We went to Walnut Cove today! Man, were they busy!! I saw a commercial for Just Plain Country before 7 am this morning! Maybe a lot of folks saw it, as well. I had a very good day in sales and actually have had a real good month there! Wish they weren't so far away. It's hard to get over there more than a couple times a month.

A beautiful Friday morning! I went for a short walk already and it was soooo nice outside. Almost felt like FALL!

Lot and lots to do today! A few more orders to finish before vacation next week! My web site seems to be doing so well.....I keep thinking that business will just stop, but thankfully so far it hasn't. It takes a lot of work & effort to keep a web site new and fresh. There is always something different to see at mine and I am constantly trying to come up with new goodies.

Still haven't figured out the pattern thing yet, but I will. Just haven't had a lot of time to work on it this week.

Off to get my morning coffee.....

You don't have to have a web site to sign my guestbook! Feel free to just say Hi!!
Been working on orders today, but have started the process for a free pattern. It's gonna take some thought on my part to figure it out. So it may be a few days. But, keep checking as I will get it done.
Thanks, Diane for all your help. I have signed up for the boxnet account, so it won't be long! I have added you as a favorite link!

Today was my shopping day! I have been looking for a "dressy" dress to wear to an awards dinner. I don't "do" dresses very often and when I do, I like bright and happy, not dressy and grown-up! I found a good compromise, if Bill goes along with it.
Early this morning, I started working on some wood pumpkins for wreaths. Yipee! Can't think of anything I want the banner to say though. Maybe, I'll just put HAPPY FALL or FALL BLESSINGS???
Michael's (craft store) was on my To Do list and I found a few things there that I needed. Mainly paint and a few wood candleholders that I use for make-do bases. The $1.00 ones are on clearance for 50 cents. Guess I'll have to be on the look-out for something new to use.
Tomorrow, I have to work on orders, but maybe on Wednesday, more Fall goodies! and pictures!!

Check out my Guestbook!

The Sweetest Saying

I found this on the internet and thought I would share....might do this on a pillow.

A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words.

It's a beautiful Saturday today! A little warm (okay, HOT) for me, but still it's nice outside. Bill and I went to breakfast early this morning because we have so much to get done today. I quickly finished up some orders and dropped them off at the P.O. while he was gone to get the oil changed in his car. We are meeting back here to decide what we need to take on our trip that is approaching faster than I would like to admit.

I hope to finish a few more OOAK items later today. Folks seem to like those the best on my web site. Pictures will be coming soon!!


My friend, Retha is working on a few new things for me as well....Some will be for my store, some will be for the craft booths! I am so excited about what's she doing!!! Hopefully, I can get the new goodies before I leave for vacation.

Thursday already! and I still have sooooo much to do for the week. Looks like another hot day in the neighborhood!
Going to Archdale in a little while to take some special orders. Then, off to get my nails done and a haircut and a little shopping. Dr's appointment at 1:00 and then to Walnut Cove to re-stock booth there!!! Whew! I'm tired just thinking about it.
Well, looks like today is pretty full, so maybe I should run for now!

This is a little harder than I thought it would be. LOL!! I have been busy the past two days trying to get caught up from taking off a few days last week.

Today, it has been trying to rain and finally did around lunchtime. Now it's just hot and humid!

I made some new wreaths today and think they turned out pretty good. One is a special order for a gal herePhotobucket

and the others are just for my web site or Etsy. Photobucket


One day this week, I would like to try the Auction Haus again. ( I really think that we could make a difference with that one! It doesn't cost anything to sell on there....we just need to get the word out that there is some good stuff listed!!!
