TO MY FRIENDS...

Raelyn is home and doing well...except for that darn monitor that goes off for no reason....!!  I just want to thank everyone for all their prayers because they positively worked and gave me and my family great comfort.  It was 85 days of ups and downs - and this is the result of all your prayers...can't thank you enough!!  Blessings to all of you, Judy

Raelyn's first day home...so pretty surrounded in  pink!!

RAELYN IS HOME...

A heartfelt thank you to everyone for their best wishes and all the prayers - they worked!  She has a bit of a road ahead of her but it will certainly be paved with lots of love!!   Love to you - XO, Judy

I'll post a picture as soon as I get some of her at home....:~)

WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND...

My Mother use to say this all the time to her 5 children...it took a bit to fully understand what this meant...and once I did ... (for some)... When it gets you, it will get you good..think about it!  We reap what we sow...

This colloquialism doesn't always have to be for something bad...in fact at a flea market not too long ago I came across a small doll that I had made many, many (30) years ago...made me smile and she was on the dollar table!! Of course I purchased her...!!
Tony went to a yard sale on Saturday that sounded too good to be true...so he wasn't one of the early birds...and there it was...this really cool tool box that he KNOWS he once purchased and restored a
 L-O-N-G  time ago !!  Unmistakeable because of the "pink" paint inside...(which made us chuckle cause I am sure this carpenter just used old wood to construct the tool box - putting the "pink" inside.  Much of the "pink" has worn off but Tony had to buy it...the seller confirmed where she purchased it and now it is ready to come to the store again....WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND!!!

Prayers to bring Raelyn home tomorrow....blessings to you!
...these goodies arriving tomorrow too!!

SAD FACE..

...Raelyn had a couple of episodes last night and will not be coming home today...keep those prayers coming girls - disappointing but have to believe the doctors know best.  :~(

ASKING AGAIN...

For some really happy prayers - that Raelyn goes all night without any of the "bradies" (reflux with heart drops and oxygen depletion)...and just MAYBE this sweet little girl will come home tomorrow!!
There is a bright light at the end of the tunnel....and she has a Mommy and Daddy and brothers and sisters just waiting for her to join their family.   Grandmom and Pop-Pop, Nana and Pappy - Aunts and Uncles, lots and lots of cousins too - and cannot forget Liz the best Nanny in the whole wide world... who just want to shout to the world -
WELCOME HOME RAELYN...but it is going to take some happy prayers - Thanks guys...I know you have it in you!! XO
Isn't she adorable!!!   10 weeks old - over 6 lbs...and a bundle of pure love!

Hello hospital....I am coming to bring my little sister home so get her diaper changed please!!
Trilby Blue....22 months !!

CLOSED TODAY....

Starting my weekend...Monday and Tuesday - which I spend with Trilby as Raelyn is still in the hospital...but thinking she will be home soon.  The doctors are being extra special careful to be sure when they send her home...she will NOT be back except for check-ups!  She is still having those breathing episodes but they are getting BETTER. 

Lots of new items came into the store this past week....kept me busy pricing and displaying...
Large wooden measure....in really great condition!
Child's table....
 
and the legs fold up...!!

...love this little bench - and the old tin bucket!
 
.....metal milking stool - and bouquets of flowers are easy to arrange when you purchase one of our flower frog lids !!
Hope your Monday is the beginning of a great week!!

COUNTRY GARDEN STUFF...

One of my friends said if she ever changed the name of her store..it would be called "Just Stuff"...her store is "anything" but "just stuff" - Located in Cape May Courthouse and called ...The Dutch Rose.
Well...we have some fun "garden stuff" for you to play with - inside and out!
Wooden tool boxes to carry garden tools or to hold flower pots...
Nice old pulley to hang a plant from..
 ...a new photo/card holder to hold seed packets, notes or pictures for your outside play area!
 ...vintage tomato cage with wooden shelf to sit on your porch, patio or sunroom.
 ...advertising tins to plant in (some olde and some with "new" olde labels)
Many more ideas - so if you are looking for something "unique" - stop in the store and see if you find that special something!!

I AM DECLARING...

..the official END of winter.  Couldn't believe I had to "scrape" ice from the car windows Monday and Tuesday!!
I want to plant my flowers and herbs...glad I was not fooled by Mother Nature when we had those nice warm days...all in a row!!  Now I am ready to start beautifying the gardens.  My planters are all ready filled with soil and ready to plant.  I will have some for sale too....wait till you see the "new" idea I got from the greenhouse....(anxious to try it)!!  It is gloomy and going to rain today but I do think we have "finally" turned the corner on "old man winter" !!

A new soap line is arriving today....made locally in Lancaster County.   I am sure you will love it as much as I do.  I just have to figure out where in the world I am going to display it.  The store is filled with new treasures with more arriving Thursday and Friday !!

By request -we are also going to start carrying 1803 Candles - a soy candle that is, simply put,..."WONDERFUL" !  They should be arriving very soon also.   Lots of work ahead of me in finding room to display all the new goodies.  Thinking you need to come in and purchase some treasures so I have enough room to display everything...!!

Happy Wednesday -
Chicken nester and birdhouses displayed on front porch...all for sale!
