Spending this Thanksgiving in a very quaint town in south Alabama called Fairhope. Family roots run deep throughout the town making this place feel like home. Camellia's blooming, kudzu still green, water in the bay reflecting the moon, temperatures in the 70's, spanish moss dripping from HUGE live oaks... it is definitely a southern Thanksgiving!
This guy's house is right around the corner from my mom's.
This is the fountain in front of the pier on the bay!
Hope you are as blessed as I am to be with family on this holiday!!
It is definitely Holiday season!! I absolutely hate the traffic it generates on the streets, but am hoping to generate some traffic in cyber world!! I will be running Holiday Sales starting Friday and going through at least Monday (some items maybe longer).
I am going to bring back expired items at a
significant reduction and put other items on sale throughout the site...
The EWMcCall family is heading in different directions for the Thanksgiving weekend. Will be working frantically next couple of days and hope to relax the rest of the week at my mom's (whom i adore). Here we are on a deserted Orange Beach (pre-condos) many moons ago. So glam!
There is a beautiful love story behind these beautiful neck ruffs…
Once upon a time (actually it was the mid 80’s) Lori met Jack. She fell hard for him. This drummer/saxophonist had stolen her heart. Pledging their troth in 1986, they began a beautiful journey together. Across many miles of travel, they settled in the frozen tundra, or maybe it just felt that way to a southern peach. It was actually the Fox Valley. Many moons came and many moons went. Their hearts were full, but their house was empty.
Then, in 1999, a miracle came along in the form a tiny baby girl. At almost the same time, tragedy hit. A terrible disease attacked Jack’s lungs. They called the family in to say their last goodbyes, but it wasn’t time. Another miracle came. This time in the form of Jack overcoming this dreaded disease. God had given them a miracle of time together. Against all odds, Jack lived his life. He was a loving husband and devoted father and the life of every party. Several years later, another tiny bundle arrived on their doorstep. Overwhelmed with joy, their two beautiful girls began to grow.
Days filled with hope, laughter, friends and family. Their love grew deeper every day. Jack gave of himself to help others almost everyday of his life. In 2008 Jack became very sick. He struggled for every breath. This time when the family said their goodbyes, he stepped over into eternity. He was no longer struggling. He was at peace.
These neck ruffs all began their lives as Jack’s dress shirts. Transformed, they will be worn by his three lovely ladies. Each time they wear these beautiful collars, Jack will be snuggling them. A beautiful reminder of the devoted husband, father and friend.
I would love to make a neck ruff for you from a piece of clothing that once belonged to someone you love.
By way of introduction, we are a close family. I am the mother of four incredible children and am married to a man who is committed, funny and intelligent. This blog is so that you can get to know us and our online boutique. My oldest daughter, Morgan, and I are in this together. We love to create things. Morgan has an incredible eye for fashion. My other daughter, Megan, is involved, but to a lesser extent. She is busy and helps when she can. My two sons, Jordan and Judah are awesome. Jordan has a raw natural artistic talent and is pursuing music via guitar. Judah loves all things sports!
I am new to blogging, so we'll see where this goes...
