Thank you so much, Penny! I'm so glad you're liking these sheets. I am having fun with them, too. :-) Hope you had a nice weekend ... it went by too fast for my taste!
Thank you all so much! :-)
Oh Lisa, BLESS you! Thank you so much for your beautiful prayers for our dear son. You cannot know what they mean to me!! <3 (And p.s. EB is doing much better, praise God!)
Hello my friends, and Happy Sunday! :) Can you believe it's June already?! We're nearly to the midpoint of 2017 and the weeks are just flying by - too fast for me to keep up it would seem, since this... Continue reading

Thank you! Thanksgiving, 2015! :-)
Thanks so much, Denise! :-)
Thank you very much, Shirley-Ann! :-)
Thank you, Penny! You would be welcome anytime in my schoolroom! (In any room, actually!)
Yes, I am SO glad we've kept it! It's seen better days - lists to one side, lol - but the boys have all loved it and Little Bear is no exception! :-)
Thanks, Joanna! :-)
Oh my gosh, Karen - this just made my day! <3 Thank you so much, for sharing these kind sentiments. :-) As for the book holder ... it's quite old actually, something I picked up at an antiques barn MANY years ago when Bill and I were first married. It's made of a bendable wire frame - kind of like a coat hanger. It's very flexible and surprisingly sturdy! Hope all is well with you and your family, Karen. Thank you very much for reading and commenting!
Thank you, Andrea! :-)
Penny, thank you so much for these very kind words! I too want my own nature table! I kind of have one - I've made the windowsill above my kitchen sink "my nature space." I keep a candle there and any little blooming things I find or pretty stones, acorns, pinecones, etc. Anything that represents the season. It's a small spot but it's out of the little guys' reach! (And by guys I mean, Little Bear AND the cats!) I hope you have fun setting up yours .... this is the perfect time of year to start one! :-)
Hi Helena! Thanks so much. :) We bought that rug at a Babies R Us last year. It was in a bin near the registers - not sure if they still sell them. I'll take a peek next time I'm there! :)
Hello my friends, and Happy Weekend! If you've read my blog for any length of time then you know I frequently post about my file crate system - a kind of "tickler file" arrangement I've been using for many years.... Continue reading

Lol, it's good to go a little "crazy" sometimes! I often make a leap without thinking too much because if I did, I'd never do anything! (I'm very much a creature of comfort!) Thanks so much for your comments. :-) Take care! ~ Dawn
