I don't know about you all but time just gets away from me
and especially when I start making products for our show.
During this lull in posting we made
2 more floor cloths and lots of merchandise for the show.

It has also been a busy time with family. Our grandson Joe graduated from UW Steven's Point in June (as did his girlfriend Taylor), 2 great-grandchildren had birthday's, Miranda turned 1 and her brother Zayne 9 years old in June a week apart.

Then in July 2 grandchildren had birthdays a week apart. Aidan turned 14 and his sister Miranda 10 years old. Busy, fun and 'expensive' 😁

I'm so ready for a vacation but don't see that happening until mid October when the show is over. Not sure where we'll go but hoping for either Savannah, GA or Maine.
We have never been to Savannah but been to Maine 4 times and still would go again.
I guess we have time to figure it out.
As I said at the beginning we made floor cloths and I think they turned out quite nice - hopefully they will sell at our show.
The lighting is not very good on them - in person the gold isn't as bright as it looks here.


Back in March we ordered a brass lantern to replace the one in our courtyard area - I thought I liked our old one but this one is now a favorite!!  We ordered it from Irvin's Tin

(the old one is sitting behind it ready for the trash pickup)
A couple weeks ago when it was so beastly hot for several days straight we had a visit from our neighborhood hawk.

A couple weeks ago we were invited out to Dan DiPaolo's cabin for a cookout - we had some awesome burgers made from the meat of one of his beef was soooo good!!!  Plus we got to meet some of Dan's great friends. (and it was on my birthday so it was double fun).

Here's a VERY SMALL SAMPLING of some of the products that we will have at our show.  There is just way too much to post pictures of.
Our show is Saturday, October 1st so it's coming up fast!!

Thank you so much for visiting today - hopefully it will be sooner than
5 months when I can post again!!
