The Knotty Bag by Marijke Mill
Remember the Knotty Bag I made a while ago? Well, Haute Handbags liked it enough to feature it in their current 2012 Spring Issue...!!! Lucky us.....!
I was completely speechless when I got to see the pages....
The colors are amazing, the photo's great, the model lovely!!! They have outdone themselves again!!!!
I am honored to have been represented in such a fashion.... And it looks even better in their pages than it does when I get to take the amateur photo's.... They are so talented...
Pages 102-104 give a three page spread on the Knotty Bag:
- Lots of great pictures

Temple in London, England
I hope they call me on a mission to the United Kingdom....
...or to the U.K. ....
...or to Great Britain....
...or to England ....
When I was a youth I was able to go on a temple trip to the London Temple (which is really quite a ways outside of London, in town called Newchapel). I have fond memories of that trip and naturally this temple and country have a special place in my heart....
U.K. Flag Dresser
So when I acquired a wonderful old waterfall dresser, I transformed it into a United Kingdom flag-dresser, which I affectionately dubbed "I Hope They Call Me On A Mission To The U.K"
Dedicated to this special country....
Me and my friend Esther
... and ...
.... this dresser is also dedicated to my good friend Esther (whom I grew up with) who actually served her mission in the country of Great Britain...
British Flag Painted on this Fun Dresser
I was going to sell this dresser, but .... I quite like it and think it will look great in my son's room.....
And who knows....
... perhaps he will serve HIS mission in the United Kingdom!
Happy St. Patty's to YOU
Just checking in to wish you a Happy St' Patrick's Day!!!!
My 10 year old asked me, "Why does it say Lucky?"
I told her the Irish story, but then added,
"I think it is because I feel so blessed, and Lucky is a fun way to say Blessed....."
And I do feel very blessed....
A fun family.... Nice sunny weather....
A hard-working hubby who happily hands over the whole paycheck twice a month, so I can keep pluggin' away at silly creative stuff.... And play with the kids....
....And I have so many other blessings.....
I can't count them all....
'Keep Calm and Pinch On'
I borrowed this "Keep Calm and Pinch On" print from Stephanie, the Hands-on Housewife....she was so kind as to design and share it....Thank you!!!!(p.s. Disclaimer of sorts..... Sorry the photo's aren't excellent, I am not really good with indoor photography.... And then all those reflections on the glass and mirrors.... Yow-zi!)
Fun Shamrock Bowl
And this is my favorite St. Patrick's Day Item on Etsy.... from OwlCreekCeramics
