Little Things & Life Changes

P1010155g Can you believe that it is already mid-April? Time sure slips away, doesn’t it? Last month I had the chance to add some little spring touches to the stores I sell at. I sewed up some “scrappy mini buntings”….


P1010144f…some larger buntings made from vintage sheet fabric…P1010157f …and geared up the spaces for more summer cottage style touches..P1010150g …with some handmade pillows…P1010140g …that are made with vintage embroidery and vintage sheet fabrics. These are for my new “Fig and Lottie” line of items – which will include handmade bags, pillows and home adornments.P1010142h However, in the meantime, my time is spread pretty thin in dealing with some very important family matters. I will share more about it as I am ready, but in the meantime, our family is taking one day at a time and praying to our Father for his mercy and love. We are faithful that He will hear our prayers and we know that He loves us so very much.


Having said this, my time to blog is just not there. I do miss my daily pause to visit everyone and to see what y’all are up to. When there are some moments to squeeze in, I will try to get around to catch up with everyone. But in the meantime, I have to take care of first things first. Plain and simple. Just know that you, my blogging buddies, mean the world to me and I do think of you so very often. If you will, just say a little prayer for our family. **thank you.**

Oh my sweet friend! I do not know what's going on, but know that I will put you and your family in my prayers when I go to church services, I will ask prayer for you. Stay in Peace!
I'm miles and miles away from you, but my heart is near and is sensitive to their problems.
The Lord is merciful Father, and of course at the right time He will come to meet you. Pray, pray and not lose heart, trust in Him and everything will be solved.
I loved your post, all very beautiful and sweet.
Has one week and be blessed with God!

Blogging is hard when Life is throwing curveballs at us. The challenges coming my way aren't enormous, but enough that I don't have the heart to post much right now so I know exactly what you mean.

Well, for sure consider that prayer Offered. Sorry to hear you are having to deal with this right now in your family.

LOVE that embroderied cushion. LOVE LOVE it. I want to re-teach myself how to embrodery GOsh, I wonder if I can. Might give me something to work on in the long cold winter months.

I think your store looks like a fabulous place to wander around in.

Becky, I know what you mean! Family concerns have kept me away from blog land for too long and I feel that I have lost a part of my family.
You and your family will now be added to my prayer list.
Love the Fig and Lottie line. Keep up the great work. Wish I lived close enough to shop!
Many blessings to you and may God wrap His loving and protective arms around you and yours and hold you close, especially during this time in your lives.
