Mid-Week & the Old Crow Market

Just wanted to take a minute and let everyone know that things are going great!  After a very full weekend, many friends have stopped in...again!  But...not to worry...lots of great prims are on the way and we will be re-stocked in no time!

Our big focus now is the Mount Dora Art Fest and our very own "Old Crow Market" that takes place on February 4th & 5th.  Some our of our dear friends will be setting up in our yard and porch area and we'll give you the final details on that in a few days.  But, the Art Fest is not to be missed and, so far, the extended forecast shows nice weather.  It's great to be in F-L-A!

Thank you for being here.....enjoy the rest of your week...see you soon!

Just Breathe.....

Everything was perfect...the weather, the primitives, the faces of friends old and new...we could not have asked for more!  Several times throughout the past few days, we have had to remind ourselves to "Just Breathe".

We wondered who would visit and what would they think about what we had done....but, all was well when we heard the first "Welcome Back!"

Have you ever listened to Gourd Music? (a couple of the songs are playing now). The most beautiful Shaker melodies with hammered dulcimer and guitar and it is the perfect fit for our shop.  Anyway...we played it and so many visitors said they knew they were in When Pigs Fly when they heard those sounds.  We sold all of the CD's we had and our next order is already in.  Give it a listen if you get the chance.

Anyway...the opening is past and we are gearing up for the next event.  Mount Dora has the most amazing Art Fest on February 4th and 5th...last year's weekend attendance numbers were right at 300,000!  We've got our own "Old Crow Market" happening that weekend and we'll be looking for you!

Have a great week, dear friends!

Thankful !

(the sun is so bright!)

To say this has been an amazing day would not be enough...we have seen old friends and made new ones.  Our hearts have been touched by the kindness and friendship we have been shown today.

If you were not able to be here, we wish you could have been.  The great primitive stuff that went home with visitors was not to be believed...wooden bowls, old totes, benches...and lots of beeswax!

Just wanted to take the time to thank everyone for everything.....thank you, thank you, thank you.

Best surprise...ever!

Yesterday I had the best surprise...I was having lunch at a Mount Dora restaurant and hear my name...look up and there is my friend Susie. I just love her! I have not seen her in several years and missed her so much. Susie is an amazing decorator with a sense and style that I envy. This girl knows how to do it! Please check out her blog, From My Home to Yours and be inspired!
Ms. Susie in her garden!
