WoRkInG FoR A LiViNg!!!♥

Over at our favorite farm.....hmmmmm which way today?

Getting ready~♥

 Here is a sampling of some beautiful things I found at two estate sales over the weekend~I am always so moved by these beautiful collections that someone cherished and has now is so very bittersweet~So I think the next best possible thing is to cherish them or let someone "find" them at the Coop and give them a proper home~we can consider them rescued from their damp musty cardboard boxes back into the light~♥

How pretty will this glassware look for the holidays~filled with candy or vintage Christmas ornaments~

 and these dishes....oh my....

 this is "Henny Penny" getting ready to be displayed at the Coop~♥
 A special cookbook~there were hundreds at the estate sale,,,,

Emma getting ready for her sleepover~♥

Emmas grandfather and I set up a bed right beside our bed so she can close her eyes at night with no worries~her older cousins don't mind sleeping in the loft but Emma would prefer something a little closer to! So to avoid some powerful kicks to my kidneys( when she sleeps with me...) my generous husband agreed to the above...♥ UPDATE!! So guess who slept in the little bed...and guess who was sprawled out in the middle of the queen bed (with her flashlight on)...Emma said, "I will sleep in my bed next!

Hearts for Christmas~♥

 My sewing room is waiting on the sun this morning~lots of rain and clouds lately~time to put on ALL the lamps~

Here I am using up all of my scraps from those wonderful old quilts~

                                                             What color....what color.....hmmmmm...

I think I need these for my own tree~or windows~or packages...♥

Off to the Coop!

Maggie waiting patiently for me to get my act together this morning..♥
 Upcycled squishy pillows~
 neckroll beauties~
 I am using upcycled vintage sheets for the backs~they are really 'one of a kind"
 This is a quote I have on my sewing room wall that I purchased from an artist in Concord at an open studio many years ago~I have met a lovely new artist at the Coop and will be sure to give her a copy for her new loft in New Hampshire~♥
so very true......
