Jar ‘O’ Strawberries

Lately we have been eating a lot of these. And a lot of pretty much any other kind of berry out there. There is just something about berries that means summer to me, doesn't it? Especially summer at the river. With a lot of kids nonetheless. We've certainly been having a lot of kids and a lot of berries! All of this berry eating reminded me of some lovely little jars that we had made up for a special event a while back and that we had a couple dozen leftover. I have been enjoying them all in a sweet little stack in the shipping office but thought it might be time to share the goodies. Thought I would offer them to you guys just in case you weren't getting your fair share of strawberries lately…   … kit comes in this jar…

Flea Market Find

Just wanted to share my favorite new flea market rescue. I love EVERYTHING about this quilt! The design, the colors, the texture and depth, even the "tatteredness" of it all. It has so much life and personality! Part of me always feels sad when I find a wonderful quilt like this one because I feel like the family of the maker should be enjoying and cherishing it and passing it down from generation to generation. It is such a shame that it finds itself in a flea market stall. The other part of me is literally giddy that I stumbled across it and can make a new home for it along with the rest of its "friends" in my collection. I always feel like I am getting away with some great secret when I find one of these beauties for pennies of what I think it…
