Happy 2014

Good morning and Happy New Year!  Did you have a big evening?  As usual I hit the sack long before the ball dropped. Our neighborhood was full of fire crackers or crazy lunatics with guns, or possibly both,  so there was no really good sleeping till after midnight.  Lucky for us Peep doesn't care about neighborhood shenanigans anymore and she didn't bark her way through the evening. 


Today's coffee is brought to you courtesy of Nanette, who sent me this adorable vintage mug and an equally adorable Christmas tree coaster. That just couldn't be cuter, to me anyway. She totally gets me for sure. One last use of that cute coaster before it gets put away with the last of Christmas.

The year of not hoarding
I'm trying out some new things this year.  Like using stuff.  Yes, you heard me, this 'saving it for later' thing has got to end. I bought this iron last year LAST YEAR PEOPLE at CHA and have had it in the box it came shipped in since then.  Completely ridiculous.   I kept thinking that my old iron was still working, but honestly it leaks like a sieve. And then I was thinking well, I have a lot of fusing to do and I don't want to mess up the new ironing board cover or the iron with fusible gone wrong.  IT'S NUTS!  So today I'm clearing off the ironing board and putting on a nice new heavy duty cover and breaking out this new pretty iron.  I dare me to do it. I'm almost there, it's out of the box right?
Hope that 2014 is working out ok so far.  I'm looking forward to a fresh start! HAPPY NEW YEAR! xop

You think like I do! I have stuff all over that I haven't used. I'm saving my money this year to buy all of the Pam Kitty fabric in at least one yard increments! I'm broke right now so it's on my "creative visualization" list. Love everything you design! Thanks for the inspiration! Have a happy new year! Cheery wave from Bev

Happy New Year! The crazy lunatics with guns and firecrackers were mostly quiet this year, in comparison to year's past. A good sign, right? Less crazies for 2014!

Love your new/old mug.

You will have to let us know how you like your Oliso iron. I've had my eye on buying one, but they are on the pricy side and I'm curious to find out if they are worth the cost.
Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Iron Day! You can do it!

We stayed up late--the kiddos were out and we were waiting for them to come home. They arrived home, safe and sound. :)

I know what you mean. By all means use that cute new iron. You got me with that pretty yellow. I've never seen an iron like that. Oh and I love a spanking new ironing board cover.

I'm hoping you'll give us a review and some feedback on that new's been on my wishlist forever!

Now you've inspired me to go crawl into that pretty "new" nightgown that I've been "saving"! :-)
