The Art of Living
Praying for all of our veterans who have served our nation and have sacrificed more than I can ever imagine. Peace to all. XOXO
Learning is growing. If you aren't taking time for yourself to learn, you can be putting yourself at risk for idleness.
It takes commitment ... XOXO
"Turkeys were plentiful in England before 1550, having made their way to Europe on Spanish ships transporting them from Mexico. Therefore, British colonists were already in possession of recipes for turkey before they landed in the New World, where they would find flocks of up to 5,000 wild turkeys gathered by certain rivers, making a veritable feast for starving émigrés. In addition to boiling, frying, and baking them, roasting was one of the most common means of preparing turkey in colonial times. Amelia Simmons’ recipe in American Cookery calls for stuffing the bird with bread stuffing, roasting, and basting it. In what may have set the precedent for the modern Thanksgiving, she instructs the cook to serve the turkey with “cramberry-sauce” and mashed potatoes."

We are showing our gratitude by giving you our brand new "Rug-hooker's Friend Hand Balm" with every order we receive in November through the end of December.
Also, consider joining us from January-March 2017 for an online rug-hooking class that addresses how to hook a rug so it looks like an antique; including a nearly monochromatic color scheme. You can purchase the workshop here. Everything is included and you can come as you are whenever the time suits you.
There is much about the art of living and treating one another with consideration, respect, and kindness. Generosity is an added art to how we need to live out lives.
We are here for a short time leaving behind our legacy and how people remember us. And we also leave behind our rugs that we spent a lifetime hooking.
Some new kits are in our shoppe; see if there is one that you wish to heirloom to a loved one.
The Art of Living is ...
Inspiration from nature's beauty, simple living, love, and peace.
