About

Keeping Family Traditions

Growing up in Rural Missouri , I gained fondness for creativity. There were 4-H meetings at the old community building aka Manila School House, a one room schoolhouse my mother attended in her younger years.There were afternoons at my Grandma’s after school spent sewing. Grandma had a real treadle sewing machine. By the weekend, I was watching Mother at her machine creating double-knit polyester stuffed animals from her fabric scraps. Yes, it was the 70’s. At the large family gatherings, I’d chum up to my Great Aunt Zula who taught me the correct way to hold my crochet needle and yarn. Creating items for myself and others became my inheritance. It’s also the richest of blessings.
Learning the ways of being creative has led me to bond with my family & friends by ‘helping them out’ with gifts, fixing the needed article they needed yesterday, and letting them know if their items are worth saving. (Of course we always try to save them!) I also volunteer each year to teach the art of crochet to 4-Her's in this county. Several of the girls have had their items judged to go all the way to the Missouri State Fair for display. I'm so proud!!
We opened our shop to show the world items from our little corner of the world. The items are all handcrafted and genuine with the exception of vintage items . We hope you’ll find something in our shop to give you or someone you care for delight and create a lifelong memory worth keeping.
