Happy New Year!


Well, I couldn't resist going back and looking at pictures taken from the last twelve months.

I've never journaled so having a blog helps me remember different events from the past year.

Do you have goals for this year?

I went to a health class yesterday and one of the things the lady teaching the class wanted us to do, after her big spill on eating right, is make a goal for this year.

So...my goal was to eat breakfast...apparently we all need to eat breakfast within an hour from when we wake up.

FAILED....forgot to do it this morning!

And when I finally did eat I went to the yummiest, high fat cafe!

I just get too busy!

I consider that was my trial run.

The new year doesn't start till tomorrow right!

Hopefully I'll do better!

Good luck with your goals for this year and remember, HAVE FUN!

Last 2010 White Wednesday


It seems like forever since I've participated in White Wednesday,but I thought I'd go through my files and see what I could come up with.

The first couple of pictures are a few things I made this year for the Christmas show.

Linen pillows with ruffles!

I love how they look all stacked up on top of eachother.


Here are some cloth book covers I made.

I used vintage fabric and then transfered the name of the book on the cloth binding.

I was pleased with how they turned out, they were fun to make.


Vintage mittens.

Look real close and you can see the wonderful old clips with snowmen on them, keeping those mittens together.


I hope you have a safe and wonderful new year!


Keep warm!

Christmas Past


All the stockings were hung by the chimney with care.

I hope your Christmas was full of joy and family.

But most importantly thankfulness for the most precious gift we were given, Jesus!

This year we were able to travel to my sister and brother-in-law's house and enjoy Christmas with nieces, nephews, grandniece/nephew, parents etc...

It was good to get away and spend time with family.

While there we had a special treat of a few other visitors.


They live out a little ways so it was fun to see the deer wander up to the porch looking for new plants to nibble or bits of bread that they'd eagerly eat.

Below is a quick little video of these beautiful creatures.

Soggy Wet Pickin Week-End!

This has been a soggy, wet "pickin" week-end.

But despite the rain my #1 and I found a few things while out treasure hunting.

My mind is starting to think "Garden Show".

You know Spring is right around the corner and I've got to think ahead.


We were able to purchase a few pieces of concrete this week-end, that's always fun to find.

I also bought some wonderful old vintage curtains which I've started to make into Christmas stockings.


I'll be bringing them into the shop this week.

The Christmas show is still going on at Monticello.

If you haven't been there yet you'll want to make the trip.

A big "thank you" to everyone that came out, we couldn't do it without you!

It's true!

After an intense month of crafting and planning I'm ready for the Monticello Christmas Show!

So many talented people.

So, if you're in the area be sure to come by.

The show opens tomorrow morning at 8:00am!

Hope to see you there!
