Silly Lilli... Our Crazy Lab

So here is lil Ms. Fruity Pants our Chocolate Lab Lilli
This is what she does as my Mother aka The Sewing Bee finishes making the pillow for our larger, not quite large enough bed for Lilli. We are forced to put some blankets in or she will lay in there with nothing... she will sleep in a smaller bed too. This girl is CRAZY but SWEET.
I hope you all are having a great Monday.
She loves to cuddle up in a ball so so silly

You are apprecitaed...


Hi to all of my loved ones in Blog Land... I have been crazed by so many things lately.

I wanted to take some time to just stop and smell the roses or better yet to say thanks to each and everyone of you who puts a smile on my face.


I thank you all for the prayers that were sent out for Emily to get over her SWINE FLU.... she is doing really great and returning to school tomorrow (YES) ;) . There are many of you and you know who you are that are so true and sweet and so faithful ALWAYS leaving such sweet comments some close here in CA and some as far as Canada...
THANK YOU! YOU are all APPRECIATED.


I also want to confess that I am not always the best at going and leaving comments when my life gets so crazy, you know beacuse I am the only one here with a life here in blog land ;) and crazy kids and laundry and dishes and carpools and bible studies and on and on and on :) I am sorry and will work on it.


We are all so busy and all so blessed to have this great place to log onto and to be inspired, touched, loved, accepted, adored, APPRECIATED!

V.B.F. (by the hair of my chinny chin chin)

What can I say about this Baby? she is GORGEOUS... just the way she is.

These pillows are a new project for me, and I love, love, love them... They will be on esty soon with many others.



this is one of my Pet beds... I love the way this one turned out. I am hoping to have these on Etsy soon also :)




I love this vintage cane setee, covered in burlap and the pillows are vintage feed sacks. They are all 4 $ale and waiting to add some charm to someones cottage.
Better late than never... right ;) It is still friday in California 11:51pm to be exact.

Hanging in there...

Sisters... Emily is the one in brown and Hannah is my youngest turning 6 this month :(


Hey there to all my Blogging Peeps...

I have not posted much this week my Emily was diagnosed with the SWINE FLU... You would never even know she had it, she is so herself regardless of a 101 plus fever and being congested I guess that is her TYPE A personality for ya.

So we have been on the down low over here in our home, just taking it easy and getting her better. I do have to keep her out of school all week, but all in all she is getting better :) Please keep my Family in your prayers to have a flu free home.


On another note my monthly Barn event over at LA MAISON RUSTIQUE is happening and boy do I have some great things, this month ;) I will show some pictures tomorrow. I am off to bed, I will be CRAZY BIZZZZY tomorrow.
