Surprises in the Wall

We have had a few surprises since moving in to our new house.  Some good (like the laundry shoot), and some bad (the roof started to leak the day we moved in), but none quite as interesting as the discovery we made this past week.  We were having some issues with the electrical in the…

Moving Sale!

I know things have been very quiet around this blog lately, but there has certainly been a lot going on.  The biggest news is – we’re moving!  And although we aren’t going too far, just up the river to another small town, it will mean a new house, a new community, and new jobs for…

Pretty as a Princess

I’m back!  We had a wonderful time away on what was, in all respects, a magical vacation.  There is lots to tell, but I haven’t even had a moment to look at the photos we took yet. In the meantime, I had the delight of coming home and bringing this lovely lady to life.  Seriously,…

The Gift of Handmade

Magazine Love – Stuffed!

As you all very well know, I love to read.  My mother used to say of my grandfather “He likes to read print.”  As in, he wasn’t particular about what he read, as long as it had words on it!  I see a bit of this in myself as I find myself compelled to read…
