New Items




Here are a few pillows that I made using lace.  I love how the lace looks with the burlap!  Better yet, the vintage lace is from a garage sale.   My mother in-law is always on the look out for sewing supplies for me.  These packages came from a little sewing shop that no longer is in business.  Now, if I could only find more vintage bias tape....

Back Home

My family is together all under one roof this morning.  My twelve year old just returned from an amazing trip with People to People.  She visited Washington D.C., Philadelphia, and New York City.  Honestly people, I was still playing with barbies and reading Sweet Valley High books at this age!  She had a great time and met so many wonderful kids from around the world.  My camera is back since it went on this road trip.  I've got pictures to take.  Come back soon!

Right Now


This summer the kids have been sleeping in.  I've been enjoying the peacefulness of the house until the littlest comes down the stairs.  We grab this moment to put on flip flops and head out to the garden with our baskets.  Peas and raspberries for breakfast.  Nothing could be better.  I'm also loving the looks of wet toes covered with bits of dirt.  I could really get used to this!
