Here's looking at you...


Rosy cheeks and half smiles.  Painted curls and long eyelashes.  Pixie faces and sweet surprises.  These are the little hand picked treasures that watch me as I sew.  Cherub in nature.  Innocent  and  forever young and quiet...


Nothing makes me happier that than having my whole family back under one roof.  Laundry is littering the kitchen.  Dirt is caked up against every surface of their camp gear.  It is utter heaven to hear the voices that have been so missed for the last ten days.    
A house full of happy smiles...

Sounds like you are in heaven right now having your boys back home. The girls (and Chris) are sleeping outside in the treehouse this evening. With the low humidity, they are game to try it out. I have an early morning at work and am content to have the entire house to myself.

HUGS!!

Sounds like it's time for a group hug! Glad to know everyone is back safe & sound. :-)

I would always unpack and shake out all my sons clothes, shoes and camping gear outside. Because he never failed to bring home a spider in his bag.
I bet it feels great to have everyone home under the same roof!

Sounds wonderful to me.

Oh, I can just see the pile of gear and dirty clothes - and all the laughing and story telling. Children bring such joy to a home. Love your pretty pixie girls!

I love all the sweet little faces on your figurines. It's exactly the reason I try to collect them. Thank you so much, again, for all the sweet goodies you sent. You are definitely a special lady.

Love ya'
