Tartan, plaid, and tweed. Argyle socks and a cashmere coat. Will you take your tea with one plaid, or two? There is fresh baked bread studded with sultanas, and real butter and clover honey. blarney.com  ...

Kathy, this quilt is precious!  Loved learning about your mother pieced it together with love.  Fond memories will come to you every time you look at it!  Thanks for sharing with SYC.

My sweet mama has been gone for 42 years, and I miss her still.  During the winter months when she couldn't get outside to garden, she would take  scraps of fabric from old clothing that had become worn, or outgrown, cut it i...

Susan, your tea is absolutely delightful!  Love, love the depression glass plates and the bunny teapot and gorgeous teacup all make it so special!  Can't wait to start pulling out a few of my bunny things.  I am chomping at the bits to try Bernideens scones and thank you dear friend for the shout out of my Spring Green Tea!  Love having you at SYC!

I enjoyed the tour of your garden Rita.  I have worked in mine 3 times and lots of things are coming up and some things are already getting large due to our non existing winter.  We literally have had snow twice and it didn't last long.  I have loved the warm weather, but we won't be loving it this summer if we don't get more moisture.  Yellow and purple is my favorite garden combo as well. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
hugs,
Jann
February is a good time to get outside, in the garden, and survey what's going on (if you're not snowed under), see what might be showing early signs of spring, what looks dead, and what needs pruned. We won't talk about what...

I am still in awe of your fabulous collection Rita!  Hopefully, I can continue to grow mine.  Just so fun to run across a piece now and then!!  Thanks for sharing it with SYC.

I shared a part of my jadeite collection, the kitchenware, in my last post, as well as a sneak peek into the rest of my collection (see photo below). After reading Country Living's article in their March issue on collecting j...

Oh my Rita, I am in Jadite heaven!  I just started collection a few years ago.  I am frugal and can't bring myself to pay outrageous prices, so my collection has grown slowly.  4 saucers, 3 teacups, and one mug that I found at thrift shops. A set of measuring cups, one missing and one has a chip;  $4 at an estate sale.  A pepper shaker I bought at a consignment shop in CA, and I my sil, just found me six plates in VA.  I paid $20 each for them, but never see any here.  I would die to have a large collection like yours!  Can't wait to see part 2.  Thanks for sharing with SYC.  I can already say that I will be featuring you next week. lol!  I am going to get that book on Amazon.  Thanks!
hugs,
Jann
After reading The Collector's Guide to Jadeite article in the March issue of Country Living magazine, I decided to unwrap my own jadeite kitchenware collection to see just exactly what I have amassed over the years. I admit, ...

Good for you!  I am trying to read the New Testament this year.  I really don't think I have ever read the entire thing.  Sad to admit!  Thanks for sharing with SYC.

It's actually fun to read with a group.  It is just one chapter a day.  When we finish Exodus, we will begin Matthew in time for Easter.

Story
Introduction

I'm a mother of 5 married children,   I have 9 darling grand children ranging from age 18 to  1 year old..  They all have such fun and crazy personalities.  They help to keep me young.  My husband is an engineer with a funny personality that shows up at the most unexpected times.  He has most people fooled into thinking that he's a very serious guy.-Not So!  I love the outdoors and love to garden.  Just something about getting my hands into that dirt that I can't explain.  Mother Nature has a hold on me!  Love quilting almost as much as gardening.  Fabrics just seem to call me by name.  Also love decorating my home and thrifting.  If it's chippy, shabby, or rusty, I have instant love.
