Day by Day

It's cold here today (yuck), and we're expecting some rain/ice tomorrow. Makes staying inside really nice. The flu is making its rounds in Charlotte. I've missed that bullet so far and hope it continues, especially because we get to visit our family (our 2 precious granddaughters) in Santa Monica next week. Can't wait. I know they have grown like weeds since we saw them in November. I'll be sure to take photos and know how terrible grandparents can be about photos!!!

Thanks to Maureen Costello for this new, uplifting Day by Day design. Makes me smile every time I see it. I like the idea of making "it new." Great way to look at every day. Maureen is used to this cold (sorry Maureen) being up in Michigan. I have told her repeatedly that we appreciate her sharing, but she really doesn't have to share this frigid weather (LOL :) Enjoy your week.

After the Super Bowl

After a great Super Bowl party, I felt just like Vicki Schreiner''s fun, happy "Goodnight Lester." Tired but happy, wanting nothing but sleep, precious sleep. We had so much fun with our neighbors - lots of laughs & hoots. Carol was the ONLY one to pick the Steelers to win so she "lost." Every family had reason to smile as they took money home from our "betting pool." Too much food, but husband Bill is happy to have lots to munch on this week. Love the Packers - sad for Christina messing up our National Anthem. Even big stars get "star struck" with 100,000+ in the stadium and millions watching! Enjoy your day....remember it takes fewer muscles to smile, many, many more to frown. Life is too short to frown (and to fret). What's better in life than smiles, joy and happiness. Don't let anyone bring you down on such a wonderful day (even those that try extra hard)!!!

Teresa's wonderful Primtive Folk Art

We are so thrilled with the marvelous new Folk Art collection that Teresa has been developing. This is such a "love" of hers and reconnecting with friends at folk art trade shows is so much fun for her. We all wish her loads of good luck at the Valley Forge show this weekend - we know she will sell out. Here is a new one from her talented hands! ENJOY - and thank you, Teresa, for all of your hard work. Can't wait to see what's coming next. All of our vendors are thrilled with this entire collection!
