It's Gonna be OKAY


Sometimes we just need a reminder...when the world seems like it is falling apart, friends re-unite, family sticks together and YOU and I.... welllllll, we EMBRACE the MOMENTS that make our
MEMORIES.....





JUST KNOW you MATTER!.
Always...

Cleaning up HOUSE..... with a scrubbie dub dub

WE  , actually I have been cleaning up lot's these days...
for instance, MICE, yep, apparently we have a MICE problem..
Or rather WE HAD a  mice problem...

Sumo and Monchat are wonderful mice catchers, but that is all they do- 
they catch them and bring us these gifts...And most would be completely flattered
by their sentimental giving....but not ME....

So we hired an exterminator...found out their entry point
and traps were laid, and for a week now...NO MICE gifts....






( the mice on my pouch is so cute, but to me they look like my character mice...
I sooooo despise them with all of my heart ) lol

The end of yet another chapter and season



First can I just add here how nice it was to see  your 
comments to the COST of the Cape Cod home... ( post below) 
Will let you know more when we return from seeing more
homes in that area.....Will share our findings and why I asked 
within a couple of weeks ...OK?

What would this home cost you in your area, state, province, country?

We are entertaining a move.... Love to know what this home with view would cost you in your Country or STATE....What would you pay for something like this....add your amount in your currency and I will do the conversion..?


We are leaning towards a Cape Cod style in a rural area that will require a bit of work...
(by the way it is move in ready, we would just want to add a few things) 
 it is surrounded by forests/woods and  we would begin with renovating the kitchen,
the rest of the home we love....so much character. ( now this is one of a few choices )

Let's DRESS .... Our Powder rooms and kitchens...

Are you ever  influenced by one word....? for me these days it has been DRESS...like let's DRESS things....dolls, towels, soap dispensers and now HAND Dresses for our powder rooms...

This whole week I have been making dresses....I also completed some projects that will be showcased in October... but DRESSES have clouded my thoughts to the point of ...

Well you tell me....

What is unique about these Hand Dresses is they are made from towels
and one towel can make 2 Hand Dresses...
these are like halters....This pattern will come with 2 difference
bodices.... YOU can make both !

( will complete patterns this week, Tuesday ...) 


I chose these pumpkins and some very bright orange dots..
a wee bow just finishes it off...

Soap DRESS.... I just LOVE BEING A GIRL! with update



Could a MAN come up with this?...POSSIBLY...since most great designers
have been MEN...

But I came up with it...
yes I did...

I was looking at my hand soap dispenser..
( ok, it took me shopping for a variety of hand soap containers that would
 be perfectly suited for the pattern I had in my mind)

BUT I  FOUND ONE...and it is great  hand soap too.
I have been using this brand for quite a few years. 
And it looked soooooo sterile without a SOAPDRESS...

So I designed this ruffled and gathered dress and it just slips on and off
to be laundered. I will make a few more today, as I need to perfect the pattern
just a tad more...
