"How does your garden grow? Clay bells and radishes all in a row".  (Not a proper quote, but apt for the shop :)  Everyone is busy planting garden, and the row markers were a hot item this week.  They even look nice on a kitchen christmas tree, or identifying herbs that you have a hard time remembering what they are!  I've been planting flowers outside in an old chicken feeder...looks kinda neat.  Made me think of the bible everything there is a season, a time to plant and a time to harvest.        I had a bus stop in early one morning this week, and we had a busy half hour.  They were from Canada, and seemed to really like the birdhouses...    Well, it's Saturday evening, time to prepare for Sunday.  Have a blest Lord's day, everyone.

We have several new items in the shop, all done by local crafters.

Here's a sample of the old barn siding signs put together by Beth Hirschy Pogue.  I think you'll like the materials and sayings that she uses.....this is one of about 20 that she brought in.  The sign is sitting on a garden bench made from an old twin bed, by Laura Mishler and her sister.

 Cindy Bontrager brought some of her great pictures made from pictures that she takes herself.  People love to decorate with them, and they each have a verse or saying that makes it very meaningful.  Come check them out, (I already sold one of them :)
