Just checking in..

Good Evening, my dears.. 
Just having a cup of tea and thought I would drop you all a little line.. 

Time is passing here by the Bay very quickly. 
Old |Home Week is over and it was lovely and busy.. 
A couple of rain days but the show went on.. grin.. 
Saw so many old friends and customers.
I told Terry that when I got home at night I was tired from talking so much.. 
Hard to believe, eh?  .... 

Anyway, there is not much new.. 

Today I opened the shop and made some homemade deodorants... 
grapefruit and lavender.. 
Also did up a few small cosmetic bags which are kind of cute.. 

The thing is that I broke my best camera.. 
Now I need to buy another but in order to do that I need to go shopping and that does not seem to happen much lately.. 
Soon, though.. 

We had a good day yesterday..
Church in the morning and evening and then I spent the afternoon with Shonda as Terry and the boys went up country for awhile. 

It was very exciting as they have sold their house and bought a new one...
They picked up the keys and we had a grand tour.. 
So lovely but so different from her other one.. 

She is so excited and I am sure Dave is too but not quite so vocal.. smile.. 
Today.. I answered the phone and she is screaming  saying rather loudly.. 
She is excited.. 

So happy for them.. 
God has been so good to them and we are all thankful for his blessings..
They both work so hard though and this is one of the rewards.. 

I will hopefully post some pics for you to see once she is organized.. 

Well, dearies.. 
I am headed to bed early again.. 
I don't know about this old age thing.. 
Go to bed early... 
Get up early.. 
Still tired.. 
Oh well... Still standing.. 

Thank you so much for your sweet visit.. 
So appreciate you all.. 
God bless.. 


  1. Ah yes ... I remember those days when a new house excited me too ... Take care Faye. Sue

  2. Oh how exciting for Shonda . Lovely photos ! Sorry to hear about your camera breaking , I would be lost with out mine lol ! Glad all is well over there . Oh it's tea time for Papa and I... we have a cup of tea every evening at 8pm lol . Thanks for sharing . Have a good day !

    1. Hi Elaine.. I hope to get my new camera soon but will have to use my old one until then.. Hope I get a good sale.. xo

  3. Fun post to read Faye. LOL still standing...know what you mean.
    Count our blessings.

    1. I see you have my sense of humor, Earlene... grin..

  4. Hello Dear......I was just saying to Jim at suppertime that I must be showing my age because I sure am tired every night! Can not wait to settle into my chair, put my feet up and look at a magazine or even snooze if I want to!!!!

    Tell Shonda that I am so happy for her. In my mind, I have an idea what it might be like but we will see. It is wonderful that she is happy. A Home is a Home is a HOME! Is she going to be living any closer to you and Terry?

    May your upcoming days at the sea be a little more relaxing than they have been. Enjoy......


    1. Hi Sue..
      No, she will not be any closer but a bit further from here..Just a skip, hop and a jump.. smile.. They have a river view and beach rights..

  5. So happy for them.
    Happy also to see your post.
    Love the photos!

  6. How exciting, a new home. Seems like I'm always tired too. Think life is just to fast paced.


    1. Yes, Felicia.. Life is just too busy.. We need to slow down but then everyone would leave us in the dust.. grin..

  7. Great! I would peek that new house. I love houses, I always see the potential they have and my imagination fly. No doubt, I would visit your shop and your friends' house if I were closer.


    1. Hi Marina.. Yes, I hope to show lots of pics..Shonda has quite a decorating style and it will be fun to see what she does..

  8. Congratulations Faye to your daughter on her new home. I am sure if she works half as hard as you she must work all the time. It is good to stay busy isn't it and feel good from accomplishments when your head hits the pillow. Cheers.

    1. I will tell Shonda, Gwen.. She works twice as hard as me, actually.. They both are such workers.. It is nice to end the day on a filled one, eh?
      Take care, my friend.

  9. I was excited too to see your posts. I love reading and seeing all your lovely pictures. I'm sorry to hear about your camera. I remember moving into our new home. It really does feel great.

    I also really love the twig branch star with the candle. Very different.
    Take care

  10. Oh, it was so good to "read from you" again. It felt like a good ole fashioned hug from a dear friend. smile!

    I can relate this waking up feeling tired..thing. Dealing with Lyme's is not fun at all... but, it's where I'm at.

    I have been reading Isaiah 40 this morning - very encouraging. I'll be thinking of you throughout my day.

  11. Such fun times...thanks for sharing your pictures too!

  12. Hi nice to see another posting from you:) How exciting for Shonda. I hope she has a great time decorating it. I hear you about waking up tired. I used to be able to work circles around people half my age, and now I get exhausted just reading about all you do! Today I'll be cleaning the spare bedroom. I've been putting it off for a week and apparently it isn't going to clean itself.

    Take care, and hope to see you soon.

  13. Sorry to hear about your camera. I hope you find a new one that you like soon. Very exciting about your daughters New home! Enjoy your day and God bless.

  14. It sounds like your summer has been wonderful so far. And how exciting for your daughter. I think we all remember the excitement of a new home and all the ideas that are swimming around in your head.

    Hope you're able to get a new camera soon. As always, it's a pleasure to visit your wonderful blog.

  15. Summer sure is flying by Faye. I'm glad you are enjoying it and keeping busy. I was surprised to read that Shonda sold her beautiful house. I loved that one in the photos you've shared here but I know her new one will be beautiful too. She's a great decorator. Sorry that your camera is broken. That's not good at all. I don't know what I'd do if mine was.
    We're on the road and in Whistler, BC tonight for a little trip from my sister's in Chilliwack. Yes, a long way from NB! Enjoying some very beautiful countryside. Hugs, Pam

  16. Summer does indeed seem to be the most fleeting of seasons...but then again I feel that way as each beautiful season rolls by! Thank you for sharing the lovely pictures and I hope a new camera will soon be allowing you to capture more scenery and life events...a pictue is worth a thousand words! May summer pass by a little more slowly for us all as there is so much to savour before we enjoy the loveliness of autumn. Hugs!
