Catching Up!


A friend I met through my blog crocheted this 4 1/2 feet tall witch. Her name is Trixie and she's for sale in Bonnie's space in an antique shop in Roanoke.  Isn't she the cutest witch ever?  I would have a had time parting with her.

I've been working on projects for my shop.  I found this cute dressing table at GW for $10.  It was  mess (wish I had taken a before and after pic), lots of crayon marks, stickers and scotch tape all over it.  I cleaned it and spray painted it with a color that I love and use often (Jade). Getting an oval mirror cut for it was expensive even with me taking a piece of mirror to the glass shop. Lesson learned, don't take on projects with oval mirrors. Square or rectangular cuts are much less expensive.

I also found this lovely Susan Paley vase at GW this week for 2.25. It's rare to find one at GW.  She now has a new home on my mantle with all her relatives.


I had dinner at my daughter's last night and my grandcat, Owen, was lounging in her Halloween decoration that she'll use to store candy in later.  It looks as if  he's thinking about what he wants to his costume to be this year.  


With permission, of course, I'd like to share this beautiful picture of Odin, a corgi friend from Facebook.  

If you've read my blog for a while, you'll remember a few years ago I had to rehome my beautiful fluffy corgi, Arabelle, because of fighting issues.  Well, tonight I am so excited!  Arabelle and her new mom are coming for a visit tomorrow.  It doesn't matter how much time passes between visits, I always feel like she remembers me.  She has a wonderful home and a family who adores her.

I will always love this girl!
