Welcome to my little world! My name is Donna and I'm the mother of one very spoiled kitty named Clarice. I was a banker for over 20 years but now I'm a SAHM and loving every minute of it. I'm a super, huge Bon Jovi fan and an avid cross stitcher. I love decorating my home with flea market finds, primitive style items and vintage items. My hubby says if the last three generations threw it out as trash it'll end up in our house as a decoration.

Wow three posts in one week

so when has that ever happened before....ummmmmm NEVER!  But I wanted to show you guys what I have been stitching on because it's just so pretty.  This is the first time stitching Little House Needleworks patterns and now I ask myself why?  No seriously love, love, love their reproduction sampler line and I forsee a large cross stitch order in my future.  Sorry honey but 2013 was the stash diet so it's time to stash away in 2014!

So this is the finished model but I'm only about half way done but it's so pretty.  I can't wait to finish it up and get it framed.  It's even got martini glasses down in that bottom border but I swear I didn't notice that until I started stitching it.
And I also did the thrift circuit in TN last week and snagged this great little drawer/shelf.  I think I'll paint it and use it in the new kitchen to hold some of my cookbooks.  It was $2.99 so I just couldn't pass it up. It's probably 1960 to 1970 vintage but the knobs are cute and I can't pass up anything with drawers.
Happy Easter to everyone!

  4. Evening Donna, I love your Sampler, looks so beautiful, great job. Also great thrift store buy, Easter Blessings Francine.

  5. Thank you so much for dropping in at LAWN TEA!! You'd be SO welcome at any of our gatherings.

    And it seems as if you COULD use a quiet, somebody-else-cooked-it meal, with all the moving you've been doing. We've "M----" eleven times since we've been married, always nicer and always up, so to speak, but oh, my---I think I could have taken a job at Mayflower in my younger days.

    Always lovely to have a visit from you!



I'd love to hear your comments good or bad so chat away!
