Well, I've really done it now. I was rearranging some furniture and slipped and fell on my ankle and broke the darn thing!!! Poor hubs, I called him (crying my eyes out, of course, cause it hurt like h-e-double hockey sticks!!) and told him I thought I broke my foot. So he raced home to take me to the emergency room. While I was whaling waiting for him to get home, my survival skills must have kicked in because I pulled myself upstairs to the main floor and somehow put some ice on it. By the way...note to self...GET TO THE GYM!! haha I have absolutely no upper body strength. to make a long story short...The ortho says its more of a chip from the ligaments tearing and that I should be able to hobble around on it in three weeks or so...six weeks for a full recovery. He adjusted the gel cast, patted me on the head and sent me home with some wonderful pain medication. Hubs says he likes those meds, because I laugh at all his jokes again! LOL

It looks like the studio is going to be on hold for at least a week or two...bummer! I have so many great dollies in my head that I would like to create for the holidays. If you get a chance, please keep me in your prayers for a speedy recovery....Wishing you all the best....Susan

Rainy Nights in Georgia

Feels like it's raining all over the world....We're getting drenched again in Hotlanta. It's not as bad as a couple of months ago with all the flooding, but folks sure are concerned after the previous damage from all the rain. The good news?...well the rain is done in our area for now. Looks like sunshine and cool temps for the next few days. That should dry things up and lift everyon's spirits!

Can you believe how handsome this little guy is? Our sweet grandson, Sawyer, is growing way too fast!! He had his 6 week check up Monday and the chunkster weighs 13lbs 6oz!!! Pops and I are totally in love with the little fella! Patrick (my son) and Courtney are doing's amazing to watch our son with his little family. Taking care of their baby boy seems to come so naturally for both of them...Sawyer is one very blessed little man!

Other than loving on our new grandson and counting raindrops (hee hee) I've been busy in the studio getting ready for a couple of upcoming events! TDIPT Mercantile will update on the 15th (you can get a sneak peek on the eve of the 14th!!) with our artists all participating in a them of White Christmas. It's going to be fun to see all the great holiday and winter pieces being offered.

On the 15th the Prim and Whimsy Girls will also be hosting a group themed listing on Ebay...Prim and Whimsy Holiday Enchantment! I can promise you there will be some fun and creative pieces offered on Ebay next week so be sure to stop by and take a peek!

Wishing you a very blessed week...Hugs..Susan
