Roaming around Rome...

(In a castle, taking a relaxing break... sitting in a little nook overlooking the Vatican.)

Here's a Little Sneek Peek
from our
Wonderful Trip
to
Rome, Italy

(Driving along the narrow & windy road of the Amalfi Coast...stopped to take in the breathtaking views!)

I'm working on getting all of our pictures labeled.
We took over 800 pictures. So, it's taking me a while to get them all done.
I was hoping to label them day by day, while we were there.
I forgot the camera cable, so my plan didn't workout so well for me!

Stay Tuned : )

I LOVE
this little
Travel Blankie!

I like mixing the

Thinking of making a throw for myself...

Sage Green Skull 'N Crossbone basket.

Guess I must like this fabric!
Aqua is my favorite color
and mixed with the dark brown
it just really catches my eye.

Sage Green SKULL Basket



I LOVE this Skull fabric!
It has crossed my mind to sew a throw for myself,
using this fabric.
Not to mention my cousin "hinted" at a request for one, also. ; )
The Skull & Crossbones also come in, my favorite color,
Aqua & Pink too.

I made this basket for an old friend, from high school.
We were able to get in touch with one another
through Facebook. : )
She is giving this basket to her husband's friend,
who he's known since he was 4.

I always love to hear the stories of who my baskets are for.

If you have a Baby Shower to go to
or
need a Baby Gift
I'd LOVE to make something Special for you!

ROOT BEER BASKET




I created this basket in ONE day! Being away at the California Fighterfighter Olympics for the week, didn't leave me much time to complete this basket.

Two of my girlfriends wanted to go in on a baby shower gift together. The parents-to-be want to be surprised, as to what they're having. So, we had to come up with a theme for a boy or a girl.

What about Brown & White, I suggested. The girls thought it was a perfect fit. So, I created The Beach Barn ~ Root Beer Basket. Brown & White just the same as the Sweet, Fun, & Refreshing Drink! Mmm...Makes me want one! : )

So Cal Diaper Bank & The Beach Barn

I wanted to pass along some information about the So Cal Diaper Bank.

A long time friend of mine passed this info on to me - her friend has started this charity. I wanted to see how I / The Beach Barn would be able to help out too. I contacted her to let her know I would love to donate some of my baby blankets to the babies in need she works with. We are now planning on getting together to visit a shelter and donate the goods! : )

Here is what her charity is all about:

This charity provides diapers to infants and toddlers in need here in my community free of charge. It has not been easy to do this on my own, while raising the two boys, but I believe in this cause and I am very excited and proud of this charity.

Please take a look at my website I created at http://socaldiaperbank.org/

I am truly excited and know how important it is to make a difference in people's lives, especially the innocent who cannot protect themselves. My own children inspire me daily and have definitely had an impact on my drive with my charity. I hope you all can appreciate the site and of course, if you are able to help, feel free to make a donation!

Both myself and the needy children thank you in advance!
