The second gift is two adorable hand knitted kitchen hand towels made by Marybeth. My Grandma used to make these so they're very sentimental. They even came with her own label!
Cute birdies and I love the interior trim and pretty ribbons!
I'm going to have this in my sewing room for ages.
It's already catching sewing what nots.
The two adorable kitchen hand towels sans mb label.
Tatum's Skirt - Red, white and blue vintage style skirt with vintage button and pom poms made for the little one's first birthday. She was born a few weeks from the 4th of July.
Rowan's Skirt - A fun Humboldt girly style patchwork skirt. Sarah advised I add the brighter fabrics on the right and the ruffle, glad I did!
Wrapped up and ready to go. I used fabrics from the dresses for ribbons and matched the paper colors to that of the dresses.

I told Justin that I wanted to take his picture. He posed so nicely for me in the reading room! I love how this one came out. Child #1 can't sit this still.
Books, glorious books
One of my favorite views in the house. Sitting in the reading room looking across the hall.
Our Christmas cactus has exploded into bloom.
Hydrangia - Thanks Deanna and Adam!
Antique roses that were here when we moved in
Ron indulged me with some potted plants for the porch.
My cute kitty
What a journey for these three numbers!

The beautiful fuscia was given to us by one of Ron's bosses. It looks great hanging in the holly tree.
A Japanese maple given to us by one of Ron's co workers. The tree on the left was given to us as well, I'm sure what it is exactly. Ron planted them in the front yard.
This is a "Wandering Jew" plant, it's so pretty. We can't figure out who gave it to us, but we love it!
We were given a few gift cards. I got this nice couch cover with the gift for our hand me down love seat that was in desperate need of a make over. It matches our leather couch well.
This wasn't a gift. I just wanted to show you the gorgeous purple Rhododendron blooming in our front yard!
