back to work again...


I hope everyone had a nice Memorial Day weekend.  We had a nice drive out to my moms and enjoyed a BBQ with family.  My six year old grandson commented on the lack of traffic since it was Material Day...I had to chuckle at the words of this fabricaholics grandchild.  I explained that it was Memorial Day not Material Day and that we were celebrating the sacrifices that our service men and women make so that we can live the wonderful lives we live.  I think he got it but hey, I wouldn't mind celebrating a Material Day next weekend.

After a nice long weekend of fun outside it seems only right that I spend the day inside putting things back in order around here, so I've declared today a cleaning day.  I am ashamed to admit that I probably should have declared a day last week as a cleaning day but have been holed up in my studio obsessed with making stuff and have totally neglected my chores. I haven't had a chance to take pictures of what I'm working on with anything other than my phone camera but once the house is clean I will, so that I can share it with you here.

It is so easy to post on instagram and facebook that I have been neglectful of this little blog space but I do miss it and am going to get back into the habit of sharing here more regularly.

Happy Tuesday!  Back to work again.

xo, Patty


  1. Work...that four letter word. Glad you had a wonderful weekend. I loved mine also. xoxo,Susie

  2. I need a cleaning day too Patty, it is just too easy to get caught up in work and creating isn't it? I think a "Material Day" sounds like a great idea! Out of the mouth of babes....:>)

  3. That is what I am doing tomorrow- cleaning- I have been working outside like a mad woman the last couple of days. It is nice to see a post from you here- xo Diana

  4. Wow, such a lush and colorful garden. I can imagine you spending a lot of time out there just puttering away with the deadheading and weeding. It does look wonderful.

  5. Sounds like you had a lovely weekend.

    Beautiful summer flowers, and I'm looking forward to seeing what you've been up to.

    Happy wishes...


  6. Your flower photos are beautiful! I am loving seeing all your creative pictures on Instagram.
