Welcome Back - We're Open! + Patriotic Decor

Hey friends!

I'm so excited to be back and have the shop open again. I was able to enjoy a much-needed break and reset. :) While I am still battling some area's of my health and my recent diagnosis of endometriosis, life doesn't wait and my little shop is one area that brings me joy, so to me it's necessary for part of my health and happiness. I missed it and all of you SO MUCH! I truly enjoy sending little packages of quilt-lovelies to you all to help you decorate your homes and send gifts of love and cheer to your loved ones. It makes my day! And I hope my products bring a smile and color to your homes as well. :)

With summer creeping up on us, I have added a few patriotic items to my Etsy shop, including two gorgeous table runners and a darling double star mug rug! If you have a love for stars and stripes then I've got you covered. ;) Haha.

You'll also find a variety of charming corner bookmarks ready to go that make wonderful little gifts for family and friends (or yourself!). It's wonderful to grab a glass of lemonade and sit under a tree with a good book and the sun shining! Plus, I have some inventory of table runners, mug rugs, and wall hangings for selection in various styles and colors ready for decorating your home or gifting.

I hope you all are doing well this year and enjoying the beginning of summer so far!

Blessings and thank you for joining me along this journey,

Short Break


It's time for a bit of a break to refresh, heal, and restore myself and my business!

2020 had a lot of turns and road bumps and I'm still recovering and working through things. My health and some personal things have been blocking me of late, and I'm the kind of person who likes to give my full focus to my shop and craft to provide the best service and product. I just can't do that right now. Rather than pushing myself over my limits, it's best to take some time for myself and come back stronger and healthier. :) 

My shop will be closed for perhaps a few weeks, or perhaps a couple months, I'm not sure. All open orders at this time will be completed, but I'll be taking no new orders for the time being.

Thanks for your understanding and I hope and pray to serve you all again very soon!

Reading Challenge + Giveaway!

Hello friends! Happy start of June! I just love the start of a new month so fresh with possibilities. 😍

My longtime blogging friend, Tarissa hosts an annual Louisa May Alcott reading challenge every June and being a reading enthusiast I just had to share the fun news with you all! The challenge begins today and it's so easy to join in the fun, and you can set your own reading goals for the month.


Tarrisa's blog, In The Bookcase is filled with her wonderful book reviews, resources of free books and book sites, giveaways and so much more! I have often found a new book to add to my reading list from her. The reading challenge is a wonderful way to explore the world of Louisa May Alcott's and her writings, from old favorites like Little Women to some many have never even heard of before.

This year Tarissa and I are collaborating and I'm giving away a set of two lovely corner bookmarks from my shop for those joining the challenge! I'm so excited! 😁 

Find these bookmarks in my shop here!

You can find all the details for the reading challenge and the giveaway on Tarrisa's blog. 
And be sure to take a look around her wonderful blog!
You do NOT need to enter the reading challenge to enter for the giveaway...however reading along will earn you extra points! 

There are so many stories Louisa wrote that most people have never read before...including myself. And if you have never read Little Women and only seen the films you MUST give it a try. 😘 This challenge is a wonderful way to get some of those classic reads checked off your list (and even add some new books to your to-read list)!

I hope you'll join us!
Happy Reading,

P.S. - My reading choices for the challenge are two short stories: May Flowers and Marjorie's Three Gifts.

P.P.S ~ I managed to read only May Flowers in June, though I will still read Marjorie's Three Gifts this summer. May Flowers was a charming story and I really enjoyed it! A lovely short story of a group of young Boston girls who challenge each other to do good deeds through the long winter months ahead. Each girl's story of her efforts is than described in her own words of her successes and struggles along the way. I found it charming and inspiring and sweet. A wholesome reminder to be kind and share from our abundance in whatever way we are able to. :) 

Thank you Tarissa for inspiring us to read these beautiful classics!

Spring Bookmarks in the Shop!

The weather here in Delaware has been so nice of late...we even had a 70 degree day!! Wow! So I spent a few days gathering some spring prints to make into corner bookmarks for you guys.

I'm pretty excited about how these turned out! I've had a few of the prints waiting to be used and it was the perfect time to bring them out to play. :D

Visit the link at the bottom of the post at any time to see these featured bookmarks and all of my products.

*Corner Bookmarks*

As always, the bookmarks come in sets of 2 coordinating bookmarks 
and are sized to 2-1/2 inches each. They are lined inside with interfacing to give it stability and stitched neatly around the outside edges.

I myself love using the bookmarks...they are just the right size, can be used in both hardback and paperback, and I've never had them fall out of my books! 

Here are just a few things customers are saying about these bookmarks:
"They are so adorable and perfect. They seem very durable and way better than the paper/cardstock ones. They look exactly as pictured! I even received a sweet little note in my package which made my day! Definitely recommend and definitely would buy from here again!" 

"They are beautiful and awesome to use when reading - perfect!"

  • Starting with my favorite (though it's hard to choose!!) is the Honeybee set - There is a bit of silver glitter on the bees wings for added sparkle and the sunny yellow gingham makes me want to go for a picnic. :D Bees are super popular right now and should always be celebrated!

  • Anchors Away!  This bookmark set will transport you to far off places with pirates and adventures! ;D This would be a great gift for the adventurer, seafaring, or naval person in your life. I used the spotted blue print to give the feeling of "waves" beneath the anchors.

  • Blossoms for springtime give an air of olden times in the days of the victorian era or time of Jane Austen. Sweet peach, yellow, coral, and red tones contrast beautifully against the royal blue. I think this set would be a lovely gift for Mom on upcoming Mother's Day!

  • Get your baking on with these SWEET Cupcake Bookmarks! :D Darling peaches and cream cupcakes with a touch of aqua make a great gift for the baking enthusiast. Mark your spot in your favorite novel, or use them to save your favorite recipe in a cookbook. These would be a fun birthday-themed gift as well.

  • This Prairie Set will carry you away to simpler times on the farm and make you long for sunny meadows and a tall glass of iced tea! :D The gorgeous navy floral print has little yellow and red buds so I coordinated some filigree prints in a rich dark red-orange and golden yellow to match. I backed them both in the pretty blue floral print.

  • Something for the sewers and crafters! This set comes with a mug rug AND a set of corner bookmarks. I've highlighted the vintage sewing machine (did your grandma have one of these, too?) on the mug rugs and showcased the fun sewing tools. There were so many playful colors I went with a mixed theme this time: green, royal blue, light and dark pink, and sunny yellow! They are backed with the same wavy blue print I used in my anchors bookmarks set. ;) This set would be a darling gift for any crafter...I always keep a cup of hot tea near me while I work and the bookmarks can be used to save your spot in your craft books!

I now have over 15 styles of prints for corner bookmarks in my shop for seasonal and all ages...guys and girls! There are a lot of styles, colors, and patterns to choose from. And don't forget to check out the mug rugs and seasonal items while you're at it! :D 

Thanks for stopping by, have a great week everyone! 
Love you guys!
