Vintage Monday...Let it Snow!...

Good morning!..... while I have my hot cocoa... I thought I would share with you what I've been up to the last week....

...and this is it!....the fluffy white stuff....and LOTS of it!! At our little cottage, when it snows....the kids get on thier snowgear and head outside along with all of the other kids in the neighborhood...
you can read more about that in THIS POST!


...and Mr. Honey puts the snowplow onto his 1 ton FORD truck... and hits the road....we've had so much snow...I havn't seen him in quite a while!


....and I won't see him until all the roads are clear....like this!
This is the view in front of my cottage.


I'm thinking it's the last of my David Austin roses for the winter....so sad....sleep well my pretties...I'll see you in the springtime!


This is my upstairs deck off the kitchen as I'm looking at it right now....


...and my patio below.


My grandma Crane's vintage garden rocker that she gave me....and that my grandpa gave her.
He gave it to her as a wedding gift so that she would have a comfortable place to sit while she accompanied him on those long trips to Idaho with the sheep herd....


I have been unpacking box after box of my Christmas decorations...a perfect project for a snow day....(or should I say snow week...lol)


Hello Mr. Snowman!...I've missed you!.....I have a feeling you'll feel right at home here.


Of course you know that I collect vintage ornaments....



Here is just a sneak peek into the boxes...

When I have it all up....I'll show you!

Block exchange!...

Here are the blocks that we exchanged yesterday at Clothesline Club...they are all 8 inch finished blocks...























This last one of course is the one that I made...we still have a few more to exchange.
I think that they are all really fun blocks and will make an adorable "friendship sampler"
quilt....
I'll have to decide how I will set them...probably sometime after the holidays:)
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving everyone!

Hangin with my girlers...

I love to get together with my friends and have a nice long sew day....

On this day we are at my friend Suzann's house...her turn to host what we call our "Girlers Group"...

All of us "girlers" brought our own projects to work on while we visited and had a nice lunch.


This is Suzann ironing in her cute kitchen...


And Jackie...working on some applique...


And my friend Judi....smiling for the camera...in between projects:)

And Rae Ann tracing her pattern for applique...



This is what I worked on...my spool blocks for our Clothesline Club exchange that we will be doing today.
We were supossed to exchange our blocks last month but we decided that we needed an extra month to complete all 30 of them!


I took my applique to Suzann's house in a cute little vintage sewing box that I found this summer while Mr. Honey and I were browsing (aka me loading up my basket) in an Antiques Mall when we were on our anniversary trip.

I think this sewing basket is Cute with a capital "C"!


The graphics on the top of the basket are so vintagey sweet...and the basket is just the right size for applique...love it!
I promise to take pictures of all 30 blocks that I get in exchange for my spool blocks and I will show them to you tommorrow!
Have a great day everyone...my wish for you is a good long "sew day" with your girlers!
