Thanks...Linda, Lexi, Ann and Betsy!

Thank you, Linda, for sharing with me the beautiful hydrangeas from your yard. They were magnificent in the dining room this past weekend. How do you get your bushes to bloom so well? Is it the soil or hours of sun? Below is the only bloom I have had on my own hydrangea bush in 3 years. It is beautiful, but I'd like a couple dozen of them!

Thanks, Ann, for lugging my thrift store chair back down to Richmond for a make over! Can't wait to see the black toile slip cover! (Sorry forgot to take a before picture to post- but can do a before/after when I get the chair back.)

Thanks, Betsy, for inspiring me to make cookies last week. After watching you make 75 graduation cap cookies, a few ducks and baby bottles for the baby shower didn't seem like too much to tackle. It was harder than I anticipated and I have a new appreciation for the cost of hand decorated cookies! I would never have finished without your help, Lexi! Thank you for being so unselfish with your time!

Between cookie making and baby shower hosting, and of course preparing meals for the gang, I have made huge progress with my sewing workspace. It is exciting seeing it come together and I am so anxious to have it all set up and resume some production. I actually get kinda grumpy when I am not creating something. Updated workspace pictures are promised for the weekend....the pressure is on to finish!


  1. Your cookies look wonderful and yummy!

  2. HI Jean, Thanks for stopping by my blog. To answer your questions, absolutely you may add me to your blog roll, as I will do the same, you have a lovely blog. I don't have a shop any more, I owned The Vintage Attic in Waynesboro, Pa for 8 years, we closed last year. I took a break for a couple months then I found this lovely antiques shop called Valley Antiques & Uniques in Funkstown, MD. I have a room inside that shop that keeps me intouch with the antique (Junk) business that I love so much. You can find more about that shop on my side bar.

    Very nice meeting you Jean.
