My Sis's New Venture!

Can I tell you how amazed I am with all the talent one of my sisters has...and her friends too?!!   Well, first of all, she's an artist - and a very good one at that! - and she has some really fun, talented friends who all have unique abilities.  Put them all together and you get "4 Quarters Timeless Vintage"!  A great little shop in Cottlesville MO that's just like a "real life Pinterest store"!   The 4 girls, Marian, Misty, Janet & Sandy, were recently featured on a St. Louis TV station.   Check out their Facebook page, Twitter account AND their new blog:  http://4quarterstimelessvintage.blogspot.com/

 You'll be saying "WOW" too when you see all the goodies they have to offer! 

(There's your plug girls, you can pay me in merchandise!!  teehee)

Summer Wrap-up, Fall Beginnings

Ahh it's been awhile since I've posted (like over a year!!)  LOTS has happened since the passing of my beautiful German Shepard Kazmir.  And, NO, we did not get another dog - yet!

Left her brother, Justice, in the great care of my friends Dave and Kay Rumple while I went to Colorado w/my hubby and stepson. What a BEAUTIFUL state Colorado is - especially in the summer. There's just so much to do and so many gorgeous sights that my eyes could scarely take it all in! The mountains, the flowers, the rushing creeks, the animals and most of all - the clean, fresh AIR!  Took awhile to get used to the altitude but after that, I couldn't breathe that freshness in fast enough!

Upon our return home, we hurried to ready the house and the yard for a wedding! That's right, a wedding! It turned out marvelous - the day was warm, sunny and the landscaping finished..in the nick of time!  I know it's a day that neither Brian nor myself will ever forget - let alone the bride and groom! 

Then comes Birthday MONTHS. Yes, we celebrate all month long - first Brian then me!  As this was a 'Big' birthday for me, my hubby threw a surprise party - and boy WAS it a surprise!  I actually thought I was going to a business dinner with a number of business owners only to find out the guest of honor was ME! 
Don't ask me how many people were there cuz I couldn't begin to tell you - I just kept seeing all the people I knew and love, including my famly who drove 6 hours to be there for the "big" event! And my Big Bday present to myself was a 12 day tour thru Sicily and southern Italy!!  Details will be coming soon - and pics too!
