I'm back!

After two fairly intensive weeks, I am finally starting to feel somewhat back to normal. It will still be a little while before we know if the surgeries were successful, but for today I am just grateful to have gotten out of bed and back on the treadmill!

To celebrate the little joys of life, such as feeling well enough to do something besides laying in bed mindlessly watching House Hunters (don't get me wrong, I love House Hunters and all, but two weeks of it is a little much), Harvest Moon Hollow is having a sale!

Everything in the shop, excluding special orders, is 20% off.
Simply enter the discount code HEART upon checkout.
Happy Shopping!

Family Valentine Pockets

I am so excited about these!

When we were small, my mother made Valentine Pockets for us! We hung these Valentine Pockets in the beginning of February and throughout the month we would secretly write love notes to each other and tuck them away in the individual pockets. If Mom ever noticed us being especially kind she would write the kindness on a little note and tuck it away in our Valentine Pocket. By February 14th our pockets were bulging!

Just before we had our special Valentine dinner, Mom would pass out our pockets and we would read all the love notes we had received. We always had lovely little family Valentine's Days.

I am now offering these custom Valentine Pockets in the Shop!

Whether you would like one pocket for the whole family, or a pocket for each member - I'm sure you'll enjoy starting your very own Valentine Pocket tradition.

Slowing Down

Things in the Hollow will be slowing down over the next two weeks as I undergo two surgical procedures. My sweet sister is flying in on Sunday to help while I am feeling less then chipper. I honestly don't know how I will be feeling, so I am still hoping to keep up with the blog the best I can, but if I am absent for a week or two, please don't think that I've given up.

See you soon!

P.S. More Valentine Treats will be arriving soon...

Happy New Year!

Every year, after the Christmas decorations are carefully packed away, I am always surprised by how pale my house looks. With all the vibrancy of the rich oranges of fall and the shimmery reds and greens of Christmas tucked neatly away in boxes, I am always left feeling a little blah in the color department.

I was experiencing these familiar feelings this week when I pulled out my table runner that I had quilted this summer.

A smile instantly spread across my face. I had forgotten, with it being in storage the last several months, how very much I loved the cheery colors. My table was no longer feeling so blah, though I wish I could say the same for the rest of my tiny house!

This particular line of fabric, Essence by Sandy Gervais, is difficult to find these days. After much online hunting, I was able to find just enough fabric to make one more table runner. If you are needing a dash of color to bring a smile to your January table, no fear! I am hoping to have this table runner completed soon.

And if you are REALLY looking for a splash of color, be sure to check out our first run of Valentine goodies this very Monday!

Happy New Year!
