Rosie’s Diner/ Thursday Doors

My typical blogging has been to enter posts over at Norm 2.0 for Thursday Doors. Even though I’m a bit burned out this week with a stack of Christmas orders and am trying to meet deadlines, I’ll still participate. Thankful there are a few extra doors in my stash and so for posterity’s sake, I’ll add a photo here in a few lines. Mainly to say thank you to my aunt who feeds my habit of collecting stuff. Thanks Aunt Maybelle!

New addition to my Salt & Pepper Shaker collection

So the gift from Aunt Maybelle(she has her own tag from so much generosity) this time is a salt and pepper shaker set that happens to present itself with a pair of doors. I was unable to attend our family Christmas party this year due to a terrible stomach virus and dining anywhere outside my own doors at home was out of the question. But I truly appreciate the thought she and my uncle always give to me.

Hope you’ll check back next week as Norm has scheduled our post to be a Year’s Favorite Doors theme. Should be a fun look at 2018 doors.

Southwestern Pettis County/Thursday Doors

The Saturday after Thanksgiving was our final craft show for 2018. I neglected to photograph our booth for the first time in I can’t remember how long. But I definitely have a series of photos from afterwards. I’m sharing these this Thursday Doors. I hope you enjoy the simple beauty of this Missouri landscape of late November. And when you’re finished, I hope you’ll traipse on over to Norm 2.0, read his post where he’ll direct you to the rest of us door-seekers from around the globe. 

D and T Quilt Shop/Thursday Doors

For the record I have 1 cat. 

I have rarely participated in Black Friday. I happen to think it’s a ploy to rob me. But this year was different. I actually called my mother to invite her along. Stop The Press!!

Yes there was some urgency.

Not my photo. Too rainy that day for me to worry with it.

There was a notice in our paper that the owner of this shop had passed away. And they are selling her fabric at a significantly lower price and closing shop. This local business has been a very big blessing in our area. We live an hour in any direction from the nearest big chain fabric store. (Until recently, we acquired a Hobby Lobby) But let’s get real. This was the Ultra fabric stop for serious quilters.

Mom and I decided to check out the bargains and show our support for the family. This must be difficult for them.

Below is my ‘haul’. I am planning some serious sewing this coming year.  

Mom thought the blue floral reminded her of something her own mother would have used for a dress. Can I get an awwwww?!  Miss my grandmother very much! So blessed to still have my momma!

This is a better look at the fat quarters.

Buy 50/ Get 50 free. And they were already reduced. An irresistable deal. Mother and I both succumbed.

A peek at the gallery will show you all the tiny ‘doors’ I found in this treasure trove. I hope you’ll, somehow, identify with this version of Thursday Doors and take time to visit Norm 2.0 for beautiful door posts around the globe.

I was neglectful in mentioning the transportation provided by my eldest daughter. Thank you Rachel for tolerating and enabling your mother and grandmother on this expedition. Love you bunches!!!
