A piece of me...

Just thought I would share a small tidbit on me today. Ever wonder how you ended up where your at? I do all the time. My Brother was born when I was 10. I was not all that happy about his coming...


He kinda grew on me and I became his second little momma.

He grew up and moved right nextdoor to me. I loved that cause I could hen peck him whenever I wanted...smile. I guess you can say we were as close as a brother and sister could be and I loved him dearly. He went home to be with the Lord 6-27-02. He was 23 and in the prime of his awesome life. My world fell apart and was never the same. You always say you could never get through it but God gives you the grace to get up and move on. That's just what I did. Being a stay at home mom I needed and still need to keep my mind busy at all times. So this is what I do...

Im a wife and mother first then I make these....

Bunches of these....

I have been in craft shows for about 6 years now. I began to blog at the beginning of this year and love it! I just opened my little etsy shop to sell some of my sweets. If you see something you like or want something I dont have just ask. So now you know a little piece of me, smile....

  1. Hey your doing GREAT with your Blog and I love how pretty it is...and your crafts are FAB. I need to get me one of those beauties you make but you have to meet me for lunch with it! That's the condition. HA!
    Let's work on that....my summer is CRAZY busy so far though how about you? Miss Priss is going to camp with HPC real soon is your daughter going too?
    Oh I wrote you back a comment on my site...HA! But what I basically said was........"go on a trip NOW" because the gas is out of control....it's higher in other places other than our state too...it's was nearly 10 cents a gallon higher in Biloxi. Blah!
    But it's way higher where our oldest son is on the East Coast.
    This is CRAZYYYY!
    Talk to you soon......

  2. Thanks for sharing that bit of you. It's so hard to get to know people and it only happens for real when we're willing to share who we are.

  3. susie,

    Thanks for stopping by my blog; I love to make new friends. Your tassels are spectacular and much more reasonable than the the other Southern gal who makes them. I am going to send a link to my friend Martha( the one hanging around in my house tour pix) who was thinking of having a custom one made.

  6. Words can rarely convey the feelings of wanting to comfort those that hurt~and I wish it were easier to do so. I am sorry that you and your family have to travel this path ~ it brings peace to know you never walk alone.

    I would love to purchase the bird tassel and will visit your store!

  16. I'm so sorry to hear about your brother. I've never lost anyone close like that but I understand the need to keep my mind busy and going, especially during difficult times it's what keeps me sane.

    I love your tassels - I've always wondered how to make those!

  19. Thanks for visiting my blog. I think that we have VERY similar taste!! I even spotted some items in your home that I have, too. Love your tassels....I will have to look you up at Canton in October. I missed May, but will not miss October (hopefully). Are you on the Square??

    I am 2 hours south of Canton....Love your fleur de lis, too....Oh! and The Royal Standard, too. I shop with them at Mistletoe Marketplace in Jackson.

    I'll visit you often!!!!!!!

  20. Hi Susie,
    I'm glad you stopped by my site and said, "Hello"-Thanks for the compliments on my photos. I can't believe your Dad has a place in Sequim ! My husband and I just drove through Sequim the other day on our way to Ruby beach-Your dad will have to check out Ruby beach (there are pictures of it on my site) Sequim is so beautiful and temps around here are mild, a far cry different from Louisiana. If he needs any information about the Washington area just write and let me know I'd love to help.
    Anyway, I love your site and I hope to spend some more time in your Etsy store~!I'm trying to open mine but life seems to be getting in the way! :)
    God Bless You,
    Robin

  21. Susie,

    Thanks for commenting on my blog. What a great blog you have! So many great ideas and what adorable tassels.

    I'm so sorry to hear about your brother. I can't even imagine. I have 3 younger brothers and always thought growing up that they were here to make my life miserable. Now that they are adults I appreciate them so much more and couldn't imagine life without them.

    Anyway, I look forward to seeing your imperfect beautiful pictures later.

    Brandee :)

  22. Hi...I just came across your blog...I can relate to your experience...I lost a brother (Bernie), in 1984, when he was 22 years old...He was one year older than me, but I always thought of him as my little brother...so sweet and kind, like yours...He died very suddenly...It still hurts...I miss him so...I feel for your loss...Katie

  23. Hi Susie,
    Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving such a sweet comment! And I'm thrilled to have found yours now. You have such a wonderful sense of style and I can't wait to see more.

    My dear brother went home to God in 2006, rather unexpectedly, he was my last living sibling and it broke my heart to lose him. I'm so sorry for your loss.

  26. Thank you for sharing about the loss of your brother. My father passed away almost a month ago, and I too have found comfort in keeping busy. I began sewing rag quilts and in a matter of two weeks, was working on my third. I have slowed down some, being in a different stage, I think. Plus I did not want to neglect my husband and children. They were so sweet to give the space I was needing, to me. I tend to grieve alone.
    God has been so good to me during this dark time. Maybe one day I will work up the courage to share how some of my dad's final days were ~ such grace from the Lord in his suffering. I will never doubt His sovereignty. He allowed His mercy to overflow in my life during this time.
    I look forward to reading all of your blog. You have a lovely family! ~Tricia Anne ps. Thank you for your kind comments regarding my daughter's photograph. She was delighted. :o)

  27. Simple words cant take away your pain... but I just wanted to let you know Im very sorry for your loss... he was a handsome young man and very lucky to have you for his sister. I have 2 daughters that are 10 years apart, and now I have 2 that are 15 years apart. Life is precious for sure.
