If there ever was a pumpkin heaven..... I'd want to go there!
Just can't get enough PUMPKINS.
I'm trying to savor each season but
Life is still clicking along lickity-split here.
I spent many days of summer with my little pumpkin peeps.
They bring JOY to my days.
so THANKFUL to be present in their lives weekly.
We had many chats... her in the tree me in my lawn chair...
talking about favorite things and playing Would You Rather...
This little bug in a rug is now 8 mos. and crawling.
Outside is our favorite place to be.
We have created memories ... pretended we were pioneer women.
making do with what we have.
We didn't plan to do this we just did it !
Now fire baked and ready to eat !
Finding out an oven is a blessing : )
It would have been so much easier to bake it.
Life at home .... is where I want to be.
Here and there I've cozied up the nest taking trash .....
..... turning it into TREASURE !
I've wished I had a barn....
I've thought about the past
Lived in the present....
Not knowing really where to start,
I decided one day to just take the first step
to make this flea market treasure into something.....
this has been patiently waiting for sometime in my sewing room.
Years upon Years actually.
Each day I'm learning that in life...
one step leads to the next, be patient, take it step by step.
Hurrying only leads to worrying. It all works out in the end.
Everything is falling into place.
Once I got the front figured out
the back of a thrifted shirt became the perfect back.
In one day it all came together beautifully
because it was the right time!!
I love Adding JOY to the world in little ways.
When it all comes together.... you can't believe how
Homemade makes me giddy with excitement !!
Life seems to go round and round but much stays the same.
If you want life to be different you have to do things differently.
I have been wanting
to make this little wall hanging for a long time.
I don't know why it took me so long ....
just could never find the time.
but last month I decided to do life a little differently.
I made time....
And it finally happened!!!
A little happy birthday present to me!
