This home away from home belongs to my very good friends Nan and Gary , they have been parked in my yard for a couple of days waiting for me to get ready to leave with them on Saturday , I will be spending two weeks with them in it , as we travel up to and around Indiana visiting the past .
They say you can never go home , we will see about that .
All instructions have been left with the kids and grandkids who are taking care of my cottage and garden while I am gone . Luckily they live next door .
So I won’t be writing much for the next two weeks , although I will have my laptop with me . I will try to check in on everyone along the way , and hopefully I will have lots to blog about when I get back .
See you soon !
Look out Indiana , here I come !

I was having a hard time coming up with something to blog about , because I have several projects in the making and a vacation coming up , but nothing finished .
Then I remembered that my sister and I got together and photographed some of our “ Sweetie Pies’ “ stuff for an application to a new show for us .
These pictures are a combination of Pam’s , Our buddy Billie , and my handy work.
As you can see , between the three of us we do a lot of fabric crafts .
You can click on these pictures to get a closer look .
Anyway , we are waiting to see if we get into this show .
I like a juried show , because it is all handcrafted items and art .
I am running late , but I am going to link this with Beverly’s
Have a great weekend !

I don’t have any new whites to post about this week , But I happened to notice that in two weeks it will be my one year blogging anniversary. I can’t believe it’s almost a year since I started this blog.
I have learned so much , and made so many wonderful blog friends.
The inspiration I get from the blogs I follow is amazing !
So I thought I would go back and pull some pictures from past posts for this White Wednesday post.
So there it is , a sort of year in white review.
And yes I’m linking up with Kathleen at Faded Charm for White Wednesday !
And a sweet thank you to all my sweet followers . You encourage me , lift me up when I’m down , and inspire me to no end.
Love you so much !

I have been busy this week watching my grandbaby , his daycare takes the whole month of July off .
So I haven’t been able to work on many projects.
But I have been enjoying the summer weather , even though it is hot . I mean , that is what summer is about isn’t it ?
I started looking around for things that reminded me of summer fun , I found this old pop case in the garage , we bought it years ago at a flea market to use for displays at craft shows .
It makes me think of boating and stopping for a refreshing drink.
Did you ever hear of 3V Cola ?
Then I pulled out this vintage look sand pail and shovel , it’s a reproduction but it reminds me so much of my childhood and playing in the sand around Lake Michigan , Ahhh , those were great summers.
Then I picked some wild flowers and a few flowers from the yard and added them to a covered jar. and then added a few things that made me think of picnics.
Now I have a summer vignette centerpiece .
I’m heading up to Indiana in a couple of weeks , going to a high school reunion , getting together with a lot of old friends.
I hope to get a chance to go out to the lake and put my toes in the sand again . I spent so many summer days there as a kid .
I hope you all are having a great summer !
I think I’ll link this up with Debra’s Vintage Inspiration Friday .
Head over there for the party !

I finally got all the tote bags that I had orders for finished and shipped out. So I figured it was time to make a few more to show you. These are all made similar to the red one that went so well last time .
The first 3 all have Graphic Fairy graphics on them , I just love her blog !
I couldn't’t put a graphic on this last one , it was impossible to match the ink to the fabric , but that’s okay it’s still my favorite , and the reason I’m linking this post to Pink Saturday .
I love this shade of pink !
I can make more of the first 3 , but should more than one person want this pink one the lace will be different , this is all I have of this one .
I do not have these in my etsy shop , if you want one just e-mail me .
So that’s what I’ve been doing the last two days , What have you been up to ?
And What are you doing for the long July 4th weekend ?
I’m doing a lot of this …
And Happy 4th of July !
God Bless America !
