~Oktoberfest is 5 Days Away~


I’ve been away from my blog for a little bit…there is a lot going on in our lives right now.

My father-in-law’s health has taken a turn downhill and he is now very weak. We have been going up to my in-laws home as much as we can to help out…they live an hour away from us. Our whole family has put many things into place to help him to be able to stay in their home with my mother-in-law for a while longer. Then yesterday…we got a phone call letting us know that our brother-in-law’s brother had a massive heart attack while they were out hunting in the woods yesterday. Haven’t heard any updates yet, but I’m sure praying that he will be okay.

Plus my youngest daughter and my sister have had the flu for the last few days…and I had been around both of them. So hoping that I don’t get it as my next show is only 5 days away. I’ve been spending every moment at home on making new necklaces to replace some that sold at the last show.




I still have more necklaces to finish up. Plus…I’ve also been crocheting some ruffled scarves to replace some that I sold at the last show and little Zoey thought she should model it for you.


It is very gloomy looking outside today…like it could rain at any minute, but not a drop of rain yet. The rain seems to all be North East of us. Since there is no sun today…I decided to turn on a few lights.

Living Room…had to pull the blind down to get a good picture of it. Just order this farmhouse style light last week…from LTD Commodities for only $19.00.


Kitchen Light….had this rooster light in my kitchen for years.


Another Kitchen Light…got these little mason jar lights a few years ago from a local shop and I just love the look of them.


Well…it is back to making necklaces for the show.

Until next time…….       farmhouse blessings from me to you, Cindy

    Hi Cindy, I am so sorry your FIL is so weak now and not improving and also my prayers for your bil’s brother to recover from his heart attack. So sorry your kids have the flu and I hope you stay well with your show coming up.
    Love your lamps and your new one looks great in your living room. Love the rooster lamp and the garland of mason jars is awesome.
    Your home must be so cozy when the days are dark and gloomy.

    Have a great show and stay well. Prayers come your way.

    Hi again, forgot to say how much I love your necklaces. They are all so unique and Zoey is a great little model for your scarf. It’s so pretty!

    I’m so sorry to hear about all of the health problems going on in your family. Sometimes, it seems that when it rains it pours! Do your daughter and sister have the flu that people are getting vaccinated from right now? That sure seems early! I just got my flu shot today too. I get it every year and so far it has done the trick! I hope that you’re able to make it to the festival this weekend.

    Prayers going out for your FIL and also hoping Laura and your sis get to feeling better fast. Love your lamps and that little strand of the mini canning jar lights are really cute the way you have them! The necklaces are very unique……love them and the scarf, too. Have a great show!
