Sunshine and Showers, Springtime and Flowers

What I'm wishing for, on this minus 10 degree day, not including the windchill factor!    Looking out at the heaps of snow, and planning our spring garden. 
I have been working on my goods for Deerfield Spring Sampler..... can't wait for the show as cabin fever is setting in from being stuck inside. 
A glimpse of some really nice garden things by our hafair team on etsy.... please peek if you get a chance.  Enjoy your day!

Here Kitty Kitty....

A quick little treasury to start the morning.   
We are spending much of the day doing ice dam removal at my mom's house..... what a winter.  More snow and ice and freezing rain is in the forecast.   I am longing for spring, more than ever!    It's been a sad winter, and the snow is making it so much worse. 
After finishing there we are working on goods for Deerfield.  I am counting the days.

Family Day

Woot!  We are off for a few hours of fun.... Today is Family Day at our area Salvation Army stores!   I don't go very often anymore, as we got out of the habit when taking care of my stepdad.  But my mom is lonely and she said it sounded like fun.    I have had great success with finding fabrics here.... wool, velvet, old cotton sheets for dolls, and the list is endless. 
 Now mind you, the last time we went to this big store it was hubby's job to push the cart while I looked for treasures.   After two hours of shopping he was near the register, and I needed to look in one more aisle.  Next thing, he was looking for comfy clothing for my stepdad, and when I asked him where the cart was.... well oh my, you do NOT leave a cart unattended on Family Day!!!!!  So much for that.  But all's well that ends well..... I made him take me out to eat instead of chewing on him!  haha!
After shopping I have an order to finish and some more creations for the Deerfield Spring Sampler....which is on our doorstep.   A label I use for my beeskep tags.... sharing with you for your own creations.  
Hope your day is awesome wherever you may be...

Snow and More Snow!

Tis is snowy winter here and I am feeling the urge to put my thoughts to page once again.  We lost my dear stepdad a few weeks ago after devoting the past year to caring for him.  It will take some time to find a new way without him. 
Matt was especially devoted to him, and caring for Tom gave him a strong sense of self worth.   My mom is so lost right now and I am thankful to live next door.  I am just heartbroken in so many ways.  I think with age, change comes harder....
After a lot of sleepless nights weighing the prospect of how to move forward, we have both come to the conclusion that some changes are in order at this time.  I am removing some major stressors from my daily life.   We will be working more on the website, and patterns, and online venues. 
I will still do my favorite shows.... Deerfield, Walker Homestead, and Wethersfield have been very dear to our hearts.  We find comfort in our show people and our customers alike.  But I must also keep my mom foremost.... she has had a rough year and needs us now more than ever. 
I am working on goods for Deerfield Spring Sampler.... so looking forward to it.  Sadly I lost one of my favorite customers a short time ago.  She was a remarkable woman, with great grace and glee despite her illness.  Every show she came to she would shriek with joy, and grab me and give me the biggest bear hug.   I will miss that.   
But.... it gave me a bit of solace to think that perhaps when Tom passed, that she was grabbing him, and greeting him, and dancing, and saying " I know Denise too".  
with love, on this snowy winter day.
