I thought I would share this photo with everyone.
It is one of two photos from my CS shoot that wasn't used in the magazine.
I love it.
It's one of my favorites.
I wish Country Sampler could get past the
over decorated homes,
large floral arrangements,
fancy table settings,
and see the beauty of simplicity.

You gotta have friends !

Friends, what would we do without them?
If someone asked me, who's your best friend?
I'd have to answer I have three,
my Mother, my Daughter,
my dear friend Carol.
Let me tell you a little about Carol.
She's 70ish, one heck of a decorator who
loves primitives, flea markets, and chocolate ice cream.
Last Christmas I gave her a poem I wrote and framed
and a pint of chocolate ice cream.
Here's the poem.
Carol's Poem
The flea markets are still,
for in the wind there's a chill.
Snow beneath my feet.
I'm in need of a treat.
Ice cream I say,
And ice cream I'll eat.
Till the snow melts away
on a warm sunny day.
And the flea markets fill,
Oh, what a thrill.
Hot aching feet.
I'm in need of a treat.
Ice cream I say.
And ice cream I'll eat !
A few pictures from Carol's home.

Back at it....

After being closed for two months our shop re-opened March 4th.
It was a great week. I didn't realize how much I missed working the shop
and seeing my customers.....
or should I say my friends.
I got to meet one of my blogging buddies too!
Mary from Gettysburg Homestead came in and it was a joy meeting her,
and I look forward to seeing her again.
I spent the morning out looking for some new treasures for the shop.
It was slim pickens', but I did find a cute red and tan quilt.

Until next time...
