It's the first day of summer and the longest day of the year...yippee!! I've got lots to do but I just had few pictures to share.  I moved a few things in my sewing room..put up a shelf, I guess so I would have an excuse to display more stuff...I'm the only one who really sees it, but, I do enjoy my stuff! 

A few of my what-me-nots.  The little pink crucifix was my sweet sister-in-law's when she was born in 1942...sadly she passed away in January of this year.  I'll give it to Rory when the time is right. The little sampler, is one I stitched almost 40 years ago.  

My little "art nouveau" collection...for some reason I seem to be drawn to these little, guilded gold or bronze pieces....

.....and jars & jars full of "stuff"...I love old jars with white, rusty lids & love them even more when filled with white buttons..

Then last, but certainly not least, is a hooked rug, hooked by my friend Sue McFall.  It is just gorgeous!  It is an antique adaptation of an antique rug.  Design and wool by Lynn Kossarek of Romeo Michigan.  Lynn has the most beautiful hand dyed wool...all of her colors mesh matter if it a deep purple or a sky blue...all of her wool works together.   

Have a great Monday everyone!!  It's going to be a hot one!
