Thankful to be...

I have been away for too long from this place I love to be.

The problem being...

 I have too many places I love to be.

this blog
the garden
my home
my studio 

I have been in the studio for two weeks making gifts for family and friends
and getting ready for a little craft bazaar at my daughter's workplace.
I also made some things to sell at a store in Boise that I have written about
here on my blog called 
Warehouse Beautiful

Most of what I have been making are sachets that I fill with the lavender 
grown here in the garden.

The photos show a few of the ones I have left after the bazaar and 
sending some to Warehouse Beautiful in Boise.
These will be gifts for family and friends.

Isn't it funny how it's hard to stop once you start?
It is always a joy to sit at the sewing machine or stand at the table
and create things that weren't here before.

The graphics I used on most of the sachets I got from the Graphics Fairy 
and Dawn at The Feathered Nest.

I have got to get busy doing some serious Christmas decorating here in the house.
Now that the turkey is nothing but a skeleton (poor little bird) and the pies 
have gone to my is time to get the halls decked!
I haven't even been to any of your beautiful blogs to see how your 
decorating is coming along.
After I get back from doing some shopping today,
I plan on remedying that.
I'm going to sit my 'pie' hips down and catch up with all of you. 
I know many of you are more on the ball than I am, 
so I can't wait to see and be inspired.


The last of the children and the grands left for home about noon yesterday, 
and Dale and I were left to clean up the last of the left-overs.

How thankful I am for a full table this time of year.
Thankful for the blessing of family.
I remember looking around the table Thursday and thinking to myself,
''how did I get so lucky to have these people be a part of my life?''

There's always a lot of laughter and a lot of chatter, 
and NO one remembers to get the camera out to take pictures of it all!
Thankfully there's always Christmas!

I received a special delivery from Italy!
A few weeks ago I won a giveaway offered by Monica of The White Bench.
I feel so lucky to have have won two 8x12 prints of Monica's amazing photography.
I was able to choose my favorites, and then she generously tucked in special gifts for me.
I imagine many of you know of Monica and her beautiful artwork that is published in 
many of the Stampington publications. 
I love it when I pick up a Somerset Life or Home, etc
and see many of her creations within their pages.
She has an incredible talent for painting and you can see many of her 
paintings on her blog. I know you will recognize them as soon as you see them.
She has a generous heart and shares many tutorials on her blog.
I have learned how to do many things from following her instructions.  
Monica has been a great blogging friend from almost the time I started my blog 
and was always so encouraging.
 I thank her for that.

At this time of Thanksgiving I would love to let all who read this blog know 
how grateful I am for each and every one of you. 
This blog is a joy to me and I am thankful to be---here!

It's wonderful to read that you've been busy and surrounded by those who love and adore you.

Your creativity is, as ever, truly inspiring and I will wait with great anticipation to see the Christmas transformation of your special home.

Happy day!

The Polka Dot Closet said...

I sat my pie hips right here and enjoyed every creation and picture!!! Gorgeous! I love all of the sachets and i am sooo jealous that you grow your own lavender! Just not the right climate here in the south!


Jacqueline @ HOME said...

....and, we are thankful that you are there too June. Your work is beautiful and how lucky for your family that you have some left over. They will be thrilled when they open their gifts and find one of your lavender sachets.
Although it's hard work, it's lovely to be busy and to fill your life with things that you love doing. You can only be in one place at a time !!
.....and what a beautiful gift that you received from Italy and at such a great time, it being Thanksgiving for you. I can just imagine what a lovely place your table must have been for you and your family.
I am really looking forward to seeing your home decorated for Christmas June. I know that you will make it look so beautiful. XXXX

Unknown said...

Oh, June! Magnifique! I so love your lavender sachets, the young lady images, your delicate trims. You have such a touch in your designs & creations. I wish I could use lavendaer but alas, I cannot.
How exciting you will be selling your preciousness ... there will be many customers clamoring for your treasures.
Best wishes for huge successes.
Love you, sweet friend ~

Suzanne@Meridian Road said...

I'm going to have to stop in and see you wares! Very pretty. It sounds like you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Trisha said...

I am definitely going to find Warehouse Beautiful now the next time I go to Boise! So glad to hear that you had such a wonderful Thanksgiving...your family is so lucky to have you! Have a wonderful week!


Diane said...

Lucky you. Congratulations on your treasures June. You have been busy making a lot of pretty things. I'm so glad you had a nice Thanksgiving with your family. I always love to see when you've posted, it's like a warm letter from home. Blessings, Diane

Karen Valentine said...

