Moving to SC

Happy New Year 2011. I have moved from my life long home in Toledo, Ohio to Greenwood, South Carolina. My husband's job brings us to this lovely new countryside and we are trying to settle into a new routine of empty nester's and new residents. Right now everything is a sea of boxes and of course I can't find a thing. As soon as we settle in, I plan to sew pillowcase dresses again and find a new market here in the south. I have lots of ideas for a Posh 2011. Right now we are enjoying the season without all the "freezing"! Y'all keep warm and keep in touch. Cheers!

Turkeys 2010

Happy Thanksgiving to Mia and Courtney. Gobble, Gobble and eat lots of turkey so you Wobble, Wobble.

Hello Everyone, today was the Point Place Parade and I was asked to put some Pillowcase dresses on consignment at the Point Place T's and More shop. This is a tee shirt shop owned by Jane Murray in Point Place (Toledo) and she specializes in mostly silk screening, some embroidery and has some really neat cigar box purses that she did classes with. She also has consignment embroidery shirts and tee's embellished with studs and beads that are very neat. I am editing the blog tonight to show where each of my dresses are at currently and noting that many of them are ONLY ONE's left. This week new stars and stripes dresses will be posted and look for a new "fishy fishy" dress that's really cute. Thanks to everyone for visiting my site and especially my new e-Bay friends in California, Louisiana, Texas and Michigan. I appreciate all of you. Red Wings Win Game 3, the cup is almost full.
