Photo Finish Friday

I was going through old files and found this gem. I posted this photo 9 years ago.
Look at Little Man! How cute. I truly can't believe he used to be this bitty.
He's taller than me now! Awww, I miss loving on this tiny guy.

Need to make these.

I may be falling hard for these tiles. Bath upgrade? Have these in kids bath.

Might be the cutest thing ever.

My new fav clothing company, ORGANIC! Items run small in case you want to order something. Maybe order one size up. FYI. These are my new fav jammies, only $12!

Natural eye candy.

Do you have a long weekend for MLK? We do. Thinking of getting out of town for a bit but have to juggle kid schedules first. We are going to get hit with flurries later this afternoon so maybe some snowshoeing is in order! Have a great one! XOXO--Teresa

South Africa Bags!

Thank you for choosing me as a recipient of one of your bags. I received your email and have replied sending you my details. I encourage one and all to use cloth shoppers and to ditch the plastic that is so harmful to our environment.

Thank you my bags arrived. Everyone is so envious of the spider Bag. I love it.

ANNOUNCING: Green Bag Lady Gualala, CA Chapter!

So excited that longtime reader, Gail, has taken on the task of starting a chapter of Green Bag Lady in Gualala, CA (home of Harmony!). She has started out with these great little bags and has some shopping bags in the works too. Thanks Gail! Welcome aboard the Green Bag Lady Chapter train! :) Teresa

Hello Teresa,

I finally got three bags made, but they're not the standard shopping bags.  They are meant to be used for travel, in place of plastic bags, and are already promised.  I do have one shopping bag cut out, which I hope to complete before the end of the month,  But, these are the first bags I made, and labeled as a Green Bag Lady. 

Thanks for not giving up on me. I have not found anyone to help me make bags, so the volume will be low, for a while. I am very slow. (but determined)

Merry Christmas! 
Gail S. 
Gualala, CA  .  

p.s. These are the type of bags I have always made for UCSF Children's Hospital.  The Child Life program no longer requests these bags, so I will switch to shopping bags, which I hope will be easy, also.

I had to stop on the way home from our cabin to take this. Mother Nature sure is gorgeous up there!
This is adorable.

THIS is awesome. Such great reusing!

Wow, such a great photo! (click to make it bigger) Thanks Harmony!

I want to be this cool when I'm 84.

Way to go CLEMSON! (my alma mater)

A year in pictures.

What's up? Excited to be back here and sharing things with all of you. It's snowing like a son of a gun outside my window right now. I have tennis later (inside of course) and Little Man has a volleyball tournament tomorrow. Meeting with my Bagettes on Sunday. Happy about it all. Have a fabulously relaxing weekend. Come back tomorrow for a fun freebie. :) XOXO--Teresa

So Sweet!

Look at these sweet items that Bagette Margriet sent me all the way from Holland! A super cute Dutch fabric Green Bag Lady bag (will travel with me!) a tape measure bracelet (I'll wear with pride!) and a "wallet" made from an old milk container (super cool upcycle!). I love it all and what a wonderful surprise for her to send to me. And, notice the great label her chapter puts on the outside of the bags they make. THANK YOU Margriet for everything. I have so enjoyed connecting with you! XOXO--Teresa
