and another one bites the dust...


Is it just me or did the weekend just fly by?  I really believe the closer we get to the holidays the faster time goes.  We are running out of weekends...and another one bites the dust! (Now tell me you didn't just start singing that in your head.)

It was another hot one for us here in the Southern California but we are expecting a break in the heat this week and even a good amount of rain tomorrow so woo, hoo for us!

Thank you for the sweet comments about the things I make.  When I was changing the info tag line for my Etsy shop this morning the best description I could think of was that "I am a girl who likes to makes pretty things".

That's it, that's me in a nutshell.

Now on to the giveaway winner.  My grandson picked a number for us and he chose number 3.  That would be you Debbie Faust.  Congratulations!  I will be sending you an email for your address a little later today.

If you have a minute, I'd love for you to go over and visit my shop because Christmas will be here before you know it and there is probably someone on your list that appreciates and loves hand made. I have a couple of different size totes that would be cute stuffed with goodies or all alone.

And these little covered notepads would make cute stocking stuffers!

Thanks again and have a great Monday.

xo, Patty

  6. Hi Patty. Your handiwork is beautiful. I've visited your blog a number of times and have wanted to contact you, but couldn't find an email address. Your cottage is so charming.

My email address is I hope you'll write me. Warmest regards, Nancy @ A Joyful Cottage
