Beautiful Saturday!!!

Hello all!
I am happy to report that it's a beautiful, sunny day in K-ville! I have spent this morning working on a few orders, but I think I'm going to take a break and run out for a few minutes. It's too nice to stay in all day.


If anyone is remotely interested in any of the books and patterns from the last batch, please make an offer! I have found tons more!


I had a really busy week, but I don't feel like I accomplished a whole lot. I went with my Mom and Dad on Wednesday to Burlington for a minor procedure. I got up at around 4:00 to make sure I was on time. We had to be there by 8:00. It's about 45 minutes to my Mom's and then an hour or so to the clinic where Dad goes to the Dr. It actually went well, but he is still rather uncomfortable today. I almost have to wonder if it wasn't too much for him. We go back on Monday for follow-up. 


I have worked on several new things this week....... and have added a few new things to my Etsy store. I am hoping to update often, so keep checking there
for new things as well as my web site.


Here's a few things you might not have seen....

15 inch Raggedy with stitched face and painted legs....

Lots and lots of room sprays...

Special orders signs....
Small Baby Bunny.....


For anyone interested in wholesale...I have put together a sample Gathering of all kinds of goodies for a special sales price that includes shipping. Email me if you're interested and I'll send you the pictures and info!!!!

Still time to enter this months GIVEAWAY!!

I'll be back soon!

Web Site Special..............

Another beautiful day for us in rain or snow. We actually cooked out on the grill today. Hubby made sirloin kabobs with peppers and onions, one of my favorites. It has been ages since it has been nice enough to be outside cooking.
Hubby was busy today, mainly doing stuff for me....he also worked on my computer almost all day. It has been sick for weeks.  Hopefully, the problem is now resolved. It is no FUN when you can't do what you need to and have to worry about it dying in the middle of something. It seems to be working great this evening! Keeping my fingers crossed!
I worked on a new checkerboard and got it on my web site and piddled around with a few things for orders and some things for Spring. My heart just wasn't in it today, so I made my list for tomorrow and will play catch-up then.
This week's web site special is this wonderful little Prairie Dress!!

Only $7.99 for a limited time!
You can find it here:


This is the checkerboard I made today:

Hope you guys had a great weekend...
Be back soon.

Sunny Saturday.....

I woke up before the worms this morning!! But, now the sun is shining and we're so supposed to have a nice couple of days!! I'm sitting here now listening to the news and they're talking about how it has been SIX weeks since we have had a nice,dry weekend!! They are predicting mid to upper 50's this afternoon!! YIPEE!! Hopefully, I can get out in the garage workshop and work on a few projects!

This morning as I was trying to find something to do (LOL! I have plenty to do, just wasn't really in the mood at 5 am), I was poking around my web site and decided to take a peek at my link exchanges....I haven't paid much attention to them, as of late. Wow! What a shocker!! There are TONS of web sites that I swapped banners with that are no longer in business. I find that to be SO SAD! I worked for a pretty good while and still have lots to remove that are no longer there. If you have a links page, you might want to do the same.
I snapped this the other day as I was making dinner! I had two little helpers! They have grown so much!!
They have pretty much claimed my old hutch as theirs!


When I went to my mailbox on Wednesday...I had a fabulous surprise! Natalie and Kenn from

had sent me these wonderful prim ditty bags!

Two have already found their homes and I'm sure the others will find their place soon.

I love them! Thank you so much!! Please check them out, if you get a chance! They are excellent quality!!


As I was cleaning out some more patterns and things this week...I ran across several that I have decided to part with...prices are marked....

Candle Book is SOLD
Cats, Bunnies and more
Penny Rugs Style

lots of painting...

If you're interested email me:

Just a reminder to all the mailing lists folks....I have extended the offers until Monday! My computer and email were down for almost a whol day and wanted everyone to have the chance to purchase!
If you're not on my web site mailing list, you can sign up here:

or on the front page of my site:

scroll down a ways and there it is...

Well, I'm off to finish up a checkerboard. See ya soon!

Valentine's Day.....

As I sit here on this cold, February day, I am remembering Valentine days over the years. In the beginning, when it was just me and Bill... then later when Amity came along. And then many years later when Cait arrived. I'm trying to remember just how many Valentine Day's we have shared. I'm thinking this is our 34th one together! All the parties, cards, and  dinners are still just as special as the first.
It would be interesting to know how many cards and special Valentine treats I have made over the years. When the girls were in school, it was one of my favorite times to be a part of the Valentine celebration! The little ones were always so cute with their cards and claims of true LOVE.
And now, one of my fondest memories is one of our first together as a married couple....we hardly had money to pay the rent, but on Valentine's Day, here comes Bill with a dozen red roses! At that particular time, you couldn't get roses for less than $50.00 or so. And way back then...$50.00 was a huge amount of money! Needless to say, I was happy and sad at the same time! But then, last year was a special one too! Hubby got me special heart earrings from Kay match the necklace he had gotten me earlier.
But today, after all the holiday celebrations, just being together seems to be enough! I treasure our times with each other. Today, we shared our special breakfast, (as we do most weekends) we have already planned our Valentine dinner of steak, shrimp and fixins. And the best part, Bill is doing most of the cooking!
After trying most of today to make a post, I am sad to report that I am still having a few problems with my computer. Bill has worked on it numerous times and can't pin point the problem. He has found a few things, but nothing major that would cause the problems that I have been having. It takes me forever to do anything. But I keep plugging along.
I have decided to list a few things on Ebay...mainly household items that I have run across while cleaning out my attic, but also a few prim things will be listed as well. Personally, I think it's kinda fun. This is the first of many items that will be going up for auction.

Bidding starts at 99 cents! A great chance to get a web site favorite at a bargain price! Hurry, auction closes soon!

Well, I'm off to update my web site.
Be back soon with pics of what I've been working on...

Special for the week...........

It was much nicer in NC today...sunny and slightly warmer than it has been. We had a little bit of nasty weather on Friday, but it has since cleared up here. I feel so bad for all you folks that have gotten inches and inches of snow!! Personally, I am looking forward to Spring!!! This is the worst Winter we've had in a long time. And we may get more (?) on Tuesday.

GRRRRRRR!!! My computer is STILL acting up!!! Hubby has looked at it a few times and can't seem to find the problem...wanted to get on here real quick for a couple of things.

First of all,

This is the special for the week:

Grungy Star is only $4.50 and it is such a nice size...14 inches tall!
You can find it here:

And lastly, a huge thank you to all that have signed my guestbook,  signed up as followers, left comments and sent emails to enter my monthly giveaway!
