Anyone ever see the movie Blazing Saddles?

Do you remember that line: "I'm so tie-wed, I need some wed woses".

I need me some wed woses.

Not trying to be a whiny pants, but I am not gonna lie, feeling a little whiny.

It is one week till my Home & Harvest Sale.

Everything that is going to be made, painted, created and priced is made painted, created and priced.

Everything else I will have to just let go.

Tomorrow, I begin set –up.

Then, there is hopefully time for final zhushing, photographing, and maybe a little zhushing of myself.

I am not gonna lie, I am a hot mess.


Since the girls have gone back to school, all waking hours that don’t involve commitments to them, have been put to preparations for this sale.

My family has been very patient with crappy meals.

My Mom and my sister have given up their own personal time to come and help me pull it all together.

I am not gonna lie, my Mom can clean my house like I probably never will.

It is amazing how great things look when they are really clean.

Thanks Mom!


There have been moments when I find myself being distracted by the TV or that addictive Pinterest, or others things that are not a priority right now.

But, one phrase keeps running through my head, so I though I would share it with you.

Maybe, it will help you in a moment of lack of focus!

I also wanted to take a moment to thank all of you for your sweet comments on my fall mantel, it is sincerely appreciated.
