Last Tuesday in June...........

Good morning, Folks! Hope you all having a good week so far. Yesterday, was hot and busy in K-ville. With the daily specials that I have bee running all month, I am very busy for this time of year! And I love it!! It's way too hot outside for me and staying in the house, sewing and painting is just fine with me.

Today, is going to be another busy for me. Lots and lots of sewing to be done. But first, hubby and I are going out to breakfast and by Lowes to pick up a few pieces of wood. It's almost too warm to work out in the garage workshop , but there are peg boards, signs and table servers to be made!!


We're getting down near the end of our daily specials and I know folks are gonna miss it!
This is today's special, brought back by customer requests.....

Small Sheep Pillow

Today Only $4.99!!

busy Saturday...

Whew!! Another super hot day here! I guess it must be hot everywhere....we took a little trip up to Fancy Gap and it was the same there. Maybe not quite as humid....I finally got all Betty's Goodies to her at the Fancy Gap store. If you are anywhere close by, be sure and stop in to see Betty and Dan!! You know I haven't been there in several months and I couldn't believe all the treasures in that store! There is absolutely something for everyone! Old and Young alike!! I can't wait to take my sister up there when she comes to visit next time. I wish I would have taken my camera, so I could share with you all. Next time, for sure!!
Check out their web site :

We made a few stops on the way home to get a few things. There's a wonderful market on the VA-NC line that sells the most wonderful flowers, old-time candies, local honey, pickles, preserves and of course in season fruits and veggies. We also had to make a pit-stop at JoAnn fabrics in Winston-Salem along with a quick stop at Michael's for a few supplies. As we got closer to home, Lowes Hardware was the next stop. While he is on vacation (yet again) Hubby wants to build the kitty's a scratching post. The one they have is a little too short. Jack is so pitiful, he has to lay on his belly to scratch. Bill thought it would be nice to make one about 36 inches tall or so. ( I'm thinking 42 inches, so they have room to grow). But, so far no luck in finding anything for the post. There was one fence post that was round, but it was 96 inches long!! They wouldn't cut it and I definately couldn't with my band saw, we couldn't even get that in my station wagon so............I guess we'll keep looking for something. He's off until July 6th, plenty of time (hopefully) to find something that will work.

I'm leaving the Gracie Doll a little longer as the Daily Special. I'll have something new for the Sunday special as well as the featured items. June is almost over and these daily specials will go back to weekly.........and don't forget there's still time to enter June's Web Site Giveaway!
Think I'll go relax for a few minutes and maybe do a stitchery or two. Hope everyone is having a great weekend so far!
Be back tomorrow!

Friday Special....

Happy HOT Friday to you all!!

Is it hot everywhere like it is here in NC? It IS so hot that the news media and officials are warning people to be careful  and have safe (cool) places set up for activities that have to take place outside. Hopefully, it's supposed to cool off next week a little bit.

This is today's special over at my web site. Sorry it has taken me so long to get posted today. I had a few issues with blogger and signing on. But, for now all is well...

She is only $9.99, but not for long!!!

A few more things that I re-did the other day....
This peg rack was an UGLY plae blue....I ainted it black and then dry brushed burgandy all over. Really nice effect....
Quilt shelf was originally stained.....looks great painted black with maybe just some pieces of homespun or old linens hanging on the bar......

I found this in an antique store in VA. It was brown enamel paint. Sanded it a little and painted it black and think I'll make a little sawdust pillow to lay on top.

Father's Day Sunday.....

Happy Father's Day to all that qualify out there! Bill and I are getting ready to go out for breakfast as we do almost every weekend and later we are going to see my Dad and Mom. My sister will be there with her husband as well. I am making potato salad to take along with something else. Not sure what it's going to be yet.......we are running really late for us today. I could barely get out of bed this morning. ( My lower back is killing me. I can see a trip to the chiropractor in my near future)I spent most of yesterday cleaning out the garage! What a mess it was!! And it was 90+ degrees. There's still some organizing and final sweeping to do, but most of it is done. In between cleaning, I got lots of goodies painted to take to my craft booths. Oh shoot!! I shouldv'e taken before pictures! You won't believe how a few of things turned out with just a coat or two of spray paint!

Saturday Special..........

We're having a very hot Saturday in NC today! This weekend is supposed to be one of the hottest so far. I'm kinda glad I'm working in the house today. Bill needs to mow the grass today, but it's way too hot to do it now.

After going to breakfast this morning, I came home and decided to tackle a project that I have had on my TO DO list for ages. It just keeps getting passed on to the next day. And finally, I said ENOUGH!! Just get it done. I don't have a laundry room in this house, my washer and dryer are in a closet in the hallway. It's not very big, but a lot of "STUFF" seems to accumulate there. I took everything out....pulled out the dryer, even moved the washer by myself!! Cleaned the cob webs, washed the floor and wiped down the walls as much as I could. (This is a soon to be paint project.) I threw out a bag of garbage, put some extra toys in another location and filled a box  with clothes and miscellanous to take to Goodwill. Even made a list of it all and put the stuff in my car to drop off later today! It feels really good to get this accomplished!! As I'm sure it won't be too much longer before my washer/dryer set dies....I have had this set for over 19 years!! Yes, I mean 19 years!!

Today's Special is:

Prim Shelf
Only $4.75 Ea. ~ Only for Today!
You can find it here:


Here's a few other things I have been working on.
Bonnets, board and pillow...
homespun chair pads.....

more bonnets.....

homespun wall pocket.....

sign, crow and flowers......

towel, mouse, Welcome and dough board....

spoon/bowl board.....

even an unfinished table server.....

That's probably enough for now. Have a great Saturday!

It's about time for lunch. Wish I could think of something good....
Talk to y'all soon.
