Meet Sally.....

She's a rescue from my mother/father-in-laws garage. She just showed up there! And since we brought her home, another one has shown up in their garage but no one has been able to get hold of it.  We're guessin' that someone just dumped them off at the railroad tracks.
It took a couple of days but she has finally warmed up to us.  She stays outside with took a little while for Belle to warm up to her but they're okay now!  And I hope that Belle teaches her her mousin' skills!

She's still not too sure about Lucy! I can't believe she actually let Lucy get that close to her without havin' a hissin' fit! 

So how goes it in your world? Been a busy week for me but caught a little break this afternoon!  I'm gradually getting some work caught up and hope to move on to some fun work in my "free" time here pretty soon! Mercantile open house is just a few weeks away and all I have to take in are a few leftovers from last year! Yikes!

Hope you all are enjoying these beautiful fall days......We really need to go cut some wood and get this fireplace ready!  Anyone wanna come join the party?

Have a GREAT Friday!

Good Morning.....

WOW! Where does the time go?  Seems like I ask myself that question every other day! October 8th already....we will turn around and it will be Halloween....Thanksgiving.....CHRISTMAS!  Adults told me when I was younger not to rush time because it would pass by quickly enough the older one gets! They weren't kidding!
So where have I been? to of not of posted in so long.  LIFE!  It happens.  I've been working more outside the home and once I get home I'm still busy getting things caught up around the house or too tired to do much of anything.  I've had an overload of sewing come in and been trying to get that caught up.  We did manage to take our little mini-vacation to Fayetteville, AR for the Bikes Blues & BBQ rally last weekend! I'll post more on that another day.  
Finally made progress with the bathroom.....still working on a couple things and it will get there eventually, but this is what it looks like for now....

You see I have not added the H-D border (still undecided about that) and I've not gone over-the-top with the H-D things....I wanted to keep it simple with just a few accents.  They're not in this photo, but there are pictures hanging of us on the three Harley's we've had over the past several years. 
I spray painted the hinges on the cabinet and closet doors and changed all door pulls and doorknobs.  Lighting changed out, cupboard painted, carpet ripped out and replaced with tile.  I painted the baseboard heater black (still there because we still use it when we are burning the fireplace).
Maybe this weekend I'll get around to painting that last piece of baseboard trim to be put on and get the chain I want to use for the curtain tie-backs.
Well I'd better get on with my day....I'm lookin' at a day at the sewing machine, finishing a flowergirl dress and altering the mother-of-the-bride dress for a wedding next weekend!
Hope you all have a wonderful day!
