Experimenting with Photos

Celtic Moonspice 16 Oz Candle $14

I'm at it again, playing with my photos, in search of the elusive 'perfect' picture setup....if such a thing exists. Photo taking has always been the bane of my existence. However, I vow to master it some day! This time I tried a black background. I have long given up on white backgrounds....I can never get them white, they're always blue or grey, and I don't have the expertise to use something much fancier for photo editing than the picture editor that comes with my computer. So here it is, what do you think? I was concerned the black may be too much, but I think it goes with my look, don't you?

By the way, this is my new Celtic Moonspice scent. I've added a bunch of new items this weekend, so stop by my shop and check them out!

Why Hello Stranger!

It's been so long since I've posted! We...ok ok, *I*...there was no "we" involved.... rescued a new puppy from some mean people at Walmart. That was almost 3 months ago. Isn't he adorable? He's sporting his Holy Cow collar by the fabulous Jennie B. Goode. His name is Pirate. (We already have Mama Poochins, whose name is Pearl a.k.a. The Black Pearl, so it was only fitting that we have a piratey name for this little guy!)

It's getting to be that time of year that I love...fall and Halloween! Now if only the weather would follow suit! There's lots of new things in my shops, because you know how much of a Halloween fanatic I am! Be sure to stop by and say "hey", I've missed you all!

Jewel's Hope Fundraiser

Meet Jewel. Isn't she adorable? She's four. Jewel has Cerebral Palsy. Please check out my soy candle fund raising listing and purchase a candle to help Jewel get her surgery!

Read more about Jewel!!
Here's a little excerpt from Jewel's blog:

"I was born on October 16, 2005, 12 weeks too early. I only weighed 2 lbs. 9 oz. Now, I'm four years old, and have grown SO much! I'm beautiful, crazy smart, and I have cerebral palsy. My legs don't work like the other kids' legs do. I want to run with my big brothers and dance ballet like my big sister, but my brain doesn't send the right messages to my legs. I've worked really hard in therapy for years, but it's still just not enough. I need a little bit more... 300 miles away, at the St. Louis Children's Hospital, there's a doctor who can help me. He can perform surgery on my nerves so that they stop sending the wrong signals and I can learn to walk. My family and I are beginning an adventure that will change all of our lives. We just need your prayers and support to get us there. Wait and see, I'll be running all over the place soon! Look out world, here I come!"

Jewel's Mom and Dad need some help with this and you can go to Jewel's Blog to find out more. If you are feeling extra generous (and please, feel extra generous), you can follow the link that's there, and it will take you to PayPal, where an account has been set- up to assist with covering the costs of this very important surgery.

This isn't a miracle cure for Cerebral Palsy. But it is a miracle. It is a MIRACLE that there is a doctor in St. Louis who can give a little girl the chance to walk. To run. To play like a child who hasn't had to always overcome real challenges.

Jewel has a cute pink wheel chair.
But wouldn't it be better if she didn't need to use it anymore??

A Brief Intermission....While We Have a Car Fire

I'm so sorry I missed drawing the blog giveaway winner yesterday my loyal readers!! I am going to let this week's contest go another week, and I will draw the winner next Sunday, June 6th. And then we'll proceed as if we never missed a beat! :)

Needless to say, it was a very "Memory filled" Memorial Day..and I don't mean that in a good way. This is our 2000 GMC Jimmy. We were riding in down the street when it suddenly started shooting flames out the back, which luckily I noticed quickly in the rear view mirror. I mean how can you not notice flames that big? Anyway, nothing like running for your life while watching the car you were just riding in become engulfed in flames to get the adrenaline pumping.....

This is the front seat where my oldest and I were sitting....

And this is the seat my two youngest were sitting in. I am thanking God right now that we're all here to tell about it. I'm also glad I didn't have any kids in car seats, I'm not sure I could have gotten to them in time, it happened so fast.

Scary Sh*t folks.....

Fuel system is the suspect cause.......
