Where is Retreauxgirl??


Retreauxgirl??  What have you been doing??

I overheard my 7 year old daughter talking with my husband this morning 
"Why does mommy get to stay home and watch TV all day?"
That really bothered me. Is that what she really thinks? I guess she sees, me in the morning as I make her breakfast, pick out her clothes, help her get ready, do her hair, pack a lunch, or make sure she has lunch money, wave goodbye as she leaves for school.

I do not turn on the TV. I do however turn the radio up!!
I go into my workroom and create

 I have been working my little fingers numb getting ready for The Barn Sale in Gonzales on Saturday November 5th. 

Trying to figure out what to do with this?

 And this

I love this stuff!!

 A little mass production

 One of two boards full

I'm digging my domino ladies

Oh Yeah and I made a little banner out of burlap and quilt scraps

I still need to glue and sew but it turned out cute........

 "Watch TV all day?"

Later Gators,


  1. Hey Leslie..we met in Texas and stayed at the same B&B. Sometimes I think that is what my friends think too...that I do nothing all day! HUH!Where do they think all this jewelry comes from the little assemblage fairies!

  2. Wow!! Impressed by all your new creations, they are awesome!! Sorry to hear that your little one said that but it's obviously not true! Feel good about you and all the work you do :)
