Friendship & Other Fun Stuff…

Happy Mid-November to you…
The weather here in Minnesota has finally turned cold...We have been spoiled by a Gorgeous Autumn…but today reality has set in…
16 degrees this morning…yet the sunrise was still most beautiful!
Today has been one of those days where little things draw my attention away from all I planned to accomplish…
so be it…
at least there is fresh hot bread ready for dinner…

This is one of the many things I have on my work table…a wool crazy quilt pillow…I’m obsessed with these lately. The center image is my Great Grandmother Anna in her garden…I printed it on fabric…
Now the fun of stitching can begin as soon as I have some time to sit in my favorite chair!

Last week I snuck in a visit to one of my favorite places…Hunt & Gather
Treasures always follow me home…this is an autograph album from 1893.
The penmanship is amazing…the sentiments delightful…here are a couple of my favorites…

“When you twine your wreath of friendship,
Fasten in one bud for me.”

“May your friends be added,
Your enemies subtracted,
Joys be multiplied, and
Sorrows divided.

I'll share more another time…Wishing you a wonderful evening ~L


  1. It's always so peaceful to visit your blog. I was feeling very frantic, just now, but reading your post has helped me relax. Thanks! Hugs!

  2. What a lovely old autograph book! Love the sentiments and the writing is always so beautiful from back in the day.... Would love to find an old book like that!

  3. The old autograph book is a wonderful treasure. A lucky and unique find. Thanks for sharing a few of the pages with us.

  4. What a lovely find! Thanks for sharing it with us!

  5. What a wonderful new/old treasure. Such fun!
    Hugs :)

  6. That crazy quilt pillow is going to be wonderful! I need to learn how to print on fabric (and a dozen other things!) Love your new old treasure - I can get lost in a book like that - or a box of old photos - for hours. I do hope you share more pages with us....Wishing you a blessing-filled weekend! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
