As happy as can be!

When I can't seem to find her anywhere...I stop and look in my laundry cart!

When she was a wee thing, about a month ago, I would sew at the kitchen table.

She always wanted to be near so I would tuck her away behind me in my laudry cart.

She would settle in as happy as could be.

Miss Brooks is settling in quite nicely, although she torments her brother and sisters quite regularly.

Kari, this is a post for you and your mom and also the sweet girls at the shop!

And anyone else who might be interested!

Hope your week-end has been as relaxing as Miss Brooks.

A July Wedding!

Let me start off by saying, "July has been one busy month!"

This past week was filled with a wedding and a full week of camping.

As you may remember from a previous post my niece was getting married, July 16.

My sister asked if I would decorate for the reception and of course I wanted to.

(my sister and her two sons.)

Being 5 hours away, I can't help like I'd like to, so being a part of the wedding in this way was great!

I should say at this point I have a very talented sister-in-law who was so willing to jump in and help.

The area for the reception ran along the "Little Applegate River" it was quite beautiful.

Everyone helped...we had the guys opening up tissue flowers as we placed them around the chairs.

My niece's wedding had a country flair so I made aprons for all the ladies that helped with the food at the reception.

The wedding was lovely and the bride was beautiful!

A big "Thank you" to Kathy for helping me with the reception.

And a "Thank you" to my brother-in-law for taking all the photos.

Month of July Window

I wanted to show you a few pictures of the display window at Monticello.

I have it for the month of July so Friday I was busy getting it set up.

Due to the fact that the space has a large window in the front it's always difficult to take a full shot of the space.

The reflection of the cars, street etc... seems to be the picture the camera wants to take.

So I'll show you little areas of it.

I forgot my camera so my #1 gave me his phone for theses pictures.

So if you're in the neighborhood be sure to stop by!

Monticello will be closed on July 4th but will open again, July 5th!

We will be headed back in today as our little hutch sold out of the front window.


Until next time have a wonderful 4th!
