Huger, Preserving Memories

Mums The Word

I am lucky! I have two Mums that I love and get along with. Both are extra ordinary women!  I have a different and special relationship with each.
How excited I was to present early Mother's Day presents to BOTH my Mom and Step Mom.  And to see their surprised faces when they saw their own special "Women We Love" pillow. I tried to choose fabrics that seemed like "them"... And I think I got it?!  Or at least they both said so...

Mother's Day is May 14th!   


How about presenting your Mom (or step-Mom) with a "Women We Love" pillow?

Combining Garment District Finds

I spent a week out in CA a week or so ago.  Good time visiting with family especially my own three children.  As they get older it's hard to get us all together!!

The last full day I decided to brave the 12 lane interstate in my rented Ford Flex to downtown LA and the garment district.  Boy is it something to see!  Lots of junk. Lots of people. But oh what a great time digging for treasures! My new friend Carlos helped me cut yards of fabrics.  His mom helped me with some wonderful sequined trim.  I also found some interesting buttons and Liberty of London prints.

It's A New Year!

It's A New Year!
Happy New Year to All!


Christmas was a busy season for me! As I know it was for you too!!! Why does so much activity and hecticity have to fall in the short period between Thanksgiving and New Years?  I wish it could be spread out a bit?!?!

I thank so many of you for your orders this Christmas season!  I hope there were a lot of happy smiles and memories evoked when family members and friends opened their gift Christmas morning. I shared a lot of them on Instagram and Facebook.  Check them out and would love for you to share :)

This new year I hope to broaden myself.  Hence this musing in my newsletter:

I went to the VMFA the other day.  I had let my membership expire. For me, being a member of the museum is a must. I remember going to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts as a little girl with my grandmother. It was so exciting to get to see the mummies down in the catacomb exhibit. (Unfortunately that exhibit is no longer.) And the Faberge Eggs... And then to have lunch in the "members only" dining room was such a treat.  You no longer have to be a member to go to the dining rooms but the "members only" is a special memory I have because I was with my grandmother...
