Helping Hand

This free pattern is great!  We use our large IKEA and Costco bags all the time to tote other items other than groceries.  The large bags really come in handy when we are taking things to Cameron at college.   Makes a great laundry bag for students. 

Free pattern can be found HERE.  For more details, visit this BLOG that has a lot of free pdf sewing patterns.

I'm excited, happy, over-the-moon with joy to announce that the Halloween gourd tree received a blue ribbon at our town's Olde Thyme Fayre!

Halloween Gourds

I will have about 30 new Halloween gourd ornaments available for sale in October.  From candy cups to wee gourd figures, there should be a little of something for everyone!

Yippee for Yart!

Almost didn't go to the Cain Park art show this afternoon, but boy oh boy, I'm sure glad I did!  Finally found some incredible yard art by Kentucky metal artist Rich Kolb.  He had so many unique, whimsical pieces that it was hard to decide.  I managed to score 4 new garden art pieces, although I wish I could have purchased much more.  Cole carried the large flying monkey piece to the car and we had so many positive comments about it.  I even had a lady run after me to ask where I had purchased the pieces.  I think Rich is doing a brisk business today, so good for him!

Love, love, love him.  The large flying monkey stake.

First Aid Kit - Cedar Lane

This Swedish duo has created one of the most beautiful songs ever.  Can't stop listening to it.

I'm a Cluckadoodle Dandy

My friend Wendy makes me laugh.  Here's a festive patriotic photo in celebration of the 4th and her description:

""Perhaps you are not familiar with one of the lesser known signers of the Declaration of Independence a.k.a. The De-cluck-ration of IndepHENdence, John Hen-Cock.
His chicken scratch can be found just below the real John Hancock's signature if you look close enough ; )
