About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Ina, Walgreens and Coupon Queens

I spent the day with Ina and my sewing machine.
She cooked and I sewed and all was well in the world.

        My little cutie pie helped me find fabric odds and ends and we 
     happily created little place mats that made us smile.

       My sewing skills are very basic but I can now thread my 
     sewing machine and I feel like a genius!
      Girl Scouts had me scarred for life, or so I thought.  That 
      puppet making fiasco held me in fear for 
     about 30 years!  (See the birdie fabric, Fran!  Thank you so much!)

           I hope to make the yellow place mat tomorrow.  The fabrics
       are luscious!

I also made my hit on Walgreens. Anyone else a coupon queen?  I got these for free...

                         And this (scented nail polish!  Super fun!) for free...

And almost got this for free, but the crazy coupon queens got there before me.  I don't quite fall into the crazy category.  At least not yet.

               The weather felt almost like Fall today.  It was de-vine!

                            Ina got me thinking about this....

                       Butternut Squash Soup.  Oh my goodness....

Hi Lori
The placemats you made look so pretty. You did a great job with them. All the fabrics are gorgeous. What was the puppet making fiasco? Please tell :) Mmmmmmm that soup looks so good. You are getting some great bargains with your coupons.

Okay, so now I'm starving with that last picture!

Nice job on the placemats! Love how colorful they are. Makes one smile :)

Okay, does the scented polish smell good? Does it mask the awful nailpolish smell? Hmmm.....

Have a fabulous night!
