About Me

My photo
I have been married to my childhood sweetheart for 42 wonderful years. I have been blessed with one daughter who is grown and gone! She and her hubby have blessed us with a precious grandchild, Darbee Rae. She is eight years old and the sunshine in our days. I have always been a stay at home maid, cook, doctor, babysitter, taxi, wife, mother, and grandmother. I enjoy crafting. My interests include primitives, vintage and colonial styles. I love decorating my home. I enjoy traveling with my hubby and friends, reading, and trying different recipes. I am a Christian and enjoy activities within my church. I hope you enjoy reading about my daily adventures in crafting, shopping, and enjoying life thru the eyes of my darling grand daughter.

Ready Or Not.....The Time Has Come

Well Hello to all my prim pals.  Still remember me?? For the last few weeks I have had no news to share, no neat places I have visited, or any great finds to share with you.  Why??? Because I have been glued to my chair in the craft room and downstairs at the kitchen table getting ready for the big 3 day show we do this weekend.

Did I say this weekend??   Whew!  It is here already and what is done is done.  Mr. P. loaded the truck and trailer 2 times today and hauled up to our booth.  What did I do??  I sat and FINISHED up all my items for the booth.  As of 6 o'clock this afternoon, I am DONE.   Such a wonderful feeling. Holly and Darbee Rae have been such good helpers this year.  They helped the mister put up the tent.

Think Papa was a brave soul to have his fingers so close!  Darbee worked so hard.  Loved that she had to wear a cap like Papa's.  She wasn't  too happy when Papa took his off because he was so hot!
We were blessed with the weather today as well.  With Issac hitting the gulf,, we were to get heavy rains.  Luckily we only had a shower this morning early.  Hoping that will be the forcast for the weekend, just scattered showers if any.
I have really missed visiting with all of you..  Can't wait for things to get back to normal.  But it will be awhile yet.  Mr. P has the next 2 weeks off from work and I am so excited to have some time to spend with my hubby.  Hoping all of you have something exciting planned for the holiday weekend.  Take care and be safe.
Will be back soon with results from the craft show. 
Until then....


  1. I hope you sell a million!
    Bless you both!

  2. Hope the trailer is empty on the way home. Good luck!

  3. Good luck with the show and may you sell it all! Nothing like good helpers.

  4. Hope you sell out!!! I usually do a show this weekend, but decided not to after getting the rements of Hurrican Irene last year, left a bad taste in my mouth, and now with the forcast just about the same, I'm glad I chose not to do it. And, hubby got a kidney stone last Fri, so it's been hospitals and dr appts. this week and I would have been freakin out not getting everything done!!!! And after surgery today, good thing, as we would have a tent to get up tomorrow!!!!

    Good luck!!!

  6. I hope you sell out and that there is no rain. We are going to get the rains from Issac on Saturday and Sunday...they are saying anywhere from 2 to 6 inches of rain. We are going to work on our kitchen this weekend and go out to dinner one evening for our 33rd anniversary.
    Have a great show.
