Saturday Blog Shoppers

Hello everyone out there in Blogville! It's Saturday morning and I'm finally blogging for the Saturday Blog Shoppers super sales! I know I haven't participated in quite a while, but I hope to be able to blog on Saturdays again, and re-join the network.

This Saturday, in addition to the 10% Christmas in July discount, I will take ANOTHER 10% off any purchase made today, from either of my stores, Custom Designs by Nancy and Nancy's Fabric Shop! Choose any piece, perhaps a nice lavendar sachet?

Maybe you need new potholders/trivets?

Or perhaps you're contemplating making pillows to decorate your space, and are looking for just the right material?

Or maybe a spectacular tote bag?

Anything you want, I will refund 20% via paypal, today only! Also, please follow the link to Saturday Blog Shoppers to see other terrific specials for today only.

Last week I drove to Michigan with my sister to celebrate my great-niece's first birthday! Of course, she's the most adorable little girl in the world, as you can see from the pictures I took.

My little brother is now a grandfather, which feels kind of strange. I remember when he had hair down to his shoulders and a full beard. He doesn't have any of that now:

This is the whole family, mommy, daddy and baby:

Since I live in NY and they live in MN this is the first time I have seen the baby, and the whole family, in a long time, so this visit was very special. It was also my brother's 30th wedding anniversary, so here are some shots of everyone. This is my brother's family:

This is my father and mother, and brother and sister:

And of course, my parents are now great-grandparents, which is also wonderful. Here are three generations, skipping the second:

Driving home I got a speeding ticket in Pennsylvania. I mean, you're supposed to go 80 on I80, aren't you? The cop didn't buy it, and wrote it out. Darn. Anyway, I'll leave you with this image, of Madonna and child:

Saturday Blog Shoppers

Ah, Saturday again, another chance to buy something from my store on sale! My shop, and the other Saturday Blogger Shoppers, who are also running their specials. This weekend only take 10% off any piece in this section, including my newest pieces:

This is a table topper made of Sunbrella fabric. Perfect for summer!

These matching table runners are just elegant. The pretty blue and white pattern will dress up any room in your house.

And this is my newest tablecloth, a nice cheery sunny yellow Laura Ashley toile. You can use this in your kitchen breakfast nook, on the dining table, or as a picnic cloth. Let your little girls use it for their tea parties!

Please write SBS in the notes to seller and I will refund your paypal account. Thank you for shopping in my store, and be sure to look at the other Saturday Blog Shoppers by clicking on the link on my sidebar.
