Christmas is in FULL swing!

I am so sorry there has been no post from me in the last week or two! As everyone is, just busy- busy - busy! It happens this time of year! Busy as always with the site, which I am thankful for! I hope that everyone is enjoying the start of this season, it is so important to stop and enjoy all the little moments. My house it somewhat decorated, I will rearrange some things !~sometimes you just need to be in the right mood for it all to set just right.

I do have a new inexpensive gift idea, it is the gift of a Bayberry Votive Candle. I have it listed in my store under a few categories: candles, winter and what's new, ( and you also can find it in my Etsy store, ( ~ you will love this simple, but thoughtful gift for a friend this season. So many of us are hit hard with the economy, but yet want to give, I felt this would be a perfect gift to share with you that is inexpensive and hopefully a gift that will last all year for your recipient.

Last night we finally captured the photo for the Christmas card this year, Murphy loves his picture taken :) This week will be busy, but I know I will enjoy all the moments! Til I blog again may you be blessed ~~ Bobbie

Blessings to you this Thanksgiving

As I look back on this past year ~ I have much to be thankful for. We have our health, home and most of the time happiness. We have our faith, family and friends, and most of all we share alot of love with each other, sometimes it is hard, but at the end of the day there is love in our home and that is most important when raising a family. This year has gone by what seems to be very fast for me. I always say it is because the kids are in school and sometimes life is a blur. This Thanksgving will be spent with my family, a small gathering but lots of great food. I hope wherever you may be that your day is full of blessings ~ Life is hard, but for one day let us feel all of God's blessings.
I am excited that today I received my copy of Country Sampler, January 2011 issue has me on page 58 and a few of the items in my store ~ so exciting for me for this is my first ad. Wish me luck ~
No pics to post today ~ Enjoy your weekend, it will be a long one! I will be up early for Black Friday ... yep gotta love getting up early and shop! Eventhough we need nothing ~ LOL.

Be safe if your traveling ~ May your day be blessed ~~ Bobbie

Holiday Season Upon Us

PrImItive ChrIsTmaS TreE's ~ Bowl Fillers, on ETSY.


When I think about it I just can't believe how fast the seasons go. I think I blogged about this before, having children just make the time go so fast sometimes. I thought to myself a couple of days ago on how I took my children trick or treating, with the wagon and the dog, and I really thought to myself I hope that I enjoyed that moment in my life. Brings tears sometimes to my eyes ... all I ever wanted was to be a "Mom" and here it is ... am I enjoying it enough? I have been so blessed, and do thank God for it, but I hope that I am not getting to caught up in the bad moments that it overshadows the good stuff! I belong to a group at my church, St. Mary's, and these ladies that I meet really help me understand some of these times in my life. We each help each other in a way...another blessing in my life. Well today is All Saints Day ~ A time to reflect, for me it was at Eucharistic Adoration to beable to sit and be still for a moment in a darkened church, a special time for me.

On another note, the Halloween is down outside, my goose is dressed in her pilgrim outfit. Such a peaceful time, pilgrims and turkies ~ As my readers know ... I love the fall. Tomorrow I will take down the inside stuff, and yes purge the old stuff. I will be donating it to a local second hand store. I am doing well with this area in my life, one big box, a black bag full of clothing and I think one more box will be ready to go on Wednesday! My children are home three days this week ~ teacher conferences. I hope the weather can hold out for a couple of more days of football. So it will be a busier week.

Projects I am working on ... my Primitive Snowman Hats ~ sold a few on ETSY ... wow! Very HaPpY! So working on those since winter decorating is upon us! I have my regular orders to fill, which I am blessed to have... I love my website, love my store, and all the friends that I get to meet through there. Picture posted is my winter tree bowl fillers listed on ETSY, love the pRiM! I also have a newer project, little woolies ... ornaments ~ mittens and stockings, so prim for your tree. I can't post any pics since my son lost the camera cord, need to find it ASAP!

Well that is all ~ I will blog with you soon ~ I hope your day was nice, and til again, may you be blessed!

Windy Day!

