Elyse came to Visit!!!....and FINALLY the Giveaway in honor of her visit!!...


Gloomy day here...perfect for sewing and blogging...hmmmm...and making Tollhouse Cookies!...YUM!!!!...Ah...the perks (or dangers!!!) of working at home...Such Heaven!...
I had a really fun weekend!...The Adorable Elyse and her Sweet Sister Betsy traveled to the Cape for a girlie weekend and stopped by for a visit!...but first they stopped in down the road (up the road??) at Marilee's Lovely Shop Rose Briar Studio!!...Check out Elyse's blog Cottage for some great pictures of Marilee's Shop!...http://tinkeredtreasures.blogspot.com/...(I LOVE those Vintage Wedding Girls in the pic! I'm going to have to stay away!!)...
Then they stopped in to see me!!...YIPPEE!!!...Elyse brought me a Package of her Sweet Little Treasures!!!...She is so very Talented and has such a cool way of putting things together...We had so much fun!...It's really funny how you can meet a person...and feel as though you've known them FOREVER!...That's what happened the first time I met this Sweet Girl...I mean truly...How can you not love a person that gives you photo editing priviliges on THEIR blog!...and when you tell them that you hate and despise the picture of you (because you are EXTREMELY vain and silly!)...they post THIS one instead!...Which I must say is a VERY accurate Likeness of me!...Giggle!...

THAT reminds me...(not Barbie!...but Elyse's visit!)..The giveaway!...The Great Big Wonderful giveaway that was suppose to happen the FIRST time that Elyse came to visit!...Well...I suppose...better late than never...
There are some Pretty Nifty things...even if I do say so myself!..

Lot's of Pretty Bits that I love...

Sweet Mermaid Trinket box...more Vintage Pink Forget-me-nots but this time in a cute paper nest!...

SO!...Bunches of really pretty things that I love and hope that you will too!...also a couple of Surprises (I love NICE surprises!!!)...that I didn't have time to Photograph!...Okie Dokie...since it's my first Giveaway...I'll do it the way Others have...just leave a comment on this post...between now and....hmmm....I hate waiting...don't you?...let's say....and Next Wednesday November 4th!...I'll draw the winner that night and let you know on Thursday!...Sounds like a plan!...I'm excited!...Hope you are too!!!...Till next time!...hugs!...

Randomness....

O.K....Here's some silly randomness for the day...Some Construction Guys are busily ripping up the street in front of the House/shop...makes for a very quiet (customer-wise!!) day!...Not so quiet in the noise sense but...You guys have been asking for a Kitty update...snapped these pics this weekend also quiet because of the Monsoon like weather that we had!...Here's Rosie...she thinks this is HER bed!...Usually I will find her sound asleep under the Lampshade...silly Kitty!...


Are YOU lookin' at ME???

Now Lucy on the other hand prefers the Quilt Cupboard....

Ah...and here's Kate...she just can't seem to stand seeing a sleeping Kitty without Shrieking how cute they are...which promptly scares the you know what out of them and wakes them up!...She's a piece of work My Kate is!..

Now, Lastly...Is a pillow that I just finished...LOVE it...I was inspired By Rachel Ashwell's newest book!...There's what looks to be a tattered, vintage round pink pillow on the cover and then again shown in the book...LOVED this book!... I personally think it's her best one yet!...LOVE the big pictures...Love the story...it's just really, really inspiring!...and she is amazing...anyway..I think this pillow just might be a keeper!...OK...I'm gonna go see if I can actually get something done today...Hey!...Let me know what YOU think of Rachel's new book!...love to hear your thoughts!...OH!!!...and since this is a random post...I guess I'll throw in that I haven't forgotten about my give-a-way!!...Just been SO busy!...BUT...it's definitely gonna be soon!!!...Talk soon!...OH...Oh!!!...and just look!...check out the ever Fabulous Fifi!!...The link is on the sidebar...(Yup!...I can link on the sidebar...just not in the posts!!!...GRRR!!!)Her FiFi TV is just...well...FABULOUS!!!...Till later!...

Catching Up....and Pretty Things that Sparkle!


This Weekend was just the Best!...I would say an Old Friend..but THAT just sounds wrong...so I'm gonna say the friend that I've KNOWN the longest...came for the weekend!...I've lived here on the Cape for 12 Years...12 YEARS!..(Mind you we grew up together...lived right across the street and in the same town for most of our lives...)BUT...this is the first time she's been here!!... to visit!!...
In your Childhood or I guess I should say Pre-Teen years...did you ever meet someone and Know...just Know...that the world you lived in had just changed in a BIG way...That it was really never, ever gonna be the same...that this new friend was gonna rock your world...and shake things up...Well this is the chickie pie that did just that...from the minute she moved in across the street in the summer before 7th grade with her cool (no one in town had ever seen never mind thought of!!) BLACK fingernail polish...I just knew...interesting things were gonna happen...and Boy did they ever!...I won't divulge the details (OK...maybe JUST one...One Day my Mom was looking out the front window (we lived on Main St.) and said...Well...If I didn't know any better I'd say I just saw Andra drive by in the Mercury..and Me with a stricken look on my face trying to be all innocent said...Of course It's not Andra! Why would she be driving the Merc??... (we were only like,13 at the time!)but it most definitely WAS Andra!) course those were very different times...much more innocent...and kids didn't end up in Jail for stuff like that!... It was truly FUNNY then!!!.....)... We picked up right where we had left off 12 years ago as if no time at all had passed...After she had left yesterday...My kids were talking...they were saying how much fun she was...how crazy...and interesting...and cool!!!...and then...as they were talking and kidding with each other...one of them said...Yeah...it was just like having two of Mom around!...and they all laughed and agreed...Me!...just like having two of ME around!...did you hear what they said...she was FUN...and COOL...and Interesting! (Oh, I bet you noticed I left out the crazy part! uh huh, that's right...LEFT OUT THE CRAZY PART!!!...chuckle!)...I gotta say...THAT was probably...almost the best part of the whole weekend...my kids...thinkin'...That I am cool...interesting and fun (STOP bringing up the crazy part!!!)...Hmmmm...I think my job as a Mother is done...I can finally rest...I'm COOOOL!

Oh Jeeze...Sam is complaining that he doesn't have clean boxers for school tomorrow and Kate actually wants dinner...and T wants to borrow $10 for gas...sigh...OK...maybe not done yet...but that's OK...what would be the FUN in THAT???...


See all these Pretty Sparkly yummy things??...These are all Andra's designs...VERY talented...even if she is crazy!!!!...HA!!!!...

Did YOU ever have someone come into your life like that???...do you still see them??.. I wanna KNOW!!!...
