Where does the time go?

Time seems like it flies by anymore.  My new job is going well and I really do enjoy it, but must admit that I miss being at home with my little boy.  Talk about heartache…. I find myself thinking about him at certain times during the day.  I think to myself that I would be picking him up from pre-school at this time, hearing all about his day at this time, enjoying lunch with him and maybe even possibly taking a nap (lol).  Wow, what I wouldn’t give for a good nap right now and more time during the day.  Don’t get me wrong….. I love my job and I work with some great girls, but I sure do miss being at home and being that stay at home Mom.  I flip through my favorite magazine A Primitive Place during lunch time and think about what I could be doing with my house, look at my pictures on my cell phone and think about when I took that certain picture with my little man and my heart just aches.  Did I really think it was going to be that difficult?  Sure I did, but I guess I just thought that maybe I would be getting use to things.  It is only day 3 of my 2nd week so maybe it will take more time.  It will certainly take more time to mend my broken heart, but I pray every single day that it will get easier for me.  Cameron on the other hand is doing great.  He is preparing for his Christmas play and it sounds like he will be singing We Wish You A Merry Christmas and Jingle Bells or at least that is what he has been singing so I think that will definitely be on the list.  I myself can hardly wait and will be in the front row with my camera and extra batteries in hand.  Yep, I am one proud Mommy!!

Did I mention to you all that I received yet another award?  This award is from The Guide to Art Schools and my blog was rated as one of the Top 50 Antique Blogs.  Pretty neat ~huh?  If you go to Guide to Art Schools then you will see that I am rated # 38.  So, thank you very much for all that voted for me and for my blog.  It means alot!!


I know alot of you have sent me e-mails lately and if I haven’t responded in a quick manner then I apologize.  Things have been hectic and I am sure you understand, but I get so frustrated that I can’t get back to everyone as fast as what I would like.  Anyway, be watching your mailboxes and hopefully I can respond back to everyone by this weekend.  So, have you been anxious to see what I am working on or what I have found lately?  Well, I recently finished up my last order for this year.  Effective immediately I will not be taking anymore orders until the New Year.  Here is my latest…..


A customer and sweet friend was looking for a game-board for her sister.  She stated that her sister loved George and Abe so I thought of this and put them both together to make one great game-board.   Oh and wait til you see my latest and greatest find.  I picked this up at a 2nd hand store and though it had great potential of course after a great paint job (lol).  Here it is and can you believe I only paid $4.99 for it?



Yep, with some black paint and a little repairing on the ladder back part of the chair…. it will be as good as new and perfect for one of my prim dolls.  So, do you think it is a keeper?  I sure do think so.  Well, I better get off this computer for now.  I have to get a little boy in the bath tub and tons of other stuff and I totally feel like the clock is right by my ear going TICK TOCK TICK TOCK.  So, I am going to sign off for now, but I will be back soon.  Sure do miss talking with all of you gals.

Until Next Time ~ Blessings Always!
