Winter Swap with Danice

 Danice of Homespun Hannah's Blog sent me some wonderful gifts for the winter swap. Theme was Humble Hearts.. The red and white heart is actually quilted pieces.Just beautiful. Hand stitched ditty bag. Crow doll and pinkeep...
Little sewing box and journal which I needed because I have alot of new things starting.Also some vintage clothespin that I have yet to find,Hubby's cat No No has stole and hid them somewhere. Really that cat drives me crazy but Hubby loves him so he stays. To many stories to tell how bad he is...smile...Thank You Danice for swapping!

Happy Sunday!

Happy Sunday! Old stone church on the way to Grandma's house..I used to go to Sunday school her as a child. Getting ready for a walk in the park with the dogs. 40's today than another Arctic blast.. Indoor flea market went well.I had one table of Antiques then the rest was just a mix of stuff. Glad I took both because it drew in everyone. Had one crazy lady wait till I walked away to look at stuff try to get our address from my hubby. She told him I said she cold come go through the house and buy stuff. She even left her phone#. He said I can't believe you are letting people in your house.I of course never said it. I talked to her while she decided on a antique biscuit box which she talked me down on then had to borrow money to buy. Were she got the idea of coming in my house I have no clue. Other than that it was busy and I found a few small treasures. Have a great week friends!~Amy

Not much going on it's winter.. Always time for me to take a short rest. I did decide to do a small indoor flea market this weekend. I wasn't thinking a month ago about how cold it would be. It's supposed to be 20's and snow showers so I don't think many will venture out.If it were me I'd stay in my warm house...smile... I did manage to get a small load packed and ready to go/I'm mostly taking just general stuff to clean out and one table of antiques and primitives that I don't much care about and willing to give good deals...I am excited to see one vendor that will be there so I can buy, I guess it's good I can recoup some of what I spend. Made homemade granola for the first time. I'm watching my sugar and found a recipe that was all natural.I always thought it would be hard but it was easy peasy. It is sooo good. It's just oats, honey,peanut butter, pure vanilla extract, a dash of sea salt and I added some pecans.Now when I'm craving something to grab I don't have to feel quilty or worry what's in it....Hope everyone is enjoying some winters rest.I've been enjoying some crafting, reading and lots of warm cuppa's.
