I just love having new blog friends stop in at the shop! The other day a sweet young couple came in and she introduced herself at Kelly from Scarecrow Cabin blog. I'd like you to meet her!
Then Friday and Saturday we got the new Judy Condon book (it is fabulous) and the special issue of A Simple Life (just full of wonderful homes and gardens).
Yesterday we had so much fun at our little Lucy's 4th birthday party. She was so excited that her cousin Sydney came (she told me she is her best friend)! They had a ball playing in the new sand box, with princess dolls and styling big sister Abbey's hair. Happy Birthday sweet Lucy!
We had lots of other fun things happen this weekend too! Peggy (Wren In The Willow) came to spend the afternoon with me on Friday, Earlene (Primitive Passion Decorating) stopped in for a visit on Saturday morning, our son-in-law Tony completed the Tough Mudder at Michigan International Speedway on Saturday and we got to have Abbey and Lucy for a "campover" on Friday night. It was a great weekend and now I get two days at home to just sew and get some things ready for the shop. Speaking of the shop, we signed another new vendor to the Harvest At The Mill show from Kentucky! It is growing like crazy. As soon as we get picture trail figured out you will be able to go to for all the show information. Have a wonderful week and we'll talk soon. Until next time...


  1. Well lady I can understand why all your friends want to stop in for a visit...not only is there a fantastic shop to visit but you are a very sweet friend indeed!
    Happy birthday Lucy...what a darling little big girl.
    I can not wait for the Sept. show but very sad that I am not doing it...believe me if I knew my leg would not be hurting I'd commit - saddens me terribly....but I'll be there to shop you can count on it...even if I am on crutches or a walker. lol
    I can not wait for Picturetrail to get up and running...I so want to make my hotel a feeling they will fill up fast.

  2. What a wonderful shop and you are the sweetest friend.....great pictures, Francine.
