it's me...


Well that didn't last long...

It seems this little space is not easily forgotten or replaced and actually a form of therapy in my otherwise crazy world.  A place where I can share thoughts and ideas that are not immediately met with skepticism or criticism due to their very unlikely, impractical, pie in the sky ways (at least not to my face anyways).

We dreamers need an audience that isn't so big on realism and actual finishes, one that will nod in
agreement because in that pie in the sky world they would like order, simplicity, beauty and peace in their space, too.

I say let the dreamers unite because maybe one day the linen closet will stay organized, the kitchen counters will be dish free, the laundry space will not collect lost socks and dust bunnies at an impossibly alarming rate and those last ten pounds will magically disappear even if I share recipes made with a pound of butter or a cup of sugar.

I'm not sure what I'll post or how often but I do know when I sit down with my planner writing out my goals and dreams, add a pin to my pinterest boards or try a new outfit, I need someone to share them with...I need you.

Happy New Year (and no I told you so's are necessary, lol).

xo, Patty


  1. Woo hoo! So glad you changed your mind. :)

  2. Patty,
    Welcome back!!!
    Dreams really do come true!!!
    May all your hopes for 2016 come to be!!!

  3. Hi Patty,
    You wrote a lovely piece. It touches my heart directly..
    Happy new year.. May all your wishes come true this year..

  4. Hi Patty,

    Like the others, I am so glad you decided to write a post (and future ones!).


  5. Yay! I'm so glad you're back! Boy, those cookies look good ;)

  6. I am so glad you decided to post. I love all your thoughts and pictures. I like not feeling like I have to, but if I want to do something:) That is what Bloglovin and things like that are for!

  7. So glad you're back.. whenever you want to be.. no pressure, no "have tos"... just "whenever". Your posts always seem to inspire me in some little way or reach out to me when I need it. I've thought also of discontinuing my blog, but now and then I just need to share something with "someone" and my blog gives me that wonderful outlet. Lately I haven't posted much.. just too busy with moving and life, but I know it's there for me when I need it! I'll be glad for each and every post you decide to do. and BTW... where did you get those cute little scrolly things that hold up your pretty white shelves? I need some for my craft room!

  8. New year brings exciting new things and we have something VERY exciting to share with you!

  9. So glad you are back. I need you too. Your blog has always been inspiring to me. Not only your pretty pictures of your home and garden, your fashion posts, and your recipes with a pound of butter and a cup of sugar, but your faith always shines through.

  10. Looks like all commentors before me said it all but i have to say, Welcome back. We all missed you obviously. come back more often if you can or when you can. Since I had surgery on 12/7 haven't been as faithful about even reading blog posts but am slowly getting back into swing of things. Just can't stay away from crazy happy inspiring blog world. Happy New Year

  11. Hello you! Glad you are back!!! Post when you can. Love your beautiful pics and your home!

  12. Patty, I'm glad you're back, but hopefully you'll still post on IG because I'm really enjoying you there too :)

    I have the same problem with my little blogging corner! I love it, leave it, then decide I can't live without it :)

    You have a lot to share, so it's good to have a community that appreciates your thoughts and words.

  13. Patty, I haven't got a blog but am so pleased you are back because I missed reading yours. I'm fairly new to crafting and your posts are inspirational. Looking forward to reading more.

  14. Patty, It was so good to see your return. I look forward to your forward post. Hugs!

  15. There you are! Good to see you back, welcome back! :) Kit

  16. Yay! so glad to see this! I felt like I was just getting to know you, then poof! gone.
    well, now we can get better acquainted!

  17. Hi! Happy to have you back :)

    Have a sweet day.

  18. Glad you changed your mind, I've missed you! Happy New Year!!
