We have another open house coming up so I thought instead of boring you with this I would show you a couple pics of  "our children" Kyra and Sherman.....What a pair they are and how different from one another they are... 

                             Sherman lays on his back a lot

Old Things

I have a as I call "sickness" for old things and things that are broke like these old dishes. I know a lot of people would throw them away but I love them and think they tell a story. As a matter of fact the plates shown here were tagged with really old tape and told what pieces were used for what. One of them is labeled "Mama's chicken platter" . I find myself thinking about times of long ago and what was used for what. What a simpler but harder life they had.

I know it has been a while since I have been on here so I thought it is time! So busy these days as it seems everyone is. Helping with my mother, my 99 year old grandmother, and just day to day things. Time is flying by don't you think? Almost the end of July already! We are now a part of the Country Neighbors' Tour so we now have 3 open house's a year instead of 2. I have not been "as good" with my shop hours lately but this can't be helped. My family is more important to me  and people know they can call and make an appt. anytime so hope I don't have too many people mad at me. Let's see.... Been working in the gardens and loving this. I find this very relaxing and calming to say the least. I hope everyone is having a good Summer and taking some time to relax and enjoy the simple things.  

    I have finally planted some Sunflowers! Have always wanted some!
    Mom doesn't like her picture taken. I think she is beautiful.
        My wonderful husband and my grandmother.
                                 My grandmother and I
                             We can't forget Sherman and Kyra.

Good Morning

A challenging week so far...Window busted,AC out, and this morning the power went out. As I was taking a shower this morning I was watching the finches on their feeders, had a dove on the top of my cabin looking at me so sweet, and I was admiring my favorite Clematis. My grandmother gave me a piece of this 2 years ago. I so treasure it. With all of this said it is going to be a wonderful day and I know it! Life is good! We are looking forward to our open house this Friday and Saturday and all the nice folks we will see again!
