Oh those needlework kits are lovely...will they be available on your etsy??? Julierose

Anita T.

I know I am late to the party, but do you know where one can buy Tilly all in one place? My local shop doesn't have it, in spite of my specifically requesting it after I came back from Market in Oct.


*sigh* - where have I been, I found you through your generous offer of fabric to Alicia over at Posie. I love your work, love it - so happy to have found you. Now I'm off to your etsy shop!


Your photos are so warm and inviting! Our goldfinches here in PA are not too golden yet. All the birds are eating like crazy though. Thankfully the robins are here in mass. Maybe when spring hits it will be with a bang! I hope so because I want to say goodbye to temperatures in the 20's and 30's!


yes, its all available here:

Charlotte, did you grow that magnificent orange Ranucullus?


heavens no! from the grocery and as you saw on IG, I did get so much pleasure from that little clutch of stems! cmon, spring!


Lovely photos, especially the last one with the light streaming across the table. Hurry up, Spring!


I live in the desert in Wa. State and we require underground sprinklers to have a landscape other than beige. Yesterday was the annual "turn on the sprinklers" party. The birds came with fresh spring songs and played in the sprinklers like kids on a hot July afternoon. While I chip the ice off the birdbaths each morning, yesterday reminded me that spring is on its way. (Our finches are becoming buttery yellow - like butterflys flitting from branch to branch.) Have a wonderful week.


The coming of the Red Winged Blackbird, I read, is the official signal of spring's arrival in the Northeast. It's here! xo
