I am so tired tonight!

Imagine I have posted a inspiring yellow or orange picture. Now you are so inspired you are going into your craft room/studio and create great and beautiful things.

Look into the color wheel and feel relaxed and a tranquil feeling falls over you and you are getting sleepy. your eyes are getting heavy and now you will go to sleep. Me too! Good Night my friends.

Monday- Week of color
As I start off the week
with the color white
I found several pictures that have inspired me.
These blank sock monkeys look so fun.
The sky is the limit.
I could be so inspired if I had these...

This picture of one of the small cedar trees at the cabin
we stayed in a few weeks ago in the Mountains.
I am so relaxed looking at this picture and just a little cold too.

And last but not least I see this as a challenge.
I can't wait to get back to the shop where all my goodies are and create.
I love the different colors of white and off white lace and the buttons too.
Tomorrow we will explore the blues.
Happy Monday

Our Trip to the Mountains was breathtaking.
We had snow when we got there and more came soon after.
We did make it to caves cove and took a lot of deer pictures, snow pictures and icicles pics.
It was truly a winter wonderland.
I was hoping to be snowed in for a few days, Just me and my hubby. And I did get one more day.
We could have come home, our roads were okay, but Alabama wasn't.
So we stayed at the cabin , in front of the fire with the biggest marshmallows, I have ever seen,

When I got home, I compared.
See Picture...
So back to the real world,
back to work now.
Seems like a lifetime ago now.
Put I do have many many pictures to remember our trip.
Stay tuned...

Coffee & Cupcakes
5 Year Birthday Celebration
Last night we had a celebration.
The shop has been open 5 years.
I could not believe the people that came by to support me.
A lot of church family, friends, customer and just people off the street.
I am so blessed!
As you may know I was in a business with my mom many years ago, which ended.
It was difficult.
But this is different.
When I started this, I prayed and ask God to help, to show me if this venture was the right thing to do.
And as I went about getting insurance, power, and all things you need before opening a business, it seemed to just fall into place.
I look forward ( most days) to going to the shop.
I enjoy the auctions, estate sales, yard sales and thrift stores.
And Hubby does too.
The people, customer, many have became friend.
I look forward to seeing them, talking to them.
So THANK YOU for 5 great years!
And Don the donuts didn't cure my back pain, but it helped.

Obsession-the idea, image, desire, feeling, etc., itself.
That is just it...
the idea of living in this house makes me happy.
The image in my head of Christmas in this house makes me happy. Actually I dreamed of how I would decorate this house before and after Christmas.
The desire of living in this house makes me all excited.
The feeling moving into a new/ old house is an adventure I want to take.
If hubby would only join me.
I think he would if there was enough $ to do it.
But our house pays off in a couple of years.
We want to be mortgage free.
It is a beautiful house in the snow.
When a friend called the realtor and made an appointment, I was excited to go with her.
It is across the street from the shop and I panic when the realtor shows it.
It was built in 1940, and has the original bathroom, which is actually in good shape.
I would redo the kitchen.
New cabinets,
and flooring.
It has 3 bedrooms, 3 fireplaces, original wood floors, basement/cellar.
I am in love!

Day 10- my last day!

One Confession......just one?


I have been having these feelings.

I need something to love and take care of.

I want him!

I want a Yorkie!

Terry is in hopes I will get over this feeling.

But he has been supportive.

And tried to reason with me.

Why do we get these feelings.

I really never had this feeling for a baby.

I wanted to give Terry a baby, but I was done with Jessica.

Would you call this feeling, my biological clock?

At 50?
