Amazing Color & Beauty ..... Just When I Need It The Most


My beautiful Christmas Cactus
never fails me.
It doesn't matter how much
this little plant is forgotten
about or neglected , it
always manages to surprise me 
with it's annual rebirth.


A strange , delicate &
brilliant flower.


Always such a gift at 
this time of year.

I'm Still Here ...... Just Too Darn Busy All The Time !


I'm always doing something , just like many of you.
There's just never enough time in a day ....
or enough energy.

As you can see I've been knitting, a lot !

I've come pretty far with it in just a few months.
I've graduated from scarves to hats .
I also do purse and hand warmers &
head bands . I prefer to do hats ...
to me they are fun.


I've been so busy with the shop too .
I've been working 6 days a week
 just for it to survive . 

The long hot summer did 
not help sales. 

When it's 95 & humid, 
nobody shops !


But soon hopefully , they will 
pile into my shop for the holiday rush.


The season's are changing way
too fast as far as I'm concerned.

I'm really not ready for the cold & 
I'm looking out the window at the shop
as I type this and it so dark out at 
only 5:00 !


My hats are available if you
see one you'd like.

Goodnight Blogger Ladies .