Oh Une I know just what you mean about too many places you love to be!!! I have that exact same problem!
Balancing everything I enjoy can be really hard sometimes. Somethings always have to give. The key is to rotate the those things so you don't stay away from any one thing for two long!!! I'm glad you had a wonderful
Thanksgiving sweetie. May the rest of your week be just as sweet.

erin's art and gardens said...

june, you have created such beautiful treasures...your lavendar filled sachets and your beloved family! i totally understand putting the blog on the back burner as there are many more important things in life...and i really understand getting lost in your work and the creating of things! i have no sense of time when i am creating...a wonderful feeling. i love to come to your blog to see your beautiful images and fantastic photography.
"pie hips" that is funny.

oldgreymare said...

I thank my lucky stars quite often for your friendship my dear friend, and I am always happy to see you here whenever you can post. Your photos and treasures are delightful and will bring joy to many.

Tis the season, we must prepare for the onslaught of "to dos" but always be reminded to enjoy the season with all it's wonders.

Draffin Bears said...

Dear June,

I am thankful for your friendship and it is so lovely to see you back again.
I love all your gorgeous handcrafted pretties, always so much more beautiful than buying them in a shop.
Glad you had a happy time with your family gathered around.
Love your beautiful prints from Monica, I have a special gift from her too, and am grateful for friends like you and her, merci.

Hope your week is off to a dreamy start.

Michelle Palmer said...

Your treasures are lovely! Wishing you all the best :)

Junebug said...

I so love lavendar and have a large jar waiting for me to do something creative with it. Love your idea so I am stealing it. One of my favorite images is the ballarina. I know my grand daughter would love that one.
Pie hips, ha-ha, nope didn't eat one piece of pie, but I sure have stuffing and gravy hips.
I can't decorate for the holidays just yet. I'm getting my ceilings retextured if that's a word. I will be so excited when it is finished. I know your house will be decorated special just like you are to so many of us. Here's a great big hug to my special blog buddy!!!! Junebug

Candylei said...

They are all so sweet especially knowing you have also grown the lavender yourself as well! Love the little fabric rose and the bits of lace. The flower bouquet prints are gorgeous! Just like your garden.

Thanks for coming by to say hello. Oh and congrats on your win and happy you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Yes, I was counting my blessings too!

Love ya,

Olive said...

Hi June, the sachets are nostalgic and so charming. I am sure it is relaxing to make them. I too struggle with how to space out my time and I craft nothing but have a couple of business ventures, small ones, going on that keep me busy. I keep telling myself I am going to make my daughter ornaments out of her Papa's sheet music. Joe and I are blessed beyond measure and are surely grateful to be a part of this wonderful blog world. blessings♥O

Ceekay-THINKIN of HOME said...

Good to hear from you June...your sachets looks so pretty..wish I could visit one of the shops that you sell at!
You will get the decorations daughter is coming tomorrow to help me with the tree...then, guess what? I am done decorating! Yeah!

Carol Salisbury said...

Your sachets are gorgeous! Love all the images you chose. What wonderful gifts, sure to be loved!

Jacqueline~Cabin and Cottage said...

Julia @ Vintage with Laces said...

I'm so thankful that we met here in blogland, dearest June. It's always such a joy to come by and look at your gorgeous pictures of your garden, your creations and everything else you share with us. Your satchets turned out just beautiful and they must have the most wonderful scent.
I just read your comment at Carol's blog. I'm so very sorry that sweet Ashes is missing and hope that he will return like Bella did. It's amazing that cats sometimes come home after being away several months and I keep my fingers cross that he will too.
Sending extra big hugs to you, my dear friend

Celestial Charms said...

Hi June,
You make the prettiest sachets. Oh so romantic looking. So glad you enjoyed your Thankgiving.

suziqu's thread works said...

Hi dear June..I really understand about wanting to be in three places at once - your home, your garden and your studio! I suffer the same feelings. I can almost smell the fragrance coming from those divinely created sachets. They are so sweet and so feminine with such gorgeous images.
I have two bunches of lavender almost dried ready for creating the same - all this creating just fills
our hearts at the same time!
You may want to join in and even share the news of my Giveaway on my blog at present!
Love and blessings to you across the miles,

Alina said...

Anonymous said...

My goodness, you've been busy. That pie won't stay on your hips for very long! :)

Love, LOVE what you've been making! How exciting to be selling some of these as well! I'm in love with the little bears...sigh.

I haven't started decorating yet. I don't do much since it's just Hubby & me now, but I'm making a couple of new things this year.

Hope you have a lovely week, June!

Monica said...

Ooooh June! Thank you, what beautiful surprise! I'm glad you love your prints, and many thanks for all the sweet words you reserved me! They will be treasured, along with your blogging friendship.
Gosh! You've been a busy bee, the sachets are wonderful! I am also making some sachets... it's a pity that this year I don't have my home- grown lavender. Yours is sure to smell divine!
Big hugs and thanks again,

flowersandhome said...

