Rhythms of a Mompreneur – and I miss you.

Hello my beloved family and friends, I miss you. I miss writing with you in mind, imagining you listening. Most of you know (the three of you left still checking this blog) that I’ve been pretty absorbed in my business for the last year. At first it felt good to be so focused, to be […]

Two for Tea and Tea for Two…

Our friend Cynthia has a tea party every year (I’ve probably mentioned it before) with “hats and gloves optional”. I love wearing a hat and gloves each year. This year, Norma was here – and she provided beautiful hats for the party! So, here we are in our hats, ready to head off to the […]

Happy Halloween!

  Wingless fairies in beautiful gowns made with love and labor by Grammy, from lace curtains out of the family cabin in Canada. Shiny handmade vests and matching shoe covers, too (and the sewing maching broke early in the game so there is much handsewing in these pretty fancies.) The wings were probably the most […]
