Happy Sunday ~

It's a gloomy, rainy Sunday here in northern Ohio but no complaints from me.  We need the rain, and though I have lots of yardwork to do, I have a good excuse why it's not getting done :)  Yesterday I went and played all day ~ I was in search of more vintage plated flatware.  I did find quite a few pieces, but also came home with "something" that was not on the list . . . lol.  I will share that with you in a future post.
I've finally drawn a couple winners for the garden markers and hors d'ouevre knife.  Congrats to Julia Bush who entered via email and to Sue Tokash.  You have five days to contact me.  Please send my your snail mail address and let me know what you want your markers to say.  (These are just examples.)
If you are interested in purchasing any markers, I would be happy to oblige.  They are $6 each or $5 each for 3 or more.  I don't think shipping would be any more than $4 for 4-5 markers via USPS mail.  Shipping will be much more outside of the US.  For 5 markers to Canada I believe it would be about $9.  I will charge exact shipping only.  I am one who hates being gouged for shipping.
Thanks to all who take the time from your busy lives to read my blah, blah, blah.
Pug hugs :)


  1. Haha... my heart skipped a beat when I saw the name Julia...

    Of course, I had to order more of them for gifts.
    Love them. Also, I must tell that I went to the
    animal rescue thrift store and bought a small
    rocker with a cane seat - very shaker looking
    and for only $25.00. I have put it in my sewing
    room. Thanks Lauren!
