Ho, Ho, Ho...Hey!


Hey...is it Christmas already!?!
Feels like it with all this cold and snow, doesn't it? 
I have to admit that my front porch looks ridiculous with my fall decor competing with the snow and cold weather. But I'm still not ready to decorate for Christmas. I usually wait until Thanksgiving weekend.

Apparently, some of my relatives have their Christmas trees up. Wow, good for them.
Times sure have changed from when I was a little girl. You did not decorate until right before Christmas. 
A lot of families even waited until Christmas Eve to put up their trees.

 
One of my most vivid memories as a child is of my grandmother decorating for the holidays.
One year, she decided to enter a contest and had to have her outside decor up the first week of December. We lived in a small town and it became the talk of the town that her decor was up so early. I even had 2 snotty girls march up to me at school and started badgering me about my grandmother putting her decorations up so early. LOL! My, how times have changed.

I will admit that not much indoor decor will happen this year.
I've gotten myself into a fun mess. Stripping wallpaper and such. More on that later.
But, I do have my front porch. I can still decorate it for Christmas.
Maybe...after it warms up some and all the snow melts.
Maybe.

Just Dreamin'...


A cold, lazy Saturday calls for pokin' through some shops and doing some dreamin'.
All by myself.  :)
I pushed and shoved my way through a barn. A huge barn. Three stories of barn goodness.


Next, was a cute, little shop with a variety of vendor booths.
I could see myself set up there if I wanted to be in a shop.


Then there was this shop. This shop was for sale.


 Built as a home in 1910.
The merchandise did not catch my attention, but the house did. 
I started looking at it as if I was a potential buyer.

I could easily live in the back of this home which has a new addition on it.
The front had 4 to 5 rooms that could easily be used as my shop.
How great would that be? 

Now this won't be happening due to the timing. 
And that's okay. It's always fun to dream a little.

Here Comes The Sun


Cold. Dreary days. Dark by 6:00 pm.
Not my favorite time of the year.
So where did our wonderful fall season go?
It left us all much too quickly.


I'm like this sunflower. I need the sunshine in order to bloom.
Without it, I'm pretty pathetic. And it's a struggle.
But today...the sun came out!!! So I'm smiling!!!


I miss my sunflower. It was a surprise gift over the summer.
A critter dropped a seed right in the middle of my garden. Center stage.
And it flourished. Better than any that I planted myself as it stood over 7 feet high. 

I have to say that I'm looking forward to nice weather again. And I will be planting more sunflowers.
So, today, I'm wishing you some sunshine and hope you flourish wherever you are planted.
Just like my sunflower.

Show Business


Show business.
I'm not talking Hollywood.
I'm talking about having your own business and you set up at shows for promotion and sales.
So I did this show back in October with my soaps. It was crazy. 


I've decided that doing shows aren't for everyone. And that includes me.
I used to do shows all the time. 
Back in the old days. When I was young. Not so much anymore. LOL!

But because of this show...I had some shops approach me that want to carry my soap.
Wholesale. That I think I can handle.


There are so many ways to do a business. Right now I prefer my online shop.
And my soaps will be added soon. 
Nothing's better than being in the comfort of my own home and making money from something I enjoy doing.
