Update on Buster

From a comment received I realized that I had negated to update about Buster. For those of you who have read and included Buster in your prayers, thank you.

As of today he his beginning to eat on his own and doing 100 times better! He is no longer dehydrated and getting his 'kitty' attitude back. I have never been so happy to be snubbed by a cat. Through it all my daughter has been very brave and my husband very helpful.

Thank you

Buster

Buster is my daughters cat. When he was little (and so was she) she could push him in her doll stroller. They read together, watch TV together and sleep together.

Tonight may be his last night. The vet will call us tomorrow am to let us know if she can take him in. I will be up tonight taking care of him so there will be no Hump Day special in my store for tomorrow. I pray he makes it. She will be crushed if he doesn't.

Christmas hints


So today I shamelessly sent my husband an email with items I would like for Christmas, the links to the items and the information he would need to check out! I know shameless. What can I say...

The first item is this gorgeous rustic, you know you will feel good just holding it, mug!

You can find all of their great items on Etsy at KC Pottery . Honestly I think I could just decorate my house with what they have to offer. Here is hoping.

And now next on my list is jewelry. What girl does not love jewelry and if you are like me and like something that looks vintage and timeless you will not find a better place to look then Etsy.

I love traditional, classic, simple yet completely feminine items. So it is no wonder that I had a hard time deciding which ones exactly I liked from The Vintage Diva's shop. It was however the white roses that won me out. I can wear those during winter and summer and with anything and they are so so gorgeous! Once again keeping my fingers crossed that hubby will get them for me!

ID an attacker

I know that this blog is usually pertaining to items that have to do with my shop. However today I have received an email that I would like to pass around and possibly those who live in Ramona and nearby areas can also pass around and help.

Take a look at this sketch.

Ramona Suspect

The Sheriff's Department has released this sketch of a man who slashed a woman in the back of the head while she was walking home from a Ramona bus stop on Tuesday.

The 18-year-old victim sustained a two-and-a-half inch laceration, sheriff's officials said. The attack occurred about 3:20 p.m. on Sawday Truck Trail in Ramona. The woman was able to run away after the attack.

The suspect was described as white, about 20 to 25 years old, 6 feet tall, with a thin and muscular build. He was clean-cut with a large nose and short or shaved dark hair, wearing a dark blue sweat shirt and black Dickies pants.

He was seen leaving in a silver, late-model foreign sedan.

Anyone with information can call Det. Lori-Ann Wells at (760) 789-9157.

It seems that the day has gotten away from me today while rushing little ones to dance class, the library and making sure that I have everything I need to pull off our Thanksgiving feast.

So I apologize for not having a special up today. But look for Friday, I will be back on track by then.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Welcome to day 4 & 5.

Chrysler Creek


This Cabernet scent is unequaled for it's smooth, robust and explosive fruity scent that will absolutely fill your home with it's warmth. This glass is filled with 14 ounces of my smooth soy & botanical wax that melts evenly all the way down. The scent stays in the wax unhampered until the wax turns liquid...like I said I burned this very candle for a year and the scent was just as strong as it was the day I lit it. If you like fruity scents...this is the candle for you. It will absolutely fill your home with it's warm, full, rich scent!

As always, I have used the cleanest fragrance oil available... no headaches from this scent and I have used all cotton wicks like my customers have come to expect.

The snowflake design makes it fun and elegant. I have added on a hangtag that lets you know the scent and tied it on with a blue ribbon that has silver snowflakes and the words "falling snow" printed on it.


Rachel's Aprons

A day at the beach set of 2 cotton wash cloths



Eco-Friendly and beautiful? Yes you can have it all!
100% Cotton Wash/Dish cloths are super absorbent, sturdy for tough counter and dish stains, wash well, and they last so much longer than the green and yellow ones you end up throwing out later. As a washcloth these are so soft! It will be your favorite wash cloth to use.
The cloths wash well and are 100% cotton. They make great additions to bridal shower presents, holiday gifts, or housewarming presents (or keep for yourself!) They are approximately 8 inches (20cm) x 8 inches (20cm).

