Bloom where you are planted :-)

I’ve always loved that little saying. I remember it from when I was but a little girl…… and that was a loooong time ago!

I was fortunate to find these two little pieces that make such a nice couple hanging about together. They were purchased from two adorable Etsy sellers. The frame with chicken wire and green glass knobs comes from Antebelle. I found Antebelle through my daughter’s website, Handmade in PA, that promotes and supports Artisan/crafters of Pennsylvania


Hanging on the frame is a sweet little sign that says “bloom”! It has a wire hanger that curls into a bow at the top. And where do I get so many of my signs? From Donna at WhimsyTwo, of course!


I pray this Sunday finds you happily blooming where ever you have been planted! ((hugs)) Rosie

Country Lanes Market Bag Tote




 Let’s stroll along the back roads ….. along a path beside a stream. 











Tuck a bottle of wine, a crusty loaf of bread and a wedge of cheese in your new market bag and make a day of it.






Ahhh……to dream of a Spring day and a picnic packed for two.
Spring Dreams, my friends!

Are you an Earring Floozie?

Sorry Abbie, I had to copy your clever title.

I love earrings about as much as I love fabric …. only I don’t have as much in my stash! Look at these lovelies!

Some of my favorites!

All of these were made by the lovely Pink Purl (Tracy) in Norway! She has a wonderful blog and an Etsy Shop that I have to use great will power not to visit on a daily basis. It’s so hard to come away empty handed. I was able to get some wonderful gifts for my girls for Christmas and for myself 🙂

Now I know I am partial to big dangly earrings but trust me, Tracy makes earrings of all sizes and I am sure you will find something you love. Bookmark her shop and visit often ….. you know, I do ;-0

French Country Market Bag Tote

Oh, what a winter! I have mostly been on the couch. I hate how the cold affects me even when I don’t go out of the house.

Whine, whine, whine …. I feel like that’s all I do. ~ “Honey, could you put another log in the wood stove?” ~ “Oh Honey, my warm mist humidifier needs filled up …. please…..”

My sewing machines are crying for attention. However, I did get one more done last week. (see below) and I cleaned the house up for company. HA! Guess I should invite people over more often. LOL

I thought I was going to get more done but I keep playing with that darn embroidery machine! Oh well, today is another day 🙂

Almost relapsed….

……no, no,no! The past few days just went by so fast, I didn’t have time to write a blog ……but I did have time to take a nap 🙂

Naptime with Lola

Naptime with Lola

Actually, I had been up since 3am and when that little snuggler went to sleep on MumMum, I guess it was just too much for this old girl, I swear I only drifted off for a minute 🙂

HA! I guess that’s how Hubby caught me on his IPhone. And, daughter had the nerve to say I slept for 20 minutes and I snored! LOL! Oh, the shame 🙂

After our nap, Lola and I ran the embroidery machine.


Lola is captivated by how the machine works. I bet by the time she is 2 she’ll be asking if she can push the buttons 🙂

And then, we turned them into little pouches for the Rosie’s Whimsy Etsy Shop 🙂 Lola and I had a busy, busy day!

It was a great visit from Tara and little Lola.

I will be busy at the sewing machine for a couple days so I might lapse again but I’ll try at least to post pictures of what I make.

Have the Best of Weeks!
