A little Bit About Me

Someplace in Thyme

I have been creating since I was a little girl. I am happy to say that having my own website has opened up a whole new world for me. Trying new mediums is a joy and sometimes a real eye opener. I sell what I create on etsy and my website, someplaceinthyme. If you have questions,please email me at cpeterson72@q.com. I welcome new blog friends and am honored if you find my little piece of heaven interesting enough to follow.

THANKYOU SO MUCH MARILYN!

Some people have lots of luck. They win everything they enter. I am not one of those people. The truth is, I have won only two give a ways since I have been blogging. Notice, that I did not say the "sad" truth is. This is because......LOOK WHAT I JUST RECEIVED IN THE MAIL!!!
I am doing the HAPPY DANCE!!! Right now, I am the luckiest girl on the planet!!!!! THANK YOU so much Marilyn. I was the first winner of Marilyn's give a way on her blog, Our Victorian Cottage. You can visit sweet Marilyn and see what she has been up to HERE. It will be worth every minute, I promise you.

Hand made embroidery and crochet work. I can't begin to describe how beautiful this work is. The above picture is of a gorgeous round doily, you can see all the work that Marilyn put into this.

This piece is a dresser scarf and both have all my favorite colors. Pink two toned, lavender and blue daisies, scroll work and lots of over the top crochet work too. I LOVE THESE and they will be given a place of honor in my home.


I have been down with a cold and tomorrow my two year old grandson has to have a skin graph on two of his fingers due to an injury with the treadmill. This special gift could not have come at a better time. I feel truly blessed.

I know that hand crafted gifts come from the heart and the hand. I will treasure these forever my friend. I thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. Your work is over the top gorgeous and could not be more perfect. You have blessed me.

Hi Char!!! I'm so happy you found my little blog :) I started it about a week or so ago; not very long. Thought since I was following a few blogs, I might as well go ahead and start my own. It will mostly be about things I decorate in my home and such, items I've created for Ebay, and treasures I'm able to find. I'll be following your sweet blog, and checking up to see what all you have to post about :) Warmest, Brenda

I really like your winnings. They are beautifully done. I will say a prayer for your little one. You almost wish that you could be the one in pain instead of them. Grandmothers are like that or at least I am. You Take care and I hope your cold gets better. Your Missouri Friend.
