~New Etsy Store Items Just Listed~ It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas~

It's Beginning to look alot like Christmas?? Well, in my world it is! lol...I started making Christmas items for my show and the interior store a few weeks ago. Actually...I should have started earlier! I thought I would go ahead and list some Christmas items in my Etsy store now. I know it's a little early, but it will be time to decorate before we know it! I decorate my first house on Nov. 8th! Just a few weeks...I have to start earlier this year due to my busy schedule. =0

Here are some fun Christmas tassels I am making...I listed everything you see here in my Etsy Store. All of these would make great gifts too!






3d Frames...I like using these in my bookcases and kitchen. I will be making all kinds...



Embellished Frames...





Let me know if you have any questions or if you would like something customized!

Hey Guys! First I want to thank you for all of the wonderful comments on my kitchen! Much appreciated!!
I want to tell you about an event I will be participating in very soon. In fact it's just one month from today! Oh MY! It's slipping up on me...It's the NWA Boutique Show. There are over 70 vendors who will be participating in this show. There will be jewelry, clothes, handbags, gourmet gifts, etc. I've never been, but from what I've heard it is awesome!
For the next 4 weeks I will be busy making frames, tassels, wreaths, and arrangements to sell at the show. I also have some other Christmas gift items I ordererd at market. Sooooo....if you live in Arkansas I hope to see you there. And....if you live in California, North Carolina, Louisiana, etc. I expect you to get in your car and drive down (or up) here! LOL!! I wish you could!
Don't worry... I will be listing Etsy store items too...no breaks for me!

~~Heart Of The Home Party~~

Welcome to my kitchen! I am joining the Heart Of The Home Party hosted by Sheila. What a sweet lady! If you have never paid her a visit be sure to go by and say hello.
I know you have all probably seen my little kitchen several times...but I didn't want to miss out on Sheila's party so I thought I would show you a few fall touches I spread around the kitchen tonight.


I decided to make myself a fall frame for this spot.
I set it up on an easle.

I found the little scarecrow in Dallas...isn't he cute?

There he is! One of the newest additions to the kitchen. I just love his cute Polk a dots! He's ready for fall! I can't even count the number of times this arrangement has changed!


I dug out my old pumpkin arrangement from a few years ago and added to it. It looks much better now. I recently purchased the black rooster plates at T.J. Maxx and love them! They look good with Mr. Polk a dot roo.

I found this rug in Dallas too...My other rug had alot of black in it and showed every piece of grass and hair. I don't recommend a black rug in a kitchen. My living room rug has alot of black in it, but we are not in there as much.

This is the BEST smelling candle! I love burning candles in the fall...


Thanks for coming by to see my kitchen!!
(Still thinking about painting this island...but it will have to wait until after Christmas)
Have a great day! New Etsy store items on their way soon...

I'm Back From Dallas And Ready To Work!

Hey guys! I hope you are having a wonderful week! I can't believe it's almost the weekend already! I guess time really does fly by when you're having fun. I returned from Dallas yesterday with lots of goodies. We went to Dallas Market, but also went to Canton, Tx. What a great place! For those of you who have never been...it's a huge craft fair with tons of great stuff. I think it occurs several times a year. My main goal this trip was to find more Christmas and everyday "stuff" for my upcoming show in NW Arkansas. One of my main goals was to find more beautiful ribbon... I think I have enough to last a while now! These are just a few to add to my collection. I think I might have a ribbon hoarding problem... I love beautiful ribbon!

I decided to bring some supplies to Sherry's house so I could make a few things to post in my Etsy store when I returned. Well...she ended up with a few new frames...lol. Here is a scarecrow frame on her island.
This black fleur de lis frame looks beautiful in her living room. Her twin grand kids are adorable!! Her daughter is expecting another baby in just 2 weeks!

We went to a place called Paul Michael's in Canton. They had some great stuff and carry tons of the mesh. They were also making wreaths in the back.You might remember that I made some similar to this one last year. They had some great ideas and I ended up making this one for Sherry. I will be making several wreaths similar to this one for my show in NW Arkansas. I recently posted about my last trip to Dallas and getting to meet Teresa at Grammy Girlfriend. Well, she and her family are having a really hard time right now. Her husband of 37 years had a stroke. He is doing a little better, but is still in the hospital and really needs our prayers. Please say a prayer for Teresa and her family too... what a sweet lady.
I am posting some frames in my Etsy store and will be posting several more items over the weekend. Today I had to get caught up on house chores. Kevin and Chase think they are on vacation when I'm gone! Nothing gets cleaned...

Have a great weekend!
Thank you all for the happy birthday wishes!!
