Nesting News

Hi girls I am still here,
so sorry for the absence but it has been a hectic month.
Between the construction of the new sun room, out of town guests, both people
and the four legged kind and a trip to the animal emergency (more on my next post, and everyone is okay) this place has been hoppin.

This week we are getting ready for a huge long over due garage sale,
I will be so glad when this is over.
Garage sales are a lot of work, especially when you have this much stuff.
But in my defense a lot of this stuff is leftover from the Ohio house,
and that was a big old house.

We are still working on the cottage trying to merge pieces from the Ohio house.
Deciding what stays and what goes, it isn't easy.

I have made some progress in the upstairs studio thanks to my sweet and talented friend Cindy.
Look at these super cute pillows she made
and the sweet additions she created for the curtains and window seat skirt.
I just love it!

When I had my interior design company Cindy was my seamstress and my constant support.
I could have never accomplished my design endeavors with out her wit, wisdom and patience.
Thank you Cindy you are a truly wonderful friend.

When she and her hubby George visited last month she and I started making plans to start working together again on some one of a kind pillows and pet beds to sell on Etsy.
If we pursue this idea you girls will be the first to know:)

And speaking of new ideas here is my latest paper mache creation.

Meet Blue the turtle.

Sorry the pix are so crumby.
I would take more but he already sold:)!

Well, I have lots more to share but there is garage sale work to be done.
So bye for now and thanks for stopping over.

Wishes and kisses,

Mary looks like we have both been busy making our home homey Love the little window seat. I am going to redo my aunts studio space and this is just a perfect look for her window. Hope the critters are OK
