With Gussy, her, work, her blog, and yes (sorry Gus) even her husband! Miss Maggie, oops, I mean Gussy, is completely self taught. Amazing. Her bags are unique and one of a kind. I love the ruffles!! Go here to her Etsy shop to see what I mean.

I know you've all been waiting with baited breath and trust me, I appreciate it. I'm running a little late with this, due to softball running late, lemon bars that HAD to be made and well, life ;)

You, well, the winner, will get to choose from one of these fabrics and then choose either a skirt for a little girl (up to a size 10/12), a head scarf, or a skirt and a headscarf sized for an 18" doll.

~Why yes, I am a gardener AND a biker~

Motorcycle madness!!
Originally uploaded by Ketelcopia I'm not sure how many of you actually read blogger profiles. If you have read mine, (or are related to me), you probably already know this: I ride a motorcycle. Yep, sure do. And I love it!!! Seriously. One of these days I'll take a pic of my bike and post it. First I have to wash it and well, polish the chrome ;) Just wanted to put that out there!

I am also a gardener. I thought I would share with you a little about my garden. Here is a list of what I planted: lettuce (several varieties), carrots, radishes, squash, onions, potatoes, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, tomatoes, beans, peppers, lavender, cucumbers, watermelon, sweet corn and pumpkins.

And here is a list of what the rabbits haven't eaten: tomatoes, peppers, lavender, radishes, watermelon, beans, potatoes, onions, some of the strawberries, raspberries and one small salad worth of lettuce. Ugh!! The rabbits are little fiends this year. They chewed throug…

Hi all! Just popping in quick to say hi and tell you about this awesome shop! They are having a giveaway for one of their sweet mini watercolors. I'm tellin' ya, total awesomeness!!! So, go here if you want a chance to win!! Where Eagles Dare is just too cool. Seriously! Talk about talent...

Truly cool peeps!

This blogging world never ceases to amaze me. There are sooo many talented, generous, kind people out there. Without blogging, I would never have gotten the chance to "meet" them. Throughout the coming months, I'd like to introduce you to some of my favorite people and places out there in cyberspace.

The first people I have the pleasure of introducing you to are the gals at Boojiboo. It's a team made up of a mother and her two daughters. I can think of nothing better than homemade goods coming from a family effort! They carry beautiful aprons:

Gorgeous drink coasters:

And the cutest kitchen towels ever:

Recently I had the opportunity to enter a giveaway on their blog. Boojiboo was looking for input about their blog, shop, etc. I of course, never one to shy from a challenge, entered. I was not the winner of the fabulous clutch from their other shop, Boojibootique. However, generous people that they are, they did offer everyone who entered (and didn't win) a free mi…

We're baaack!! to life after the lake :)

Mike and the girls and I took a little camping trip this week. We left Wednesday morning in the rain, :( hoping it would let up by the time we got to the lake. Not so much. We made the best of it and had still had fun! (btw, if you aren't into pictures of my family, and other things I love, now is the time to stop reading ;)

I neglected to get any pictures of the joy of setting up camp in the rain, but trust me when I say it was ALL that you imagine! By the time we had our tent up and air mattresses blown up (yep that's right I don't sleep on the ground), the rain had slowed to a light shower. We decided to explore the town around our campground a little. I love to just hop in the car and go. Sometimes we get lost for a bit, but we always end up back where we need to be. It kinda freaks the kiddos out when I do this, but that is part of the fun!! Here is the rest of the trip in pictures! Enjoy!!
