Where Has the Summer Gone?

August 11, 2011 - 5:12 pm No Comments

Can you believe it’s August already?  How did that happen?

This is the first year that I don’t have to shop for school supplies or clothes, I’m not sure how I feel about that.  Of course  I’m glad that I don’t have to spend all that money, but my babies are all grown up.  It’s going to be strange seeing the the buses and kids out and about and not be a part of it.  Before you know it, it will be Fall and the leaves will be changing.  With Fall comes football!  I like college the best, but watch NFL if the right teams are playing.  Yes, I live in Ohio.  No, I’m not a Buckeye fan.  With all that has happened to OSU this year, I wonder how they’ll do this year.  Who will be the best team in the Big 10?  I think Nebraska might have a shot.  How weird is it that Nebraska is now a part of the Big 10 now?  Since Michigan hasn’t been doing very well for a while, I might have to root for Nebraska.  

Another thing that happens in the Fall is my new favorite holiday…..Halloween!  Halloween was always fun when I was growing up, but I never really got in to it as an adult.  That all changed the first time I went to Ghoultide with my sister!



My sister, Connie Porcher, publishes the magazine Celebrate 365.  She features a lot of the folk-artists, like Nicol Sayre, Lori Rudolph and Scott Smith, and goes there to take pictures and discover what new artist.  Last year we had a booth in the “General Store” where she sold copies of her Halloween edition of the magazine, past and present.  We’ll be selling magazines again this year, but in a different location.  Because Ghoultide Gathering has become so popular, it has become a two day event!  It is in Northville, Michigan September 30 and October 1.  I hope to see you there!


You will find a large selection of Halloween items in my store, including jewelry by John Wind, K&K, Debbee Thibault and Art by Amy.  I will have some folk art and decorations arriving soon from Nicol Sayre, Elaine Roesle and others, so check back often!

I just love technology!  While checking out Amazon to update my wish list for Christmas I found out some new “toys”.  You can now add an icon to your toolbar that allows you to add items from other websites to your Amazon list.  That’s not all!  They also have an application that allows people to add an “Amazon Wish List” button to thier personal website!  Thanks to Leslie, my web Goddess, I now have that button on my Willow Springs store!!  Come look and try it out! 

Whether it’s jewelry from John Wind Maximal Art or Art by Amy, you can add it to your Amazon list.  Add items from Christina’s World or other ornaments and decorations too.  Now, while shopping for your friends and family,  you can let them know what they can get for you!  If you don’t already have a wish list set up on Amazon, it’s simple to do.  Once you have it set up, just start adding all the things that you would like as gifts.  Your friends can go to Amazon and find you wish list and never have to guess what to get you again!  How Cool is That?!!

Ornament Sale!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Halloween.  I’m already counting the days until next year! 

As we move toward Thanksgiving and the beginning of the holiday shopping season, I have decided to kick things off with a sale!  I have a great selection of small ornaments and finials from Christina’s World and I have lowered the prices for a limited time–until 11:59pm Friday, November 19th–to make them even MORE affordable!  From traditional reflectors to Santas and everything in between, these ornaments are the perfect size for your table-top feather tree and would also be beautiful on the family tree.  Ornaments make great gifts and, at these prices, are perfect to keep on hand for ”emergencies.”  Get them before they are gone! 

And speaking of gifts, make sure you check out the selection of John Wind jewelry!  Items have recently been added and there are more to come soon!

Time is Running Out!
