**One More Day and Miss You's**

 Okay my sweet blogging friends, this is it until I am moved and settled into my new place. I am so excited but also a little nervous. There are big changes happening and I am not one that handles change easily! Please take care of yourselves and enjoy the last few weeks of Summer. I will miss all of you so much. When I get back I think we'll have to do a fabulous giveaway. So if your not a follower yet, join in so you can be entered in my giveaway when I get back.


I'm also excited to meet Beth Livesay the managing editor from Somerset Home. I'm going to be dropping off some of my jewelry to her to be considered for the next Jewelry Affaire magazine. Keep your fingers crossed. I just have to decide which one's to submit.





Talk to you soon, miss you all!
Bye.
Sincerely,
~Melinda

**3 More Days**


 Hey to all of my friends, I hope everyone is well. I'm good but having a hard time staying away from the computer and packing like I should be. I think I am addicted to blogger! Oh and Etsy! :) I know once I move Friday no more computer for a while. :( Thursday night the computer is being packed up.
I finally got the new Somerset Home magazine in the mail yesterday and it is just wonderful. I am so thrilled with my photos, they did a fabulous job. Thanks again to their wonderful editor Beth for including me, I am so honored!
When I am settled and back online, I have a fabulous interview to post for you. It's with the fabulous Laurie Anna from Laurie Anna's Vintage Home. If you haven't been to her blog you have to go. Her decorating style is amazing!!! She is getting ready to open her 2nd shoppe at the end of August, so I'll have some wonderful pictures of her new place. I can't wait to post about her!
Here are some teaser pictures of her lovely vacation home.

Well my sweet friends, I'm off to pack.


Have a great day everyone.

**Exciting News And Thank You's**

Wow!!!! I can't believe I logged on to my blog this morning and found I had 26 comments on the post I wrote yesterday!! I was flabbergasted!  I thought everyone was going to tell me to get over it, but all I heard was beautiful words of encouragement, as I should have expected from this wonderful group of people in blogland!! Thanks so much to everyone who commented, It really meant alot!! I will now get over it and not be sad over lost followers ever again, well, I'll try anyway! :~)  

Now on to some exciting news~
My home photos have been featured in the new Somerset Home Magazine!!! Can you believe it?!


I haven't seen it myself and I think there are only 1 or 2 pictures but I'm so happy anyway! I've already had a couple of people comment on it and tell me it looks great. My husband went to 4 different bookstores back home yesterday to find it and every single store was sold out. I guess I'll just have to wait until I get my copy sent to me at the end of August. 
I've been wanting to tell everyone about it since I was asked to participate in February, but I wasn't sure that they were going to use my photos until recently, but they did. Anyway, if you are lucky to find a copy, tell me how the photos look, I'm dying to know. Thank you Beth for being interested in my photos and truly honoring me by putting me in your fabulous magazine!!!

Well have a great day everyone, I'm off to do more packing and take care of my little sick pumpkins, I pray I don't catch what ever it is they have!
9 days and counting, yea!!!!!! 
Sincerely,
~Melinda

**Another One Bites The Dust**


 Well, I've lost another one!! Yesterday the friend count was at 181 and this morning it's down to 180. Here I am still questioning what did I do wrong. And I know I shouldn't let this bother me, but unfortunately it still does! 
Again, I am sorry for not visiting with all of you very much lately, but my life is full and hectic at the moment! I am moving 400 miles away next week, so I won't be blogging much in the next few weeks. 
So to all of you that are hanging in there with me, I appreciate it more than you'll ever know!! 
I am sorry to rant and rave about this again, but I am a bit sad at loosing another follower. I honestly don't know what to do.

Anyway, enough of me! I hope everyone enjoys the rest of their Summer before all of the kiddos start back to school. My little one will be starting the first grade 2 weeks after our move. I'm so nervous for him, but he'll do great!!
Again thanks to my friends who follow me even when I'm boring or absent from my blog, your what matters!
Sincerely,
Melinda 

P.S.  I know the photos have nothing to do with this post, but I just can't write a post without photos. ;<)

**New Designs**

Hey all, I hope I find you well.
Just a quick post before I dive head first into packing.
I wanted to show you a couple of new designs I did the other night at 1:00 am. I know, but I can't sleep, I have 5 million things on my mind and 10 million things to do. I've never had to prepare for a move by myself before, so I'm a little stressed.  Hubby couldn't come down this week due to his work schedule.
Please forgive me for not visiting and leaving comments a lot lately, I promise once I get settled I will visit more.

New designs will be available for purchase on Etsy if your interested. Once I start selling my pieces at the flea markets back home, I'm probably going to stop selling on Etsy, I just don't have enough pieces right now to sell for both venues. 



 




Hope you enjoyed, please have a great week and I will talk to you all soon.

Sincerely,
~Melinda

**Rosette Wreath**

Happy Sunday to everyone!! I am so happy, I can't even begin to tell you. If you haven't heard, my moving plans have been finalized and I will be back with my lovey as of August 20th!!!! Yea!!!!!
So, because I got so discouraged a month ago because our first place fell through, the packing ceased! What does this mean you ask? It means that I have a 3 bedroom 2 car garage house to pack in 2 1/2 weeks. BY MY SELF! AHHHHH!!!Oh well, I can do it or pass out trying. :) {I just learned how to make smiley faces so you'll be seeing them alot!}
In other news, I made a rosette wreath the other night and thought I would show you all. I'm really pleased with the way it turned out.






Have a wonderful and happy Sunday!
Sincerely,
~Melinda
