I Am So Sorry

Oh Wow! I am so sorry that I left my blog in limbo but this has been the worst summer I have had in years!
I woke up in March and couldn't breathe. I called my doctor and even though he wasn't suppose to work that day, the nurse was so scared by by inability to talk that he met me there that afternoon. Well by the time I got there my blood pressure was out the roof because I wasn't getting enough oxygen to my heart. (And I don't even have high blood pressure.) That was the first time I ever saw him panic! Britt tried to help me out but I wasn't able to stay on top of things.
Then in July my back went out and because the State of Tenn has decided to control all pain meds so that drug addicts can't get them, no one can get them unless you go to a pain clinic and stand in line with the drug addicts!GRRRRR! And if they think this is going to stop drug addicts from getting drugs they are stupid!!! The only people who are suffering are the people who really need help for a short period of time! So I was either in bed or in a hot tub of water for almost two months until it stopped hurting!
And then in Aug. I woke up and couldn't breathe again (RAGWEED). So I have been on steroids most of the summer, breathing treatments and anti-biotics! It has been all I can do to try to keep ahead a little. But that is still no excuse.
So to make up to the ladies who left comments on my Challenge/Giveaway, I am going to send each of you a Lil' Crow of your choice. So Heather, Barb, Danice and Vicky go to my Etsy shop on the right side and look at the Lil' Crows and then email me and tell me which you want. I have them made so all I have to do is add the accessories for the ones you choose. The only one that is not in my Etsy Shop is the Valentine Lil' Crow and I will add a picture of that one.
I hope you all forgive me and try to undertand my situation. Now that it's cold I can breathe! I LOVE Winter!!LOL

A Fun Challenge/Giveaway


Most of you who have followed me know my sidekick, Brittany(Bree), my niece. For those of you who don't she helps me with just about eveerything (except gardening) and she does all my computer fixing when I mess it up.LOl Here is a post on Britt if you would like an update on why she doesn't help me with gardening. ROFLMBO!!
http://strollthroughmyflowergarden.blogspot.com/

We have all heard old women making comparisons with their old sayings when they are explaining something. Well Bree is wanting answers to some of these old wives sayings. So she has asked me to have a fun challenge/giveaway to get some answers.
So here are the questions.
Who is Dick and why is his hatband so tight?
Who is Kootie Brown and why does he stay drunk?

Now for the fun. Starting July 1st until July 15th everyone can leave comments on what you believe is the answer. Bree is going to go through these answers and pick out what she believes is the 10 best. Then we are going to let everyone vote on what they think is the best of those ten from July 16th to July 31st. I will have the crows in the mail on Aug. 1st to the winners. That person will win this Lil' Grandma Crow's Old Timey Sayings Crow. I LOVE this Lil' Crow!!
But to give everyone a chance I am going to take the rest of the people who leave comments and give away another crow! So everyone has a chance to win.
If you don't know who Kootie Brown and Dick are, that's ok. Just leave a comment on what you think.LOL And if you have any more sayings we would love to hear them! I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!
The rules are simple. All you have to do is be a follower of my blog. New followers are always welcome. If you would like to share the fun on your blog or pinterest, facebook, etc. feel free to do so. I want this to be a fun challenge/giveaway. And remember Bree is in charge of the challenge/giveaway, I am just providing the free gifts.
So put your thinking caps on and give here some answers!

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY & New Listings

I want to take this time to wish evreyone A VERY HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!  I hope your day is filled with love and happiness!  And I have new listings in my Etsy shop.
When I made the liquid soap dispensers, I fell in love with it.  But I wanted a toothbrush holder and cup dispenser to match and couldn't find the right rusty rings to match.  Well I found them and I now have the toothbrush holder and the disposable cup holder  to blend in with the soap dispenser listed in my Etsy shop.

I have several different labels for the soap dispensers to match different tastes.  Until next time...

Man's Best Friend

I have heard that dogs are man's best friend but I have never seen a dog show it's affection like Jeeter does to my grandson, Jacob.
I was outside the other day while Jacob was feeding Jeeter and all of a sudden Jeeter jumped up and put his paws on Jacob's shoulder and buried his head in his neck to give him a hug!  I think this picture says it all.

Isn't this the sweetest thing you have ever seen?

And then there is our dog, Pepper.   Chester got Pepper when she was 6 months old.  She had been abused and would not let us touch her for about a year.  And now you can't separate the two of them!  As soon as he comes out the door Pepper jumps up and runs to him.

And she is the most loyal member in our church! LOL  We attend church behind our house and she follows him every service.  Much to everyone's dismay she doesn't let anyone touch her because of her fear of people.  
But while church is going on she lays beside Chester's car and about every 15 minutes she gets up and walks around the church parking lot to make sure every thing is ok and then goes and lays back down beside his car.  You can't ask for a better watch dog than Pepper.  And here she goes...
