I have the most totally cool, jeweled cake tester ever. It’s beautiful and functional, and makes cake baking much more fun and exciting! I baked up a batch of muffins as soon as this beauty arrived just so I could use it.
I’ve been enjoying the slower pace of the last couple months. I’ve spent more time in my workroom just creating. Playing with new fabrics, fonts, and colors. Planning out a bit of a schedule for the year.
We recently had a family movie night and watched the newest ‘Cinderella’ movie. The one with real people. I know it’s not exactly a brand new movie. But we hadn’t seen it yet, and I have to say it’s really good. I have always loved the Cinderella story – I’m a romantic at heart, what can I say?! I love a rags to riches story 🙂
Teff flour and Chocolate goodness – I’m sure the word chocolate grabs your attention and definitely sounds like some yummy ‘good-ness’. But does the ‘teff flour’ stop you in your tracks just a bit? Make you say, WHAT is teff flour?
I’d never heard of it either – and I’m pretty in the know about different flours since I tend to stay away from wheat flour these days.
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 […]
Squishy, Puffy Hearts, these are not just for Valentine’s Day! Hearts have been gaining traction as a trend for a few years now. We are starting to see them everywhere. I’ll admit the thought of hearts in decor does conjure up images in my brain of pastel hearts and geese lining the top of the […]
Sentimental Heart-Shaped Sweater Pillows Sentimental because the sweater used belonged to my Grandma. Heart-Shaped because of the obvious – the pillows are made in the shape of a heart. Sweater because, of course, the pillows are made from a sweater. And pillows because that’s what I do – I make pillows. The word vintage could possibly […]
This year for Valentine’s I created a Heart Shaped Sachet made from a sweater. And not just any sweater. This creation comes with a story behind it – my favorite creations always do. I think I’ve mentioned before that my favorite decor is when it’s not only beautiful, but it also has meaning. I’m all […]
Eight days into the new year already! Time for some Valentine Pillow designs. I brought back a couple classic designs from last year and added a few new, originals.
Merry Christmas! This year my Christmas decor involved a complete Living Room Makeover. You see, my walls have been needing painted for a couple or 5 years. I bought paint back in JANUARY and was pretty determined to get my walls all painted – ALL of them. Living Room, Dining Room, Stairway, Bathroom, Kitchen. I […]
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. I believe that God has us in the palm of His hand and nothing that is happening is a surprise to Him.
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 […]
*this is a sponsored post – all opinions are 100% my own. Good Morning my friends! Grab a cup of coffee (preferably Winans) and come along with me as I take you on a bit of a tour and tell you a story 🙂 I did not grow up in a coffee-drinking family. I loved […]
