Good Afternoon Everyone!
OH MY GOSH is it HOT in
Managed to water flowers this AM, but
forget anything else that has to do with yard
work. I am already sick of VA humidity.
Everyone says ~ "you must get used to it".
Been here all my life and as I get older it
is harder to take. There are lots of things I
like about the olde days, but not having
air conditioning was brutal.
I remember sleeping at the foot of my bed
in front of an open window at night.
Even miserable as a kid. The only good
thing was that I could smell the honey
suckle growing in the field next to the house
and listen to the Whippoorwills sing. We
never hear them anymore. Whatever could
have happened to them? Do you hear them
in your "neck of the woods"?
"HOMESPUN WEE ONES"
I don't know if you remember, but a few years
ago, my daughter, Hollis, ventured into
designing and had some really lovely things.
Many of which are still selling and I am getting
ready to do a composite of one of her
series, "The Littles", as they are about to be
"out of print" as single leaflets.
Well, planning a wedding, getting married, working,
having a baby, meant any thoughts of designing
were gone. Fast forward and with the influence
of little Avery, baby designs are coming to mind.
We will be working on these together. We will
collaborate on ideas, concepts, and designs,
but her expertise with color and presentation
being the most important part.
She knows what young women are looking for.
Being the "grammie", I am thinking traditional
stuff, and there will be a little of that too.
"WHAT ARE BOYS?"
"WHAT ARE GIRLS?"
Please excuse the color. I did these on the scanner, so
it is way off, but I think you can get the idea. They are
also not mounted yet, just stuffed in the frame. I'm sure
you noticed ~ they are very crooked.
The frames are new too. Our "Shabby but Sweet" line.
Please let us know what you think. We are very
excited about this new line for "Wee Ones".
"JUST FOR FUN"
is the next line of designs.
Very clever stuff for all ages ~
