Goings On~

Hello! friends~

It has been busy around here. This week we are taking a break from school work. Yeah!! I have been working on some much needed projects.

Yesterday, I cleaned out our basement and filled our van with things to pass on to our local thrift store. We have an 8 passenger mini-van and when I was done loading it all in there was only room for three of us to ride in it. I already have two more bags packed and ready to go. I have had such a great time uncluttering. What a relief it is. I don't know why I was hanging on to so much stuff.






I made this little banner for my secret farmgirl pal at MaryJanes Farm. I hope she enjoyed it. I crocheted an edging on felt hearts and added some vintage pics to them along with some buttons. I just love buttons.















This is a tea cozy I made for a tea cozy swap at MaryJanes Farm. I am having so much fun making all these different things for the swaps. I hope my partner enjoys it. Now I need some ideas for little tea extras to send along with it. Do you have any you would like to share.





I really enjoy making all these things and I never had anyone who enjoyed receiving them. Now I am delighted to have met a group of women who love the same things I do. I have so much fun making these little gifts to send. I hope they are enjoying them, too.



I received this wonderful apron last week from my secret farmgirl pal. I love the black/pink color combo. It is such a cute apron. I love to wear it.

Thank you, Marcy!!!!!!! You were an awesome secret pal. I enjoyed all your little treats and cards.
