Bring your kid to work day ~ again :)

Hi, this is Lydia.   Today is bring your kid to work day and I'm helping my mom.  

She is getting ready for a show at Audrey's (1824 Antiques) and today she is teaching me how to make strawberries and get ready for a show.  It's a lot of work.

 This is me laughing because my mom just braided my hair really fast for the pictures.

First we made a pattern using this design.  It was really easy.

 I'm tracing the pattern I just made.  I used a plate for the circle.

I'm screaming because I accidentally pushed the peddle down too hard and it went really fast.

 That's better.

Here's the first one.

We made ten altogether. 


 What do you think?

See ya next year!  Lydia :)

Yearning for Spring


Hello Everyone!

It sure has been a while.  Everyone in our house has been sick for March, taking turns.  It is still cold outside and spring has hardly sprung.  But the sun is shining today and the weatherman says it's suppose to warm up tomorrow and through the weekend ~ yipee!

I've dug some daffodils and other little bulbs from the garden to help get through this cold snowy spring we've been having.

This is one of my favorite corners of my house.

Lovely brown transferware has so many aspects of the garden in it.

My mom gave me this old birdcage years ago.  One of my favorite things to decorate with.

I hope you've had a wonderful Easter.  I can't stop eating my daughters Jelly Belly's.  There are so many flavors that you want to keep on trying "just one more".  That old Easter Bunny is trying to make Lydia's mom grow plump!  Eight more weeks until bathing suit season made me hide the beans today so I won't be tempted.  As you can see I'm still thinking about them though....

Hope your all happy.  Wishing you a lovely, lovely day!!

Jenn :)
