The Kitchen Elf

Hello there everyone.  I am so excited to have the blog up and ready to roll.  A huge thanks goes out to Karen for the beautiful blog design.  If I do say so myself, she did a 'superbulous' job.  I also have a shoppe now, a link to my etsy shop, and an event calendar, but please be patient as this weekend I am hoping to play with it a bit more and learn how to use my new toy:)  At this point, the etsy shop is running and next will be the calendar then the shoppe - it requires the most brain power. 
There are so many things that can get us down or strreessss us out that I wanted this to be a place where you can go to relax and see what is happening in my little world of quilts, stitching, and vintage finds (and an occasional morsel of chocolate.)
My first find to share is this little fella.  Isn't he just the cutest little thing?  My mother-in-law and I went to a huge yard sale (actually 400) at the Portland Expo Center last weekend, and he came home with me.  I have a tree in my bedroom at Christmastime with antique toys etc. around it.  I found a couple other items that are already put in the box with the rest.  This fella is in my kitchen.  I just can't bring myself to put him away.  He may just have to be a little kitchen elf.  I have seen these in green on occasion, but never red.  His little grin just makes me smile.  Alas, it was meant to be.  
This is short and sweet, but I want to look up a date or two and fill in some links so you have more to look at.

  1. Hello!
    What an absolutely gorgeous blog!! I love it and I love the kitchen elf. I do have two of his cousins, the "green elves" somewhere in a storage on the Oregon Coast. :) They were my grandmother's. I believe that some of these elves are worth a pretty penny!
