♥♥♥ My New BIKE ♥♥♥

We had such a great weekend in Chetek! It was great to spend time with Grandma as well as Grandpa Ken & Grandma Marie and the rest of the family, Mike and Rachel 4 dogs and 4 kids! whew! Believe it or not it was quite relaxing! Friday before we left Jake and I got a little time to ourselves(Thanks to Grandma for treating the kids to a movie) and I got a NEW BIKE! I love it a cute pink beach cruiser! I have been biking almost every night :) I also added a picture of some of my flowers~ I just love this bench (bought it at a rummage sale)! My garden is slowly coming together! I have lots going on ~ getting ready for the farmers market this weekend, Jada's dance recital and not too mention the craftacular in two weeks! My etsy shop will get updated sometime next week! Talk to you all soon! :)

Have a great weekend! Pictures of my sewing room....

I am off for the weekend! My mother n law is here to visit and we have lots of plans! ;) One which includes the purchase of a new tent for my upcoming shows! My other one was great and made it 3 years (summers) of vending~ but the time has come for a new and better one! I thought I would share some pics of my sewing room!(It is a bit messy) I have been working on it for quite some time. There are still things I would like to change, but for now it is such a cute room .... and very inspiring! Have a safe and happy Memorial day weekend! Enjoy!

Here come the CROWNS ....

I have seen several variations of crowns for kids and I was inspired to create my own after wanting a cute handmade gift for my nephew back in December. I think I finally have tweaked my design enough and made up a little pattern of these cute guys! I am thinking I will sell them only at shows( and the farmers market ), but you never know one may pop up here and there in my shop :) I have had sooo much fun creating them! I finally made Max up one for his birthday hmmhmm which was last month! He loves it~ it is brown with the dog printed front and a big Letter *M* for Max! I know Jada will be next~ I am sure a cheetah(thanks to her love of the cheetah girls) print with sparkly pink will be up for order and a small one for her american girl doll too ;) I hope you all like them! Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! ooohh and the elastic in the back makes them somewhat adjustable, I figure will fit a child 3-8 years of age! Yay!

It has been crazy as always and to add to the madness we got another dog! We found him thru ! We were amazed at how much he looks like our Buck a.k.a Mr. Pickles. Here he is ~ we think he is maybe Lab/chow mix after looking up several mixes on the web he looks the most like that! He is a little hyper at only 3 years old, but anything would seem active comparing to our 11 year old Buck! Welcome home Buster soon to be a.k.a Deisel 10~ Max wanted to name him that, it is a Thomas the Tank engine train! :) He is a sweet well trained guy~ but super fast and likes to play with toys(the kids think that is pretty cool!) We went and bought him some new ones for his new home! I don't know what Buck thinks, but I think they will soon be best friends! Here are some new pics! Buck and Buster! :)

♥♥♥ Garden GNOMES ♥♥♥

I am so excited! We were out and about looking for a new bike for me (for my birthday that is right around the corner) and I came across this sweet guy! Garden gnomes remind me of my Mom-mom and Pop-pop's home in New jersey~ They had quite the collection! All over indoors and out! My Mom-mom recently passed away and I wanted something to remind me of her~ and I think I found it! He even has a little basket of daisies! PERFECT! I also added some garden gnome ponytail holders to the shop as a custom listing(I sold the original set) I am getting ready to have a rummage sale this weekend! Woohoo! I may actually be able to park in my garage after it ;) LOL! I will update th shop on Wed. or Thurs. :)
