By Way of The Silverthorns

I have never done a book review before, but I thought why not. I was going through my parents book shelf one day and stumbled upon an old book by Grace Livingston Hill written in 1941. I was immediately interested, as I love anything antique, and then to find a stamp that the book was written during war time conditions!

Grace was born in 1865 and wrote over a hundred books in her lifetime.

The book was suprisingly good, has great morales, and a great Christian foundation.

Street Style

Today my oldest daughter (who is 11) and I went downtown to have a little girl time. And what a perfect day it was to do it! They were having a Street Style competition, four designers had four hours to make a dress they designed from scratch. After the four hours were over they walked the runway, and the judges revealed the winner. I can't began to tell you how much fun this was for my daughter and I, as we both love fashion and design!

This one above was my daughters Favorite made by Melissa May

This one was my FAV, its a giant bow! Love it!
made by Heidi Busk

This one is beautiful, but would have been a nice if she was wearing a top! 
Made by, Rachel Marie Hurst.
Did not care for this one at all, it totally looks like it was thrown together in 4 hours! 
Made by, Tricia Hoke

Start of a new quilt I am working on

The finished quilt! My Mother loved it, I had a picture of my grandmother put on fabric and 
quilted around it. A special memory for my mother :)

If I ever finish this quilt, I will never do triangles again!

Home Decor

This is the dinning room chair I reupholstered. They were white,  you can imagine 
with 3 kids what they looked like! Wish I had taken a before pic.
It is so easy to do this, all you need is the fabric and a staple gun.
