Yay, my favorite time of year is just around the corner! As the hot summer days start to fade away, and I wake up to cool, crisp mornings... it reminds me that the holidays are almost here!! Halloween costumes to sew for my two adorable boys and slightly chubby chihuahua. A few birthdays to bake cakes for, a turkey to roast, and best of all......CHRISTMAS!!! Ornaments, homemade stockings, shopping for toys, toys, and more toys, sparkly lights, hot cocoa with yummy homemade marshmallows, wrapping presents. Oh the fun of the holidays. Oh yeah, did I fail to mention, smashed pumpkin on the floor, because your toddler thought it was a ball, cakes that won't rise because the kids are jumping around next to the oven, frosting handprints on the walls, from the cake that did finally make it out of the oven in semi-decent form! A Thanksgiving turkey the dog has licked, presents that have been rewrapped umpteen times, and what is that under the Christmas tree, dog vomit, and a banana the toddler put under there for later!
Homeschooling Mama of 3 rowdy little boys...so far... baby #4 on the way! Self proclaimed eccentric, free-spirited, hillbilly hippie chick! I like to sew it, grow it, make it, and bake it... doing my best to live a homemade, handmade life! Happiness is... giggling children, snuggly babies, cupcakes, polkadots, good old Golden books, ice cream cones, holidays, vintagey goodness, clothes lines and crisp aprons, merry go rounds, gnome houses, red sneakers and crinoline skirts, oh yes... and a nifty pair of rose colored glasses.
