A Day at the Beach

We have sea glass.....and it is awesome!!
This authentic sea glass is a total treasure.
Found piece by piece on various shores.

Sounds like a lovely way to spend the day,
and based on how much sea glass these treasure hunters have acquired....
I think they spend a lot of time at the beach.

White, green, brown and this beautiful aqua are available in the shop.
Sorted by color or for you to scoop.
It's fun to look at each piece and find it's special features.
Some with numbers or letters,
some with a great texture, and some just feel good to the touch.
I see some jewelry with sea glass in my future.

Country Living Fair.....

September 18,19 and 20th
We are in a panic at the shop preparing for another Country Living Fair.
It's the highlight of our year and the most stressful.
We are busy working on so many projects.
Everyday is a new "to do" list to get done.
We can't wait and we worry that it's coming too soon.
But...It will be fine. We will be ready and we will look great!
We just have to keep repeating that over and over.
We're working on a newsletter to introduce our "plans" for the show.
That will be in e-mail boxes early this week.

Stitch It

This book is awesome....full of inspiration!
A fresh take on soft furnishings,
with inventive ideas for using vintage and new fabrics in the home.
It's full of color and design ideas, with a chapter dedicated to some of our favorite designers, including Cath Kidston, Tricia Guild and others.
And don't judge this book by it's cover....
It's so much more than sewing ideas. (but there are some great ideas)
Stop in for your own copy.
