About Me

I have been married for 20 years to a great husband and we have 8 children ranging in age from 1 to 18 years. I am a homeschooling mom, which can be very challenging. I love sewing, knitting, reading, gardening and have recently started oil painting. I love to create. I really want to have a blog to show off some of the stuff I create, but I also want to share about my life and family. email me at ctrich8@bellsouth.net

Busy Day

Today was as busy as I thought it would be, and tomorrow and Saturday will be worse. I am trying to enjoy it though, because this is probably the best couple of days the girls will have all year. They love recital. They work hard all year, and this is the big day. I guess it is kind of like Prom for little girls. They get to dress up, put makeup on and show off LOL I will have pictures from the dress rehearsal tomorrow night. We aren't allowed to take pictures at the actual recital, so all of my pictures of them performing will be taken tomorrow.

Everyone please pray that me or the girls don't get sick. My oldest son has been throwing up all day : ( Ava has been fine though, she never got sick again, so I don't even know if they are the same thing. Austin's is obviously a virus, he can't keep anything down. At least he is a big boy, and can make it to the toilet. It would just be terrible if the girls would get sick right before the recital, or if I would since I have to be there for everything, and I need to be feeling good to do everything I need to do.

Sorry, I am talking about vomit again, gotta love being a mom LOL

Here are some more pretty pictures : ) : )

I found these cups and creamer a couple of years ago at a church garage sale. This sale was mostly junk, I seriously even wondered why we bothered to keep looking. Well, then I saw these! I think this is my favorite find EVER. I would love to buy more pieces, but have never come across any more. Does anyone know anything about this pattern? There is nothing written on the bottoms. It looks like it would be from the 40's or 50's.

When the virus hit us the second time, everyone had different symptoms and frequencies than each other. Hopefully it will end where it started.

Pretty dishes.

Have a great Mother's Day weekend.

Oh no! I'll remember you in my prayers! It would be awful for you to get sick this weekend :-(
I love the turqouise dishes. The flowers on them are so very very pretty! My sweetie let me have the kitchen counter the way I always wanted it....in turqouise glass tiles :-)

I stumbled upon this post while looking for your review of Simplicity 3867 (linked from Flickr). Anyway, I found three of these cups and one lonely saucer at the thrift store. I LOVE them. I haven't been able to find any info about them either, but aren't they precious!?!?
