I am just dropping in to say hello to everyone! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!! I ate way to much, my husband told me Yesterday that he was sick of food.

We don't do the black Friday shopping like most people...I don't like seeing grown people and crowds of people fighting over stuff, it's crazy. So today we are headed out to do some shopping. My daughter is going to a museum and a movie with her best friend so it's a perfect opportunity to shop for her.

I wanted to share this picture I took of my nieces and nephews and my daughter on Thanksgiving. I am printing it off and give to my Dad for Christmas from all of them. (Don't worry....he doesn't get on the Internet so he won't see it)

Oh. before I forget I am having a HUGE sale in the month of December so watch for it!!! :-)

I'm feeling a little NUTTY!

We have a tree in our front yard, his name is Mr. Woody!

He stands tall and with much pride.
When you walk under him, he likes to throw pecans at you.
Although this can be a fun game, he doesn't pick them back up.

Mr. Woody likes to watch us pick them up.......
We have to atleast once a week, he has many more pecans ready to throw!

Even Push Up likes looking for pecans.
Thank you Mr. Woody for the tasty pecans this fall.
I think I will go bake some pecan pies now........! :-)

The Weather Outside is.....

Last week it was thunderstorms and tornado's, this morning it's snow flurries! WHAT?......snow flurries. It's odd for North Carolina to get flurries or snow, it just doesn't snow that much here like it use too. I just wonder if this winter is going to be daughter sure hopes so.

Snow flurries landing on my bench. ( Don't look to close, or you will see my overly faded cushion)

Can you see the snow....? Look hard.

Hope everyone has a GREAT weekend.

Reading can be fun!

From the time my daughter was born we would read to her every night. I am thankful that she loves to read now. So I decided to make a few fabric bookmarks for my Etsy shop. Team them up with a book and give as a gift, they make great stocking stuffer, or just give as a thank you gift to your little one when they do something nice.
(I also still have some pocket pouches, key fobs and bookmarks that are perfect to stick in the stocking!)

Weekend Wrap Up

If there was any weekend I want to see over this weekend would be it!! Friday night I woke up around 2:30 am to hear on the tv they are calling for a tornado to hit in our area. I was freakin' out, I woke up my hubby and we got our daughter up in case we needed to get in the closet. It was raining really hard, and I could hear the wind blowing, and it was lighting and thundering too. On the news they had this map saying we had about 8 minutes to take cover........and then it updated and the tornado made a slight turn to the east north. It hit down 10 minutes from my house. I have never been so scared, my hubby said I was freaky out bad. I remember getting a blanket and sitting down by my bed with my daughter beside me, while hubby watched the news. I felt so sad the next day. The news report some injuries, two deaths and a lot of damage.
You can read more about it here.

Then Saturday afternoon we get a phone call that my brother-in-law's mother passed away. I only met her a few times and she was one of the nicest person. She had cancer for the last couple of months.

Then Saturday night has we were sitting down to eat diner, our lights go out. It's dark, no lights on down the street. So we ate candlelight. After we ate we lit more candles and found our lanterns. We played cards and talked about this weekend. Finally after 2 1/2 hours they fixed the power and we all had lights. It's just been crazy here.

Here are some pics of the tornado that hit down.

Amazing how one home can be destroyed and the one beside it hardly gets any damage.

This one was really damaged.

There was a lot of trees down, you could drive down streets and see the direct path it took.

This barn was damages, and there was wood in the trees!
More stuff in the trees.

The trailer of this big truck was blown over.

Hard to believe this house was a brick house.....!
I hope your weekend was better than mine.

Yellow Star Hunt

So Yesterday I was going thought the Treasury over at Etsy. I love looking through there, it's a great way to come across new shops. As I was going page to page I landed on like page 18 and there was this pretty little yellow/gold star in front of my eyes. The star lets you know that one of your items is in a treasury.

So I would like to send a thank you out to Cthings!! Thank you for including my Bag in your treasury.

Please check her blog out at and then get over to her shop and check it out at

What......Watermelon in November?

Over the summer we had bought watermelon to eat. After eating it, my husband tossed out the seeds and uneaten watermelon. Well, it wasn't long until we had tiny watermelons sprouting at the edge of the field. Since it's getting cold my hubby decided to pick them anyway because they wouldn't do much once it was so cold. They were little and cute. The first one was really good to eat. The other two were light pink and not ready. Atleast we got one that was good.

And I have a bird feeder and feed the birds with sunflower seeds. Can you believe I have tiny sunflowers growing under it.....? It's November. They are little and cute too. I took a picture of them, even with frost on them. It's finally getting cold here.

Have a great weekend everyone!!!

Weekend Wrap Up

Today we got up and remembered that we were to turn our clocks back....hope you did too!!

Shelby has been under the weather since Saturday morning. She woke up with a bad head cold and running a slight fever. She is up and moving around today so I hope she is getting over it. She still sounds stuffy but the fever is going away.
We started re-doing our bathroom. It was painted a moss green and I have for a long time wanted it dark chocolate brown, and have my hubby glaze the cabinets with a black stain. Lucky me, he loves doing stuff like this so we have started the process and once finished I will post pictures. He probably thinks I wanted to do this so I could buy more fabric and make matching curtains........he's probably right.....LOL.

Today I got an email from Etsy seller NickyBeeShop that she included one of my little mini zipper pouches in her treasury!! I was so happy. Please stop by her shop at , she has some really cute stuff for Christmas. I love finding new shops........

Hope everyone has a great Sunday.
