~ SNOW!!!!! ~

Snow Snow Glorious SNOW!!!!!....did you know that I love snow?? haha!....we had a wonderful snow day mix, no sleet, no freezing rain, ALL SNOW and powdery snow at that!! We got at least a foot and it's just FABULOUS!! Here I am holding some of the magical stuff!The sun is shining so brightly today I'm afraid it's going to melt too fast!....I cleared a path on the walkway to the front door so the mail lady can bring me my packages!The snow is so light and fluffy it's like pushing cotton balls! Husband let son put his "new" car in the garage because he didn't want to risk scratching it when he goes to scraping the snow off, LOL....he was anxious to see if he could get his car out.Have I told you before that I LOVE WINTER?? weeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!

~ Busy Adding New ~

I have been very busy receiving new wares for my shoppe and wanted to share with you a few of my favorites so far!

The over-the-door hook candle holder is probably my favorite:I think this mason jar candle holder is really cool too:This little potted boxwood is just too cute:
There's still quite a bit more new on the way too so I'll be keeping busy!

Today I went to Target and bought the Michael Jackson DVD "This Is It"....can't wait to watch it! American Idol is on tonight so not sure if there's time this evening though. Also picked up the free 3D glasses Target is giving out for the Grammys....have you heard about the upcoming Grammy show where there will be a special 3D presentation of MJ's Earth Song?....IMO that is one of the best songs and best videos EVER MADE and I am very anxious to see the special presentation of it!

Also looking VERY forward to this weekend because it's supposed to SNOW YIPEEEE!!!!!!!!!!

~ $1 plus postage ~

I am happy to report that I am feeling much better and am working on getting things back to normal around here! I've been slowly getting a few of my Valentine decorations put out in between processing all the new products I've got coming in for my shoppe! While going through my heart stuff I decided to part with something and wondered if anyone here would like to have it? It's a primitive make-do I purchased a couple of years ago and I'm afraid I don't recall who made it but I'm pretty sure I got it off etsy. The base has some issues that I'm sure one of you crafty gals could fix right up but I just don't have the time so I am offering it to the first person who wants it! All you have to do is pay the postage plus a dollar through Paypal. It weighs 14oz. in a Priority Mail box and it'll be anywhere from $4.80 to $5.44 depending upon where you live. The USPS recently changed their postage structure to packages under a pound having different rates now according to the zip code so I will need your zip code. And be sure to let me know if you want it sent insured because that will add $1.75. The dollar I am charging is really just to cover the fees Paypal will take. So if you'd like it just leave me a comment with your email address, your zip code, and if you want insurance, so I can send you a Paypal must be paid right away and I will mail it right away....thanks!

~ American Idol & Doctor Visit ~

pants on the ground pants on the ground lookin' like a fool with yer pants on the ground!! hat turned sideways gold in yer mouth lookin' like a fool with your pants on the ground pants on the ground....OMG was that hilarious or WHAT??!!!!....I got the biggest kick outta that guy!

today I decided that I was sick of being sick so I went to the doctor and I hate going to the doctor! he says I have bronchitis and gave me a prescription for's been awhile since I've taken'd always have to take a pill for ten days but this one you take two the first day then one a day after that for a total of five days which is so much better!....with the longer dosage time, people would often not finish their pills when they started feeling better which led to the misuse of antibiotics so it's good to know they've improved upon that situation.

hopefully the next time I post I will be able to report that I'm feeling well again....have a lovely Friday and a great weekend!

~ Time For A New Post ~

Since it's been over a week since I last posted, I thought I'd better post something! I have been quite sick since Sunday evening....chills, really bad body aches, and chest congestion....not sure what it is but husband has had a cough now for over a week with no other symptoms and I probably got whatever it is he has only worse!
Last week on Wednesday, I drove our youngest son, Michael, to South Carolina to buy a car....he reasoned himself out of the Corvette and decided that a Camaro would be more age appropriate and since they quit making them in 2002 (until this year) he had been on the hunt for a Z28 in good condition, with low mileage, at a good price, and red....well he found the one he wanted at a Chevy dealer in's 6½ hours each way and we spent 5 hours at the dealer so needless to say that was an extremely long and exhausting day and probably is what weakened my defenses....anyhoo....I've got new product coming in for my shoppe and there is just no time to be sick!!

Speaking of which....I wanted to share just one new thing with you here on my's an herb grass candle ring that I just love!....I'm getting some new pillar candles in that I want to use this with but for now I'm showing it with my hog scraper candlestick. There's a limited amount of the rings in stock right now but more are expected next month. At Christmas-time there was a similar item in pine that was so popular that it sold out in minutes and I felt so bad that I didn't have enough to go around....the supplier sent me all that they had but assured me more is coming!

Since being sick, I haven't been able to get around to all my favorite blogs and I know that I'm really missing out....I sure hope I can kick this whatever-it-is soon!!....I enjoyed watching the new season of American Idol begin last evening....I heard that this is going to be Simon's last sure won't be the same!

Until next time....

~ Cool Flax Comb ~

Happy New Year everybody! I hope this new year and this new decade is off to a good start for all.

I wanted to share with you this very unique and awesome item that I purchased a few weeks ago. It's a flax comb made out of hardwood handmade by Art Haber of Old Colony Primitives. What nice folks they are to deal with too!

You can get it made with or without the heart but I adore hearts! I was saving it to place until after I got all of Christmas put away and as soon as I knew where to hang it I just had to show you!

Yep, on the blanket crane! I was wondering where to put it, then the blanket crane dawned on me, and I thought to myself, DUH! this is the perfect place for it, why wasn't this the first place that came to mind? LOL, oh well....I like the way it looks there. It's such a cool thing this flax comb, dontcha think?

Well it certainly is winter here in Virginia but winter in Virginia is a walk in the park compared to just a few hours north of here. It's definately cold enough to snow but the air is bone dry and it's windy today which is one thing I really hate, the wind! All our snow is gone except for the big piles that are left in the parking lots so I am ready for more!

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday and have a great week!
