WIWW: December 21-27, 2014

Happy New Year’s Eve… and another week of What I Wore Wednesday! What I Wore Wednesday is my motivation for wearing the clothes I own, finding new ways to mix and match outfits, and not wearing the same three things all the time! I kept a fashion diary for the entire year of 2012, in… Continue reading WIWW: December 21-27, 2014

Last week we drove to Alabama to visit with my family for Christmas. It was a lovely few days – plenty to do, lots of great meals, a few visits squeezed in with family and friends, and enough time to actually relax (the hot tub helps!).

Meow Monday: Cozy Cats

We’re coming off a productive weekend of packing, a friend spending the night, getting ready for the holidays, and now a two day work week. The cats aren’t thrilled with all the activity, but they still found plenty of time to be lazy cozy as usual… (I am also loving the beautiful background quilt!)  … Continue reading Meow Monday: Cozy Cats

DIY Gifts: QAYG Patchwork Tree Table Runner

(Quick Note: I should be posting an update on the Fair Isle Quilt today… but I honestly didn’t make much progress in the last week.
