I'm excited to be a part of the new little shoppe in Garden City, Mo., M & B Mercantile.  As you see I've been working long hours to get this display ready!

Here's the outside. When open there are cute displays on the porch too!

My more rugged Folk Art is now displayed for sale at Kurzweil's in Garden City, Mo

These fun pieces are painted on old boards.

This large enclosed porch is ready for more art!

Some of my crosses available.

Outside a very busy place! Yummy sandwiches!

Got the sign painted to advertize our sale coming up! I'm busy working up pieces for this too!

We slipped off for a couple of days to a favorite spot; .Roaring River State Park. Love to stay in the lodge then walk or drive down to the camping area and smell the campfires!

And watch the fisherman and visit the hatchery.

Have done a little decorating at home for the season.

I enjoy this window shelf over the sink in the kitchen. Gosh the little ruffle needs washing! Doesn't look that bad in real life!  Happy Fall Friends!

Tucked in the woods in Olathe, Kansas is this darling Artist Studio Boutique and Yellow Barn Pottery and Gift Shop.

I'd been hearing about these "Garden Stakes" but not seen any! It's a fun idea!

Been working hard ! Now have a date for our first  Folk Art  Show & Flea Market, Oct 19th. But had two other opportunities come about! The new M & B Mercantile in Garden City, Mo. would like to feature me as a Local Artist during the Fall Festival! I was worried about showing my art out in the heat in Sept. so this is perfect!  Then the 3rd thing was she happened to mention she had located the building she wanted for her Antique/Furniture Mall and there were just a couple of booths left and they were $50.00 a month. I said I'd think on it, well I went around the block ,came back and said I'll do it! So we're in in the "Both Business"  again!. It's been probably 5 years since out last venture! My sister Judy will work with me like in the past. But this time the main focus will be my Folk Art with her Antique/Boutique finds as "fillers"! So will not be the pressure on her!

This is fitting for me! I love my coffee and mornings!

One of my favorite quotes! Everytime I paint me it looks like Mother! Everyone said we looked alike though she had more hair!

One of our 4 &5 Yr. Old's favorite songs in Sunday School !  I just paint what's goin thru my mind at the time!

I love quotes and keep a Quote Book  that I'm always adding to. So my Folk Art is a perfect fit for me!

I'm going to add Polka Dot ribbon to hangers on these. Maybe in sets of 3 or individually.

Well, "Happy Fall" to you!  It's my favorite time of year! Here I am showing off my new bag and bracelet I purchases at the Junque Boutique.
