Happy Birthday Mom...Misty for You

My Mom, Theresa Yori,  passed away December 28, 2012. We buried her after New Year this year.  Today is her birthday. October 28th...It would have been her 85th birthday.."Misty" was her favorite song. She could belt this song out just as well as any professional singer. She had such a beautiful deep vibrant voice. I vividly remember hearing Mom sing that song all during my childhood.  After she died, we found an audio tape with her on it. It was taped during a New Year's Party with her family. She was singing it. It was so beautiful.

After we discovered it, Dad kept listening to it over and over again. At one point, he called me upset because he inadvertently recorded over part of it. I knew I should have taped over the record button so he couldn't do that. But at any rate, maybe Mom just wanted to keep that song private for her and Dad. Who can blame her?

Mom, I know we didn't always see eye to eye on things and our relationship was always rocky but today I'm misty for you. I hope you are singing this to Dad today on the otherside. I know he really missed hearing you sing it and he would have preferred to have you sing it to him in person and now that is possible ...... Happy Birthday Mom.

Winter's Coming...Fall is Here!

Well it's Fall. It feels like it here. For a long while it was an extended summer which was okay by me but it didn't make me want to get my butt in gear for the craft shows and events.  I did manage to come through as I generally do.

There will be new porcelain and lots of new decorative painted items. Like this cute little nutcracker snowman ornament.  I've also made more jewelry, cards and painted 6 canvas Christmas stockings to just name a few things.

My crafty friends have worked hard on having an incredible variety for this season. I'm excited to go just as a shopper! I plan to starting my Christmas shopping there.

So drop by for the craft show this coming weekend. Here's the flyer!

I would love to see you there.....oh and my Etsy team is hosting their Winter's Coming Celebration.  If you are in love with Prim or Cottage, you really need to check out my team.

It's called Old Farmhouse Gathering Team. Search everyday for OFG Team on Etsy. But if you want to see some awesome crafts just for the winter season, search on Monday for WCCOFG on Etsy.  I had the pleasure of checking out the new items when I uploaded my photos. There are some beautiful pieces on there and I plan to do some Christmas shopping here too!
