Happy Saturday everyone! I sure could have slept in today! We went to Soaring Eagle Casino last night (about 100 miles away) to meet brother and sister-in-law to see old George Jones in concert. My hubby has always wanted to see him - so he finally got the chance. Actually, it was better than I had anticipated (I'm not much of an OLD country fan). I'm not much of a gambler either, but I did bet $2.00 in the nickle slots! (Big spender!) Got home about 1:00 a.m., so it was earlier than I thought it would be. Old George is starting to look his age!
Okay, on to the new stuff. This little desk and chairs are handpainted and sealed. Would be adorable for Grandma's house! $49.95 (3 pieces)

Closeup of desk top.
Garden shovel for those gals without green thumbs! $19.95

I'm so excited about this new jewelry we got in. It's made by a local Holly artist (Karri) and she does an excellent job. This is just a sampling, but she does the soldered glass, uses old game pieces (dominos, backgammon, scrabble), bamboo, and broken china. Prices range from $14.95 to $24.95
Okay, Terri DID come in yesterday, but will be back Tuesday with the HUGE load of goodies. Thought I'd share a few things she brought yesterday. This star pinkeeps are so cute. $9.95
Little stockings. One has a ladybug in the top and one has a crow and sunflower. Cute as can be. $16.95 each
BUT - my favorite were these stepping stones. They are handmade in the shape of leaves and all different sizes. Terri has them all the way around one of her gardens and they are so unique!
Prices range from $8.95 to $19.95. See why I love to see her come? She comes up with the best, most unique goodies. We already started planning Halloween yesterday and she has some great ideas springing up from that talented mind! Her husband, Jack, is very talented too and has agreed to help with some other projects we have in mind. HOORAY!!!
I was so happy to see their little Shay come with them yesterday. She had a VERY serious surgery a few weeks ago and it was one of her first trips out. She is 10 years old and so beautiful with this LONG reddish/blond hair. Abbey had come down to have lunch with me yesterday so they finally got to meet and are already planning a day to play. Abbey went home and told her mom all about her new friend.
Well gals, time to open the shop. It's raining here today (so what else is new), but I hope we get lots of people to see all our new goodies.
Have a great Saturday and I hope the sun is shining in your neck of the woods!
Until next time...


  1. Hi Dawn, how fun to go see George Jones...I've seen him many times but not recently and yes he certainly is showing his age.
    I'd like to think I wasn't but guess I am as

    Love your new goodies for the shop - the table set is just too adorable.

    Your check should be arriving today I would hope.
    Loving the flag more and more everyday!

    Gosh I want you to come to the GATHERING IN THE WORST WAY....keep selling kiddo!!!!


  2. Dawn, I so LOVE reading your blog and seeing all the pictures of your treasures at your awesome shop. The sun is shining here in PA and I am hoping that our customers come out and visit us today..I hope you have lots of sales today.
    And thanks for stopping by our blog.
    Would love to have you come and sit on the porch with of these days! Have a wonderful weekend.

  3. Hi Dawn!....your concert/gambling outing sounds like fun!....and you have lots of great goodies again! has been hot and humid here in Central Virginia with thunderstorms that pop up most afternoons which is just typical summer weather here....have a great weekend! Janet

  4. Dawn your new photos look great and I will be sure to tell Kari to check out your blog ( she doesn't go online as much as you and I do!). SOunds like you sure have some great things planned for my favorite time of year... Fall and Halloween!

  5. I've been to Soaring Eagle!! Nice place. Can't remember if I lost or won anything...LOL I guess if I can't remember than I didn't do too well! :) I'm from Bay City but live in PA now and we use to visit my mother every summer and we would take her to SE...she loved it!

  6. I just told Rob you saw ole' George, he rushed over to see the pic and said, "Dang it (well, something close to dang it, anyway!) I wanted to go to that show." Glad you had fun - I'm not a gambler either but I have been to TSE a couple of times.

    If I had room, I'd be buying that table and chairs in about a New York minute -- cute-cute-cute! I love all your other goodies as well. Have a great rest of the weekend, Dawn.

  7. Oh, love the kids desk and chairs!! Cute!

  8. Adorable pendants, Love them! Janna

  9. Oh you got that right - about George looking old and about those tables and chairs being too cute and perfect for a grammy. Thanks for giving me a great idea for the future.

    Have a great weekend. I hope you sell ALL your new stuff!

    hugs, Linda

  10. Hi Dawn,
    That table and chairs is really cute!! And I love the pin-keeps and the stepping are really unique!
    They were calling for rain today, but it all went north of us...which is up your way. Wishing you no rain tomorrow. Have a great Sunday.
    hugs, Cindy

  11. Love the table and chairs! Very cute! Lots of great stuff up there! And can't wait to see what Terri brings in Tuesday!

    Wow...I didn't even know George Jones was still around! My favorite song of his is "He Stopped Loving Her Today". ~~Annie

  12. Oh yes, I had long ago decided I would have little furniture. I want some nice wood pieces like we had at my school. But I never thought to paint them so cute!! That is such a great idea!

    Nothing new here. Angela is very anxious too. She has been walking too. Wonder who will go first!!

    hugs, Linda

  13. Hi Dawn.... I did tell Kari about her stuff on your blog, I'm not sure if she has taken a look yet. I will remind her! I have been working a little on the items for your shop, for the workshop display pieces. I can stop in one morning this week if you want me to, or whenever you wanted me to take a look at what you have to show me. Let me know! C
