Wool Pincushions

I found a wonderful lady named Ellen in Port Angeles, WA that makes these fabulous hand-crafted pincushions. She even sent me a small gift. The cute little bunny on a vintage spool of thread. How cute is she? Thank you Ellen for the thoughful gift. I LOVE IT!
Sorry, the bunny is not available for purchase, but you can find the other adorable pincushions on my website. Since these are all handcrafted, it takes a little longer to get them back in stock. Some variations will occur when reordering.

Butchart Gardens Canada

My husband and I just got back from Seattle, WA celebrating our 26th wedding anniversary. While we were there we took a ferry to the Butchart Gardens on Vancouver Island, north of Victoria in Cananda. I believe this must be what Heaven looks like. It was absolutely the most beautiful world-class gardens. The purple flowers were my husband's favorite. It is definitely a must see. I am in love with the island and would love to live there.
