Thanks to my fabulous son-in-law, the RSS feed is now working. If you would like to be notified when a new item is posted to the blog, please sign up.
Also, my dear son is working on getting the store up and open for sales! This blog has become a family wide venture! Hopefully, in the next 6 weeks or so, it should be operational. So please sign up for the RSS feed so you will know just what treasures I am finally willing to part with.
In hopes of piquing your interest, I will tell you that I have some out-of-print classic heirloom books and patterns, antique lace, Swiss handlooms and embroideries, antique needlework magazines, wonderful baby blanks (matching onesies, bibs, caps and bath towel sets), Irish linen blanks, miles of heirloom laces and tatting, silk photo transfers (some Jenny Haskins), antique buttons, quality domestic trims and more. Please do check them out. I need the space in my sewing room!
In two weeks I will be having total knee replacement, so the posts will be less frequent. I’m in a frenzy, writing and photographing projects in anticipation of being out of pocket for approximately 3 weeks. I am adding a new article no more than every other day in order to have enough material to post regularly through my recuperation. My goal is to have a backlog ready so I can post them from my laptop while at the rehab facility.
For the past two weeks, I’ve been extraordinarily tied up with my sweet 88 year old childless aunt, who has always treated me like her daughter. I love it and love her, so she has been the focus of my attention during this time period. Fortunately, this coincided with the grandchildren’s trip out of state for a family gathering. So at least I didn’t have homeschool responsibilities to juggle.
Aunt Aileen has been hospitalized twice in this time period, with only a day between stays. Between visiting her, keeping up with dr. reports, trying to get the folks at her assisted living facility to address her needs, updating the rest of the family and all the classes and appointments for my upcoming knee surgery, my blog posts have been less frequent than I would like.
Thanks to each and every one of you for reading my prattle and for your encouraging and interesting comments. It means a great deal to me.
