Pink Saturday 7-31-2010

Hey, I am up and running again. I have missed joining you for pink Saturday. Just haven't been on the puter much this year. Have got back to painting and crafting some in the last few months. Going to share a beautiful tea service I painted and sold in a local shop here in Tenn. I have painted so many of these over the years but they have all been different designs and I love the way they turn out. Hope you enjoy.

There are so many yard sales, estate sales and auctions here and I am in seventh heaven with them all. I love the hunt. Serving dishes are one of my great weakness. So hard to pass one up. This is two sweet designs I found lately. Both are china, One Austria and one Limoges. Aren't they awesome.

Be sure you skip on over to Bevs place and visit all the beautiful blogs who are with us today. Just click on the pink lady on the right. I will be hunting my favorite to post for next week. Thanks for visiting and I will come see you.

Hope you have a blessed and wonderful week. Be sure to let someone know you love them.

Gatlinburg Craftsmen Fair


The Gatlinburg Craftsmen Fair was held in July in Gatlinburg, Tenn. If you have never visited the show, you should really make plans to do so. It has been going on for well over 35 years. Held 10 days in July and 18 days in October. We have been working this show for over 25 years. We did set out last year due to family changes, Wasn't sure I would work it again but as much as I love to paint and Create I had to get back to work. Has been a real challenge getting things to work with moved from West Virginia. We even had one of our storage buildings moved last month. Leaving a 3000 sq. foot home and moving into a 16' wide mobile home has also left me trying to figure out a place to paint. But I have managed. The Next show will open on October 6 at the Gatlinburg Convention Center. Come visit us. This was my booth this year.

I also met a wonderful lady who runs a shabby chic shop in the Dumplin Valley Flea market here in Tenn. Just off of exit 407 on interstate 40. Piegon Forge, Sevierville Exit. She has been in the market for about 14 years and has a beautiful shop. I have been selling with her since the first of the year. If you are visiting the mountains be sure you stop in for a visit.

I am listing again on Etsy, Be sure you take a look at all the new beauties. Have been working on some very beautiful teacup wreath. This is one you will find on Etsy.

Have been away from my blog for so long and with all the changes I have had to take the time to learn again. Thank to a wonderful puter friend Connie for all her help.

Catch you Later.

Time for an Update

Was November 09 that I posted last. With all the changes in our life I have just not been on the puter very much. Our new baby was on the way then. She was born on November 24 and is Morgan Paige Elaine Mullins. Elaine is in honor of my daughter and her aunt. She is now 8 months old and a joy for our life. A life ends and a new one begins. Our grand children have been the saving grace for both Darrell and I over the past year and a half. Not a day passes without my sweet daughter on my mind. Miranda is turning into a beautiful and wonderful young lady. She will be a junior this year. Will share a couple pictures with you.

this one is Morgan at birth and the next one is now, just taken tonight when I baby sit for Mom and Dad to see a movie.

This is Madison the big sister who will be 5 in a few months, and she is a wonderful big sister.

This one is Miranda who will be 17 in a few months. She has had a busy summer and looking forward to school starting in a couple weeks.

Along with all the changes in our life I have decided to sell my website. It now belongs to a local lady here in the Smoky Mountains. I will tell you more about it later. Hope all of you have had a wonderful year so far and I promise to get back in the swing and come visit you and hope you will visit me.
