We are experiencing the most beautiful weather for March here in Michigan.

We are working on a Grand Opening for “THE  SHOPPE” here in Dowagiac.

Cleared out, culled out, moved out lots of “ things” yesterday and today  is…



Just bought a lighted electric outdoor sign  and got it ready..

Today is balloon day !!

We are so eager to have lots of customers today !!


We have been sewing lots of totes, aprons, hot dish mats and much more !!

Janette is doing fantastic with her sewing lessons !!

She is such a fast learner and soooooooooooo neat !!

Makes me embarrassed to show my contributions…

Going out of the doll business…. well, maybe almost out….

Gonna ‘ throw ‘em all in a big wooden box and put a

dolls fer sale cheap

sign on it ….

and hope for the best… LOL

We have some new pieces of furniture.. well, not new but new antiques ~~

Went to  Joann’s in Benton Harbor last week and boy .. oh boy,

did we ever stock up on sewing supplies and the neatest

pattern book ( too exspensive, ugh!!) but has the most beautiful

patterns in it…. ( worth every penny… or dollar )


The creek is so beautiful with all the light winds and sunshine

and birds of every kind singing and eating seeds so fast I

can’t keep the feeder full…

but I’m lovin’ it !


well I hate to tell this …. but I have a bladder infection

and on meds…. so hoping to be able to be in the Shoppe today..

So if you will offer up a prayer for me today, I will love you forever for it !!!


We’re hoping for a “good –day” today and I know it will be for…

this is the day that the Lord hath made “

so we will rejoice and be glad in it !!


Till next time..