Holy Cow was it windy around here today! Wild winds produced up to 60 mph ... say goodbye to my halloween decor ... it is in the garage for now! Poor Murph had a hard time going out today ~ his poor ears just flapping away! The rains were very hard at times, but we needed it, has not rained for awhile so its good for the fall. Fall leaves are scarce, so I am glad we enjoyed the color changes while we did. Needless to say not much raking will need to be done :) ... anyway just sharing some news of the day with you ~ I am thankful today, it is the one year anninversary for my husband to be working, (Wonderful Company too!) after a three year period of being out of a job. So many still out of work, or their future unknown, so I know how scarry it is ~ Today I am thankful and share the words of encouragement, that everything will be okay, it may not work out the way you want it to, and have to be accepting of it, but all is okay. Well friends, goodnight, and til I blog again may your day be blessed. ~~ Bobbie

Good Wednesday to All ~

New Wood Tray ... Love it!
Finally found a home :0)

New Mustard Shelf in my Kitchen

Hello All ~ Hope today brought you a little sunshine :0) ... another beautiful fall day around here ~ we are so lucky! Sunshine is the best medicine! Today was a busy day for me ... attended my bible study with my friends at church, love this group of ladies, we have so much in common and really know what each other feels at times ... I think its great therapy :0) ... then I decided instead of running around doing mindless errands I would come home ... Murphy and I decided to rearrange the family room for the next season ... he found some of his long lost toys ... for me its a good way to do some cleaning ... it also gives me a lift. I am trying each day to "purge" starting slowly but my goal is 10 things a day, and they can be small things, they either go into a big box that will go to Goodwill, or see if anyone can use it...I feel weighed down sometimes with the clutter. Took some new photos of my house, when I posted the last I did not like how some things were so I switched it! Sometimes you need a photo to see what is wrong with a grouping. Well that is enough chatter for now, I have to finish preparing dinner before honey is home :) Meatloaf tonight ... haven't had it since last season! Which also by the way we will be celebrating a year of employment on the 26th! So much to be thankful for! Well until I blog again may your day be full of little blessings ~ Bobbie

PS.... Enjoy the pics ... and comments are always welcomed! Oh and don't forget to stop by the store, I filled it with some new towels, table runners, table cloths for christmas! Yes, it will be here sooner than we want! Check under "What's New" also some new lamps that are just wonderful!

Sunny Sunday

What a beautiful day today ~ Love the sunshine in my neck of the woods ... great day to watch some football (of course the BEARS) ... make something good in a crock (which I am not! LOL, we are going out to dinner tonight ..yeah!) ...and a great day to post some pics of the house and the halloween spirit! There are a few, comments welcomed! I love to decorate, this year not so much, I am feeling simple this year! Plus I have a few new treasures that I just wanted to admire :) ... Mr. Jackson is a headless guy and Ms. Gretchen with her pumpkin head ... love these new dolls! A few other additions, the white pumpkin and a sign or two! I am in the midst of rearranging some wall groupings so I can paint, would love to before the holidays...we will see about that! Last night we went to a "haunted house" someone in one of the subdivisions goes all out for halloween ~ Love his house, very spooky and very well done! My if only I could accomplish that! We will settle for our tiny graveyard, spooky kitty, spooky tree and cat eyes in the windows! A few light ups here and there ...Love to see the halloween spirit all around!

Well I hope that your Sunday is a great one too! Until I blog again may you be blessed ~~Bobbie

I said a prayer that they all will be safe.

It is a beautiful Fall day is here in Huntley (except for the clouds that just rolled in) and I am inside cleaning house! Also finishing some orders and of course playing with Murphy. Had to post a few new pics of him ... he is getting big...4 months and 35 lbs. Most of the halloween decorating is done outside courtesy of my younger son, he loves a spooky house...I tried this year. I am hoping to go to a fall festival this weekend, but time is always short for us with baseball. My neice gets married the following weekend, Columbus Day weekend and that is a huge crafting weekend! She forgot to consult me ..LOL. Hopefully it will be a beautiful day for her. Well anyday you get married is a beautiful one.
Well don't forget to head over to the store when you have a chance. Lamps were added ... yes blurry pictures, I don't know why I am trying to fix quickly!

A New Member of the Family

We have a new member of our family, a 10 week old male yellow lab! His name is Murphy and we love him so much already ... For those that know me we had a chocolate lab named Bailey that we had to put down two years ago. It has been hard and she is missed so much. My husband and I share many great moments in our life with that doggie! If you seen the movie Marley and Me, that was our story almost exactly. She was our "first" and had a mind of her own...I remember moments of me just getting my little Adam to sleep after a battle of overtierdness and she would start barking at a squirrel or whatever else ... I wanted to strangle her but afterall I knew she was "protecting" us. This little guy I hope will give us many memories with the kids who are now a bit older. Zach loves him and now has discovered how hard it is to take care of a 'baby" ...newness has not warn off but he feels the tierdness of getting up with him and watching him like a hawk so he doesn't get into mischief!

For Country Store at Your Door news, I am switching my server sometime this week, the change should not cause any delays but just in case email me if you are having a hard time viewing the store ... I am still open 24/7. Be sure to check out the new fall things available ... decorating is right around the corner! I personally bought a fall goose outfit today ~ SHE needed something new to wear! Won't be long til she is wearing it!

Well til next time I blog may you be blessed with a happy day!
