A Spooktacular July offering on Early Work Mercantile tonight!

I know we're a few months off, but I'm feeling a little Halloweenie!!

I have a spooktacular offering and would love to give you a sneak peek. But unfortunately
(for me) my sweet hubs updated my computer and I have no idea how to access my photo program. ACK!!

So I will patiently
(who am I trying to kid) I will impatiently wait for my sweet hubs to get home so he can show me what the heck I have to do to get to my photos. Have I mentioned I do not like change?? True story. I dislike change with my gadgets.

So be sure to stop back later today.

If you love the look of striped grain sacks...

Get your painters tape ready!!

I have an old drop leaf table I'm dying to paint like this. But I'm running out of rooms in this old farmhouse to decorate!
But I'm sure I'll figure something out. ((giggle))

Patience is a virtue...

I am a patient person. I have been all of my life. Except of course when it comes to my computer. Then all h*ll breaks loose. ((giggle))

For years I've been on the lookout for an old, red Jeep Wrangler to buzz around in the summer months. Most are out of my price range.
You all know how cheap frugal I am.
Or the ones that are in my price range are destroyed by rust because of the harsh winters and the salt that is used on the roads here in New York.

I prefer the YJ because of the square headlights instead of the traditional round ones.
I'm such a rebel. ;> )

Well lo and behold, guess what I found??!!!

Where else???.... On Craigslist!!

She was a bit of a hike to get to and I must thank my sweet hubs for driving out to get her. She's not perfect. But neither am I. She needed new "scoots" and a little tweaking.
Don't we all?

I had to give her a name. So when I was on Facebook, I asked everyone to toss out some names. There were lots of good ones. But I settled on the name my sweet hubs suggested. It's perfect for the future plan I have for her!!

Meet... Betsy.

Good Morning!!

I have been getting emails and phone calls from some very dear Facebook friends wondering where I am. I want to let everyone know I am fine. No need to worry.
I thought I could quietly remove myself, but I guess it didn't go as planned.
;> )

You see, I had joined Facebook many years ago but decided to leave. I'm always talking about living simply and how important it is to enjoy nature. Yet I was spending much of my time with technology and quite frankly it was sucking the life out of me. That had to change, so I left.

Then last June my mom passed away. I wanted to get in touch with friends to let them know and Facebook was the best way to do it. So I tried to sneak back on for a bit. When I was "found out" I got such a warm and wonderful "welcome back" from some, I promised myself I would stay but only for one year.

Well, it's been one year. I kept my promise and left. I hope you all understand this is a personal decision. I have met so many wonderful people that I hope I can stay in touch with you somehow. Maybe with blogs? I'm guessing blogs aren't as hip and cool as Facebook or Twitter. But I like to blog. So I will stick with what I like... unhip and lame. ((giggle))

So there you have it. I hope this puts some minds at ease.
Thanks to all of you who contacted me with worry and concern. You guys are the best and please keep in touch when you can.

I decided to make...

my own red, white and blue finial base for some Betsy Ross flags.

It didn't come out too bad either if I do say so myself. ((giggle))

Finding the perfect white...

I have finally found a nice shade of white wall paint! YaY!!!

Man, there are like a gazillion shades of white out there to choose from! Either they were too yellow. Too orange. Too pink. Too blue. Too green.

But Behr's Antique White is like an "old" white. Sounds weird, but it's true. It's more neutral with no hint of any color.

Not only did I use it in the keeping room, it's also in the bedroom.

Take a lookieloo for yourself.

This wonderful unity march took place yesterday in Charleston, SC.

Organizers estimate there were as many as 20,000 people who joined in the march in honor of the nine people who were killed inside Emanuel AME Church last week.

Be the light...
