100 % Cotton Please

I can’t really remember when I became such a cotton snob.  I think it was right after I had my first kid, when words like “organic” and “all natural” became part of my vocabulary.  I remember that I didn’t want anything that wasn’t 100% cotton to ever touch my babies skin.  I am still that way and that baby is now 9 years old. 

Not that I didn’t try synthetics, who could resist when all those fleece blankets came out that were so cheap and colorful.  But when it came down to it, my kids didn’t even like them all that much, especially the hot blooded one who wound up sweating in a blanket that didn’t “breathe”.  Now the new “minky” fabrics are the big hit, blech!  Polyester!  What could be worse?!

So it’s all cotton for me, nothing like wrapping up in a quilt that has gotten softer with each wash and feels so great against my skin.

Doesn’t this look inviting?


And don’t you love the dog nose pointing out?

The beauty of a small town

We had a great time in Granville.  The historic downtown was converted into a small fair, with live music, rides for the kids and fair food.  The fireworks were in a perfect setting, we really enjoyed the whole day. 

Jeanies house was amazing.  I have never been in a house with a turret.  So very cool. 

The other cool thing, seeing Amy Butler stand in line for fair food, and then again walking back from the fireworks with her friend and her friends daughter- all holding hands.  I tried not to stare.
