A Coincidence?

Hi folks...hope you're staying warm and cozy as January flies by.

I wanted to address something I noticed today... Don't know if some of you remember, but last year, I posted pics of some seed pouches I had made, which were copied from one I had that had belonged to my granny. I had never seen any like hers before, so I was excited to share my own version of those pouches for sale.

Now, I realize that things are copied all the time, but it doesn't mean we are pleased to see them, right? Especially when we post on our sites asking folks NOT TO COPY!

This has been posted on my blog as long as I have had it...Be so kind... Please enjoy my pics, words, homemades and hand-dids. Please do not copy them...Thank you! Now, what part of that statement isn't clear?

I was visiting one of my 'favorite' sites today and low & behold, there were seed pouches very, very much like mine. The one difference was that mine are made from a variety of old homespun fabrics and these were plain.Ok, so you liked mine so much, you wanted your own? Well, at least give me credit for giving you the idea! Or better yet, give my late granny credit since she made hers back when I was a child, and believe me, that was a long, long time ago...LOL

I hope you do well with your seed pouches, and think of me when you reap the reward of my work! These are pictures to give you another look...ENJOY!

BRRRRR... Be careful what you wish for...LOL We're having a mini-blizzard today. The only good thing about the wind is it will blow the snow sideways and over to another mountain!
We have some accumulation, but not too bad...the icy wind is the real test. We're hunkered down in our cozy little cabin, waiting for more of those unseasonably warm days.
Fortunately, Giles had some pleasant days, earlier this month, to finish up his log cabin orders for two of our favorite shops. If your weather is nice enough to venture out, be sure to look for our wares at JUST COUNTRY in Raeford, N.C. ( ) and/or at MILLIE HUCKABAY'S AMERICAN COUNTRY in Alpharetta, Georgia ( ) Thanks Jen and Millie for helping our 2012 get off to a good start.
As for our first show of the year, we'll be in Fishersville, VA on February 11th for Winter In The Valley, so please make your plans to be there...No matter the weather, you won't regret the trip. So many great dealers with so many wonderful primitive/country antiques, folk art, make-dos, and handcrafted.
Hope your new year has started off with many blessings... Thanks for stopping by!

Glad you stopped by...

We have just added new goodes to our selling blog. Please check them out and let us know if you need anything.

Will chat with you soon as I build an ark to accomodate all this rain. Where is winter?
Not the 'blizzard type' winter...You know the one! Chilly temps, sunny or partly sunny...the sort of weather that makes you want to cozy up to the fire and do a little reading or stitching or just day-dreaming. The sort that leads us to the kitchen to cook a big pot of vegetable soup or spicy chili... Just saying, I'd love to wear a turtle-neck without breaking out in a sweat! Blessings!
