Happy New Year Friends!

Have a seat.... don't mind the pins, and sit for a spell with me.
I have a story to tell you.

Introducing the Gingham Store....

You had to know it was coming.... 
and after such a long wait for us behind the scenes, we have finally brought it together. 
I would like to introduce you to a fun new venture we have brewing,
As the Paper Ladies, Madame Samm and I have a shared love of everything gingham. If you haven't noticed, all of our Paper Ladies for this year have been dressed in gingham... and most of our projects have had a hint of gingham somewhere. It seems that we just can't get it off of our minds! We could think of nothing more fun than a whole store of Gingham... so that is just what we decided to do.

Time for Tea...with your Bes-TEA!

It is that time of year again that we prepare special dinners and give thanks for all the goodness life has to offer. This year I am so very thankful for my Bes-Tea. There isn't a day that goes by that she doesn't touch my heart with her special blend of sweetness. 
 Many of our lovely chats have been over a cup of tea. It is only fitting that a tea cozy be the project to showcase our collective talents. Samm did such a beautiful job embroidering this adorable tea cozy. I simply had to make one up in applique too!

It turned out so pretty - all thanks to Samm. It is the perfect companion to a cold morning with a hot tea pot and a phone call. Good thing I know a special person who is always at the other end of the telephone with a smile!

More Dresses and Dollies...

I have been doing a little sewing this week. This cutie was for a sweet chef I know. She was such a doll to me recently, just had to make her a small token of my appreciation. I made her a scrubby in the shape of a heart too... and a to top it off, she simply had to have a Dish Dress!

So Thankful November Paper Lady is here!

This month is all about giving thanks, so we thought there is nothing more fitting than writing Thank You notes! November Paper Lady breaks out the ink this month as she reminds us all to give thanks. Isn't it funny how we use that expression "Give Thanks?" 

We are heading into the holiday season where giving seems to lighten the mood, and touch the hearts of those closest to us. Giving thanks is no different.... and it is quite a gift indeed. 
The simple gesture of thank you sure goes a long way and can mean the world to those around us. Take a moment to notice what others have done for you and in return offer a small thank you. I am sure they will appreciate hearing it, and I know you will be glad you did it.
