Trying to manage to keep life simple and happy in a crooked, old, pet-filled farmhouse with an idea crazy dreamer for a husband!
Interests: Making good food from organic ingredients, living simply, running (not too fast), dreaming of traveling, sewing without patterns, photographing pretty things, and knitting with natural fibers. Oh, and cleaning up after my busy and curious little babe!

Mom, I believe Barb Myers donated that fabric for a yard sale back when I was trying to raise money to bring Herma over from Romania.

A stuffed fox! That sounds super cute! I'll have to keep that in mind...my little babe is into hedgehogs at the moment.
That is the hard part - finding a 100% wool sweater AND finding one that isn't TOO nice to felt and cut!
I am more of a free flow person, but only have 1 little babe to deal with! If it is nice out, we go! If its raining and too cold, we read, clean, and bake!

I drool over the Garnet Hill catalogs, especially the holiday ones - they do Christmas so darn well! But, then I remind myself that it is just stuff made in China and I recycle the catalog, telling myself that I should be able to make some of the things in there anyway, like your garland. My little babe would absolutley love that mouse and I love the idea of Black Friday backlash - I'm doing a post on alternative give ideas tomorrow.

I told you earlier in the week that I've been feeling a bit crafty lately. I really need to take the time to make a list of all the things that I want to do. I normally think of them while I'm lying in bed with the little babe, trying... Continue reading

Thanks for sharing your favorite Aurora! Hope things are going well with your full household!
The woodstove is an animal magnet! However, the poor cats get chased out of the room by the dogs.

Hon, it was more about me deciding that now was the time, rather than dogging you about doing it.

I finally got to see sun shining through it yesterday afternoon, after a cold and gray morning!

Not much clean snow in our dog filled yard Tracey!

I know Chrisy, this big world is amazing, isn't it? You're having a heat wave, we're having an early cold snap, and we're able to tell each other about it from other sides of the planet!

Thanks CJ - I'm on the mend. Still doing two mugs of echinacea tea a day! Right now she is learning that carpenters go "boom and bang" - we'll see what she picks up as she gets older.

The cold is on its way out - I was able to go for a run this morning. I am SO excited about the flooring, but then will have to wait for the drywall to be complete!

Christina - so glad that you felt inspired to join me for Thankful Tuesday! Leaving your link in the comments is perfect - I don't have a fancy linky set-up. You got your pup just in time - now you have a lap warmer for the winter!

Corgis make us smile!
Good to meet you Lynn! Always happy to have more people at the party!
Much simpler and faster than knitting a tunic - give it a try!
Thanks Ing. She was having a wild hair day!
It's just a red plastic (to my chagrin) bath toy - nothing special.
