One of my favorite summertime memories is spending the weekends in Maine with my family. We would rent a little house by the water and spend most of the day swimming or traipsing through the nearby woods.
One evening, my sisters and I found two little snails, declared them our new pets, and made them a home in a flowerpot. It rained overnight, and when we awoke the next morning, our garden was full of dozens of snails. We were convinced that our pets had had babies—you can imagine our delight.
While we’re now a bit wiser about the birds and bees, my fondness for snails has endured. Perhaps that’s why I’m so charmed by the fabric line “Love U,” by Deb Strain for Moda Fabrics.
Or perhaps it’s because I’m rather fond of turtles as well—so you can imagine my delight when one of my friends acquired these little fellows, whom we recently spent an entire evening playing with.
There's nothing like tiny turtles to liven up a dinner party--and summertime dinner parties happen to be another one of my favorite things.
