Some things I have been working one...finally!!!

Okay and one more fair picture!! This is the last night we went. The kids had a blast and it was well worth then money to see them smile and laugh so much.


Just to prove I haven't been just napping in the sun ALL summer!! I have starting working on more projects for fall and the shoppe where I put my things. I do have this set of candy corn pillow listed on eBay but they will go to the shoppe if they don't sell there. I just haven't had much luck with eBay lately and the shoppe is selling well, so I'm going to try to get more things done for them. These are almost pillow sized. They are 9" tall and 7" wide at the base. I love them and my just have to make myself a set also.



I love...love..love this piece, it is a very old and prim oil can with no handle. The fall flowers and pips look just so awesome in it. I took it to the consignment shoppe and it sold right away...and I don't have more flowers unless I do the road trip thing again.. Maybe this week sometime for school shopping and I'll sneak over to Hobby Lobby for more!


The arrangement is very pretty too, the pictures doesn't really do it justice. I took it to the shoppe also and they said I had my things priced to LOW!!! Well that was good to hear that I'm not overpricing them, but from now on I'll just take the tags and have them help me with what they think I should be asking. I have a hard time pricing things because I can't afford much these days it's hard for me to ask a price I can't pay myself...make sense!!??


I'm so proud of this hutch. It is child's sized and made by my dad. He does pretty amazing work for 75 and not have the best of eyesight anymore. This is one of four he has made so far. He has done two in the old color green and white and now two in the classic old red/white. One is a bright red and white and the other is a more prim cinnamon/red color. They are just adorable. I put them in the shoppe and they have been very popular and I guess they have had people ask if he could make an entire kitchen set!!! I don't know if he is up to that but these hutches are just adorable and I want one for me too!! I'll have to do some sweet talking!!



Speaking of school...my kids have to go back on the 26th. We did do some shopping here yesterday. I don't know if I'm ready for both of them to be gone. Ashley will only be there 1/2 a day.. that is good...break ME in slowly!!! I will miss them, but I think they will be ready once they get to see all their friends again.
I hope the rest of you are having a good summer and thanks for still checking in on me. It has been a trying, year and a fast summer and I'm hanging in there and with all of your encouragement it has really helped a lot!! Thanks for being my friends. Have a great day!!! Hug someone you love!!
