Making our house a home!

Hi sweet friends!
Yes, I've been absent for a while now!
I've been having some health and pain issues with my back and left hip
so it's made me pretty doggone boring.

I have managed to get a few things accomplished so I thought
I'd share some photos with you all.

Firstly, our son Brad gave me a new antique set of china for Christmas!
It's been unpacked, cleaned and displayed in my mama's china cabinet.
I absolutely LOVE IT!!


As we've moved into the big living room,
I've slowly but surely added items to make it feel like home!

We found this amazing ottoman at a thrift store for only 14.99!

Our den is now a library/office/extra room for making pretty things!

It's been so much fun but has also taken me waaay too long!

And recently I actually made something!
A sugar dish pincushion for someone special.

Thank you always for stopping by,
even if I haven't posted in months!!

Much love,

Finally sharing in this brand new year!

Happy New Year!
My goodness y'all, the years are flying by like lightning!

I will tell you one thing we can ALL count on in this life

Yes, over the years my family and I have experienced all kinds of change.
It just seems that the older I get, the less I want to experience.
Losing my mama was the biggest change I've ever had to go through.
And truthfully...I'm not "through" it and never will be.
She was my precious mother and my very best friend.

This coming May, it will be two years since she passed.
My dad has grieved for her so much and then this past fall
he finally realized how terribly lonely he was.

He met a sweet lady, they dated a few months and BAM!!
They were married!!!
The best thing? I love her too!
She as sweet as pie and just what daddy needed.

Dad moved to her home and we've been adjusting around here.
It really is a good thing though.
I miss him but am so very happy for him too!

SO, we've been rearranging furniture and
moving into my parent's living room.
It's not what we planned in the beginning but that's okay.

I'll share some photos of our new living room space soon.
We're turning our den into an office space
as my husband works from home!

I hope the new year is being so good to you!!!
Thank you always for checking in on me...

Hugs and love,

Saying goodbye to sweet summertime ~


Here it is the middle of September and I'm just getting back here!
To say the least, the pool turned out wonderful and
we all enjoyed it so much!

I thought I'd share a few photos with you.
We're about to close it for the winter and it seems a little sad
but the cooler air is exciting too!

At some point this summer I took down the curtains on the front porch.
They were SERIOUSLY covered in mildew because of them
being gathered around each post.
I'll hang something new up soon.

But my dad did get some cute outdoor lights hung on the porch!
They were nice to have on for night swimming.

We grew a batch of sunflowers along with our garden
and when they started to wilt, I picked them all.

I wasn't very successful in drying them though.
They were beautiful while they lasted.

I wasn't very creative this summer in the studio.
I did paint a few bookmarks in the evenings while watching TV.
They were simple designs and fun to play around with too.

I'd bought a laminating machine so it was time to try it out.
It worked perfectly to protect each bookmark!

Lastly, we added some pretty things to the gazebo or
"potting shed" which it's not.
But it is kind of decorated that way!
I think it turned out really sweet.

I've never been a huge fan of summer.
But having the pool made this one wonderful!!!

The days are getting shorter here in Georgia and
the temps are beginning to cool down.
I'm wanting to get back to the studio and just make stuff.
No agenda, no list, no orders.
I just want to make pretty things!

Thank you always for stopping by to see what I'm up to.

Hugs and love,
