Princess Stocking

Found this adorable stocking and just had to get it for Micaela. It matches her bedroom perfectly. Of course I wanted to embroider it. The tricky part was I had to take it apart, embroider the cuff, and then re-sew it. It took alot longer than I expected but I was pleased with the result.

Hope you are having fun decorating for Christmas!

Santa Towel

Here's a Santa Dishtowel, I embroidered with of course our daughters name on it. I am making these for everyone I know...neighbors, teachers and friends... LOL. These are available in my Etsy store.

Thanksgiving Table

Just barely managed to take a quick picture of the table before packing up all of the fall decor and pulling out Christmas. Sorry it's just a placesetting picture, the rest was already packed before I realized I never took a picture this year...
Big Mix of dishes here....
  • The chargers are embossed with fall leaves, new-- got them this year.
  • The red scrolly plates are actually oversized dinner plates I got about 13 years ago when I was setting up my first townhouse in 1997. Only have four, wish I had at least 8. They were $20 at the time and I only managed 4 and a large serving bowl before the store sold out.
  • The bone china with gold rim is from my Dad's 2nd Mom and is nearly 100 years old. It's Pope Gosser China manufactured in the US in the early 1900's. The pattern is Washtonton and the back says "coin gold"-- something I have never seen before. My Dad says these were some of Mrs. MacDaniel's favorite plates and I am happy to have them.
  • The embossed plates are from Hobby Lobby... I have had them for about 10 years and luckly have several serving pieces in the same pattern.
  • The individual covered soup bowls I have had for about 10 years. I love these on the table and enjoy using them every year. I had the matching toureen and it broke during a move-- still recovering from that :(.

Thanks for stopping by....

Thanksgiving Program

Friday we had Micaela's Thanksgiving Program at school. Here's a snapshot of 120-something Native American Kindergarteners and 6+ Pilgrim teachers singing Thanksgiving songs...

Our Little Native American, we are so thankful!

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Daisy Scouts

Micaela is now a Daisy Scout, we are excited. I think I am more excited than she is. When I was little my Mom did not let me join Girl Scouts because she just didn't understand the concept, the language etc... I've been looking forward to this for a long time because part of my job involves presenting to Daisies, Brownies and Girl Scouts. Just listening to the girls recite their pledge brings tears to my eyes-- I am such a sap!

So anyway, Micaela just joined and I volunteered to embroider the girls names on the tunics.

Aggie Burp & Bib Set

A very special little Aggie named Reid was born recently. He had a difficult time during his arrival and first few days but Praise God he made it and is doing quite well. I thought he needed a very special burp cloth and bib for his feedings so I went on a hunt to find Aggie fabric. Luckily, I did not have to go far, I found some at Happiness is... Quilting in downtown McKinney. Sending this to a friend of a friend. Thanks for stopping by.
