Looks like summer is coming to an end soon, school starts back here next week, already started back keeping Oliver this week, his mom went back to school getting ready for her 5 years to come next week.  With school starting that means fall is not far off, my favorite time of the year, cooler weather and lots of fall decorating.  My living room looks like fall has exploded in there, bins full of fall items ready to find that perfect place, and of course I have already been fall shopping, like I needed another pumpkin,  OK can't help my self, I have this thing for pumpkins, LOL.  Speaking of I have been busy the last few weeks getting orders ready for shipping and also working on a few items for tonights Early Work Mercantile update, the little pumpkin boy here will be there as well as a few other fall goodies, hope you can stop by later this evening and take a peak.  Will be back a little later with a sneak peak at my fall decorating.  Everyone take care, Vicky

Fall Preview

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer, hot and dry here, looking forward to a cool front that is coming, this time of the year I am wanting fall to come, I enjoy that time of the year the most.  Been doing a few things around the house not getting as much done as hoped, but we are about ready to paint the house, been needing it for awhile.  Then I am hoping to get a little painting done on the inside, the kitchen, sewing room and bath, and of course want to do a little decorating, have found some new goodies, have pushed some furniture around in the living room will share that soon.  I will be having an update with Early Work Mercantile later this evening hope you can drop by, here are a couple of items I have for this month.  Love the little pumpkin folk here, great for tucking in little places for fall.

Here are a few items that I have been working on for this months Early Work Mercantile.  I love decking my house out for all the seasons, in the summer I love finding blues and reds to tuck around my home.  I have been busy shifting furniture around and trying to redo a few rooms this summer, working in the kitchen and some painting on the outside of the house.  I have also been knee deep in my flower beds trying to get the mulch in now and then back in the house to finish up some decorating in there, will post some pictures when I am through.  I you have a moment drop by early works and check out these items plus a few more, everyone have a great weekend.  Hugs Vicky

Can you believe Oliver is turning 3, just seems like yesterday when we were called to come to the hospital they had sent Brandi up there to watch, something wasn't right. Little did we know Oliver was coming later that night weighing in at only 1 lb and 14 ozs, after three months in the hospital he was coming home.  Our little miracle baby is a happy, full of life 3 year old now, life is full of blessings.  Vicky

I hope everyone is getting a taste of spring, I know I was sure ready for winter to end, it was cold and long.  We are expecting some 30 degree temps here a couple of nights this week, but for the most part the trees and allergies are in full bloom.  I sure wish my flowers would grow as well as the weeds do in my beds, been out pulling all weekend, and need to do much more.  I love this time of the year playing in my flower beds, Oliver seems to really love flowers also, wants to pick them, planning on giving him an area to have a wild flower garden with lots to pick.  Well my New Beginnings is that Green Creek Primitives has joined Early Works Mercantile, starting April 15th we will be sharing our creations every month on the 15th.  The lil bluebird in the picture is actually part of a creation my sister, Lisa has come up with, hope you can stop by and check out what we have been doing.  I have some sad news also my friend Bonnie, she has the shop Primitive Gatherings, in Kingsport, Tn. is closing her shop. I went up recently to visit with her and of course check out her goodies in her shop, yes I came back with the van loaded, will share pics of my new goodies when I get them all up.  Hope everyone has a good week, thanks for stopping by and visiting with me.  Vicky
