Where bloggers create

Where bloggers create......

I can spend soooo much time looking at
all the amazing spaces.
....and dreaming....
maybe the organizer fairy will visit me!
Oh how I love to visit all the beautiful bloggers, beautiful spaces.  Every year I think I might be ready to share my "sewing room".  There are some days it is so cute and neat and my kind of organized.  Ahhhhh but some days it looks just like this:
my desk

 This is what Amelia-jean  does to the bed.  Everyday she rearranges the pillows.
My beautiful chandelier
Lots of ideas
My Featherweight.  Can't live without her.
Micky-he greats you when you enter "Mistletoe Cottage" or as we call it home!

White feather tree with some fav bears.

a little Christmas House

Some of my miniature Santas

2.5" teddy bear of white vintage nylon

Attempting to be neat

needful things

4" Pink & Black vintage fabric

Where have I been?????

OMG!  Where does the time go???? I have been blog hopping and loving all these amazing blogs and totally neglecting mine. 
I have been working on teddy bears and fairy gardens and playing in my tiny backyard.  My sun flowers are growing like crazy.  From seeds, I grew Giant Sun Flowers, the first one is over 9' tall and she's almost ready to have her seeds harvested.  I'm so excited, did you know that one sun flower has 1,000-2,000 seeds?  I did not know that, but I'm learning so much about them.   I'll be drying the seeds for 2 weeks after the black lines appear, they are still all white now.  Then, replant the seeds in the beautiful Florida Sun.  My other plants are doing so well and my little yard is full of butterflies.  No luck so far with hummingbirds.....but I'm not giving up yet.  I know they will come, some day. 
I'll share pics of my darling "Sunny"
Oh so much I want to share, but I have to get to bed now.  I'm coming back soon, not gonna be a month again.

Hey There...

It has been so long since I've had a moment to write.  Time goes so fast, it gets away from me.  I had a great time this weekend, went to IDEX in Orlando and it was awesome.  I got to spend time with friends I hadn't seen in so long, we went to Silk Green house and saw a "fairy garden demo". I have already completed one and have sooooo many ideas in my over stuffed head.
Just sitting and counting my blessings.  (I was having a pitty party about loosing things, since that has been the theme for me this year.)  But more important...... the people in my life. I have a wonderful family and lots of friends and when you loose one of them that really is sad.  Yesterday my aunt Essie passed away, she was a lovely person, she collected clocks and was so beautiful, she will be missed by so many.  Today I got news of another friends' illness and I can't wait to see her.  I know how blessed I am, because I have wonderful people in my life, and I am thankful for that. Just feeling a bit sad.
I am so blessed to have Santa John to keep me going.   And my family.

Keep Calm
