HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY EVERYONE! Have a great day, enjoy the fireworks, but, most of all, be safe!
This morning is just kind of relaxing - for a change - and this afternoon we are going to have a picnic with my dad at the nursing home. We are so looking forward to spending some time outside with him and he will be able to see Lucy for the first time. Tonight our family is going to walk down to the Holly Beach (about 3 blocks) and watch the fireworks. It's kind of a family tradition that Chad and Kim always come home for, along with Ashley's family. Poor Ashley won't be able to go tonight, Lucy is just too darn little, but Abbey is really excited! Seems funny to get up on a Saturday morning and not open the shop! We have two old pie safes in our living room and I thought I would share the displays on the top of them. Can you tell I love old bobbins and bobbin lights?
I also love tin molds. These are reproductions, but I love them anyway! Stitcheries are another favorite.

We bought this antique piece from the people that sold us the house almost 20 years ago. It says it all!
I had such a great surprise at the shop yesterday! Terri (Chocolates For Breakfast, Stitching For Lunch) came to shop and brought Lucy the most darling little book and card! Thank you so much Terri - it was so very thoughtful!
We have a sale going on at the shop too. Included are: all patriotic - 35% off, all stitcheries - 30% off, dolls - 20% off, and lots of the garden goodies are marked down. If you get a chance come in and save!
Guess I'm going to go RELAX for a little bit and enjoy some time off!
Have a wonderful 4th.
Until next time...
