A much needed break

Our family had a great opportunity to stay a couple nights in a wonderful house by the river for free. It was so much fun!!! We took a couple teenage friends along to pal around with our teenagers and our older girls both visited while we were there. We had our little grandbaby Maya with us and boy did she love getting dirty and playing in the sand. It was so nice to get away from the phone, paperwork , schedules,etc. We went into the little coast town nearby and found some pretty fun antique stores. Hopefully I will post some pictures of a few finds in the next couple days.

A bit of Nesting

I finally had a little time to start some Easter projects' I made some little candy baskets along with several fluffed up birds nests. I love adding little bits of ribbon,lace,glass glitter, millinery,and whatever else I find scattered on my work table. I tend to be really messy when crafting as I have to have everything scattered in front of me. I should take some pics of my work cottage. I love it but it is incredibly messy. My daughter in law says it is totally inspiring (bless her) to just be inside but my daughters say it looks like a bomb went off with glittery debris everywhere.
I loaded up my booth at the Monticello yesterday with some of the finished goodies ,if you are in the area be sure and stop by as usual there are lots of great booths brimming with treasures.

Looking forward to some crafting

Happy Birthday Gracie!!!

This has been a doozy of a week and I truly am looking forward to the weekend and possibly a little creative time. Tomorrow one of my daughters is turning 15. Wow the years sure fly by. We are opting for a quiet family party. I am trying to come up with some Easter projects for my next run to the Monticello. I'm not feeling overly creative as there has been a bit of stress surrounding us. Hopefully the ideas will come. Have a lovely weekend.

A good mix of fun and work

This week my my two youngest girl pals and I headed to the Monticello knowing we had our work cut out.Two large pieces of furniture had sold and both were filled with small stuff which of course was stuffed everywhere. Such is the case when you live to hours from the store that your booth is in. Many days it is a speedy trip up just to keep things off the floor and looking tidy. I never complain about the large sales :)
We are now back to normal with no baby bummer lambs in the kitchen. I must say as much as I enjoy them there is a nice feeling about not getting up twice a night for bottle feedings.
