Vintage Apron Sewing in Orange

If you are a vintage loving Little Susie Home Maker like me, I would bet that one of the things that you adore is a pretty apron!  An apron can come in so many styles for different purposes. One of my favorites is a half apron. When I am sewing, an apron is one of my favorite projects. Because I can really get creative and make it with either new fabric styles, or with vintage materials, even linens.The decorating can be pretty minimal to elaborate! It really can be very practical or a work of art! The apron I am going to show you today is a combination of both new and vintage fabrics. It is from a vintage style half apron called Bow Tie. I made this cheerful orange with white polka dot half apron for one of my sister's. The waste band has that point in the center of it. Now all you long waisted gals would look great with the point going in an upward direction, but my short waist feels happier folding it downwards. Either way, I think it is very attractive. The fa

Misty Morning Makes Chickens Dance!

 How is your summer going? I woke up to the most beautiful wet day yesterday! So I grabbed my camera and walked outside for some pictures.  It always has made me feel so calm and happy when the fog rolls in.

Then I walked around back to visit my chickens and they were so happy that  they did the Chicken Dance!! Que the music.. Da da da da da da da. Da da da da da da do do do do I tell you I think happiness is contagious!! Have a very happy and blessed day today!! Little Susie Home Maker *added 7/23/2013 P.S.

I have no idea how I did this, but it was on my cell phone which is a Samsung Galaxy S3. Sorry, that I can not how to tell anyone how to do this? :)

Yummy Nachos

Hi everyone! How are you doing?  I thought it would be fun to show you one of my favorite lunches I like to make. It is a plate of warm yummy Nachos! I start by placing chips on the plate, then add refried beans, cooked ground beef, and add cheese.  Then pop it in the microwave to melt cheese. Then I add shredded lettuce, salsa, diced tomatoes. This is ready to eat! I can't wait!  So I put it on the table and then go in the kitchen for some cold drinks! Oh, boy I can't wait to dig in.... What is this?  This looks like it has been devoured!! My two teen age kids are standing there grinning ear to ear with cheese on their lips! "Boy, that sure was good, Mom!!, Thanks!!" Back to the drawing board. Hope you are having a blessed week end.

    In overflowing anger for a moment I hid my face from you, but with everlasting love I will have compassion on you,” says the Lord , your Redeemer. “This is like the days of Noah to me: as I swore that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth, so I have sworn that I will not be angry with you, and will not rebuke you. For the mountains may depart and the hills be removed, but my steadfast love shall not depart from you, and my covenant of peace shall not be removed,” says the Lord , who has compassion on you.
