hello its

July

"A flower doesn't think of competing with the flower next to it. It just blooms."
~Unknown

Hello again! Where did June go? Here I sit writing this a week after the 4th of July. Lydia is home!!! Family we have missed so much were here for the holiday. Dino was on vacation, and we have been having a lovely time. Now I am ready to get back to work!

This month on the blog and Instagram, I will share the garden with a little tour. It's not perfect but always fun to see progress in the little flower and vegetable gardens. They have had me busy watering, weeding, and figuring what bug is eating what plant.
A French country courtyard on a budget is a new addition in a space that was so overgrown.
Daylilies are blooming!
The hydrangeas are amazing!
I picked our first tomato yesterday!
The peach tree is out of this world with peaches. I will be picking and making jam all week.
There is nothing more satisfying than waking up early and getting out there in the garden before the heat of the day happens.

On the weekends we visit the Little Blue Cabin. I have an instagram account created for it called "littlebluecabin_inthewoods"
if you are interested in following along.

The little studio shed has been given a fresh cleaning and reorganized. I will be back to finishing those garden houses that I shared in May, plus some new pieces too. Thank you for your patience in waiting for these. It has been hard for me to concentrate on creating since my dad suddenly passed away in September. As it started to sink in that he was gone, it became harder for me to be alone with my thoughts which sewing often does. I had to step away from here for a bit. I want this to be a happy place for you to visit. Spending time with family, being in the garden, and working on the little cabin has helped. I feel a desire to create and write again.

Always looking for inspiration from the Lord to keep going. I'm so thankful for my faith, and for all of you that visit me with your kindness and friendship, especially when I have no offerings. It means more than you will ever know!

Here's to finding simple joys this month.
Be safe, be well, and always be happy.
