Weekends have taken on a new meaning for me.

Switzerland arrives on Sundays with

food for the soul.

Vegetable Soup and corn bread

Somebody got into the pound cake before their dinner.  I’m not naming any names, but that isn’t my hand – just sayin’.

I had mine with my morning coffee – awesome.

Apple cake – I’ll have that with my afternoon tea.

A new thrift store opened near us a bit ago, I’ve been anxious to go.

 Mr. Cottage took me there on the way to the grocery store on Saturday.

Fire-up the Singer.

Among my many scores was this skirt.

I removed the zipper, and cut it straight down the middle.

A piece of black binding with orange rickrack machine stitched, and  a big bold green button.  I’m embellishing with a few embroidery stitches.  This will go around the top of the wrap.

Playing with the design.

I’ve pinned into place an old zipper, for extra funkiness, and some green pom-pom fringe.

I’m not done yet.

When finished, I will have a one of  a kind new wrap cape, all made with scrap materials.

Switzerland agreed to model it when the project was complete, she just didn’t know what she was agreeing to.  Ha the laugh is on you – girlfriend!

My holiday spirit is usually brimming over by this point.  Not so much this year.

Plugging in the little snowman to my usb – easy and  sweet.

He changes color as the glittery snow falls around him.

Giving up my 25 year tradition of cooking and hosting Thanksgiving at my house.

That’s a tough one to swallow.  The rest of the family is taking over this year.

 At least this year I won’t have to worry about any of the jokes about turning the oven on –  that’s another story.

The sun is shinning brightly today and it looks as though all things are possible.

My friends embellished my cornbread plate will little inspirational quotes.

I like this one for today:

Determination is the wake-up call to the human will.

Hope y’all had a lovely weekend.

See you later, Bye!

  1. Mmmm, soul food and a new thrift shop score! Sounds like a heavenly weekend. Can’t wait to see the cape when it is finished!

    1. It was a nice weekend. I’ve come to a bit of a stand still on the cape, waiting for the inspiration to strike again. It will at the most inopportune time.

    Loved your phrase – Fire up the Singer! And who would have thought to make a cape out of that skirt? Genius.

    1. Genius – giggle giggle – wonder how it will turn out? I’ve never been a fashion maven anyway, and I always wear mismatched socks. Further more I can’t afford to wear designer labels, not that I would if I could. I wear my own designer label – laughing all the way to the funny farm.
