February doldrums......

"Bunny Beauty"

"Through the tulips"

"Baxter!!!  Is nothing off limits?"

February Window Redo
February is that month where you start to feel the itch for spring, at least I do.  We have had a VERY mild winter too so that makes it even worse.  We barely have any snow and most of the week has been sunny, which is misleading when you step outside and it's still in the 20's, but I certainly cannot complain.  It does feel good to walk in the stores and start to see spring clothes and gardening stuff.
With Spring in mind I designed two new bunny patterns.  Mom has already hooked one.  I asked her if she has little hooking fairies up in her room because she is really churning them out.  She is half done the second pattern, I'll add a photo as soon as it's done.  Both patterns are available on my website,
Next is Baxter!!  You have to say Baxter! with an exclamation because that's normally how we talk to/about him.  He's always in trouble or into something.  Well, I caught him in a quiet moment, but geez, is nothing off limits with him.  He has to lay on something that belongs to someone else.  If he's not laying in the wool, he's usually on my pillow (lovely) or in Ollies (my mother's dog) bed. 
Last photos are of the window in our entry room, which we use as a dining room.  Over the holidays I had these Americana buntings up, but in a way that I was really never happy with.  You know how you just know when it's right.  Well, I found "right" this morning.  It truly is February when rehanging your curtains to find the right look makes you giddy!  What an improvement though! 
Well, better get to work, until next time.....

About Me

Thank you very much for taking the time to read my blog. I am married and just entering the second phase of my life as a Army retiree's wife. My husband and I did 25+ years in the Army. He is now officially a retired Colonel and has just entered the civilian workforce and I am happily settled in our 1830 Stone house. I (along with my Mom) operate www.theoldtatteredflag and currently we are building a small shop in the back part of the house. We live in Northern NY, right near the Canadian border. I have two handsome sons and 2 puggles. Life is busy for us, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
