...animal flower crowns...

So it started with a little bear pillow from Target several years ago. The bear had a flower crown! TLC and I fell hard for animal flower crowns.

Then it went to TLC finding more “flower-crowned animals” at Hobby Lobby. Pictures. I bought one when we sold our country casa in 2018 and moved to the DFW Metroplex into our new-to-us home. It’s the cutest little cow with a flower crown. Also found it at Hobby Lobby and wanted it for one of our guest bathrooms. (The bathroom Little Leighton and Belle use when they spend the night with us.)

Then one Saturday this past December, I found this calendar at World Market! I always keep a fairly big calendar in my utility room. I note when My Sweet Hubby (aka MSH) and/or I vacuum our house. Clean bathrooms. Even when we need to change sheets in our three bedrooms—particularly our master. (Yes—you Younguns are thinking it’s mighty sad I can’t remember when we do these chores. My defense? We is OLD. And time goes by sooo fast, MSH and I simply cannot keep track of our efforts to maintain a clean and organized home. It is what it is. Sigh.)


When I showed TLC this precious calendar by the artist Spring Whitaker (She has the sweetest story she tells about herself...), TLC got EXCITED. Little Leighton had told her she wanted a 2020 calendar for her closet. TLC got her one for Christmas! (Grammy had to keep hers hidden until Dec. 26th. I didn’t mind. Winky. Wink.)

February is for TLC! The owl is truly perfect for her. I think she’s shared her “owl”’story that is hilarious. (Which is probably not nice of me to say—since the night she experienced The SCARY Owl Mystery, Her Hubby was out of town and she was extremely frightened.) This owl is beautiful!


March is for Moi and Belle!


May is for MSH! This deer is beyond special as he went from being a BIG deer hunter (for about twenty years) to wanting to feed and protect them.


July is for Little Leighton! And AMERICA!


It’s safe to say  I’ll always LOVE pretty animal crown pillows, pictures and calendars. FOREVERMORE.

We’re getting very close to Valentine’s Day. Yikes. 2020 is flying by FAST.

TLC, Little Leighton, Belle, MSH and I all wish each of you a day full of chocolates, flowers, hugs and smooches!

And if you don’t receive them? GIVE THEM. PLEASE. Give them.
