Shakespeare’s Sonnet 116 – Love is not Love… I find more and more I am drawn to the era of Victorian England and to the writings the people of Victorian England liked to read. Not all of it, mind you, but the romance and beauty portrayed draws me. Admittedly, I am quite happy to NOT […]

Thanksgiving conjures images of pumpkins, the perfectly cooked turkey on a beautiful platter, colorful leaves, and the family gathered around a table groaning with food. We create our traditions and enjoy our families in this country that has been free for over 200 years. I pray it stays a free country.

Happy November! The weather here is gorgeous and I’m pretending it’s going to just stay that way 🙂 I’ve been working hard lately getting all my Christmas pillows ready to share with you. Some designs from last year are making a reappearance but there is some new stuff too! This post is rather long, but […]

Sweet Tea. Summertime. Vacation. Southern homes. Fabric. Wait. Fabric? YES! My friend KariAnne of […]

Summer is in full swing, we have been swimming and playing and enjoying a break from school along with vaction Bible school, […]
It’s Friday! And it’s the 4th Friday of the month so it’s Farmhouse Friday! Our theme this month is a patriotic how-to so I’ve created a Patriotic Fairy Garden Pennant Banner. Since this weekend is the unofficial start of summer, we’ve decided that Farmhouse Friday will go on hiatus for a few months. Who else […]
It’s project challenge time, and this month it involves a wooden pulley. I about let everyone down this month, as I’m woefully behind schedule.
