Inspired from INSIDE the Home

So,its been raining and a little chilly for like 4 days here now.Although I don't like the chill in the air...especially being as its August,I find the sound of the rain very relaxing..While sitting in my newly located sewing room ( small room that leads to our upper porch/balcony),I cracked the door to allow the soothing sound of the rain to pour in and began to sew.

Trying something new,I was inspired by my dining room,which is completely red,white,and blue Americana,primitive decor....I began to make these adorable Americana ornaments with a primitive look from fabric remnants,buttons,etc.After sewing and stuffing these little guys ,I then hand stitched and stained them,to give that older primitive feel.I was very pleased with the finished product.These hand crafted stars and hearts can be used as tree ornaments...whether its your Christmas tree,or just a decorative tree in your home year round or even as hanging shelf or wall decor.The possibilities are endless.

Just for Laughs....

OK, so my little brother whom is 15 ,visited with us for the past 2 weeks while my younger son stayed with my mom in southern Maryland...which is about 2 and a 1/2 hours away from were we reside in western Maryland.So DH wakes me up this morning at 4 to get ready to take him home and pick up our son.I didn't fall asleep until after 11:30 and hes waking me up at 4 am....UGH!We load everyone up and head out onto the road early just to beat the heat and humidity...well as we're about 35-40 minutes away from Destination "Grandma's House", sleep deprived as I am mind you... just start bursting into laughter for no reason at all.DH looks at me.. I laugh.I say something...I laugh.Then I decide it'd be best if I turn my head and look out my window to keep from staring at DH so I don't laugh any more because at this point my sides hurt so bad from laughing I can't stand it.....and there I see this stupid sign that says "DRURY LANE" and I lose it!!! I'm like isn't that where the "MUFFIN" man lives???? and DH is cracking up saying,"I hope we don't get pulled over for any reason because they're gonna think you're on something or just plain crazy!!!" What a morning we had!I haven't laughed so much about nothing in my life!!

Support Something??? These ladies Do!

Trisha of Dainty Diva's Boutique totally supports Breast Cancer awareness.She recently lost her oldest sister,Melissa due to the disease and before her passing,she asked that her family continue her memory by raising awareness and donations for breast cancer research.Trisha has respected her sisters wishes and kept her memory alive ,not only by signing up for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Las Vegas on May 5th,but listing her "THINK PINK" items within her etsy shop,Dainty Diva's Boutique as well as her eBay auctions.All proceeds from her Think Pink Auctions and store listings go directly to her fundraiser.Purchasing name will appear on her page along with donation amount.
Those who know her,know you'll find things pertaining to Breast Cancer Awareness all over Trisha's MySpace page as well.

Now on to Sharon of,The Princess Bowtique.In her etsy shop you'll find these patriotic camouflage ponytail holders.A great way to show support for anyone who has family or friends serving our country....or if you're just a proud supporter of our troops.

And lastly,I recently stumbled across this seller on etsy,Support Our Troops a military wife who offers buyers a chance to purchase military care packages to send to our troops.Buyer picks 5 items of their choosing from a list provided by seller.What a great idea and so very thoughtful!

Useless Info About Me

I've been tagged by Michele of Michele's Jewelry Design to share useless information about myself! So here goes....

First with....

The Rules:

“Each person links to the person who tagged them. Then each person posts the rules before their list, then they list 8 things about themselves. At the end of the post, that person tags and links to 8 other people and then visits those peoples’ sites and comments letting them know that they have been tagged, and to come read the post, so they know what they have to do.”


1.I am the only child born to "my" parents,but I have 2 younger brothers and 4 younger sisters through the re-marriage of my parents to new spouses.

2.At birth my name was supposed to be Crystal Leigh,but due to my grandmothers persuasion
I was named Leigh Ann.

3.My name is Leigh ( and I hate it),but I'm known to most as LeighAnn

4.My toes are always cold no matter what! ...seriously!!

5.I once fractured my wrist when I was younger...fighting with a boy over crayfish we caught.He knocked me off the back of my grandfathers truck and HELLO FRACTURE!! ( the jerk!)

6.I love fairies,especially from the artwork of Amy Brown.

7.One of my all time favorite movies is GREASE.You can catch me singing the tunes and doing the moves throughout the whole laughing,you know you do it too!!!

8.I collect antique enamel ware...from pots and pans to utensils and name it.
