The last couple of days in Central VA.
have awaken the desires for fall.
I love the color of the sky...
hint of smoke
Who can't love those colors?
Where we are in our little town of Monroe
there are about half dozen orchards!!
One of them happens to be located just down the
road from us...
crisp fresh apples
tart and sweet
dripping with goodness...
ready for my decorating desires
Our next show is the Gathering in
I am sure that there will be plenty of fall
decorating at that show
to fill my heart!!
Enjoy your cooler temps...
have a blessed tomorrow.

The mister has to have hip replacement...yeah
and he is not moving as fast as he once was...
But he is being a trooper and trying very hard to
work through the pain. I thinks he is going to
try for the first of the year...maybe by then the doctor
will do it.

So I started with this...
and finished with this...
Each is an old apple crate and a little cloth at the bottom.
Finally...a place for all of the
magazines of my life.
Love the bright touch in the middle.
So, what I did today??
Played in grunge mixture.
These are the checkbook covers.
Just gotta add a little something...
How to cover up the white white white tags..
just paint with the grunge mix.
I hate those stark white price tags...
so I just add a little grunge and let dry...
they stick perfect!!
Just a little something I made for the fireplace.
Our visit with Barbara Rice and Jerry was perfect!
We had so much fun.
You will just have to wait friends!
Getting ready for
Whispering Pines Antiques and Artisans Show
Hope you can join us.
Life is good...Enjoy It...

Howdy folks...come take a small tour...
Mr. Millstone has since hung my big ole sign for me
above the squeaky screen door.
It lets me know that you have come in for a visit.
Come take a quick glance at the Farmers Market.
Fresh sewn watermelon
I love my little red wagon...
right now its for display only until Christmas..
then MAYBE after the Open House I will let her go!
Love Primitives goods...
trace of blue
trace of red...
all are my favorites.
Look how bright that watermelon is..
love the look of just tossing it into an old bowl.
Made in America signs..
doesn't get much better.
I am having a love affair with the old labels...
this one I fixed into a chocolate box.
A sweet door box with geraniums and one of my flags
add to the country charm of summer.
I so hope you enjoyed your little tour...

Did you know that I have not been on here in over a month...
Geez...time sure does go quick.
Here is a little look from the Knoxville show
Love this southern cupboard...it found a new home
Sweet table on a few make -do chairs..
they all found new homes...
yep even the orange carrier found a new home.
Love this little red wagon I found for my pillows...
this came home with me and is now in the front window of my shop.
Sweet mantel that Mr. Millstone built out of old shutters.
Now for the stocked shop...
come on in
Cute grouping...I think
Come up on the porch...
the sap buckets have all found new homes...
but they were pretty cool.
Another inside...kinda got out of order..
Well now you are pretty much caught up on what I have been doing..
except that I will tell you that I have
Barbara Rice from Olden Days coming for a visit
on Memorial Weekend!!! I can't wait to spend the weekend with
her...so look for Millstone in her magazine soon!!
We are now planning a very hectic show schedule that will start in June
and end in Dec.
How fun is that!!!! Love preparing for shows...
What have you all been doing since I went missing.
Hope you are enjoying spring like weather instead of snow!!
Blessings to you...
