Lavender Hill Cottage meets Timeless Tassels

I finally got to meet Traci of Timeless Tassels at the Lenoir City Craft Show yesterday here in TN.  She is one of the sweetest, cutest, friendliest ladies I've ever met.  Her booth was just darling, not to mention her cute tassels!  Even though I make some tassels too, I just had to have one of hers.  I hope our paths will meet again one day!

High School Reunions

How many of you go back to your high school reunions?  I went to one of mine last weekend in Coral Gables, FL.  Had a wonderful time and reconnected to former classmates.  That's me on the left in the white jacket.  Which number was it?...................hum  A big one!  LOL

Stone House Manor

This is the 100 year old home where I'm selling some of my handmade items.  I recently moved downstairs to get more exposure.  One of these days I'll get some items listed on Etsy again.  Do my cake slice pincushions look good enough to eat?

Happy Crafting,

Cake Pops

I made my first batch of Cake Pops to take to my daughter's house for Easter.  I used the Baby Cakes Cake Pop Maker which I've had since last year.  Think they were a hit! I used the recipe that came with the instructions.  Much better than mixing cake crumbs and frosting!

Quilt,Cupcake,Latte & Bear Embroidery Pics

I'm enjoying making these little stitched pictures and have all kinds of ideas rolling around in my head -   more ideas than time.  I sold the quilt and cupcake ones already.  My friend loves lattes and wanted a little pillow for her kitchen.

Today's project was working on three cake slice pincushions.  One finished and two to go.  Haven't made one in probably 4 years so takes time to figure out the pattern. Will post pictures of those when finished.

Pom Pom Bunnies and Chicks

I've been away for some time making things for Stone House Manor, doing special orders and hosting a craft day at my house this past Thursday.  After all, March is National Craft Month!

I had the ladies make pom pom bunnies and chicks since Easter is right around the corner.  They were all pleased with their little cuties.  Of course my cat Lucy had to be right in the middle of everything.  She had as much fun as we did!

Happy Crafting,

Happy Valentnie's Day

I've been very busy making new things to put in Stone House Manor.  It's an old house where I rented a space.  It just opened this past Saturday.  I'll show you pictures one day soon.  

These lavender heart sachets are just a few of my new creations.  Wish I could take good pictures!

Happy Sweetheart's Day.

Spring Embroidery Pictures

I'm ready for spring to arrive.  But in the meantime, decided to design a couple of small embroidery pictures.  I thought I'd try linen this time, but will go back to using osnaburg.  Linen is a looser weave and it was hard to keep my stitches neat.

This is a nice small project to do while watching TV.

Happy stitching,

Vintage Garden Tea Room

Thursday I went to a new tea room here in Maryville.  It was decorated in a daring shabby chic style.  I hope she is successful as we need a place for the ladies to brunch 'n lunch.  Her color scheme was mainly pink and aqua and I just happened to wear one of my favorite colors that day - aqua.  This used to be an old home which makes it even more charming.

Thought I'd share a few pics with you.

Loving tea rooms,
