    My sweet hubs added crown molding and beadboard to my outdated 1980's oak cabinets. He then painted them a creamy cottage white. I love the brushed silver pulls he put on the doors and drawers.

Hello sweet Patti,
What a dear post about your Grandmother. I can't imagine how wonderful it must have been having a Grandma who was a tailor. I'm so glad her pretties went to you. You do really treasure them all. Your spoolie is adorable. I have been away this past week and am so excited about returning home to work on my Swap Spoolie. My head is spinning with ideas. I have started but haven't finished just how I will put it all together.
Have a wonderful Sunday, my dear friend.
Carolynn xoxo

Looks like you're having too much "spoolie" fun!!! How blessed to have your grandma's goodies, I, too treasure everything I got from my grandparents. Have a lovely week,


SO nice you got to save one of your Grandmas stuff. I had an Aunt who I received alot of sewing stuff from and I treasure it. Your spoolie is adorable.


Oh Patti! Look at that beautiful sky! I don't think there is anything more beautiful than a clear winter's day sky. Winter? Isn't it March? We are expecting 10 inches tomorrow!
I love this story Patti about your grandmother being a tailor. You definitely inherited her skills! I am so happy to see this spool tower. It is just so clever and cute! I will definitely be on the lookout for spools.
Always inspiring to visit here! Elizabeth

Hi Patti,
Oh...What a delight to discover that you are from Ramona. My son, Tim, his wife and new baby boy all live in Ramona. He works in RB and when it came to looking for a house they chose Ramona. They bought a house nearly two years ago and love it there. About the only time they travel down the mountain to SD is for church and doctoring.

I absolutely love your spoolie. Every tiny little detail is cute as can be. I have been losing sleep at night just dreaming of all the cute spoolies that we are all making. I just returned home from helping out with my 90 year old Mom for the past week and a half. I am anxious to head for my sewing room and get back to working on my Easter Swap pretties.
This is my first swap and I want to be a good partner to Joyce.

Have a blessed day, my darling friend.
Carolynn xoxo
