New Friends!

I met a Gal on F.B. we seemed to have a lot in common. I found out we only live a short distance away from each other and used to live in the same town. I guess our paths just never crossed back then.....Strange where life takes us! We may walk by someone today as stranger's and years later our paths cross and we find a new friend! 
Meet Sandy!
I met her in person today! What a great Gal!
We "clicked" Right away.
I can't believe how well we hit it off!
Seemed like we have known each other forever!


We went to The Regional Market in Syracuse, Ny.
It is a Flea Market and in the summer, a Farmer's Market too!
Wowzer's did we get some GREAT GOODES!
We dug through boxes, looked under tables and moved some junk!
But we found treasures but nothing as special as a new friend!!!!
After the Market, I took her to a little shop near my home. It was her first time there!
What fun we had!
Wish you all could have been there too!

Pantry Box Stack!

CRAZY DAY! In between my J.O.B (Virtual Real Estate Assistant), Facebook Selling, Daughter home from school for vacation & Hubby home with the Flu, I did actually accomplish something!
A Stack of Pantry Boxes!

It took a while to keep things moving smoothly today with everything out of whack, but this is where I remembered to start taking pictures.
One of the 6 boxes finished.
All six boxes have been painted, three have been totally aged and ready for labels.
Designed and stained my own labels.
One full stack completed and posted for sale! 
Big difference from start to finish! I think I am satisfied!

Master Bedroom!

For Seven Years I have had  all white Bedclothes and Curtains.
No, not the same ones, LOL!
But all of my sets were white!
Like this......
Well, the rest of my house has been getting some big changes.
So, I thought I needed a drastic change in the Master Chambers too!
I love Family Heirloom Weaver's and recently became a client of theirs 
so I can carry their product line in my Shoppe.
Of Course, My first purchases were for ME! Teeeeheeeeheee
Do you see a difference?
Even the curtains are new!
I made the small Ticking Sawdust Pillow!
I think I like it!

I also got two throws from them.....
One for me to use in my chair
and one for my Blanket crane I purchased from Carol @ Firecrackerkid
and she is having a sale from now til March 20th!

Wrong Era!

I feel as though I was born in the wrong era!
I love my gadgets, think hot water and electricity is the bomb.......
but yearn for a simpler time. I guess we shouldn't say simpler, just more utilitarian than now. It was a hard life but the rewards they reaped were priceless!
I keep trying to re-create what they had and bring it into my tiny little piece of the world!!!!


This is what I worked on today......

They are both for sale on my Mercantile button at the top of this page.
Pattern by Drakestone Primitives, 
but tweaked and changed by Becky@TCN

I love Blogs!

I have been doing a little crafting, some facebooking and a lot of blog hopping today. 
I did squeeze in some cleaning and crafting too!!!
I have found so many wonderful sharing blogs since I started my Blog! 
I just wanted to say thank you to all who enter here!
I appreciate all the comments and visits! 
You all put a smile on my face everyday! 
It may be cold outside, 
the wind is blowing, 
No sunshine in sight........
but a quick look on my blog or a visit to one of yours
makes me feel all warm and sunny inside! 
Thank you all for Living,Loving,Giving,Sharing and Being YOU!


These are the items I worked on today.
A Tut by Amy @ Cottageprims ( She's such a sweetie)
Cotton Batting Rag Balls......


 And a Flour Sack I created myself!
That's all for today,
wishing you all Warms & Sunnies inside & out!!!!!

Sunday Satisfaction!!!!



Wow! What a great day I had!
Woke up this morning full of energy and ready to go!!!!
I started with a pattern by Drakestone Primitives....
NightCap Prairie Bonnet

It called for a lace edging, but I opted for a more simple look.


Then I moved right on to pattern #2 from Drakestone Primitives...
Prairie Bonnet


 Before Staining
 After Staining, Not a big difference in the picture.......
But a big difference in my eyes!
 Looks right at Home with Firecracker Kid's Candle Holder and Peg Rack!!!!
My First attempt at Printing on fabric with freezer paper!
FAILED!!!!!!

Next attempt.....
SUCCESS!!!!!!

Not sure yet what I will do with it!

My Hubby planned a Belated Valentine's Dinner for all of us girls!
Me, My BFF (Andrea), My Oldest Daughter (Sonja) and my Future DIL (Sam)
The Guys had to cook and do all the dishes and the clean-up!
On the menu was Steak, Baked Potato, Salad and Bacon wrapped deep-fried Shrimp
It was AMAZING!!!!
After us girls being on Weight Watcher's for 8 months, What a treat that was!!!!!
It was the best Valentine's Dinner We have ever had!!!!
Sure beats waiting at a restaurant with no reservations!!!!!
I was so proud of them for all the planning!
