I've been sewing...

Quite a bit lately....and I'm really enjoying it. It's a great feeling to take some random pieces of fabric and turn them into something.

Here's just a couple of the things I've put together....some stockings with French General Fabric....

and my Numbered Napkins.

Both items are available in my etsy or on my website....

gotta go now....

I hear some vintage linen calling me.

One room my farmhouse is desperately missing is a mudroom.

I dream of a mudroom that can handle laundry...flower arranging...backpacks...and of course...mud.

While other women might be dreaming of owning a diamond ring from Tiffany's....

this girl dreams of a mudroom.

I love my home.

It's one of my favorite places to be.

This morning....as I sit in a sun drenched living room...I get to look out onto a beautiful view....it's gorgeous here today....this time last year we already had snow.

On beautiful days like this....the outdoors just beckon me....

I think I'll get a cup of french press coffee...and sit outside with my girls.

I truly feel blessed everyday.

A Prairie Peek

Here it is.....

a peek into Fifi's book....Romantic Prairie Style....which will be available in April 2011. The cover features the amazing room of Maria from Dreamy Whites....is that not one of the most beautiful covers ever.

To say I'm anxious to see the rest of the book is an understatement.....with the talents of Mark Lohman as photographer and Fifi O'Neill as writer and stylist.....this is sure to be an amazing book.

Wanna make sure you get a copy....you can pre-order it on Amazon now....click here for the direct link.

The Whistle Stop

Looking for a quaint little shop....

look no further....

Laurie and Robert own a darling shop in Elkhorn, Nebraska called The Whistle Stop.

They are some of the nicest people you could meet and have a keen eye for finding great "stuff" to fill their shop.

The great thing is that they are now open every Saturday and not just for special sales.

You can visit The Whistle Stop online here....or go by and say "hi" in person...I know they'd love to meet ya.

The Whistle Stop Country Store

Their next show is "Deck the Halls" on November 4, 5, and 6.

Oh....and the photo above has nothing to do with this post....other than this weekend was filled with muffin eating...cupcake baking....and pound cake making.
