Fall is almost here My Oh My ! ...New fall goodness ...


Well Fall is just on the horizon here in the Ozarks .. and we're expecting a beautiful changing of the colors this year. We've had a lot of late summer rain and most of the time come July through September we get a little or a lot dry .. this year it's beautiful and green and I think that's going to make for some beautiful fall colors now that the nights temps are cooling off .. I'm counting down the days of seeing those beautiful vivid crimson, and fiery colors throughout our Ozark Mountains .. 

So are you all decked out in you home sweet home for fall yet ? It seems no matter what direction I go these last few weeks it's impossible not to be surrounded by beautiful fall decor .. Abbey and I just finished up some of our Farmhouse Pumpkins, Fall Pillow Covers, and even a few of our Farm Girl Fancies Upcycled Flannel Shirts are now available in our Etsy shop .. not to mention both our shop spaces at Camp Flea Antique Mall...

Faith Makes things possible not easy ...





So So True ... I know several people going through some rough times right now .. and their Faith in God is what makes each day possible to get through even though the struggles they face feel overwhelming .. Being a Christian doesn't mean life will be a cake walk.. our God is bigger than that he uses the ups and downs in our lives to mold us and teach us if only we will seek to have a heart like his . If you're riding that rough road of life today .. remember 
 
Joshua 1:9 "Be Strong and courageous ! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go" ...
 
 Have a beautiful and blessed Sunday Y'all ..

Here we grow again ~ Our New shop space at Camp Flea Antique Mall

 A few months back Abbey and I talked about opening a 2nd shop space my storage was overflowing and screaming for a new shop space. .. we went to several local antique malls to see where a good spot we liked would be available. I found several cute places I liked but I kept thinking of all the extra work it was going to be hauling things to 2 different locations. While working at my shop space at Camp Flea Antique Mall the manager was measuring up the space directly across from mine and I inquired why it was being measured and it was because the people in it had given notice to move out and it was coming available ..Well that pretty much changed things for me... I could just expand my existing space right across the aisle and it would make it much simpler for this busy gal in the long run to have all her eggs in one basket so to speak. With Online Sales, Sewing, Painting , Making, and being on the road to gather up vintage goodness it really leaves very little time.. so the down side of taking a space somewhere else was the amount of extra work it would be always going in another direction and all the hauling in 2 different directions so this couldn't have come at a better time. 

We decided on a Farmhouse Camp and Cabin Style for our new shop since I had collected so much of it the past year ... 

We worked for the last 2 weeks getting the space ready ...

 


  
Well We finally finished our new shop space yesterday and it's open for shopping. We said Rustic Farmhouse Camp and Cabin .. and well here's our version of it.  We added the wood roof ... painted the walls a beautiful clean creamy white added rustic crown moulding and We love how it turned out. 







  
Our newest addition to our shop are the Amazing "Antique Candle Works " Candles. We have 8 and 16 oz Canning Jar Candles in 6 amazing scents ~ Autumn Leaves ~ Clean Cotton ~ Mommas Kitchen ~ Sweet Lemon ~ Southern Hospitality ~ and Apple Pickin' ~ .. it's hard to pick a favorite I love them all .. And we are thrilled to be the exclusive retailer in our region for Antique Candle Works.












  
We'll be adding our OOAK Fall Pillows by Thursday and still have a couple last minute touches to add .. We hope you all enjoy .. and our shop space across the aisle will be getting a facelift in the next few weeks so stay tuned for some more vintage fun .. Sweet Blessings .. Sara

Good Movies are hard to find ~ "The Guernsey literary and potato peel pie society"



 I don't know about you all but finding good movies can be hard in this day and age. Especially family friendly movies.

I tend to be drawn to the British shows like Pride and Prejudice ( I prefer the older version with Colin Firth) ..  Persuasion and Cranford etc. I did watch the series Downton Abbey ... I was so drawn to all the eras of clothing and life throughout the era's that were depicted. Several of the Cast Members that were in Downton Abbey also were part of a movie recently called "The Guernsey literary and potato peel pie society". I had read about a year ago it was coming out but forgot until someone on FB recently posted it. 



It actually turned out to be a good movie in my opinion. 

What's it about you ask ?

In 1946 a London-based writer begins exchanging letters with residents on the island of Guernsey, which was German-occupied during WWII. Feeling compelled to visit the island, she starts to get a picture of what it was like during the occupation. 
And
You'll find out about that literary and potato peel pie society when you watch it.

I enjoyed the story line and as always the acting was really superb .. I personally think the British actors are the best. But I know some would probably want to debate me on that point .. as I said it's a personal opinion. 

If you're concerned about content .. Overall 1 or 2 cuss words ( A**)  And one scene with an intoxicated man. two short lived fight scenes.  Nothing sexual in nature at all. 

Hope you all find it as delightful and enjoyable as I did ..
