New Coffee Cup & Jane

Sometimes all you need to brighten your day is a new coffee cup :)  Glorious fabrics by Jane Sassaman don't hurt either!  I simply love the drama of her designs - they take my breath away. And her insights never fail to inspire. Just what you need on a cold, Montana day!  love, faith.

Cookie Stupor

Time to emerge from our cookie stupor - see if you can match the following captions to the photo collage below: 

1. Forecast: 3" - 12" snow, 2 pots of coffee
2. I'm not coming in - don't even have icicles on my chin yet!
3. Soft & cuddly - need to buy more flannel!
4. OK, I'm in - where's the cookie??!!

Happy Day After Thanksgiving!

OK, I'm a little late with the Thanksgiving Greetings, but time got away from me a little bit this year - does that happen to you, too?!  And, I have to admit I really like the day after Thanksgiving a LOT!  So, "Happy Leftover Day" to you & yours! 

Now that you're relaxed with eyes glazed over from all the scrumptious leftovers eaten straight from the refrigerator, do you know it's about THIRTY DAYS until Christmas?  YIKES!  Are you awake now? Does this photo help?

Happy Father's Day!!

Hope you're spoiling your father rotten right now!  If I could be there, I'd be enjoying a BIG bite of Raisin Pie with a cup of coffee.  My dad makes great coffee 💞  And, I make great pie 💗 What's your favorite Father's Day celebration or memory?  love, faith.



Happy Mother's Day! Time to ....

It snowed here this morning - really BIG, HAPPY flakes. The air is brisk which makes the daffodils & tulips stand up even straighter!  And, it made me smile & remember my mom's favorite morning greeting:  
"Time to Rise & Shine!" 

Hope you are enjoying this wonderful Mother's Day!

Stonehenge Fabrics & Clay

You know, Mug Rugs don't always have to have a Mug on them :)  Found these great Salt & Pepper Shakers at the local thrift store & just had to add them to my collection.  They were made by "Clays In Calico" in Cardwell, Montana back in 1998.  Guess what?  They've been in business since the 1950's & are still in business!  Look pretty good with these "Cottonwood Leaves" - don't ya think?
