I went out tonight and got a Magic Jack and now I am on the phone with my friend in Japan.

It was so easy to install and the sound is so clear. Let's see how I like it tomorrow.

Monday's Shopping Trip

I went to Asheboro to meet Susan (Primitive Preacher's Wife) to go shopping and to bring her the items she had ordered from me. Susan had her 2 lovely daughters and her very nice husband came along as well.

We shopped at The Collectors Antique Mall and another thrift store that was just a few steps away. Susan has posted the pictures of the items they purchased on her blog. I did get a wood candle box that was marked down to $1.00, you know I couldn't leave it behind.

I have lots of nice finds from thrift stores and antique stores in my car and I swear one day I will get them out.........lol

The trip was very relaxing and we are going to go shopping again in Carmen, NC where there are 13 antiques stores side by side. So if there is anyone else that would like to go just let me know.

Until Next Time.........

Magic Jack

Does anyone have one of these. Several weeks ago I told my DH that we need to have our land line disconnected and we should use our cell phones. Well that is what we did and now I miss my house phone badly.

I don't mind using my cell but I I really miss my home phone.

If anyone is using the Magic Jack please let me know how you feel about it. I looked it up last night and it looks like a great device. I did ask Diane from A Primitive Journey what she thought about it and she says she LOVES it.

Anyways, I know you plug it into us USB on your computer and plug a phone into the device and then you have free local, long distance, voice mail, call waiting and other features for $19.95 a YEAR once you purchase the device.

Thanks in advance



I think the older I get the worse my road rage is getting. I don't understand why some people have to follow so close that if I farted they would be able to smell it. This has happened twice in the past couple days.

The first was Saturday and it was pretty messy here with lots of rain and this woman gets behind me and stayed so close I couldn't even see her head lights. I was going to a thrift store out in the country and when I got ready to turn I think it shocked her. She ALL BUT HIT ME!!! Now my car is paid for, but she is more than welcome to buy me a new one.

Ok, so tonight I was on my way home from Staples traveling on I-40 and I have to exit off onto 421. Well some kid decides he wants to ride my bumper. I tell you one of these days everyone is going to here my name on the national news about a 40 year old, crazy white woman who got out of her car and just started slapping people at the stop light and the reporter is going to say quote "She was babbling about slapping some sense into these people".

We're Going Shopping!

I will be meeting Susan (Primitive Preacher's Wife) in Asheboro, NC Monday morning to go shopping at the Collectors Antique Mall.

Susan has purchased some of my items and instead of shipping them we have decided to meet half way for both of us. I went to this antique store last week and it is wonderful and there are also thrift stores and consignment shops within walking distance of each other.

I have been wanting to meet Susan for awhile now. She always post the best finds on her blog, so maybe we can find some wonderful stuff together.

Susan will be the first person that I have meet from blogland and I am very excited!!

Just somethings I had to do...

Somehow I had gotten myself signed up for everything that everyone else was signed up for from forums to Facebook. I am usually pretty easy to get a long with, but I will not let anyone and I do mean anyone treat me bad for any reason.

I have always said to everyone I know that if I do something you don't like or if you have anything to say about me, please come to me and tell me upfront to my face regardless of what it is, I can handle it much better than to hear it from somewhere else.

I've also, always said if I send you a private email, then respond to me and don't post it on net for all to see regardless if it ticks you off or not.

So anyways, last week something happened on one of the forums between me and the owner so I decided it was time I remove myself from that situation all together and not go to that forum any longer and today was think to myself that they were the only reason I joined Facebook.

So what did I do? Well I removed myself from there totally as well. I figure since that group was the only ones I had contact on Facebook with then it was time to go. There is no need to stay so they could see what is going on in my life, I mean after all I now have my blog for that.

With me removing myself from the above places I feel much more relaxed than I have in a long time and now it will free me up to read more blogs.

I know this post is just me rambling on and on, but I always feel better when I put it in writing.

Take Care,

1. What is a blogroll?

2. Is a blogroll and a bloglist the same thing?

3. Which do you prefer on a blog, music or no music?

4. What attracts you to a blog?

Thanks for any and all help.

I didn't think this day would ever get here!

I don't think I have ever looked so forward to a Monday in my life!!! I'm sure your thinking has this woman crazy or what, well the answer to that is yes, yes I am....lol

After 9 long days and nights, and I do mean long, my loving husband Scott finally goes back to work today after 9 days of vacation.

I'M SO HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love this man, but we are not use to being around each other that much. He has always worked odd hours and I like it that way. I can't wait to get back into my routine.

So today at 3:01 EST, everyone will hear me screaming from the top of my lungs, that it is a GREAT Day to be alone............YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Look what I've been up to.........lol

I am very proud to announce the opening of our (Shari, Deb and myself) booth (Hand Madens) is now open for business in the Antique Market Place located at 6428 Burnt Poplar Road in Greensboro, NC.

It has been a long time coming, but in the end it is so worth it. Our booth looks wonderful and we still have more items to put in it next week.

I have a hodgepodge of pictures to share with you today. There are a lot and I hope you enjoy each and every one of them!

What's in a name?

As many of you know I recently closed Cinnamon Creek Primitives after being in business for 3 years. Well, I have a question that I need help with. If I were to change the name of my blog would I loose my followers and is it something any of you have done before?

I never really liked the name Cinnamon Creek Primitives, but that is what the business was named when I purchased it and I didn't want to change the name for fear of loosing my customer and look where that got me out of business.

Anyways, please let me know what you think about a name change. I have a name, that I have loved forever.
