Friday Pretties...*and a giveaway winner*

It is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all. 
Laura Ingalls Wilder

  There isn't a sewing room in my house, just a little space in our "catch-all" room, 
right next to the computer and piano. This little nook looks outside 
to our front yard, where I can watch my kids playing there while I sew.  
I had a little help with the photos though...
Milo always wants to be in the middle of the action :-)
I'm looking forward to doing a little sewing this weekend...I hope you find time
to do something you love too.
The winner of the CSN giveaway is.....
Congratulations Becky, I'll be emailing you.
Visit Joyce for more Friday Pretties here :-)
 Blessings,
Marcia

Take good care,

Milo is a beautiful kitty. I don't really have a sewing room either, it is sort of scattered all over the house. It makes it had when I want to find something. :) At least I have my clothes in the closet but I also sew in there too. :)
I am glad you get to sew though. I had my grandsons that are twins over today. I tried to sew with them here.
They sat in my lap. Just like ole times. It was so sweet.

My brother used to have a cat named Milo. His Milo was probably 4x the size of yours. His stomach drug the floor. :o) That was the meanest cat I've ever seen.

Have a great weekend! La

Lucky Becky! Loved your little "pearls". Older brothers can be sooo hilarious. Mimi

Having any sort of space to craft in is truly a luxury and one to be enjoyed! Having a window with a view makes it even more pleasurable. I love the conversation about Viagara Falls. That is just a hoot! Isn't it great that the younger ones have their older siblings to steer them right ??? HA! Have a great weekend. Tammy

Julie Harward said...

Can I have MILO? cute cute cute! LOL

Heidi said...

Ah yes...if there is a stack of fabric there is surely a cat dozing sweeting on top of it. Milo is just so beautiful!

Your pictures are always so beautiful. I would love to upgrade and get a new camera and would love to know what you use. I'm sure some if it is your skills to don't want to discount those. Your shots are always so great.

After scrolling thru and looking at all your lovely photos I realized you live in SoCal. I'm in Covina but my brother lives in Pinon Hills in the high desert.

Valerie@chateaualamode.typepad.com said...

I wish I had a sewing room, then again I'd really have to sew and not just talk about wanting to sew....What is it that you sew? I must have missed it along the way. I'd love to see your finished projects. I hope you have a wonderful weekend with your family.

Sarah @ Modern Country Style said...

What a completely adorable cat! He looks a bit like one of ours...only yours has more of a beard....what else shall I call it, if not a beard?!!

I love it that you can sit and sew, whilst watching your children play out at the front. That sounds like dream living to me.
