Wagon Wheel

To us, family means putting your arms around each other and being there.

Funny thing about quotes when they remind you of a family event.

(I just love Barbara Bush by the way)

The thing you see me ‘wrapped up’ in above is a Wagon Wheel throw.


Been working on it for awhile. It’s a totally new pattern and I knew as soon as I got an invitation to that ‘family event’ I mentioned above, I would be bringing it along.


I placed it on the floor and that made it look like a rug. But trust me, it would be a little slippery.


Here are the 2 people it was intended for. My Aunt Glenda and Uncle Don. We gathered to celebrate their 50th Wedding Anniversary at the Lincoln City Hall.



Boy have they been a major influence in my life!! Can’t say enough how grateful I am to them for all the wonderful memories we share. Aunt Glenda knows how to cook Everything! And Uncle Don taught me how to pan for gold. Who could as for more than that?! Here’s to many more years of togetherness and more blessings than you can imagine.


This pic is for Ron’s buddy John Snyder. I’m saving these for your fly fishin’ lures.


Our Booth at Green Ridge

Had a very cool start at the Green Ridge Harvest Fun Fest this year. The turnout was pretty cool too!

Bob & Maybelle had the DARE car in the parade. (Maybelle is my aunt fyi ) This car has been all over the country. Most recently in South Dakota.

Harvest 2013

This is one place we get to spread out our goods to their full extent. Love having that much space for our wares.

Here’s a close-up of the jewelry ….

My favorite sale was this crochet wrap. It has eyelash fringe on the edges.

A father and his son were buying it for his wife. What a nice man!! A good example for his son too!

Next up……..Hughesville, Missouri …..hope we see ya there!

A New Model

The time has come to use a new model.

I needed one that didn’t “grow up”.

That leaves one choice…..

A new doll.

These doll clothes and accessories will make my little girls in daycare very happy!

peach cocoon

As for me, this was my goal.

This model won’t grow out of this garment.

This model is wearing a peach cocoon with matching hat.

Recently there was some debate on how this could appear “Pink” in some instances.

I shot this pic with the Hot Pink plate to demonstrate it’s not really pink.

Just want to say that I haven’t found a blog that allows you to fix Upside Down pictures in its editing yet.

Food for thought.
