I am sorry that I have been absent from this little space lately, my brain has been defective, it is the only way to describe the slump it leaves me in.  In the meantime I have been popping the odd snap over on Instagram.  It gives me little smiles throughout the day, and has been helpful in fighting my defective brain.  If you are of the Instagram inclination, please do pop over.  I will try to be back here shortly.

Many many thanks for popping by, it cheers my heart.

June 23 - At Last!


For longest, longest, time I have wanted an old free standing kitchen cabinet, a Hoosier cabinet or Sellers cabinet they are called here in the U.S.  Generally speaking they are either in very poor condition or way above my price range or they have the dreaded sold sticker on them.  None of those things have stopped me from studying every single one that came through our local flea market.  Finally, after years of looking and searching I found one that I love AND that received the Mister's approval with a more than affordable price tag!  Yippee!  Double yippee when the seller knocked ever more off the price and I scored this beauty for under a hundred dollars. It makes me smile every time I see it. I've polished, dusted and de-cobwebbed it and it has pride of place in our living room. Of course of stuffed it full of stuff and it is the perfect place for my growing collection of tiny toy dressers.

I love it when patience actually pays off!

Happy Tuesday and thank you for stopping by.

P.S.  I'm on the hunt for another one now to replace my 90's orange pine dresser in the dining room.  ☺

20 June - Little Star Quilt

I don't have many words today, this week has seemed like I have lived someone else's life.  My son was happily married on the 15th.  It was a lovely simple wedding in the brides Mum's garden, it suited the bride and groom perfectly, they like things simple and casual.  It went well, despite the 103 F heat with horrible humidity!  The bride and groom are now enjoying the VERY sunny temperatures (112 F) of    Las Vegas and enjoying every minute - thank you Facebook!

I am so happy to have such a beautiful daughter in law.

I do hope all is well with you and the weather is treating you kindly.

P.S.  I nearly forgot, the little quilt is s flea market find I'm loving these days, a sweet 1930s baby quilt.

June 9 - This Moment.....

My Middle J is getting married in 6 days.  YES 6 days.  I've not mentioned it before, well because it has all happened so fast!  He texts me daily from the other side of the country to tell me the current changes in the "plans"...casual dress one moment, formal the next.....registry office one day, backyard the has me all in a state of high anxiety.  So, as I sit here this evening, stitching a little something for the sweet young couple I wish that times didn't move so fast, that the plans would stay still going forward and Mostly wishing I could go back to the stress free life of childhood!

P.S.  Do you think it would be silly to pack three outfits to choose from as the wedding is out of state??  I so fear packing the wrong thing and plans changing the day before!!!
