I've been seeing the most beautiful garden photos posted on Instagram. It makes me wish I had a green thumb. But sadly...I do not. Wouldn't it be wonderful to stroll through a beautiful garden like the one above everyday? I love seeing those gorgeous photos and even though my thumb isn't green I want to … Continue reading Summer Gardens Bag Club
Wouldn't it be wonderful to be able to travel back in time to 18th century Scotland like Claire did in Outlander? I'm sure life was hard then but I would love to be able to go back just for a while to see what it was like. One of my favorite scenes in Outlander is … Continue reading Lallybroch Knitting Club

It's also the beginning of fall - my favorite season: pumpkin spice lattes, halloween, knit sweaters and boots. What's not to love? In this very first episode of the "No Podcast" Podcast I'm sharing what's on my needles this month. (And if that title confuses you, it's ok. Read this post and it might clear things up.

You see...this isn't my first little bag company. No...I had another. It was called Lillie Laine Bag Co. And while that business served me well for what … Continue reading Happy Birthday
