Get Your Bag-Bag!


Hey everybody, jump over to Georges blog and get your Bag-Bag! George is my friend Wende's very talented 10 year old son. He has taken over Wende's sewing machine (the poor dear had to get a new machine because of this!) and is making these adorable bags to hold your plastic grocery bags, thus the name "bag-bag". He is selling them for $10 a piece of which $1 for each sale is going to Heifer International. I am so impressed by this little guy. You will be too! Are you still here? Go visit George...


I remembered to bring my camera on our evening walk tonight. This is a house that sits a few blocks up the hill and back in the trees. I always think of it as the "storybook" house. Somehow it reminds me of Little Red Riding Hood. I can just see her little red cape bopping around the corner of the house.


Farther up the road is this spectacular view of the Youngs River valley and Saddle Mountain. I could stand here forever...


Spring! 'nuff said.
May you all be blessed with cherry blossoms...

Oh, and I forgot... I love that house! It does have an enchanted feeling to it, doesn't it!

Lovely little bag bag!
I'm searching through my fabric so I can hire him to sew one for me soon too. :)

That view of saddle mtn is breathtaking!

I love that house and the property it sits on! When we take walks, that's our turn-around point. I have to see it as much as I can. It is truly a dream house of ours (and way out of reach sadly). And I think I saw Little Red Riding Hood once!

I love your Georges original, (as I love mine too)! It looks PERFECT in your beautiful kitchen. Props to Georges (and his fabulous mom as well!)!!!

Paula, I'm jealous of all the beautiful sites you have around you!! Can you pack up some of those cherry blossoms and send them my way. I absolutely love their blooms. :)

Really beautiful photos you have posted here. Makes me wish I could visit that area.

I'd love to have the pattern for the Sunset Shawl. No guarantees on how many years it may take me to garner up the courage to tackle it though. I tend to procrastinate a lot! LOL

If you can e-mail it to me, here's my addy - jenniferertmer@peoplepc.com

And - 3 grandchildren in one summer! WOW! That's a blessing in triplicate if ever there was one! And if you enjoy yours as much as I do mine - nothing better in the whole wide world!

It looks like spring has sprung there!
It has been realy warm here this last week & is supposed to stay that way. Green grass is starting to pop up, but you have to look under all the brown stuff to see it.
We're over half way done caulfing.
Our house is getting built.They are working on framing.
I hope you're feeling better!

That is one very special kid! I love his apron, too.

And love the pics - the Pacific Northwest is so beautiful. Even after ten years since leaving there, I still miss it.
