Thought I dropped off the end of the Earth ? Well, I did not. I have been busy this past month. Just like alot of you, I am sure. Last minute vacations, getaways, school shopping, Doctors, and so on......

Well, Yes, I have had some of that too... But, I quit smoking Aug. 1, 2008 ( that was very hard.) My daughter turned 21 ! My husband and I took her to her first bar outing. ( Yah, RIGHT !!!) The work we planned for the house this year is almost done. We watched both Dem. and Rep. Conventions. How about that Sarah???

And I did alot of thinking about my Antekin. I have decided to close the web store. ( Kinda of). I will be offering for sale one maybe three, high quality items dear to my heart every month instead. I have thought this thru, and decided, that a special, very special item would spark a must have, than an offering of many, seen that before items.
So, keep an eye out and let me know if you are intrested.

I also am excited to share with you, I'm PUBLISHED!!!!!

Well, kinda of. I sent a pic of that chair I re-did to Country Living, and they published it. With the pic and half of my letter missing! But, I do not care. I"m PUBLISHED in the 2008 Oct. Issue!!!!

Some day, you can all say, " I knew her when!!""" HA HA HA LOL!!!!

To celebrate my one year anniversary to blogging, I will be giving away a small token, To THANK YOU ALL!!! for visiting with me. Stay tuned!!

Congrats on your big debut!

I hope things slow down for you soon, I have missed you.

And a HUGE congrats on quiting smoking, I imagine that had to have been very difficult, and will be for a while yet.

My grandma quit 15 years ago and she says she still has that overwhelming urge sometimes. It's a huge dragon to slay, one that doesn't like to stay dead.
