Well, Well, Well.....


What a whirlwind of  almost 24 months its been here in East TN. I'm so sorry I've been off the radar.

There is so much to report, I'm not sure where to start. First, I had to deal with the worst life event we face; I lost my mother on April 5th, 2012, such a deep sadness,  I've had to learn to live a new way with a hole in my heart. RIP, Mommy, I miss you and love you each &and every day!

 Secondly and on a much happier note, our daughter gave birth to our 5th grandchild. A bouncing baby girl, born last June. Our daughter had a serious infection 3 years ago, so serious, we almost lost her. After a life saving surgery, she fully recovered after 5 months, but was told she could not have any more children, or be able to carry a baby to full term. Well, she's a miracle, because Terri did indeed get pregnant and she did indeed carry Lula to full term. Truly a miracle ♥

AI have all kinds of new ideas popping from my head. Today I'm working on a new project,  something completely outta the box for the Foothills...be sure to stay tuned!

I'll try to be on top on my blog now that life is getting back to some kind of new normal for us. One thing is certain in this life and that is change. It comes when we least expect it. Stand tall, don't fret and never, ever give up!!  
                                Greetings from the Foothills!!! Fall is upon us and it's just beautiful here!!

This is a test post of sorts, since Blogger changed the format, I wanted to make sure I could still get my posts up with no issues. YAY!!

With that being said, I'm offering my wares on Olde Primitive Peddler, starting the 15th of this month and every month thereafter. Please keep in mind, I still offer my wares on Simply Primitives on the 15th of the month update as well.. Christmas is coming and my Feather Tree candles are being offered early for your consideration.

Peace & Love, my friends!

Welcome Summer of 2011....

Oh my goodness, just where does the time go? I can not believe its been almost a year since I've posted. I certainly hope everyone has had a good year so far, ours has been trying to say the least and I know there are so many out there feeling the same pressures as we have been, hang tough, tie another knot in your rope and hold on, it will get better!! The one thing I have in great abundance is faith and hope and wonderful friends...without those 3 things, I'm not sure we'd be as happy as we are today looking back on the rough year we had. Whew!!

I have a lot of good news to announce, I'd like to compress last year into a nut shell for those who are curious as to why we just disappeared here in the foothills...Our daughter became deathly ill last Sept and underwent a horrific surgery which in turn saved her life, but it was a long and at times very hard recovery. That and"other" life experiences kept us on our toes for most of 2010; job losses and health issues here at home have kept us occupied to say the least. Now it's onward & upward!!!

I'm excited to announce that I was asked to offer my handmades on a new online selling venue, please be sure to stop by The Olde Primitive Peddler and have a peek at the offerings, you won't be disappointed...while you're there, be sure to sign up for the great give aways that are being offered during our Grand Opening!!! You can find my new offerings the 15th of every month...

I'll be working on some wool offerings and maybe a few early Halloween goodies too...be sure to check back often as I'll be working my fingers to the bone here in my tiny studio tucked deep into the foothills...

Blessed Be...
