magnets to the backs and Voila! a bee magnet. Then I decided to make a smaller one. the dress and purse I added embellishments and made the stitches different to make the little dress and bag set of magnets. I also made a flag and stars and firework swirls, The flag has star buttons for the stars and they are totally my own design. Lots of fun!!!!

1. If you could visit any state in the US, which would it be and why? I would love to go to WA DC to visit the Smithsomium, the Unknown soliders tomb, the white house and see the parliment and the capitol bldgs. I was there a long time ago but never appreciated it like I would now.
2. If you could visit any country in the world, other than your own, which would it be and why? I would love to go to England to see all the castles, and the bridges and history of the country fasciates me.
3. Have you ever driven across several states/providence/countries? I have driven across the USA several times when I was younger
4. Have you ever visited someplace you consider exotic? Where was it? Hawaii was the best tropical place I have been too where I got to stay right on the water in an A+ resort the Marriott, it is absolutely beautiful there!!! And also the Carribbean all the way to Barbabos and San Juan Puerto Rico, very different there

6. Have you ever played tourist in your own home city/state (if international, country)? Explain. Yes when I first moved to California I had family come a lot and we would tour LA, San Diego, and Mexico, the usualy Universal Studios, and Disneyland of course, but beat of all is going to the Queen Mary in Long Beach where I live and the Santa Monica pier.
