The Humble Arts Group Launch on Ebay HARTS07

The Humble Arts is Celebrating a Red, White and Blue Summer!

I'm honored to be a new member of this wonderful group... and I was able to just squeak in at the last minute for their fun group launch on ebay.

I've offered up a Primitive Americana Flag on an Antique Single Tree but for even more fun, do a search for HARTS07 (or click the link there) for the other Gals Amazing items!

EARTHQUAKE!!!! Felt in Central Kentucky!

At 5:36 this morning the Earth really did move under my feet!

We're OK! Riley the Wonder Dog actually lifted her head up to see what was rattling!

The dishes rattled in the cupboards and it felt like a caravan of trucks, hauling logs were bouncing by my house.

CNN reports: There were no immediate reports of major damage after the predawn quake, which struck at 4:36 a.m. (5:36 a.m. ET), but some minor damage was seen in the region.

Debris fell on a sidewalk and shattered in Louisville, Kentucky, after part of a cornice fell off a brick building, according to footage from the city's CNN affiliate WHAS-TV.

The epicenter of the earthquake -- the strongest in the region in 40 years -- was about seven miles below ground and 38 miles north-northwest of Evansville, Indiana, the USGS said. Map »

Nearly 10,000 people had sent reports of shaking to the USGS Web site by 9 a.m. ET.

Count your Blessings... I'm going to today!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Life of Riley

This is the epitome of laziness... don't you agree?

I guess that's why she was named Riley.

Tweet Tweet Tweet

I'm in a bird mood these last couple days.... Getting out some cute calico's and making these little bird pinkeeps seemed to fit into Spring time here in Kentucky.

I'll be offering these little guys on both my website sometime today or tomorrow and also my update this month on TDIPT Mercantile on the 15th.

Now pardon me while I get back to making my little flock because there's 9 more that needs to be assembled.

Dogs are Nice People too!

I think my Alien has built in Puppy-radar.

The other day I sent her up to Odd Lots to get me a new oil cloth and she calls me on her cell phone. "MOM!!!! Want a 5 week old Black Lab/Basset Hound mixed puppy? This girl is up here at Odd Lots giving a bunch away for free!"

"If you bring another puppy home" (I say in my most stern Motherly voice) "... I will ground you! So just pet the little puppy and come home ALONE... And I MEAN it"

Half an hour goes by and I'm out back picking up some of the gazillion sticks in my yard... and here comes the Alien with this little black bundle of sweetness! OF COURSE I'm coo'ing and squealing... I take the puppy... giving him oodles of kisses and getting a puppy fix. (The stick picking up can wait)

After I come back to reality I say to the Alien... we aren't keeping him so I hope you found him a home. SHE DID! Her girlfriend would be taking him that evening after she got off work so we got to play with this little guy for about 5 hours!

He was so cute. But what was great is Riley the Wonder Dog took to that little pup like a big Sister. Riley shared all her toys and bones (like that huge one we bought her?) Riley's a good dog... well, until the little guy soiled on her blankie there. Riley wasn't too happy about that so what Riley did was drag that blankie over to the trash can. I guess that's her way of telling me something? Pish posh... a little Oxi Clean and it was good to go. :)

The little pup went to his new home that evening as promised, and is being loved to death. The Alien and her friend already have planned Puppy Day's to get Riley and him together. Too cute.

Riley leads a good example of sharing so I've gone ahead and extended that to all the people who've subscribed to my newsletter. I'm sharing a free shipping offer until Wednesday night, so if you aren't on my newsletter... and want free shipping.... sign up! I'll resend you the link to today's newsletter to get the code.
