All You Need Is Love (And A Good Friend)

A couple of years ago, I found a blog written by a girl from Virginia.  It was during a time in my life when I was searching for a better life, a simpler life. I was fed up with commercialism and wastefulness and I just didn't want to be a part of that world anymore.  I found her blog and I started reading it.  I really liked her writing style and the stories she told about her life in the mountains.  And the fact that she was a Waltons fan was just a plus.  When I was a kid, I wanted to BE a Walton.  I was gonna go up there and marry one of those boys and it didn't matter which one.  I lurked for a while but I soon started feeling guilty, like I was spying on her and her life, so I started leaving comments, just to let her know I was there.  And now we're buddies! I followed her through a rough but happy time in her life, losing her job and having her baby (who I have to say is THE cutest little thing you ever saw!).  To make extra money, she started an Etsy store and she makes the coolest things!!  I have a stack of her cloth napkins on my dining room table and everybody who eats at my house uses them. I also bought some and gave them for Christmas presents to my family last year.  We LOVE them.  They are very well made and they hold up to many, many washings and the red ones are great for when you have spaghetti!

She posted a pic the other day on her blog and there was this Beatles tablecloth on her table.  
I had a fit over it, asked her to make me one and she did.  I got it today and here it is on my end table. Thanks, Brandy!!!  You did a great job, it's PERFECT and I'm so happy with it!!!!


  1. Well, you just make me all sniffly! You're too sweet! :-)

  2. Awww, I didn't mean to!! I just wanted the handful of folks who read my blog (ha!) to know about you.

  3. That is so cute! And it is perfect on your table!
