That's my answer, if you're looking at the picture up there wondering what possessed me to spend part of my weekend hand stitching a bunch of coral colored tulle. I think she's pretty adorable, but the jury's still out, as... Continue reading

Well, it looks to me like a case of ask and you shall receive. (Yesterday I said I could handle another "snow day" from my grown up job, remember?) Eeeeeee! Snow plows were sent down to Portland from Seattle late... Continue reading

...and I'm as giddy as a school kid. (And, even better, unlike school children, we don't actually have to "make up" snow days!) We got another crazy winter snow storm here in the Portland Oregon area last night, and it... Continue reading

Both outfits came form the Carter's Outlet in Woodburn. It's a dangerous place for a Gramma!

My last little grand is turning O-N-E this month, and I got her some cutie patootie lil' outfits for her birthday. I wanted them to be extra special, so I ordered some handmade felted headbands from a darling etsy shop... Continue reading

It seems the entire nation got clobbered with extreme weather this past weekend, and the Pacific Northwest was gifted with a snow and ice storm that hit Saturday, and lingered through Sunday. This meant that we were forced-to-stay-home all weekend... Continue reading

...er....maybe I mean after. (As in, after the holidays...) Yikes. My booth at Camas Antiques looks downright scary right now. I spent last evening taking down the last of my holiday items (a few straggling banners and two small posters)... Continue reading

...and loving ever minute of it. It was a busy night of Valentine flag assembly for my booth.....something for everyone's taste. Colorful, vintage, and my signature book pages. Do you decorate or entertain for Valentines Day? Continue reading

My heart is thinking about the upcoming football playoff games, but my head is thinking it's time to be planning for Valentine's Day. I've been working on lots of new little items for the sweetest day of the year (Next... Continue reading

Thanks for the spell checks girls! I edited the post now, and hopefully it is more understandable! LOL! Tracey

We had the yummiest egg casserole for brunch on New Year's morning, and while I am thinking many folks have this recipe, or something similar, it was new to me, so I'm going to share it here today. My visiting... Continue reading

As I think I already shared, one of my bestest friends from the biggest little city is up for the New Year's holiday. We enjoyed a pretty amazing brunch yesterday, and typical Tracey-form, I was all about giving the table... Continue reading

Thanks, Audrey! The jello molds are sold in pairs, and are $2 each. Shipping would be $5 (no matter how many you buy) as they have to go in a box. Yes, the over-sized mugs are pretty stinkin' cute, priced at $21 for the pair. Shipping would be $5. Both the mugs and molds could fit in one box for $5 shipping. Please let me know if you are interested and you could pay through Paypal. Tracey

I printed mine on white cardstock, but you could also print it on cream, or any pastel color you like, as well as on old book pages. This is the perfect touch for a mantel, a hutch top, or over... Continue reading

True. I've got the planner to prove it. It's awesome, and, it's part of what makes me happy. It was a birthday present to me from my bestie at my grown up girl j-o-b, and I am loving it. So,... Continue reading

One of my resolutions for 2017 is to get ahead of the curve in crafting items for my booth space. It was a resolution for 2016 as well, but that ship clearly sailed. Anyway, I spend a portion of my... Continue reading

Maybe it's because I have been so busy, or because I am a little...ehem...older, but the days leading up to this Christmas (and Thanksgiving, for that matter.) flew right on by. We're enjoying the lights twinkling on the incredibly dried... Continue reading
