Thank You Thelma!

Thelma sent a bright and beautiful mug rug to participants that completed the Eventide quilt top.

It's so pretty! And went well with some Easter goodies.

I love post-it notes. And these are really pretty.

Are you planning to watch the royal wedding? We have friends gathering, to eat (of course!) and watch the wedding on DVR. And it's an opportunity to wear a hat.

I have a couple of smaller, vintage options, but I'm wanting a fuller hat. I'm totally inspired by Louise Green and love to look at the hats available on her website. But I really don't want to shell out the $300+ for a hat. But a girl can dream.

So maybe with what I have on hand--I can create something passable.

The hat is from Marshall's. The ribbon was $5 at Canton Trade days. And the bottles are from here, there, and yonder.

I'd better get busy!


  1. You might have missed the e-mail I sent you yesterday, so I thought I'd comment to cover all the bases.

  2. Haven't heard from you in ages, hope all is well.

  3. Hi! Thank you for visiting my blog! The garden shed you asked about is 8' deep by 12' wide. It's a kit from Lowe's. We went with the installation deal 'cause we thought the pieces would be too heavy for us. The installer did the job in only 5 hours and it probably would have taken us 5 days! lol
