Very Sad....

It is a sad week for our family. Our little Dacshund, Bumbee ruptured a disc in her back. Her back legs became paralyzed and surgery was not an option at this point. The vet said she may recover but after keeping her still and nursing her for a week her health deteriorated very quickly. She was in so much pain we felt it was best to put her to sleep at this point.

She was such a special little friend. The perfect pet. We will miss her.

Pumpkins & Chickens

Don't you just love this time of year? The weather is cooler and the gardening chores are winding down. I always say I'm going to plant one of those "Fall" gardens but honestly, I'm pooped! I'm done shoveling dirt and fussing over plants. By the time September comes around I'm ready to kick back and just watch the chickens scratch the ground.
How about you?
Love, Kelly

Some New Bling

Someone said that lighting is the "jewelry" of a room. If that's true, check out my brand new bling! My sweet Poopsie bought this chandelier for my birthday. It's so fabulous and it's not even real crystal. All the parts are acrylic and it's from the Home Depot!
In addition to the new chandelier Poopsie surprised me with these lovely red roses. Oh, Poopsie. I'm just swooning.
Little Baby Grace likes the chandelier, too!

Love, Kelly

Vintage Goodness

This weekend Poopsie and I hit a fabulous estate sale.
The estate had belonged to a physician so there were some wonderful medical items like this scale...

...and this cool doctor's bag.
The basement of the home was stocked with vintage toys and boxes of old books. The books were being poured over by "book people" who seemed kind of grabby and hovering so we steered clear.
Poopsie flew into action and started scooping up the toys and making a pile. And excuse me for venting but what is it about a pile of items at an estate sale that is clearly "sold" that makes people start digging through said pile? It got so bad that Poopsie had to stand guard over the pile! Speaking of annoying behaviors, why do some people, upon entering an estate sale stand in the doorway, frozen like a deer in the headlights with their mouths hanging open, blocking the path for people trying to purchase items and move through said doorway? One more gripe and then I'm done. When attending an estate sale, please don't park your vehicle in the road, blocking all traffic. Park your car legally and then walk the distance required like the rest of us law abiding drivers. Okay. I'm done. Thanks for listening.

All of these items (and more) are now for sale in the shop. This one was lots of work but it's all for you....my wonderful customers. We do the work so you don't have to!

Love, Kelly
