I've spoken about these two adorable ladies before: Tiffin and Joyanne . Tiffin is the one who went to Portland with me this year and held my hand, well not physically but mentally, while I got the nest on my wrist. And Joy was a right hand during the Country Living Fair. So you may recognize these pretty faces from here on the blog. We all three met at the infamous Shakerag festival 3 years ago. And over those 3 years we have slowly developed one of those sisterhood type friendships. We don't see each other much, or talk much much as we should. But rather we have one of those friendships that is effortless and brings so much simple joy to my life. We share so much in common and use this common thread to continue weaving what I know will be an eternity scarf.
I hope each of you has some type of connection like this. Because it is invaluable to have women like this in your life. Strong, grounded, confident and beautiful from the inside out. Yep...I am one lucky duck to have had these two cross my path when they did. And like I always say, everyone comes into your life EXACTLY when and where they are supposed to.
While at the Country Living Fair I joked with Joy that we should totally have a show in my house. Forget the setting up a tent and freezing our butts off....have it in a nice warm house. Right at Christmas. Call it something like "Handmade Holiday". Well, all 3 agreed, the date was set and the next thing you know the day was here!! I was bubbling over with excitement. I love to share my home with people. Love. And yes, I was running around like a banshee the day before cleaning, cutting bushes, and decorating. Of course as much stuff as we had you'd hardly have noticed a crumb on the floor!
She had loads of aprons and prints as well. Like I said, she crafts for your entire home. Got to love a well-rounded crafter. My catch phrase for her: vintage edgy home
As soon as we set a date a sidebar link will appear. And be blogged about too I am sure. For now, enjoy the rest of your week. We are off to Alabama for a spell of Holiday Cheer!!