You know what, even though Thanksgiving is something from the U.S. and Canada, I would love to introduce it here in a few years, when the kids are all grown, so I can have a table full of people and an lot of homemade food and just be thankful for everything and for being all together. It's such a beautiful holiday.
You made the loveliest things June!!!! And filled with lavender, I can almost smell them all the way to here.
Have fun decorating for Christmas. I'm looking forward to your Christmashome as I know it will be splendid again.
I actually went out to three different shops today to look for turquoise/aqua baubles but it's all red and green and white and gold or silver, so I'll have to stick with my good ol' baubles in the classic colours I guess ;-) Hubby will be pleased though I didn't spend any money on more Christmasdecoration ;-)

Mariette's Back to Basics said...

Dearest June,

You write this post so casual but in fact you are a TRUE ARTIST in designing and making the loveliest of Christmas gifts! The way you used old laces and things is incredible.
May you have a wonderful Christmas season and sending you lots of love,

Hi June! you make the loveliest treasures, and take such gorgeous photos of them! I need to get over for a visit to Monica, thank you for the introduction, I can't wait to be inspired. I was thinking the same thing as I sat at our Thanksgiving table looking at my family, how blessed am I! We were short one though, John will be home in 21 days and I can't wait! Have a fabulous week! t.xoxo

I, too, looked around our table and offered thanks to God for my wonderfully crazy, imperfect family, and our fun times together! Such richness and warm, fond, memories!

How utterly delightful to win Monica's giveaway!! She is a joy and has a heart of gold.

Hugs to you!

I am thankful you are here too. I love visiting here and seeing all your beautiful things.
I haven't put out one single Christmas decoration. I'll be going to Utah for Christmas, so I am not inspired to do anything here.

I am glad you had a wonderful time with your family.

Hi June

How lovely that you stopped by really appreciate it, as for dressing up in the countryside, I still have not forgotten the raised eyebrows when Rosie wore her pink polka dot winter coat, she really suffers from the cold and shakes alot, she is my little Jack Russell, I have a Saint Bernard too, no he does not wear clothes!

Betty Jo said...

June I know what you mean. These days are so busy, it's hard to find time for blogging. Your creations are always sooooo gorgeous! I highlighted you and your wonderful blog in my Friday Faves today. Enjoy your Christmas decorating and looking forward to the beautiful photos.

Charlene said...

Came by from Betty Jo's blog, and so glad to find you. We have the same taste, but i don't have as many children as you ; )
How wonderful to have a sweet young man that truly makes you smile every single day with his.
I adore all of your gorgeous projects. Would love you to open an ETSY shop?? I'm from Canada, so it makes it easy to buy on line since all my favourite girls live so far far away.
LOVE YOUR BLOG. Your photography is amazing June.
Thanks for the beauty today.
Sending warm hugs from Ontario, Canada

Hugs to you my friend.

C'est moi Claudette said...

Hello again
YES Wendy is my sista. I do hope you get to meet her June. She needs your hugs right now. I'd fly myself to her right now if I could. She was here this summer with 5 of my other great blogging friends. She's our Doris Day for sure. And she can SING too.
Another friend of mine is sweet Anita. She was also suppose to come this summer, but couldn't make it due to her addition on her home.
Maryjane was one of the first blogs that I commented on. LOVE HER TOO. Haven't met her. She's in CA. Kind of far from Canada.
Ok off to bed.
Have a great weekend June.
P.S. LOVE TT RABBIT and Ashes. My soft spot are fur babies.

Wow! Double Wow!! See what a lovely lovely person you are dearJune. . .a hundred comments!! It's taken me an age to scroll thru', but I have to add my big BIGGEST hug as well. It must have been so great to have all your family together, bet they were thinking the very same thoughts about you as they looked across the table to you! Every time I open your blog to visit and the photos of the garden flash into view my heart lifts, just been to visit your other site and been whisked away to that magical place too, I can almost, almost smell the fragrance of the pinky-red Rose you planted from your Mum's garden.
You've been really industrious making those delightful lavender bags they're gorgeous, I'm certain if I was a lavender plant I'd want to live in your garden darling June!

Here's that big HUGGGGGGG! X

Happy New Year June
I cannot wait to see what you have in store for us for 2012.
It's been a rough few months here at the cottage, but as the holidays come to an end, and a new year upon us, I'm hoping for smiles all around.
Thank you for coming to Canada and saying hi. I know you have many followers and lots of different blogs to catch up on, but know that you warmed my heart by coming by.
I had to look at all your pretty pictures again. I LOVE the way the RED pops out on every one. Are you sad to be putting it all away? Your home is so beautiful.
Sending you big Canadian hugs June.
Love Claudie

I know I came by yesterday and left a long winded message. Something told me to come back and now i see why IT'S GONE!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well, I just wanted you to know how much I appreciated you stopping by my little corner of the world here in Canada. It means an awful lot coming from you June.
Happy New Year my friend and I cannot wait to see what you have in store for us this year.
I LOVE the red "pop" in your pics. Just beautiful.
Love Claudie
