Kindness of Others

My first outing with little Mary Jane was to drop my son off at his preschool class last Thursday.  When  we got to school, I looked in his cubby, and I found this.

The ladies at the church that he attends preschool at, baked a loaf of banana bread, wrapped it in tissue paper and attached a beautiful piece of linen with an embroidered cross.

They tied it with an adorable pinky purple yarn and attached the most touching prayer.


Isn't this prayer absolutely beautiful?  

The banana bread was DELICIOUS!   My boys finished it all by themselves!

I was so touched by their kindness and I'm so happy to have learned this little prayer.  It is just so sweet.

Thank you to all of you who have sent your sweet thoughts and congrats to me.  You are all SO kind.  She is a blessed little girl for sure and will enjoy seeing you all at the shop.

By the way, she went to her first flea market today!  What a proud day for mama!!
That's my girl!

Cold Hands Warm Heart

In the winter, in the shop, aka warehouse, it can be really cold! Colder than outside sometimes, until the heat kicks in.  Well, I usually warm up quickly, except for my hands, which are always ice cold!  Mom recently made me some hand warmer hearts.  They turned out adorable! 

This version however, I wouldn't recommend putting in the microwave to heat up.  They are beautifully adorned with little bunches of flowers, and are more of a little Valentine decoration, or ornament.

They would make the perfect little Valentine gift for someone special.

These are filled with rice, but you could also add lavender to the rice to make it a cute little sachet.

As a child I fell in love with these pretty millinery bunches.  Now they bring back sweet memories of my mom crafting when I was young.  They are still one of favorite things! 

A few of these would be so sweet strung on a special Valentine tree, or maybe across the top a young girls mirror.  Either way, they turned out perfect.  Now she just needs to make me the undecorated version for my pockets! Hint Hint!

Remember.....we are open this weekend, February 7th, 8th, and 9th from 10am -3pm.  Hope to see you!

Meet Mary Jane!

We have all been blessed lately with a very sweet little baby girl, Mary Jane.  My sister finally got her little girl.  In a house of all boys, she is a welcomed joy.  So  many of you wished my sister such sweet blessings, so I wanted to share with you some pictures of the baby. 
Isn't she just adorable?
She is such a pretty little thing. 

She looks a lot like my sister. 

When she is awake, she is so attentive and looks right at you when you talk to her.  It just makes your heart melt

We are so happy for Anne and Matt and the boys to finally have their little girl.  She makes their little family complete!  With three older brothers, she will surely be spoiled.
Soon enough she'll be at the shop with us for you to meet.  Until then, she'll be relaxing at home with Annie.

Mom and I will be open this Tuesday from 9am -12pm, and again this weekend.
