Welcome to my little corner of the world...I will be sharing a variety of things from recipes to craft projects to memories of my life being raised on a small dairy farm in Middle Tennessee! I have had a WONDERFUL life and can't wait to get to know YOU...Blessings to you...Charlotte
I LOVE to design and to paint whimsical items that will put a smile on your face. Each day I share my simple life with you as I try to encourage, to inspire and sometimes JUST to make you smile as I recount my life growing up on a dairy farm! I've never had many material items in my life, BUT I have been blessed beyond words with love and encouragement from WONDERFUL Parents who instilled in me WHAT was important. I have had EVERYTHING that I needed and WAY too much of what I wanted. I am slowly learning to be a better person each day through my interactions with my friends on Facebook. Some day I hope to be as good as people seem to THINK I am! I am BLESSED! Welcome to my little corner of the world...Please stop by and visit often!
I THINK that My Friends and I are going to be JUST
FINE! We have been playing.
My friend, Lynn, had the first elf that I knew about and it
was not very long before several of my friends wanted an Elf…
Our friend, Miss Brenda Griffith, of The Rusty Thimble, is
the maker of our elves, well except for ONE that Miss Ramona made when Miss
Brenda had to take a break to care for her mother who had a HORRIBLE fall…so He
is NOW one of us, TOO!
She has an etsy shoop and a blog, so be sure
to get the links on her page and VISIT! The Blog link can be found on the left side of my blog.
She is so very talented!
A funny thing happens SOMETIMES when the season’s change…our
ELVES awaken and start to explore and to see what they have missed while doing
other things in preparation to MAKE THE MAGIC HAPPEN!!
On Sunday, I heard chairs being moved, things being knocked
over and a lot of scampering...This is WHAT I found...Poor Charlie…I don’t
think he UNDERSTANDS taking a drive to see the fall leaves…He got the car down
from the mantle, found some Flower picks, threw them on the floor and had
Charcoal to take the picture of his FALL Sunday afternoon drive…He said he had
HEARD me talk about taking Fall Drives on Sundays with my family to see the leaves…oh,
Charlie, you ARE a Prince, and the FAIREST in ALL the Land, but this is TOO
early for the leaves to change colors and this is NOT how we do it in the
South…we go OUTSIDE to take a drive...sigh…Oh, Well, He DOES wish you all,
Sheila’s elf, Edgar,
was helping her decorate on Sunday! He LOVES halloween! She is going to have to make him a mask that fits!
Sheila is a WONDERFUL artist and does beautiful scroll work. This is the link to her Facebook page and you
can also find her blog link on the right side of my blog.
Levi Winston III was helping my friend, Linda, pack up an
order last week. He's such a great helper! He helped her make a pot of pintos…we
ALL hope he didn’t get gassy….eek!
This is Willie and his first day of fall…Willie was created
by Miss Ramona since Miss Brenda had to take care of her mother, but we love
Willie and welcome him to our GROUP of Elves…He is doing his very best to keep
the CROWS away…
Bernard, is another
member of the group…he was out RIDING the Flamingo’s (doesn’t EVERY ONE do
this) on the first day of fall!
Wendy is one of the most AMAZING sculptures that I have seen…She
specializes in gourds and had EDUCATED all of us in “gourd sex” to teach us how
she pollinates the blooms in the summer…Oh dear me, the things I have learned
that I NEVER KNEW I needed to know!
Please go visit Wendy’s page on Facebook.
I’ve introduced all of you to Hinkley in a previous blog
post…Hinkley has had a tough year…He was created to replace the original elf
when he was lost in a housefire on Cape Cod…It has been a TOUGH year for Lynn,
but it is WONDERFUL to see the journey she has shared with us to FINALLY be
HOME AT LAST…You will want to visit Lynn’s Facebook page to keep up with her
WONDERFUL documentation of the struggles and JOYS…You can also find her blog
link on the left side of my blog…
