Bedroom Decor?

Yesterday my husband and I were in a local antique mall. I spotted this cute chicken across a large booth. Well I almost fell over myself to get to this kitchen towel Darling huh? Well I picked it up and it was two.... pillowcases! Now, this is not my idea of bedroom decorating, but who could pass these up? Not me! I thought I could cut them down and hem them to be kitchen towels.
It must have taken hours and hours to make these. I really appreciate all the time consuming work women in the past put into even the smallest of things, to bring beauty to the world!

Meet My Cat

I would like for you to meet my cat, Mr Fluff. Isn't he beautiful? Fluff is HUGE! I am not sure of his weight right now but it is at least 24 pounds. He is not overweight, he is just a gigantic cat. Also he is a ragdoll, so when I pick him up he is all floppy and actually difficult to manage. Fluff is a stubborn cat as well. He is intensely interested in shoes! He looooves them. Many of my best shoes have "love" scratches on them. No mater what we have tried, we cannot break him of this fascination. I suppose I should buy him his very own pair, maybe that would make him happy. Humm.............?

Unusual Summer

Here is another pic from our crabapple tree. This poor tree is so mixed up! Truthfully I think it is on its last legs. This is a final attempt to propagate itself. Sad really.

I have a couple of new things in the works for the shop, so keep checking in there.

Thrifting, Sweet Heart Soap, and Summer

Mom and I went thrifting the other day and these three things are what I found. The cute little pansy fabric is bright and crisp, and will probably be used in one of my patchwork purses.

The lovely dish will reside in the bathroom holding a pretty bar of Sweet Heart soap. For those of you who remember Sweet Heart soap it has long been out of the marketplace, but The Vermont Country Store has re-created it with the exact fragrance. It is wonderful!!!

We have had the strangest summer... as most of the world has had. Here is a pic of our crabapple tree with a few desperate blossoms in this late hot summer. It might reach 100 degrees today! Oh well, we had so much rain earlier this summer I think I won't say anything else.
