Wild about Harry . . .

Thank you for stopping by . . .
Today's "Wild Hare" offering is not a hare at all but is appropriately named:
Harry & Berry
A very sweet and traditional olde style teddy of soft over dyed golden mohair.
Harry has wool felt paw pads, glass eyes and is stuffed heavy with steel shot
to be quite the cuddler!
He wears a red leather collar with bell and holds his prized velvet
strawberry pin keep with beaded seeds.
10" tall is the perfect size to tuck into a vignette or keep you company
in the stitching room.  Harry doesn't know how to sew, but
he will hold your pins and stare at you with that sweet little face!
Please email to purchase:

Have a happy day,

Wow . . .

May I just say WOW!

I am just home from my very first teaching experience and I am a VERY
contented and happy, glowing and grinning kind of exhausted!
What an amazing weekend we had.
The very first "Historic Arts in Historic Places" event was a wonderful success.
I have to say I had the BEST class of happy, quick witted and sweet students
a teacher could ever wish for. 
Plans are already in the works for the next "Historic Art in Historic Places" event!
So stay tuned . . .  
but in the mean time enjoy these photos of our day!
getting started . . .  stuffing amongst the clouds
teacher ~ student ~ hands
deep in thought
tiny stitches 
bunny tales . . .  tails?
So very close . . .  a moment to pause and reflect.
Simply ~  thank you

Our flag . . .

How proudly she waves . . .
I may be of a certain age . . .  but I remember being taught "flag etiquette".
We learned in school as well as possibly in Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts.
These signs of respect are timeless, and I'm know each country has the same
 for it's proud symbols.
As with many things in society, over time we can get a little lax.
Today is a perfect day for a little reminder!

Long may she wave . . .
