A beautiful day for us today. I have spent the week painting some furniture that I want to sell in a yard and craft sale at the first of the month. Will post some picts. when I get them finished.
Wanted to let you know we are starting a new sale on the web site. Each week, beginning on Mondays we will offer one item at a drastically low sale price. Half price or below. Be sure you take a look as it may be the item you have been looking at. First one is up now.
Hope you all are having a wonderful and blessed week.

Back in my painting studio today for the first time since Dec. Glad to be back to painting, Got to get started on inventory for the fall craft fairs. Always looking for new items. We have been working the Gatlinburg Craftsmen fair for over 20 years. The last two weeks in July and 20 days in October. I'll give you the exact dates as we get nearer to July. Started new project today and will give you a peek when it is finished. The picts. are a little of my booth at the fair last year.
Darrell has doctors app. tomorrow so we are off to Huntington, West Virginia for the day. We drive 100 miles each way to the doctors. We live in a wonderful place but very inconvenient for doctors and shopping. We have learned to live with it. Hope you all are having a blessed day.

These are two of my favorites from my doll collection. They are hand sculpted from clay and each is a one of a kind, I purchased them about 10 years ago in Georgia, They are from the Kropp collection in Hearne Texas, So amazing as you can see every wrinkle and detail. The body is made from an old sewing machine spool. Each one is about 28" tall and came with their own chair. I have now come across this lady since or I would have more of her collection. The black lady is from th Bayou and is named Maddie Mae and the other one is Addie Mae.

This old fashion bleeding heart bush is beside my front steps. I have pink on one side and white on the other. They are so hardy and easy to grow and last quiet a while. Beautiful bloom. Also have a weeping mulberry tree in the front yard that I love. I will get a picture of it when it is full.
I have been working today on a new heart sachet. Will get them pictured tomorrow so I can show you one.
Got some work to do on the web site. Hope you are having a wonderful week.
