It is a busy time of year for me, and I am having a hard time finding the time for all of the bits and pieces (like keeping up with my blog). Here I will show you a new messenger bag that I just finished. It was inspired long ago in this post by my garden. I named this the "Sweet Potato" Messenger because of the color and the vining, organic nature of the print. The lining is a Civil War reproduction stripe in cheddar.

Today I am working on completing a donation to the YMCA for their charity auction, and then it's back to keeping up on inventory for the holidays. I just inherited a bag of gorgeous wool sweaters that I plan to make up into throw pillow covers. Stay tuned!

In home news, Bronwyn lost her top front tooth. She looks older to me already! Here she is, feeling proud of herself!

Hi Bronwyn! I love your beautiful smile. Hi Colleen, I love your beautiful bags. I just finished a bag too. Check it out on my blog when you get a spare moment..(take 5 minutes for yourself, busy mom!)
Love, Julia

Isn't it funny how something as little as a missing tooth can completely change a child?
I know exactly what you mean!! When mine lost their first tooth, that was when they started looking less like my little boy, and more like a real "kid". haha, wait until she gets those giant chicklet teeth in place of her lost one!
Reuben's are in now and they seem SO big for his little mouth! Makes me feel like he's growing up way too fast.
