Pat's big 8-0; new PODS; Roam Sweet Home; Miss Gracie; Show and Tell

On the first Saturdays of each month, we celebrate the birthdays of everyone born that month. 

Everyone is invited to doesn't have to be your birthday month to join in on the celebration.  

Yesterday's birthday party was extra special since we were celebrating Pat's 80th.  

She looked ravishing in a new outfit she made.  Her ensemble was complete with the addition of a "Happy Birthday" tiara.  

After blowing out the candles, we all enjoyed a piece (or two) of birthday cake. 

Happy Birthday, Pat!  We love you and wish you many more birthdays.

We were thrilled with the arrival of four new PODS this week:  three table runners and a quilt kit POD.  

Two of the runners use "Roam Sweet Home" prints which we also received this week.  YIPPEE!!!  

The quilt kit uses "Berries" prints while the third runner has Americana prints.

"Roam Sweet Home" by Maywood Studios is adorable.  If you own a vintage camper; would like to own a vintage camper; know someone who has a vintage camper or ever saw a vintage camper, this collection is for you.  

This collection depicts all aspects of vintage camping life.  The two main prints have a lot going on so I probably missed some adorable scenes.  

The backgrounds in the picture below are lime, cream and slate.  I tried to stack them so you can see different parts of this print but still missed some scenes (these prints are a smidge darker in person).  
"Vintage Campers" on slate, cream and lime backgrounds
 These prints have all the stuff it takes to have a fun camping experience:  coolers; lawn chairs; toys, stools, bicycles; pillows and flowers.  
"Essentials" on slate, lime and cream
 "Tossed Campers" are a great addition to this collection.

These are companion prints for this collection.  

This collection would be great as curtains, placemats, hot pads or an apron for the camping person in your life.
