Amazing Gel candles

I am finally starting to work on my website again. With all the changes in our life this year it has just got pushed to the back burner, Family is the most important thing in my life. Miranda started school in August in her Sophomore year and after just 4 days in school she came down with Mono. This was my first experience with Mono and like nothing I have ever seen, It littlerly wiped out her energy and she was vomiting a lot. The doctor said there are no meds for this just has to run its course and to let her rest as much as she wanted. They set her up to be home schooled so she would not get behind in her classes, She was out for about 5 weeks. Is back to school now but will take months for her energy level to get back to normal.
The weather here is gorgeous today, Is in the 30ies of the morning but getting up in the 70ies of the day and we have snow on the mountain tops.
The great thing about living here in Tenn. is all the Estate sales we have. Watch for some great merchandise to be added to my web site and to Etsy.
This week I came across a lady who does the most amazing gel candles, They fill your kitchen with the aroma of fresh baked cakes and pies. Her work is the best I have come across. We have limited quanties at this time,
I started listing them on the web site today, Be sure you come by and take a look.
Hope you are enjoying the change of the seasons. We will be traveling home to WV this weekend as we have a long weekend from school . Will love traveling through the mountains with all the fall colors.

Pink Saturday Goodies

Pink Saturday is the perfect day to show you some of my latest finds.
One of the things I love about living in Tennessee is there are so many wonderful Estate sales and auctions in our area.
These awesome treasures are from an auction I attended a couple of weeks ago. It is so hard not to spend more than I intended, when at the auction.

This beautiful Victorian design was made in occupied Japan.
I was lucky enough to get two of this wonderful lady . A true Victorian beauty.

All of these pieces will be for sale in the coming days on my website and Etsy. It has been so hard to get back to business on my website with all the changes in our life this year. I plan to have it all back on track by the first of the year. My customers have been so wonderful and understanding.
Be sure you travel over to visit Bev and all the wonderful blog who have joined our party today. Click on the little pink lady on the left and you will be on your way.

Join the fun and Pink Saturday

Good Morning, The fall has arrived here in Tennessee and the mountains are beginning to change. I will share the beautiful colors with you as the month goes along but this week I had the pleasure of attending a decorative painting seminar.
Our local chapter, The rocky top chapter, brought in a professional teacher for us to paint with.
She is Lynn Deptula, from Grand Rapids Michigan. The class was wonderful, We spent two day with her at a beautiful little church in Wears Valley.

There were app. 15 ladies each day.

These are the two projects I painted. As most of you know I have been painting for about 30 years and I love it.

You can visit Lynne at her website if you are a painter or you just want to see some beautiful merchandise.
Hope you enjoy you tour of all the beautiful blogs who have joined us today. Just click on the little pink lady on the left and you will vist our host Beverly and be on your way.
Have a wonderful week.
