rough times…

Life has thrown us another curve, and I’ve had to put my Etsy shops in vacation mode for a while. My 85 year old mother-in-law fell last Friday (January 23) and she broke her hip. She had surgery on Sunday and, unfortunately, it led to several complications to her already bad health. I’m spending my days with my husband Lawrence at the hospital.

Any positive vibes you can send would be greatly appreciated.

new hand stitched heart ornaments!

I’ve been busy stitching up some new heart ornaments for both my Etsy shop and our website. 100% handmade, I used recycled fabrics and beautiful sheer ribbons, and embellishments like felt, mini crocheted flowers (made by my friend Annette), buttons, stamps, charms, vintage lace, and beads…

Hope you like them! Each is one-of-a-kind, and only $12 each, perfect for your special Valentine, bff, siblings, your child’s teacher – anyone!

’til next time…
