How to .... Vacation!

Adventures of the Traveling Hens

Yep! I know you missed my regular post last Friday, but I'm sure you won't mind me taking my 83 year old Momma on a road trip to Florida.

I also took my bestie cousin. Carrie is an only child and I'm an only girl so we have been as close as sisters for all our years.

Momma hadn't been to Florida since the late 1950's where she lived in Miami during what she remembers as the golden years. She returned to central-Missouri in 1959 when she was pregnant with me. Of course, I only agreed to take her to Florida if she agreed NOT to come back pregnant! *giggle*

The Hens
On Sunday, March 6, me (on the left), and momma, Jean (center), and my bestie cousin, Carrie, (on the right) packed up the car and headed south.  We stopped at wonderful places along the way. Enjoyed the Florida area for three days. And then quilt shop hopped all the way home. Returning Saturday, March 12.  

What a great trip of memories. Hope you enjoy the pictures I posted below. 

So that's what I was up to last week. Do you have any vacation plans coming up? Share a comment or two below!

Rollin' rollin' rollin', keep those wheels (?) a rollin'!

Fleur-de-lis for you....

Sainte Genevieve, Missouri, is a town settled in the mid-1700's by French Canadians traveling down the rivers from Canada. Did you notice the 'e' on the end of Sainte? That's not a typo. Ste. Genevieve was a woman and patron saint in France living between 422-512 (ish--you know how uncertain old records can be).

When established as a town the fleur de lis was selected to represent Sainte Genevieve. I'm always asked about a fleur de lis product. So....This month, I'm introducing the first two pieces of my new fleur de lis line!

The necklace....     

Click on the pictures and hurry over to my Etsy shop to make your purchase before the first ones get away!

The earrings...

As the line expands, I'll be offering these in several colors. Have a color in mind? Just ask!

Watch for next week's post where I show you "How to ..." (You didn't think I'd tell, did you? Heheee)

Have a blessed week!
