August is here

Most of you don't know it but I'm back to work now. 

It seems every year I take off June and July.  Not that it's really planned but I joke about taking off the "J" months. 
For being lazy days of summer, they seem to get filled pretty fast.  I love being with my daughter when she's on summer break (even if I am a part-time taxi driver!)
On vaca!
 And I love being in my garden. 
 It's also a time to recharge mentally and helps me from being burned out. 
Fresh Mojitos help with that mental thing haha!
I do post on instagram (under "rabbithillprimitivesandvintage") and facebook (under "Jenn Tavoletti") almost daily year round if you want to see what I'm up to.
4th of July ~ watching fireworks from the roof top!
 Now it's time to start thinking about those pumpkins!!

New Pumpkin Doll on Early Works Mercantile this month. (she's sold)
Have a lovely day.  xo Jenn

Catching Up

"I can see meadows, deep woods, which the first outburst of buds mists over with an elusive green, cold streams and forgotten springs.  Easter primroses, daffodils with the saffron coloured heart, and violets, violets, violets..."
~Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette
Oh my it truly is spring here.  The violets are just starting to bud out and that is a sure sign winter is gone.

I'm sorry I did not write as soon as I had planned but the day after my update our old lady kitty got sick and passed away.  She had been with us for almost 18 years, it was heartbreaking. 

I was glad for the nice weather afterwards to keep my mind busy raking and weeding in the garden.  Plus I have this little nilly following me everywhere just like a puppy.  We are still working on making her a lap kitty but she loves being with us.  A small blessing...I think we needed her just as much as she needed us.
I hope you all had a wonderful Easter Sunday.  It was a lovely, sunny, perfect day here.  Just like I remember when I was little, walking up to my grandparents house after church with the everything smelling like hyacinths.
Had a wonderful day baking up some lovely Italian goodies with Dino's Uncle, Zio Ugo.
These next few weeks I will be getting ready for the Spring Gathering at 1824 Walker Farmhouse on May 10th.  Making all kinds of little springtime pretties.  This is what I'm working on today ~ bluebirds!
Warmest wishes to you for a beautiful spring!  Happy week to you all.  I promise to return soon.  xo Jenn
Rest in peace our beautiful Hannah Banana. We loved you and will miss you very much. 7/13/1997 - 4/9/2014
