How do you like my mess...

Good Morning all.  I was informed that I have not blogged for 2 days, the penalty being I have to list 10 thankfuls....so I will do that first.

-  Joan brought in 3 pieces of ironstone for my on Saturday to the shop, they are beautiful of course, thank you Joan!  We have our own personal shopper.
-  Football, I just love it, even though the Steelers didn't win : ( , but now all the games are over til fall.
-  Bubble baths, they are so relaxing.
-  Magazines, I have a problem with magazines, I can never wait til the next issue comes out...
-  I am thankful for the warmish weather we are having today, and I actually see a little sun.
-  I am also thankful because it is February, which means it will soon be March, then April, and warmer each day...
-  I am thankful I have a sewing room to work in, although it is a mess as you will soon see...
ok I know its only 7 thankfuls, but thats the best I can do this morning!

Now, I have been working on a new project, but I can't show it until it's finished, because it is a gift to someone I am very thankful for (there's number 8).  But I did want to show part of my sewing room, which is an absolute disaster right now!  So I'm only showing the part that is clean!


  1. LOVE IT!!!! It reminds me of mine!!!!
    Fun Fun Fun to see that I'm not the only one who loves those linens.
    Stop by my blog for my newest giveaway....it's a pretty one!!!!
    Hugs, Amy (Mom to the Four Sisters)

  2. what mess? I don't see a mess, just a collection of beautiful stuff !!!

  3. This is a Mess ? I don't think so ,you should see my sewing room. My sister calls it being creative.

  4. I'm so tickled to see my garden piece above your shelves. I think your sewing room looks so inviting to dive right in and create something super!!

  5. I think your sewing room loooks inviting, wouldn't it be fun to do a sewing room tour,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,HUGS MARY
