Fall Season Schedule & Christmas Open House

It's hard to believe that it is October already and soon we will be in the holiday season. I have been very busy doing a lot of sewing and I even made a couple Christmas aprons already! I am also busy taking care of my Dad and will soon have a lot more to do with gathering paperwork for him at the nursing home.  I have hit many roadblocks trying to get power of attorney, but finally today is the day!  It will make things much easier now!   
I have several vendor events line up for the rest of the year and one of them is my Open House on the weekend before Thanksgiving.  See dates and times below.  
Anyone is welcome!  Stop in and see my new " Shop" in my house, and have some light refreshments and get some Christmas shopping done a little early!  I will also be taking special orders for Christmas that weekend! 

Friday, Nov. 21 -  1 pm-7 pm
Saturday, Nov. 22 - 10am- 7pm
Sunday 1pm- 7pm 

I am working on some more messenger bags for Christmas this year.  I sold 2 recently to one of the vendors at Purcellville.  He bought one for the little girl in the picture.  As you can see the strap was so long it came down to her ankles.   Later I found her and adjusted the strap as far as it would go so it would be easier for her to carry.  I asked her what she had in the bag, and she said " my stuff".  I think she had some toys in it. She was so cute, probably around 7 years old.
  The small drawstring bags pictures below have suede or faux suede strings, and are great for jewelry, or a child to put small toys or change in it, or you can use as a small gift bag or  gift card. I  will be making more out of Christmas fabric. They would be great to fill with candy for  a gift card to someone for Christmas.  Stay tuned!


 Here is my schedule for vendor events for the rest of the year:

Nov. 1-  Purcellville Town Market
Nov. 8 - A Mom's Catalog Event at Quality Inn in Harpers Ferry, WV
Nov. 21-23  Becky's Pillow Shop Christmas Open House
December 7 - Christmas Craft Show in Chambersburg, PA  Brethren Church
December 13 -  Holiday Open House in Shepherdstown, WV 317 Ashley Drive.

Apple Butter, My Newest Line & Celebrity Status??

This past weekend I was a vendor at the Apple Butter Festival in Berkeley Springs .  I was located right outside of Lion's Lair Unique Gift Store.  You can find some of my aprons & bags in there.   I set up with my friend Michelle from Shepherdstown, WV who makes homemade soap. My Wild Rose Soap  is the name of her company.  I covered for her on Saturday and a friend from Martinsburg came and helped me.   The weather could have been better but at least it wasn't pouring down rain.  On Saturday, I was freezing, Sunday was better with the sun out but then got cold again.  I sold lots of small tooth fairy pillows and here is my newest " Spanish" one. It will be available on Etsy soon!  Though it was supposed to be a " cowboy" pillow, it ended up looking like e the Frito Bandito so I decided to make it a Spanish Tooth Fairy pillow!   Some of you are too young to remember what the Frito Bandito was, but a commercial from a long time ago. Uh oh, telling my age now.  Ha!

On Sunday, a lady came by and said she was a reporter from the local paper and asked to take my picture. Today I received a message from Lion's Lair employee that it was in the paper!!
It's a little fuzzy, but that's about as good as I can make it since  it was emailed to me from a picture someone took.  When Michelle & I decided to set up together she suggested that I make some cosmetic bags for her soap, so I made several and that's my newest line item!   
I have a few of the cosmetic bags on Etsy so you can check them out at

Famous Singers & Nice Surprises

On Saturday, I had a great time at the Patsy Cline Block Party!  It started off with the Elvis Impersonator who had a great voice, though he was kind of short and his hips  just didn't move like Elvis's.   He did a wonderful job on How Great Thou Art, and I got a short video of Burning Love, however, it was taking to long to download.
 I saw a couple of my friends there from my church, and later on was waving to one who was standing on the corner, but she didn't see me, and two other people walking up the hill waved.  I thought I wasn't waving at them, but when I looked it was my best friend from childhood and her Mom.  We were best friends from 5th grade all the way through High School!  I couldn't believe it .  I was so excited to see them.  She had read my blog so knew I was going to be there, and decided to come.  It was a very nice surprise!!  

The Patsy Cline Block Party had local music for 2 hours, some really great singers.  They also had the Patsy Cline official singer who is in the middle in the pink shirt.  Jimmy Fortune made an appearance also, and I got a quick snapshot of him and Patsy Cline's husband as they walked by my booth!  There was a concert that night with Jimmy Fortune and another group at the park.   

My next event is Saturday at the Purcellville Town Market.  I am looking forward to that and have a special going on - spend $25 and get 1 item for half price!   I will be featuring new aprons,  kids pillows, music pillows, & lots of football pillows with football season starting.   To check out my Etsy Shop:  go to

Beach Parties, Block parties & Selfies??