To enter this giveaway go visit the shop and come back and comment. There will be new items on Thursday so don't forget to check back.

Colder weather is coming!

With winter months here and my children everywhere, I wanted the warmth of a scarf without the hassle. I love scarves but my children would rather pull on the them and tighten them around my neck. I needed something to keep my neck warm without being to tight ( I cannot wear turtle necks without feeling as though I am being strangled).

This is now available in my shop. And of course while I was out on my twice a week shopping trip today I happen to find some more yarn that needed a good home. LOL
These may make it as neck cowls as well. Definatly the cashmere will. Keep an eye out, those cowls are next and they will be $40 each.

New in shop today


Well I actually got to put something new in shop. It can be challenging between homeschooling, park dates,laundry......oh does the list every stop. There is peace with crochet and I have been busy with that when I can. Taking it to dance class, waiting for eldest to come out from P.E. If there is down time then I will surly have my hooks in hand.


Today I have added a new set of washcloths. Lime green (which came highly recommended by my 8 year old, I think she will have some wrapped under the christmas tree this year)


So take a peak (click on title to go to my shop) and tell me what you think of them. I used a smaller hook and different stitch ( I love to play around) so it has a nice texture and will not stretch out very much.

Spa Facial Scrubbies

I really like these. They feel so nice on my skin. Even my 8 year old likes them. I am thinking stocking stuffers this year with a rainbow of colors! Should be neat.

So this leads me to wonder...... Would you like to see a custom order listing in my shop with a color option? You can click it and choose what colors you would like.

Also, what kind of quantity options would you like to see made available. This can apply to anything in my shop.

Please leave a comment and let me know what you think. I want to provide what is wanted. After all that is a perk about buying handmade. You get what you want. :)

Flu, schmoo

Needless to say, while hooked up to an IV in the early hours of Wednesday morining after a marathon night of delight ( I will not get into it) I have learned the importance of staying hydrated while you have the flu.

As my husband says..... I should have listened to him. And he is right, of course.

The funny thing is that while I was dizzy I was thinking about my etsy store. Go figure.

Fridays Special will be up and running this week.

Thank you for your patience. Now I need to go back to bed and drink, drink, drink.

Up coming items!

Here is some insider information for those of you who follow my blog.....


Monday I will be adding a tote bags set. "Mommy and Me" Halloween tote bags. This is the first of 4 that I plan to do. Both bags are structured. Mommies bag is larger following the dimensions of my other tote bags and will have 3 pockets inside. Child's bag is also structured with two straps for handles made wide for comfort. This second bags girth is made an inch larger than moms. It also has a pocket but it is on the outside. Great for a cell phone, pens, crayons......their imagination is the limit. They can use the bag for school, toys in the car, all while being festive during the season and then use it for trick or treating! What a kick they will get out of having a bag just like moms!

Have you seen my new Spa Facial Scrubby? If you haven't then you better get over there! This week, homeschool allowing, I will be adding some white ones! Safe to bleach of you need to. Don't get me wrong, I love color but sometimes you want everything in your bathroom to coordinate and nothing does that better than white. I will also be adding listings for more than one scrubby so be on the look out. You can always convo me though. :)

And last I am working on cloth napkins that add the coming home feeling back into your kitchen! Made of some glorious prints and very nice absorbent cotton. I may even make some wipe clean coasters to match!

As you can see this weekend has been an inspiring one full of ideas. Happy shopping!

Together in Prayer

The Lord is far from the wicked, but He hears the prayer of the righteous. - Proverbs 15:29

Prayer gives us the strength to go on. It allows us the ability to communicate with the One Who loves us so very much.

Prayer brings you closer to the Lord and it allows Him the opportunity to speak to our hearts in the areas that we need His guidance.I want to encourage you to pray.

Pray MORE, and pray OFTEN!

May you all have a blessed day.
