Hey there my good blogging buds! I just finished up this purse I started yesterday..Kimmy and I started brain storming after the one I purchased at the show I did 2 weeks ago and wanted to embroider on these..so off we went to get the supplys last week and after she taught me how to do zippers..super easy..feel kind of like an idiot now because they are soooo easy..:) anyway this is what I came up with....They fit right at the hip for easy access..
And it is fully lined..where as the one I purchased is not..I am making and selling these on my selling blog..will post this as soon as I get done with this post..I have so many ideas for these purses with what designs to embroider on to them..would anyone carry a fall/halloween purse, a christmas purse? you know with a theme on them? I have some awesome designs...so your input would be greatly appreciated.
Speaking of Posts..this is my 400th post!!! I started this blog in February of 2008 and it has been so much fun getting to know each and every one of you.. coming into your households and getting to know you..I feel like I know each of you personally..I am still deciding what to do for a giveaway..probably something fall/halloweenish..I will let you know what I decide..
We harvested 2 of our zuchinnis the other night and I have been sauteing them in clarified butter and olive oil with salt and pepper for dinner..it is so much fun to pluck something from the garden and eat it..like having your own produce department at your disposal...We are also dehydrating our herbs as well..the above jar is oregano..the whole garage smells good after we are done..
This is the parsley...we have so many herbs to dry and want to preserve them..no since in going to waste...the parsely took maybe 2 hours is all..and smells so fragrant..better then the store bought stuff..we are getting beans finally..we still have about 10 zuchinni, 6 or so yellow squash..and 4 or so baby pumpkins..that plant has lost its mind too..I could have a garden with just that one plant..we are already deciding to make another garden just for the zuchinni and pumpkins next year...can't wait..if this economy keeps going like it is..we will make our whole yard one huge garden..
This is what I found on monday night...It is getting so hot...HOW HOT IS IT YOU ASK? yesterday was about 92 and today is supposed to be 99..wholy crap!!! that is hot..we here in the pacific northwest like our 75 degree weather with a light breeze...so needless to say both window a/c units will be in full force the next couple of days..we are truly in our heat wave this week..just standing in the shade you start to sweat..I hate sweating when I am doing nothing..anyway here is sunny sitting on the counter and silly Millie in the sink...it is nice and cool..oh and Pody ann hoped in the tub...silly kitties..They will hang out in the rooms with the a/c's today..Tucker is hiding under the porch in the cool dirt..gotta make sure he has plenty of water and water the plants as well..Not much else to report on..I hope you all are well and safe and cool...
On another note...I am leaving my WSOAPP site as nothing of mine has sold since december..no since in throwing money down the drain..so off on my own...It is one less thing to have to deal with as well and I have the 2 shows coming up anyway..and the last one went well..so that is what is going on...may try Etsy after the first of the year when the shows are done..and I will continually put things on my selling blog as well..Have a wonderful hump day..:)
