Watching for Santa!

Time is ticking closer for Santa's return so leave the light on for the jolly 'ol elf!

The tree and decorations are out....

Get ready to set out the cookies and milk....

When our kids were little, we'd go over to the inlaws on Christmas Eve. On the way home, we'd see a star or light in the sky and point it out... "Oh No.... Is that Santa"! We better get you guys home and right in bed so he'll come! The excitement and squeals from the backseat are still such a wonderful snapshot memory!

TRACK SANTA HERE at Norad and play games

But let's not forget the REAL reason for Christmas... the birth of our savior, Jesus Christ! I pray you will all have a wonderful Christmas with family and friends. Cherish those little memories and traditions you create and keep alive.

If you have any Christmas memories or traditions you'd like to share....
I'd be honored if you'd leave a comment! 
Blessings my friends!

It's Been A Year....

A year ago today I got a call... one of those calls I've dreaded for years and thank God... never received... until this day. The call informed me that my husband had been in an accident at work. That he was being taken by ambulance to the hospital and I needed to get there pretty quick.

You see, he's an electrical lineman. That means dealing with the wires, cables, transformers, etc., that keep your lights turned on. Most people haven't a clue what kind of voltage these guys work with. On this particular day, while starting to work on a transformer that he was told was off, and showed all signs of being off... it blew.
It blew fire.
It blew fire in his face.
13,200 volts!
To give you a comparison, there's 120 volts when you turn on a light switch.

God was watching over him that day and spared his life. And many good things came from it like better safety measures at work, more checks and balances, fireproof outfits, etc.. and a lot more training for all. Now, my husband isn't a rookie at this profession. He's been doing it almost 20 years... but stuff happens.

So tonight we're having a celebratory dinner in his honor... to celebrate that he's still here with us, to laugh, joke and drive us all crazy at times!  LOL 

And this December, I'll still have the love of my life with me to celebrate 25 years of marriage.

We don't take the days for granted like we used to... don't you either!    :o)

Blessings my friends!

Barefoot Bucks

Now just what are Barefoot Bucks you ask? Well it's something new I thought I'd try for the month of September....

Every single purchase for every single WEEK during the month of September will go into my 'ol straw garden hat. (Yes, if you make more than one purchase, your name goes in every time!)

One winner will be chosen EACH WEEK and since there's 5 weeks in September.... FIVE WINNERS! That's $125.00 in merchandise I'm giving away!

A name will be drawn every week and the winner contacted to spend their Barefoot Bucks in any of the following places I sell:

* My Halloween and Christmas Shoppe on this blog
* My Barefoot Primitives Website
* My WSOAPP Shoppe
* My Kindred Sisters Shoppe
* My Etsy Store

What's the Value of each Barefoot Buck? $25.00!

So no matter which of the above places you purchase from, you may spend your Barefoot Bucks in any of these places as well! Your $25.00 will need to be spent in one shopping spree please, as I'm unable to divide it up into several purchases.

A new project.....

Nope, not a doll or critter this time folks... but a swing top! Our old one was tattered and plum done in, so I thought I'd save some money and attempt to make a new one. It took me longer by my procrastination and intimidation of this big project more than anything, but well, not half bad if I do say so myself. This one is made of canvas and after putting it on (and half way being shocked that it fit), it was sprayed with waterproofing and walla!

Now my husband seems to think I can reupholster our '55 Chevy ~~ NOT! ~~

Mid all the traffic of the way,
Turmoil without, within;
Make of my heart a quiet place,
And come and dwell therein.
                  ~ unknown

While looking through my Women's Devotional Bible out on the deck this morning, I came across this little poem and had to share.  Have a blessed day my friends!

“Be still, and know that I am God”

Change at CPLG

Search for us on eBay with these initials C&PLG

It has taken a bit of discussion and prodding but it looks like as of Feb 1st we will be using C&PLG as the new initials to type in the ebay search box and find our listings.

You see, for a very long time we have used CPLG and it worked like a charm.... until ebay made some changes in their search process. At first we noticed a few plumbing accessories mixed in with our handmades. It seems cplg is also the abbreviation for coupling, as in pipes. We wondered if "Garage Guy" (as we fondly nicknamed him ) noticed his pipe fittings were nestled among Raggedy dolls, stitcheries, candle mats, painted goodies etc. We joked that perhaps he would shop with us for his wife or girlfriend as he looked over his listings.

Then we noticed he had more listings than we did and it really cramped our advertising style! The group's wonderful handmade items were scatterd over a couple pages of nut tubes, PVC in assorted sizes, pipe fittings, valves, hose couplings and none of them primitive! lol

This was not the shopping experience we wanted for our wonderful customers and so we have decided on this little change. A few gals have already started using the new initials in their listing titles and we all plan on being on board by Feb 1st. So remember, when you are searching for wonderful handmade pretties type C&PLG in the search box on any ebay page and prepare to be delighted!
