Hi Friends & Folk...

my little shop will be closed today.

I am still punky from the crud and now it has travelled down to my chest.


oh, and Mr. Ignatious Katt needs me to stay in the warm farmhouse
to fetch him his catnip-mouse every now-and-again.

Sorry for any inconvenience, but I'd rather not spread my crud to anyone else ~
I WILL be open again on Wednesday (perhaps even Tuesday) of next week.

in between blowing my sore nose and napping,
I did manage to put Christmas away ~
down came the trees & trimmings and out came my flowers...

yes, I agree...a little early ~ but ~ they lift my spirits and make me feel cheerful
and I can use all the help I can get right now with this yuck-of-a-cold.

morning sunlight has always been my favorite...
I love how it slips in and gently wakens & warms us ~

no, they're not real, but Tulips are my very favorite flower
and none are up yet ~ so silk will have to do!

I'm working on little ditties for this coming Saturday,
I will be heading out to Donna's Cabin for her

Cabin Goods Gathering

(see link on top of my sidebar)
I'll have a small selection of finished stitched items & other needfuls ~
Millstone Mercantile (Robin)
Hen House Primitives (Cecilia) and a few chosen others will be there...
it promises to be a great little show ~ and I think a perfect time of the year for one!
Hope to see you there ~

well I'm off to put a pot of soup on the woodstove...
just what the doctor ordered!!!

blessings from the farm,

I'm still battling the same thing as you -- it does seem to want to hang on for quite some time!! The cough racks the body -- and doing even the slightest thing makes me so tired.....

Hope you are feeling much better soon. Love the pics of your room -- so nice and welcoming.

I have little hyacinth tops coming up in my garden -- they are as confused as the rest of us with this weather!
