Owning a gift shop for the past 17 years has been one of the highlights of my life. After traveling over the road 14 years prior doing crafts and making everything from bears to birdhouse lamps I decided it was time to come off the road. Mr. P. was delighted to say the least. The first year after doing one of the largest shows I'd ever done in Fort Scott, Kansas I took the plunge and opened the doors to a some what might I say "empty" shop. The fever took and I've been at it ever since.
Happy November everyone! Did you have lots of trick or treaters last night? Can you even believe October has come and gone? I know many of us say it, boy this year has sure flown.
I haven't taken off and gone for just a ride in a very long time, usually I have a purpose in mind. This particular day I grabbed the camera, off I went. I took many pictures that sunny afternoon, I'll share just a highlight of my day.
Our small town of a little over 6000 residents is the county seat established in 1827. The court house is one of stature. Each year as fall approaches the trees share their beautiful foliage with all of us.
We live a roller coaster ride of ups and downs around here. With all of Mr. P's illness' and trying to run the Gift Shop my life can get a little crazy at times. With the ups and downs we face I try to keep a firm upper lip and a smile on my face. We love when you stop by and leave your sweet comments. Please have patience with me coming by to visit you, it may take me a while, but rest assured I'll get there. Thanks so much for you understanding and continued support.
