I love mason jars.
This summer has been filled with so many new and exciting experiences. Our little flower garden has been a huge success. I am thrilled beyond belief and have already starting planning the flower gardens for next year.
We have received so many wonderful comments and compliments on the flowers and just as many on the flower cart. It is the cutest thing I have ever seen, if I do say so myself! The flower cart was designed and built by my talented husband Murray with the help of our son Ryan.

It seems like more and more time is passing between my posts on the blog!! April and May have been extremely busy months for the sisters. We are preparing for Britney (Carla’s daughter) and Justin’s wedding on June 7. On April 27 we had Britney’s bridal shower at my house. A great time was had by all. On Saturday, May 3, SistersCg loaded Kathi’s truck and Carla’s car and headed for the Six Chics Spring Market in Clinton, IL. Hope you enjoy the pictures of some of our wares!!!Read More »
It has been a very exciting year for SistersCg. My sisters and I are having a wonderful time attending craft shows, designing and creating new items, learning the ins and outs of a small business, and discovering just how creative we are. We hosted our first annual Holiday Open House at my home and were delighted at the number of family and friends who attended. Thanks to Deb from Rubbish to Rubies for her stunning metalwork items, Jenny for her lovely knit items, and Jaime for her beautiful jewelry for joining us. We had a great time decorating the entire house, creating a festive and holiday setting for the open house.Read More »
I am so delighted that the first event held in my renovated basement was indeed a very special celebration – a vintage baby shower hosted by my sisters for our nephew, Brent, and his wife, Angel. And I am thrilled to report that baby Sailor has arrived. Everyone is happy, healthy, and my sister Carla is loving her role as doting grandma!
So a little bit about the basket shown in this picture. I took a plain basket and added burlap roses around the brim. How simple is that! Burlap roses are super easy to make and so inexpensive.Read More »
I have always loved stand alone kitchen cabinets and hutches – especially the Hoosier cabinet. Although my cabinet is not a Hoosier cabinet, it is truly a unique piece of furniture. I discovered it at a wonderful shop, Main Street Mercantile. Check them out at mainstreetmerc.com.Read More »
