Happy Saturday and What's Been Going on here

Hello all my wonderful blog friends,

It has been a crazy busy last couple of weeks.  I have orders coming in as fast as I get them out..which is GREAT!!!! 

We have been getting ready for winter :( finally have the coop all set, the wood stacked and the yard all picked up.  Now hubby and my son are just waiting for snow so they can ride the new sled LOL.  I could do without it, but it will happen here anyway.

My big news is we adopted a puppy!  Now we have 2 labs, 1 pitbull puppy, 2 cats, and 10 chickens...busy household here.  Here are a couple of pics of the new addition Tib...he really is a sweetheart and we are working very hard to make sure he stays that way.

I also have about 10 new signs that I still have to take pictures of and get posted and we have company coming for Thanksgiving.  Can't wait for Turkey day!

Hope all my friends are safe and happy and wishing you all a wonderful Saturday.

Blessings and hugs,

Been Very Busy

Good Morning all!

It has been busy around here...which is always a good thing, right LOL.  The weather has been cold, but now it looks like we might get a little bit of a Indian Summer coming.

My hubby has been busy making me a couple new pieces that I have been wanting and wanted to share them with you.  This is my new crock bench..I painted it a base coat of Carriage Black and put a top coat of Old Forge Mustard, sanded and antiqued.  He did a wonderful job :)

I also had him make me a Wall Cupboard that turned out just beautiful..I am so happy with it!!  I painted the cupboard with carriage black and a topcoat of Old Barn Red, antiqued and I need to go shopping to fill it up!!

I also took a road trip this weekend with my two sister-in-laws, mother-in-law and our cousin to Woodstock, Vermont.  We had a great time looking at all the antiques and window shopping..I did see a few treasuries that I will have to go back and get.  It was  perfect fall day and the weather was great.

I am going to be having a giveaway here starting on Monday Oct. 26th...come back and see what the giveaway will won't be disappointed.

Don't forgot to check out OFG on Etsy...just type OFG in the search bar to see all the wonderful creations these talented artisians have been doing.  Maybe start some early Christmas shopping :).

Wishing you all a wonderful day and many blessings.

Another Rainy Saturday in the Fall

Good Morning all my blog friends,

Well it's another rainy and chilly fall day here in Upstate NY.  The trees are at peak and I did manage to get a few pictures the other day while the sun was out for a few.  This is the beaver pond on the road I live on.

And here is are a couple of pictures taken from my stencil room looking out into the side yard...the pear tree is over flowing and the chickens are having a great time running around or sleeping there:

I was hoping for more sun this week, but that didn't happen.

Hubby has been busy making me a couple new pieces of furniture..a crock bench and a wall cupboard, I will post pics as soon as they are completed...I just have to finish the painting and priming..:)

I have a lot of new signs that are going to be listed shortly on Ebay, Etsy and Artfire.  It's been busy here..orders are GREAT and I am gearing up for a craft show on Oct. 24th that should be amazing.  I have been invited to particapte in another craft show for our local school's PTSO.

Check back soon as I will post pics of the signs and the furniture hubby made me. :)

I am going to be having a giveaway on here shortly...keep your eyes open!!

Hope everyone has a blessed day and enjoy your Saturday.

Fall Time

Good Morning Everyone,

I haven't posted anything on my blog in awhile. I have been very busy this time of year, lots of craft shows and just life :).

I have been to 2 craft shows so far and still have 3 more to do..I am very excitied about them, but they can be draining to get ready for and with 3 different sites running, I think I am going to go crazy half the time LOL.

I did manage to take last weekend off, at least Friday and Saturday to spend time with my sister-in-law and her family. We had a wonderful time, and went apple picking!! I just love Fall and we took Saturday to go and the weather was perfect..couldn't ask for better temps and lots and lots of sunshine. We picked our own apples and then hit the apple barn where they have the best Apple Cider Doughnuts around..If any of you happen to come to Upstate NY, you have to go Hicks Apple Orchard in the Fall.

I have been so busy making new signs and trying to keep up with my 3 sites, plus making sure I get plenty of family time too...Jeff and Zach have been a great help!!
Here a few of the new signs I have finished.

I wanted to share with everyone too, that OFG is having its Fall Celebration and is having a gift basket giveaway, just type OFGF in the Etsy search bar..tons of wonderful creations from my OFG Sisters. Please take a few minutes and go and take a look :).

Please check back next Monday, as I will be featuring one of OFG's sisters on Mondays Market Place.

Have a wonderful day and many Blessings.
