I'm so glad you have chosen to read my blog. I am new at this but hope to learn the art of blogging. I am looking forward to sharing with those of you who have similar interests. It's exciting to know that I will get to meet and visit with friends from all over the country. I will also introduce you to some of my creations and recipes from time to time. Thanks again from looking.
I am a member of the Old Farmhouse Gathering team and Handmade Louisiana team on etsy.
I am a retired home economics teacher, mother and grandmother. I live in Cajun country although I am not Cajun, but I have been here long enough to learn to cook some pretty tasty cajun dishes. I started making rag dolls when I was a little girl and have continued over the years to love to create many different items. I also love to visit antique shops and flea markets looking for different treasures.
Well, Christmas has come and gone once again, we've had the coldest winter in years in South Louisiana and I am getting around to making some new items for my local shops and adding some new things to my etsy shop. I added two of my cat shaped pillows for all you cat lovers. One is made from a great old quilt I found several years ago and the other is from a great piece of tapersty I've had for a while. I love to embellish the cats with vintage buttons, ribbons, silk flowers and any thing else I happen to have collected. My stash is getting larger and larger. I think I have more fun hunting for and collecting all my materials, buttons, lace, ribbon, charms and such as much as I do making the items. Anyway it's all about enjoying doing it, isn't that right?
