...the weekend

Hope your weekend was good and that you were able to stay warm. We were chilly here in the Sunshine State, but it's back to sunny skies and warmer temps for the week.

I have not pulled a loop on my Maggie rug lately. I am putting all my energy into getting organized and cleaning out.  I did get some Mugwump Woolies cards made and ready to send to my friend's shop. 

Mr. MW ran a beach race on Sunday. 

When you enter a race you always get a tee-shirt. This is the shirt he brought owl...can you believe it? Annie was tickled to add it to her wardrobe.

I'm off to tackle another closet. Have a great week and stay warm.

Enjoy the day,

Our amaryllis is blooming...the grand finale of the season. The paper whites are long gone, but this beauty is just beginning it's run...there are two more buds ready to open. It's enjoying the sunlight coming through the front door sidelights. We are enjoying it's show...a gift from Mother Nature.

Annie's Owl Tree is enjoying a new addition. This sweet fluffy owl is a gift to Annie from Melinda  of Merry Wind Farm. Isn't he cuddly? Thank you, Melinda. He's right at home and most welcome. 

Gifts from friends and nature...a lovely start for the new year.

Enjoy the day,

January Kitchen Window

Ahhh...January...the month to reduce clutter...and waistlines. As is my custom for January, my Kitchen Window is simple...lean...and calming. After all the color of the holidays, neutral is necessary!

Just the usuals...and a little green ivy in my favorite basket...a couple pieces of stone fruit.

A Kolene Speicher print with a fierce feline hangs on the window.

I hung my smaller baskets on the old tool rack over the sink. 

A simple window for the beginning of a new year...and always, always a little something growing.


A wee bit of progress on Thistle Down Moon. I'm playing with the thistle. Lilac is a real stretch for me. I like the more muted, but don't think I have enough. Time will tell.

Enjoy the day,

P.S. I had an inquiry about the objects hanging from my mantle...they are iron "keyhole" spatulas from the 1800's...used to remove things from the oven.
