My Casa Bella







-Thomas Osbourne Davis

Welcome To My Casa Bella

My Casa Bella- means-my beautiful home- but it can mean so many other things. How you make your home a home. The sounds of children or pets playing. The aroma of scones in the oven or a lilac candle burning. The flowers blooming in your garden. The home grown vegetables ready to be picked. Grandma's quilt at the foot of the bed. A fire to curl up to with a good book. Or just a family spending time together with love, laughter and a good time.

Women To Women Event

Last night my friend Valerie and I set up a table at an event in Greencastle, PA called Women to Women, for those women entrepreneurs out there. There were so many there and we had such a good turn out. The event was two hours only, and I sold three I was happy. Valerie makes beautiful paper products, I'll have to take pictures of them and post them. She uses old vintage cards and makes gift tags, bookmarks, and plaques with them. They're so pretty. So, we had a good time. Look forward to the next event.

Gotta Love Pink and Polka Dots

Who doesn't love Pink and Polka Dots??? This darling set up at The Vintage Attic has beautiful pieces of furniture. This one would look beautiful in a little girls room, little girls love to feel like princesses. You'll need to stop by and visit The Vintage Attic in Downtown Waynesboro, PA and check out their furniture, candles, home decor, etc. I think its one of the nicest stores in town.

Lazy Sunday

So today is a lazy day, although the sun is shining, its cold and I'm having one of those days, even my kitty's agree, besides, they do work hard all day. Play, eat, sleep, play, eat, sleep, need petting every so often, its exhausting work, but somebody's got to do it.
I love my cats, they are our kids and they are lovingly spoiled. On the left is Kahlua, my big muscle man, he's all muscle and walks like a Sumo Wrestler. In the middle is Timmy, my gray tabby that we got over 8 years ago at PetSmart. I fell in love with him. On the right is Latte, my shy girl. But don't let that fool you, she is feisty especially with her blood brother Kahlua. She'll be sitting there looking pretty and cute, then in a second she's hissing and slapping her big brother around. But she is my girl, and the sweetest thing. So on these lazy Sunday's they keep me company and they can make me laugh. They are truly medicine for the soul.

Cabin Fever Craft Show

So my dear friend and I did a craft show called "Cabin Fever Arts and Crafts Show" in the neighboring local town of where I live. It was there first show to have and I am glad we signed on. The title was certainly appropiate, it was the first Saturday in March, and the weather was perfect, it felt like Spring and people were anxious to get out. I personally thought I wouldn't do too well in the small town, but was I surprised!! I did better there than in my last craft show. We had a great time, and several of our friends also had booths. There were alot of people there, and the food was great. I will definitely do it again.

Spring has Sprung!!!

So its finally here, SPRING. Where life is evolving around us now. The flowers, the birds singing. Its amazing what it does to a person, especially after a cold winter. Although we didn't have much when it came to snow, sadly, I always feel, if its going to be this cold then it should at least snow every once in awhile, snow is beautiful as its coming down and when it lands on the trees. But that's ok, spring is here and I am so excited. I did alot of yard work on Wednesday, cleaned up all the leaves out of the garden beds, trimmed some plants and rose bushes. Seeing those spring flowers pushing there way through is so exciting. It makes me want to do more work, wether outside, or cleaning up inside, and sewing.
