A cutie pie of a “tiny topiary” set in a piece of vintage Shawnee Pottery
I cannot believe that it has been a whole month since I last posted here! Where on earth is time going anyway????
I made it up to Sharon Springs and had a wonderful time. When I catch my breath, I’ll try to write a post to bring you up to date on all the happenings in the funnest little village you’ll ever visit.
So you know that I’m still kicking, I wanted to drop by with a couple of quick pictures of some of the stuff I’ve been working on. I’m chipping away at the list of orders but it’s going pretty slowly. And I’ve got to get geared up for the Country Living Fair Atlanta in just a few short weeks (yikes!).
I’ll try to come back soon with more. In the meantime, happy Fall!! It’s finally cooling off a little – yay!
Just dropping by to quickly let you know that I am in the process of listing 7 wreaths and 1 topiary centerpiece in my Etsy Shop!
Here’s what you will find there (they will be dribbling in over the next few days – I’ve got 3 of them listed as I write this and am getting ready to add another).

Hi, everyone! I’m just back from the Country Living Fair in NY and am trying to regroup and get some energy back. It was quite a trip – a good one.
But I quickly wanted to share something with you.
I was gobsmacked yesterday when I saw not one but TWO wreaths on Ebay that look like direct rip-offs of mine. First picture is mine (these are not new ones, by the way), 2nd picture is this other person’s. The similarities are just too close to be coincidental as far as I am concerned. What do you think?
This is incredibly disheartening to me since I always expect people to be honorable and honest. I guess I live in a fairy tale world.
No matter how old I get, I feel like a kid on Christmas morning when I wake up to find it is snowing.
And just like every kid, I felt sad when it stopped this afternoon.
The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of a world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found.
