It has been almost a year! Missed you--

My goodness --time flies---seems like faster and faster the older I get.  I have missed blogging, but still struggle with the thought of not having anything new or exciting to say!  I am still doing Primitives and Antiques and Reproductions, and my booth has really begun to pick up.  I have met some wonderful people while doing what I love, and I love what they do!!

The last time I was a sad day as we had just found out that a family member had passed away in the Mining tragedy in WV.  Our niece is really struggling, but I think she has done so well.  She is one strong young woman, and she should be proud of herself.  Please remember these people this week as the Anniversary of the tragedy is April 5th.

I suppose I need to show some pics of things we have been working on....Boy, hope I can remember how to do all of this. 

 Great chimney cabinet...we can make these in any color...well, any of our things!

 These two pieces are great also.  The little cabinet doesn't have a back in this pic, and then it sold before I could get it decorated in my booth and get a pic!  Made alot of the bowl racks in many different colors.

 These two pieces were hard to photograph and they sold before I could decorate and take a pic.  The red one looks like it has legs, but it doesn' is made to sit on a counter or hang and put bowls, plates, pitchers, etc in.
 This is a piece that I LOVED...and was praying that my dear hubby would make me one---and he did...just waiting for it to be finished,s o I can pu it in MY house!  It is adorable!
 And I do not remember how to flip pics...I will work on it though!

I know you have seen this from me--many times in the past.... This is another reminder for ALL of us...
I am from the County in WV where the Mine explosion happened.  We found out late last night that our Niece lost her husband of not even 2 years  We were lucky to see him this past weekend at a family reunion of sorts..    We know many of the families that lost loved ones.  Life is too short not to take time and appreciate those in our lives.  Please say a prayer for all those affected by this.  The weeks and months ahead will be hard....there are many who still await news of their loved one even at this hour....

Please take time to give your loved ones time, love and your heart. 
Enjoy EVERY Moment!

Spring HAS Sprung!..& how about those "EERS?!!

Yes, We are READY, too..aren't we?  South Carolina has been cooler than normal and wetter than normal, BUT we are looking at things to start changing!  ...and hopefully soon!

This is a pic of the Antique Store that  I have a booth in.  Katy-Dids Antiques .  Trying to make some changes  and add some new things.  They are located in downtown Gastonia, NC.
 Yes, spring HAS sprung..but look at the cute Santa that Kathy and Dennis found Saturday!
 I don't have a bunch of Antiques at this time, but this is a cool Pepsi Cooler that I actually used in my home for awhile!  My Dad collected Dr. Pepper -so the Pepsi collided with it!

These are a few more oft he things we have done...actually our son made the bench, 'coffee table'.  Love this gray color.  Well, to tell the truth --he also made the towel shelf too!  We just painted it and added the back to it!  This green is so pretty in person, but didn't show up too well in the pic!

By the way, can everyone share with me the way that you keep your comments CLEAN???  I got some terrible messages that seemed like Spam...not sure how to get rid of it...yucko!

Well, guess we will be headed to WV this weekend.  Speaking of about those 'EERS!!!  The Mountaineers, that is!  I am not a big b-ball watcher, but got excited over my home team being in the Sweet 16!  Now..the Elite 8 !  They will play Duke on Saturday, and I guess we will be cheering them on from HOME (in the mountain state) this time!!!

Happy Easter!  Enjoy EVERY Moment!!!  Celebrate JESUS!!!!!

Hello!!!!!  Wow, Didn't realize how long it has been!  Kind of been in a 'funk' lately..ever been there???
I have been painting some of the things that DH has made for our booth.  This is a pic of a part of our booth.  We are in the process of redoing it again...

This is a piece that we made to be a candle board, but haven't got around to making the candles for made it a unique game board!

This is a 'redo' that I did...and added the eggs for a gathering.  I  fell in LOVE with these large a emu egg or something..really cool!

Another little game these colors!   And then, of course, a smaller egg bowl gathering for your sideboard or.....?

My Bunny friend!  Love him!  And a version of our stools that we make.. this is a porter stool style, which we can make in any color!

Snow--ICE in South Carolina

Hope this finds everyone doing well and enduring the wintertime!  I am having a hard time finding things to talk to you about!  I LOVE reading all of your blogs....and a QUESTION for you....I cannot leave comments on certain is Pickled Pepper Patch and the other is Tomatoe Creek Prims..does anyone have any ideas as to why???...and has this happened to anyone else? 
Made a few decisions lately concerning our booth and what we are going to be doing with it....we have not had a wildly successful year, but have enjoyed what we have are going to keep at it.  I have also contacted a few girls locally with prim stores and we are going to try to make a few things to put in their stores also.  Mom and Frank came through on their way to Florida and I had mom come with me and do an inventory and 'change up' the booth.  She was a BIG help!  We got it all done, but I got to talking and I forgot to take any more pictures than this!  Mom really helped me out by BUYING some things form me for her friends birthday...YEAH!!!!!

They were calling for a big snow storm here for Friday and Saturday, but we got mostly sleet and ice...but it was pretty to walk snow angels or snow men, though...too hard!!!!  Hopefully we will have another snow storm soon....I LOVE snow!

These are some flowers that have started to BLOOM again!  They bloom all year...funny, my friend that bought this for my birthday years ago...thought I would enjoy it for the season, but it just keeps coming back!  Love it!

This is  a pic of part of my backyard.  I thought I might mention that I am wanting to sell this ladder.  I found it in a barn last summer and LOVED it but it is too big for my home...and as I shared before I have my Father in laws old ladders that I decorate with....if you know of anyone interested...let me know!  I can take a better pic if anyone is interested!  Usually, I have a little herb garden in forn of the bench.  It looks so drab in the winter....BUT Spring is closer than it was!  
Has anyone been watching American Pickers????  Love that show!  Sounds like something I would LOVE to do!!!  I am a follower of Olde Tyme Marketplace and she does something very similar and finds the neatest stuff!!!!

Well, everyone have a Great rest of the week...gonna try to get myself out of this 'funk' and start doing some things!

Finished product....server...or whatever you call it!

Remember  the Server or shelf...that I was making for my sis and her hubby for Christmas???  I did a post about it before Christmas.  Well, here it is in her home...just minutes after opening it!  I turned around and she had it in the spot she wanted it for and already had things on it!  I THINK she liked it!...what do you think????


This is my sister, Linda and Craig, her husband.  When we got there, she was babysitting for two of her grandkids while mom and dad did some last minute shopping.  You see, the week before Christmas ...WV was DUMPED on  3 1/2 FEET of snow!  People were stuck in their homes and businesses were closed for several was terrible!  So, everyone was rushing out at the last minute to get stuff done that they normally would have had done the week before..!  The kids are Nolan and Brenton and they had a blast with Gramps and Grammy playing games and reading books and making sugar cookies together! 

Mom liked her little soap holder too....I made one for me, but haven't hung it yet....

Well, I hope everyone is having a good you believe it?  Times flies....ENJOY EVERY MOMENT our God gives us!
