One old window frame... :o)

A little project that will go in my sewing room at the new house... An old wooden window frame, minus the glass. Put chicken wire behind it and then add a little "frame" to the back to make the chicken wire be away from the wall a little bit. I have an assortment of mini clothespins, and this will be my "tack board" in my sewing room, for ideas, fabric scraps, kids drawings and notes, etc... :o) I love it! :o)

P.S. In this pic, it is sitting upside down, and the original hardware hasn't been put back on it yet... :o)

still waiting...

Still waiting to move, our closing date has been changed to probably mid-July... It's ours, it's just that the darn paperwork takes so long... So today I did a little retail therapy. :o) Found this amazing PINK enamel bowl! It's quite large, about 16" across by 5" deep! LOVE! :o)

Father's Day 2012

This is my post from Father's Day 2009, but it is just as true on Father's Day 2012, so I just thought I would re-post it. Everything is the same, just a few years later. It's now been 4-1/2 years since Dad passed away.


Father's Day is an emotional day for me. On the one hand, I am a lucky lady, for my children have a wonderful Dad. I couldn't ask for anything more for my kids. Jim came into our lives when the trio were about 5 years old and anyone that didn't know, would never know that he isn't their *real* dad. (The trio are 11 now, so he has been here for most of their lives at this point.) And what is a real dad anyways? I think Jim is more of a real dad to the trio than anyone else. And then Jimmy came along... Which just added to the joy of our family!

And on the other hand, Father's Day makes me sad. I lost my Dad to a heart attack, a little over a year and half ago. I still miss him desperately. It has been harder than I ever could have imagined, and I am still not sure that *it gets better*. I was the youngest girl of three, and Dad was the one person I could always count on. He never judged, he just loved me. Jim is alot like my Dad. :o)

So Happy Father's Day to my dear husband, Jim, and Happy Father's Day to my Dad.

new purse

Finished up my new purse this afternoon! I'd made one of these for myself before, with pretty much the same print but with a cream background. Of course, now it is very dirty, so I decided to make myself another one with a dark background... LOVE this rose fabric! The pattern was purchased from HERE. Thanks for visiting! Back to packing... :o)
