Well, lets see, I have been married to my high school sweet heart for twenty four years. We have four children, two boys and two girls, and we just became grandparents for the first time. We have a beautiful granddaughter named Alli. I have been a stay at home mom for twenty three years. I have always loved antiques and recently fell in love with primitives. So last year I bought an Antique and Primitives shop in down town Pilot Mountain, NC. I love it. I also home school my children. So, now I am a very, very, busy mom and business owner.
Hi everyone, It has been a long time since I have been able to get on and chat. I promised some fall pictures. I have been so busy with the shop. We have had a car show this month, and this weekend we're having a Pilot Festival. It's kinda like a little fall festival. It takes a lot of time to keep the shop in good shape and keep it stocked. I love this time of year. I have corn stalks in the shop with pumpkins, handmade scarecrows, witches and hay. I think it looks great. I had about 20 pumpkins go out today. My family has a good friend that grows pumpkins, he has about 75 acres. My daughter Emily and I went Monday of this week and picked. It was so much fun. These cool days are great, but I will be glad to see the sunshine again, we've had lots of clouds and rain. I hope when it clears up, It will be beautiful Carolina skies and a cool nip in the air. I hope you all like the pictures. Chat later, Tammy
Hi Everyone, It's been awhile since I have been on to talk. I have been so busy in the shop getting all the great fall items out. I will post pictures tomorrow. I worked in the shop about sixty hours week before last. This week I am trying to get all of my home school supplies together. I home school my youngest daughter. I really enjoy it, but it is a job. I have had so many wonderful people come in the last few weeks that have found me on the blog. I love meeting new people. Gina from Painters Place was one of the ladies I got to meet. She is so nice. Her mom won a door prize from my fall preview day. Check out her blog spot. I also had a lady from South Carolina come up. Her and her husband where on a weekend get away. It was a delight to meet her. Well, I'll talk tomorrow and add some pictures. Hope you all have a blessed day. Tammy
Hi Everyone, Hope your all having a good day. Well, I am trying to get ready for fall. It's hard to think about fall, when it is still summer. I have found out that you have to be ahead of the seasons to be ready. I am planning a big summer clearance sale on August 1st. We are having our next car show in town that same day. I thought that would be a good time to have the sale. I will also have a lot of my fall items out for that day. I am very excited about the fall, it is my favorite time of the year. I love all the warm colors, and I just love the mums, pumpkins, corn stalks and hay. Well we will talk about all of that later. Talk soon, Tammy
Let's Talk, It's been a great week so far. I had a very busy day yesterday at the shop. There where lots of people out. It was the best Wednesday I have had in awhile. Last time I talked, I was heading home to can green beans. I canned 14 quarts. I still have more to do. Last year I canned 75 quarts. I don't think I'll need so many this year. My husbands grandmother and mom have always been the ones to do all the canning. Last year was the first year I did it on my own. I was so proud of my accomplishment. I also did my own tomatoes and squash. After I was done canning I went to water my flowers, I thought I would take a few pictures and share them with you all. I love to garden. I got that from my grandmother. She always had the prettiest flowers I had ever seen. Her geraniums where huge, her secret was miracle grow every other day. I miss her a lot, she passed away three years ago. When I see my flowers looking so pretty, I think of her. I am so glad she taught me how to garden. Hope you enjoy my pictures.
Hi Everyone, I am so excited, I have followers for my blog spot. It is nice to meet all of you. I hope everyone had a great 4th of July. It was a beautiful weekend for picnics and cookouts and best of all fireworks. Of course my 4th was spent in the shop working. We had a huge car show in town. We had a great time meeting lots of new people and seeing all the great old cars. Most of my family spent the evening in the shop helping me out. We all love spending time together as a family even when we work. I had a lot of people coming in and out all day. It was a great day! I closed at 9:00. We all went out to eat and watched fireworks. The rest of the weekend was spent relaxing and catching up on some needed rest. This week I will be canning green beans. I started yesterday, stringing and breaking. When I get off this afternoon It will be time to start canning. I hope you all have a very blessed day Talk Later, Tammy
Hi, It is Tuesday, I am having a hard time getting started today. I have a million things to do. Our town is having its monthly car show this weekend on the 4th of July. It will be very busy. Last week I was in Pennsylvania visiting relatives, I went antique shopping and I have a van full of great things to put out. I wish I had took a trailer, we found some wonderful places to shop. Some places had some wonderful cabinets I really wanted. My husband told me he was sorry, but we could not strap them on the top of the van, ha! ha! Well guess I will get busy. Talk Later
Hi , It's finally Friday, I have had a great week, lots of people have been in the shop. I have added some pictures of the shop to the blog. I have everything fixed for the 4th of July, RED,WHITE and BLUE. I hope everyone has a beautiful weekend. Tammy
