This is nearly completed and has pretty butterflies yet to be embroidered on it.
Two rose x-stitched blocks with NO embroidery floss included. Sweet for Valentine's Day craft and could make two matching pillows with these squares.
#3.This is on the larger size, but cute as all get-out!
#4.This is a small piece, so could be completed lickety split! An apple a day for a teacher in your life? #5.
Cross stitchers take note!
Look at the organization of the yarns on this one - all labeled so you don't even have to think!
#7. Not even one stitch has been taken on this pre-printed fabric, but it sure is a classic you could enjoy stitching on.There you have it. Please let me know by Valentine's Day. Mom would sure get a kick out of knowing her work would be completed someday.

Are your eyes watering yet? Now about that chocolate...gotta go!
This concludes the Pink Suitcase Chronicles Series #14. Meanwhile, I await a reply from the American Tourister company to see if they can replace my Pink's lost label. Oh, and also await their response to take me on as a Spokesmodel for their company...lol!

Pictures don't do this mission justice. It was a lovely destination to find. And savor.
Coming: Desert Dessert!

Here we see the entry to The Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum.
Both of us have visited Presidential homes and birthplaces in the past - Mount Vernon (Washington), Monticello (Jefferson), Springfield (Lincoln), Sagamore Hill (Roosevelt) to name a few. We like them for different reasons: Wes likes the political aspects, the cars and helicopters, and the historical implications. Me? I like the home aspects of the first family - the wife and children, the decor, photos and letters, the fashions. Good balance.

Our first stop was to Adventure Land. How could we have possibly missed The Enchanted Tiki Room on our last visit here in 1999? We were totally charmed by this original 1962 vintage attraction. Singing along with the exotic, accented birds and their warbling Vegas-style showbird friends as well as the flowers and "natives" sure put us in a happy state of mind!
Certainly the photograph of the famous castle had to be included in this blog! It's as magic..and pink..as you'd expect. Somehow we kept seeing this little "princess" decked in her princess dress, ears, crown and high-heeled gold shoes carrying Bambi around. She's assuredly living the dream!
Wes and I needed our breaks, and due to this being "Happiest Place on Earth" we figured we'd stuff our faces with happy foods, too. Check out this Mickey pretzel and chocolate s'more.
Good times. Feeling like kids again. Sorer feet - but well worth the trip.
Coming: Hail to the Chief
