I wanted to thank Peaseblossom Studio for adding my Vintage Zero fan to their treasury. What a beautiful layout! I also wanted to thank Dandy Bread And Candy for featuring my retro timer. What a cool blog! Right up my alley. Full of anything and everything vintage. I had so much fun browsing through the posts today.
This morning as I was browsing her tutorials I found this very cool pencil pouch. Very Cute! Her tutorials are fabulous so I wanted to share them! Simple to understand and well detailed. I have used a few of them, one of which is this crocheted basket that she had posted last year. The perfect place to put school papers etc. until you have the time to sort them. Simple even for someone who is fairly new to crochet. I was thinking this would be cute hanging open on a hook on the wall or something. You would probably want to use a sturdier yarn. Maybe nylon cord or hemp twine?
Anyway, better start sewing...only two more weeks until school starts!
I'm in sort of a reflective mood today. Just thinking about the things God's been bringing us through and the things that we're learning along the way...About some of the 'pruning' He has had to do on us which brought pain for a season, but is beginning to yield good fruit in our lives...Just thinking about His patience with His children and how good He is.
"He is jealous for me
Loves like a hurricain, I am the tree
Bending beneath the weight of His wind and mercy
When all of the sudden
I am unaware of these afflictions
Eclipsed by glory
And realize just how beautiful you are
And how great are your affections for me
Oh, how He loves us so
Oh, how He loves us
How He loves us so"

Hello and welcome! I chose to call my blog "A Big Bowl Of Cherries" because day-to-day life for me is much like that; beautiful and sweet with a few pits to sort out now and then. So pull up a chair, get cozy and enjoy a few with me.
FYI: I'm a wife and mom of three who LOVES to create all sorts of things, is addicted to Etsy and adores all things vintage.
We still live a fairly fast-paced life at this point, but my husband and I continue to work towards slowing it down, simplifying and learning how to wisely spend this life we've been given. (Not to mention enjoy it!)
Yep, this life is cherry.