Where has the summer gone? It seems like it just flew by. I have been busy with vendor events and taking care of things for my Dad in his new home. The past two weeks I have been working on custom orders , a total of 13 items, so am thankful I had 2 weeks off with no events, and had plenty of time to do them.  On Monday, I went to a beach birthday party, and had fun watching my friends kids pouring sand on my feet and trying to use my water bottle as a beach toy in the water. Too cute! Yesterday I got a haircut, and then had to run errands. I thought it looked nice and thought about taking a " selfie", ( which I DON'T normally do) .  When I got home, I was trying to carry heavy groceries up the steps, and tripped having my chin land on the sidewalk!  Ouch!   After seeing what I looked with a huge bandaid on my chin, I decided against it!  Lol.
  I just finished an Etsy Back to School sale, and  have several back to school items.  ( Pictured laptop messenger bag (custom order - sold)  Music wristlet, (tablet holder) Laundry bag & soccer backpack.) Check out my  Etsy Shop . There will soon  be more new items!  To check them out:

Since school is starting, I am gearing up  for the busiest time of the year for my business.   I have several vendor events planned from now to the end of the year, but my next one is a Block Party in Winchester on Saturday, Aug. 30.  It is a " Patsy Cline" Block party.  There will be live country music from local bands, craft vendors, concession stands, & people can go and view the Patsy Cline's home for just $5.  See the flyer posted. I just finished an Etsy Back to School sale, and I have several new items in my Etsy Shop and soon will be posting several more!  To check them out:
Stay tuned for  my next blog and I will give a copy of my schedule of vendor events from now until end of the year!

Writer's Block, Dementia & Back to School Open House

I haven't been able to blog  in a long time due to some writer's block caused by a lot of  stress that I have had recently.  I had to move my Dad to another Assisted Living facility.  It took over a month to finally get him moved, no thanks to the director where he was living who said, " he has to go, I can't take care of him any longer."   Unfortunately, she  did everything she could to cut her own throat to keep him from getting moved, because she wanted to do things her way, the easy way & didn't follow protocol , and  didn't do what was needed to get him moved even up until the very last day!  I will spare the details, but it was very stressful for me, a nightmare to say the least, and in the end I had to get an advocate. She was very helpful, and she was not at all happy with her.  The good news is he is in a much better place.  It's an assisted living place that specializes in dementia. My Dad's dementia isn't too bad right now.  He thinks his one and only daughter is a movie star!  He says, " I see you on TV all the time".  LOL!  The first day, they took him there, fed him lunch, and then he played Bingo, followed by a singalong (my Dad loves to sing & used to sing solos in church).  Then, they had a pastor to speak, and my Dad led in prayer, since he is a retired minister.  I missed most of it, because I was unpacking his things in his room, but I could tell he was already much happier!
 Daddy leaving for his new home! 

I have still been busy with vendor events this summer, going to Purcellville Town Market, and will be going to Berkeley Springs on Saturday, July 26 to set up in front of Lion's Lair. My schedule so far:

My Newest Brand, Hired Help & my Etsy Sale!

  Do you struggle with "clutter" at your house as much as I do?  I get so overwhelmed sometimes with all my clutter, and don't know what to do with it all.  I also get overwhelmed with all that there is to do to take care of my home, and unfortunately there is no one to help. It's been almost 5 years since my husband's accident, and death, and we didn't have children so there's just me.  I am responsible for everything, including making sure grass is mowed, gardening, house is clean and everything else that comes with owning a home.   I have had "several" handy men in the last 5 years, doing lots of odd jobs, and none of them worked out for one reason or another. Finally, for the summer,  I have hired a " handy woman". My best friend's daughter is home from college, and needed a job, so I have hired her to work 8-10 hours a week. She has done a lot in  in just 3 short days, she has cleaned and organized half of my basement - a HUGE job, did spring cleaning in the kitchen, weeded my flower garden, planted some herbs, edited & taken pictures for my business, and more. She will be helping me with other various jobs as they come along this summer. My goal was to clean the basement this past winter, but it was just too COLD down there.  Anyway, I am excited about getting some things done around here, she is also good at organizing, and good with a hammer & nail, so she will be very such a blessing to have around.

You might notice the picture at the top, this is my new line of drawstring  "backpacks."  Although, this one has lightweight webbing, not cord, and it has a heavyweight orange lining.  I'm going to be making more of these and also more messenger bags of different fabrics.  There are a few new items pictured also, the denim tote with the German boy & girl on the side,
and butterfly handbag.
 Planning to make some beach bags, so if you need one and have a special request let me know.  I will be doing tote style, and drawstring style like the tropical fish bag pictured.  Note : this one is small but would be great for a kid's bag.  All these items will be on Etsy or my web site soon!
 I am having a SALE on Etsy.  Get $3 off any $15 purchase!  Use coupon code:  LATESPRINGSALE3  at checkout to get discount.  If you have any questions, please do no hesitate to send me a message through Etsy or to my e-mail address or "Contact Me on my web site!

I almost forgot!  I had a giveaway to celebrate 200 Facebook likes.  The winner was Gina Painter -she will receive a $20 gift card!
