Quilt Asylum Winner!

My "friend since the 1st grade" Sheri is here with her two daughters visiting me this week!  Not much sewing is getting done but I did want to pop in to announce the winner of the fabric giveaway =  my fabric from the quilt asylum..  I asked Sheri to pick a number between 1-180 and she said "40" - so Robin at Chocolate Chippers, I just sent you an e-mail.  Congratulations! 

We visited a local antique shop and I wanted to share some very fun decorating ideas!

I just loved these displays over the windows.  Now who needs curtains?  My home was built in 1901 and I could totally see having this in my kitchen window. 

It's a lovely shop called Misty Meadow.  Here are some more clicks:

Mrs. Beasley!  But where are her glasses?

Sheri suggested framing pages of this large paper book.  Yes, love it! 

Back at home Duke is being lavished with attention and he loves it.  Here he is getting a hip rub.  See the curl of his back?  He's saying, "Oh yeah! Feels great girls!"

No trip to Gig Harbor is complete without a day in Seattle! Here's the Pike's Place Market.  While we were walking around it snowed, rained, hailed, and the sun was out!

Group shot!  Jack's duct tape
business now includes glasses! 

and while we play in the PNW, my husband is visiting Rob Dyrdek's Fantasy Factory in Southern California.  This skateboarding family is pretty darn excited about that!



  1. Congrats to the fabric winner.... looks like you had a blast taking in the sights and really... the fantasy factory? We watch it on tv... must be unreal to see it in person!!

  2. I had a Mrs. Beasley doll as a kid! It's the only doll I remember ever having. Thanks for the great memory!

  6. I love the window treatments! So cute! How fun that you live in such an old home...I would love to have an old home. And I had forgotten all about Mrs. Beasley - but actually now she looks a bit creepy! LOL! Looks like you had fun :)
