July 22, 2011 Another Farmer's Market

     Well, sorry to be so long in writing. I just have not had much positive to say!!! My good news is that I am invited to do another Coooper-Young Community Farmer's Market Tomorrow, Saturday July 23, 2011 at the First Congo Church on Cooper at Walker!! 8 a to 1 pm. I am exited about it and since I did it once before I am not as apprehensive as I was last time.
     An old friend just asked me if I was still writing since he remembers me years ago writing in my journal. I told him about my blog and then I realized it has been awhile so I decided to jot something down quickly!!!
     I hope everyone is staying as cool as possible. I have a small above ground 8'x12' pool in my backyard and it is my favorite pastime these days!! I try to do all errands very early in the morning and then retreat into the AC for the duration!!That is another good thing about the Farmer's Market. They open at 8 am and close at 1pm so it is over by the time the heat becomes unbearable.
       I have yet to make my first Etsy sale But I did make my first Etsy buy. I purchased a Heartsy Coupon for $15.00 and got $31.00 worth of handmade soap!! The soap arrived today and was very nice!! I am a Happy customer. Now let's make me a Happy Vendor!!!LOL
Here is the link!

Thanks to all my followers and Love to everyone, misty

July 5, 2011 ~ Back to Reality

The Holiday is over and I am glad. I think as I get older I am more dependant on a routine. I was never like this when I was in my early twenties. I lived from one day to the next and I never knew or cared what was happening next or for how long!! Just as long as I was having "fun!"
   Now I feel comfortable doing the same things each day. Cooking, cleaning, even doing laundry have a pleasant familiarity!! . Lucky for me there is plenty of that crap to do around here!!LOL
   Today my neice Amanda called and asked  me to pick up her two children, my great neice and nephew, Saffron 13 and Kahlil 11, from the firehouse. They are in summer camp at the "Arts Afire" Black Alliance For the Arts, summer drama camp! It was fun to see fhem. I used to see them more when they were younger and needed more supervision. They are beginning to gain their independance and although I am happy for their acheivements I still miss having them around. I never had children of my own so I am very gratefull to be included in any of their activities.
      I photographed and listedseveral pairs of earrings today, but I did not get a chance to makeany new ones. Maybe tomorrow!! I am closing now to get some rest and watch a movie on theROKUbox!!!
Remember to checkout the etsy shop

July 2, 2011 Happy 4th of July

Hello Everyone, How are you this Holiday Weekend!! It is hot again here in Memphis TN and everyone is grillin' and chillin'. Of cxourse Memphis is known for barbeque so this is a favorite holiday around here. I am mostly a vegetarian and salad person, but I have been known to partake!!
     My latest adventure in earrings was yesterday when I made some pretty Star of David earrings with swarovski crystal accents. I also made some pretty yellow beaded loop earrings that remind me of summer. The photo shows them with the cucumber blossom in my garden.
The hot weather is a friend to the cucumber famiy but not the tomato. I have very few tomatoes and the plants are just not as lush as they have been in past years. I water every evening .
      For some reason our cat ,Calsey, loves the water. She sits by the hose each day waiting for me to turn it on. Then she wades in the water and sits in the middle of the large puddle on a brick dangling her tail in the water!! She will just look at me as if to say, "What are you looking at? Haven't you ever seen a cat in the water ????"
So, enouph of my ramblings, I hope you have a great holiday !!! Check out the etsy store, Love misty714
