creating with spirit & enthusiasm…often with great results

I’m going to Rathdrum…


Today I set up for tomorrow’s show: The Vintage Barn Sale in Rathdrum, ID.  This is my favorite show.  It’s beautiful, country setting is so picturesque and calming.

Ok…I know ~ everything is starting to look the same.

western apronI try to avoid repetition, but I just can’t seem to help myself.


If you think you’re tired of looking @ aprons, guess what? I’m probably even more tired of making them.

Really though, I have officially run out of shirts that I can make these western aprons with.

Any cowboys or cowgirls out there have any extra shirts they don’t want????


To mix it up a little I took these pictures in the garden…which is growing nicely.

what cowgirl could resist her cowboy in lavender snaps...



home-made goodness from:  America ~ Washington State ~ Summit Valley ~ Stevens County ~ on Huckleberry Mountain…

Made in America = hand-crafted goodness that takes time…a lot of time.

But those who appreciate the idea of ‘American-made’ and have chosen to support it, also appreciate the time that goes into it and know that the cost is often higher.

Support: made in U.S.A.
