Here, There, and Everywhere!

It has been a blessed and busy few weeks!
I have missed visiting with everyone as I have been travelling, visiting family, and sewing like a mad woman!
When I return from Virginia (I leave tomorrow) I will be posting my first blogland giveaway:).
Until then here is some of what has been going on the past few weeks:

Sewing class in Spartanburg for a mid 19th century summer mantle,
1920's party Saturday night,
and more sewing Sunday.
Home for a few days while Lizzy helps me with my summer mantle project.

Then off to Atlanta to visit with family,
(Lizzy and grandma enjoying breakfast:)
(Lizzy and mom)
and book signings at Acworth Bookstore in Acworth,GA,
Broad Street Antiques Mall in Chamblee, GA
and Antiques in Old Town in Lilburn, GA.
Mr. Whiskers and me:).

Back home where I finished my summer mantle,
and cleaned and decorated for a visit from family
(both furry and human).
It's not summer without garden tomatoes!

Meanwhile hubby and his friend replaced the rotted front porch.

Family arrives for a fun visit.
Winston resting on his mommy's lap,
while Sasha smiles after pulling all of the toys from the basket.
Calvin is doing his imitation of a couch puppy.
Sasha smiling while she waits for Lizzy to abandon the toy that she now wants.
And where is Kramer you ask?
Hiding in another room, of course!
(Kasey is off somewhere sleeping).
With all of the busyness of life I think our neighbors' cat has the right idea...
an afternoon nap on a hot summer day:).

Blessings for a restful and fun summer to all of my blogland friends!
Love ya,
