October is here!!!

I LOVE, LOVE October in the mountains. The leaves are changing, the air is cool and crisp. It's the perfect outdoor weather in my opinion. So, yeah...I'm excited.

I also am happy to celebrate my beloved's Birthday.. Oct 1st.. Happy Birthday sweetie.

The Cashiers Hillside Shops are going to be re-opening Oct 7th. through the end of the month. Thurs - Sat 11-5. Please come out and support the awesome artists and crafters that fill the shops. You will not be disappointed.

I am also participating in The Leaf Festival Oct 8-10th in Cashiers, NC. On the Village Green. It promises to be a lot of fun. Food, Music, and many very talented crafters.

So..get out and enjoy the weather in the mountains this October. your local businesses and artists!

The Cutest Dog Stuff!!!!

I was fortunate enough to be stationed across from this SUPER TALENTED crafter at a recent show. Katie, from Tree Parlor was such a delight to not only meet..but also commiserate with. (The show was just so so) For me, one of the silver linings of the experience was getting to meet and enjoy Katie, and her really SWEET, very well made dog items.

One of the items I really thought was clever were the "Mommy and Me" matching headbands and collars. I mean come on....that's just ridiculously cute.

Katie takes a lot of time and pride in her work. Her Saddle Wags are
up cycled T-shirts. Some with your favorite Team on them, Some are just simple, and some are reminiscent of racing jersey's.

Also...The Snood.
Doesn't you puppy deserve to be warm and cozy in the cold winter months. Katie has a slew of different color choices, and she will custom make one for your pup. (Look at that face)

Be sure to check her out online at:,on Etsy and she will also be at the Indie Craft Parade in Greeville, SC. Sept 10 & 11th. DON"T miss her. She's just as cute as her dog fashions!
