At the Cabin..

Will my 'Tussie Mussie' partner email me , her info and wants as ready to do here..


Downloaded these cute doodle buttons and trims from http://www.peppermintcreative.com/ the Freebie kit for August. This little girl looks how I felt by the end of the week! [minus the million bug bites I got!] argh! itch itch..


Hello, we got home last night been at the cabin since last Sunday July 29th.. the day after my show.. was my husband's vacation and he was eager to get to the cabin! I cleaned , changed all bedding, washed walls, floors everything thing with Murphy's oil soap... and rearranged furniture all the while getting bite by every insect in the and out of the cabin!! Replanted my perennials and a couple of shrubs by the deck.. and my dear husband edged the hosta and new beds with birch logs.. so cute and rustic..I could not figure out why some the plants were doing poorly... then I dug around found that the 'chipmunks' were tunneling under the rootballs of the plants! So crossed my fingers and hope new locations of plantings will be okay! Only went one night for a pontoon ride..and picked berries on Saturday...but been so dry.. the pickings were not so good but still we managed a big bowl of blackberries..so home now and will try to catch up on my emails and blog messages and get my Swaps mailed out this coming week!!

Debra: Glad you had fun with nature (except for those bug bites!)
I am going to send you both! Will box em up and mail tomorrow! I have had so much fun making them! I did think that you were at a show or too busy- so I am so glad that you got home and picked! I am sending one to Amy to for being such a sweet hostess. Thanks in advance- I can't wait to see the mermaid! I'll be sure to post pictures! xxxooo calamity k

That sounds like such fun. I have blackberries in the freezer that will become a cobbler when it gets a little cooler. Nita
