Welcome! I'm Kathleen and I upcycle thrift store finds into new, useful treasures. Check it out-

Just cuz it's new doesn't make it better! Follow along as I treasure hunt in search of cast offs to rescue, add my little brand of TLC, and release back into the world and out of the landfill. Let's talk food, fun, family, and future.

and then I woke up...

So yeah, here we are firmly planted in 2011 and feel like I've been somewhat asleep since before Thanksgiving.
Not that I've been lying around or anything.  There was plenty of  this:

SIGH

So now we're well into February and my goal and To Do List need a good dusting off.  

Today's Best Thing EVA:  No Knead Bread
I'm not kidding, this works and is amazing.  I almost need to eat it all day long it's so good.  

One of the good things about living in St. Louis is that spring comes early.  We even had 80 degree temps last week for a couple of days.  It was crazy and we loved it!  But then the thermometer plummeted back to its normal number and we quickly closed up the windows and resumed the knitting, snuggling up to a movie, and napping routine.  

In the mean time I will continue making those long lists!  Preparing for the new season ahead is a wonderful exercise and although the thoughts of a magical but distant holiday season keep me warm every day, I can't wait to play outside more and dig around in my new garden.

  2. Kathleen, pretty knits, especially the blue green throw(?). And a total surprise to see my dog with one dirty ear in his usual position, but on your sofa, not mine! Johnie (named Johnie Be Good by his first owner - shortened to Johnie by us because "be good" sounds just like "bigotte" which means mustache, to my Portuguese neighbors) is a maltie-poo by birth and a cross between a guard dog and a couch potato by nature. Enjoy your spring.
