Something NEW!

I have been "experimenting" with something new and here is the outcome of my first experiment...Cement Eggs! I saw these eggs on two other blogs and thought I would try to make them. So what do you think? They are a bit of work to make but I am having is fun because I get to play in "mud" and create new things. Right now I have a little bee skep "curing"...can't wait to see how that turns out...then on to making lots more!

Let's Party!

Spring is Nature's way of saying, "Let's Party!" ~Robin Williams

Happy first day of SPRING! It seems like it has been a LONG Winter and I am so happy that Spring is finally here! I can't wait to get my hands in the dirt and start my Spring gardening. I am going to totally redo the herb garden that is next to the Shop. My goal is to make it a garden where our customers can spend some time either sitting or strolling among the herbs. And I will encouraged them to pick herbs and hopefully get to love herbs as much as I do! I am also hoping to get started on a cutting much to do! I have been working on making planters, troughs and bee skeps for the Shop...will debut these new things stay tuned! Tim has been busy in the "splinter shanty".....he has been creating some wonderful wooden wares! Poor guy is working hard on the never ending "honey~do" list! Lots happening here at the Brickhouse! Make sure to follow us on Facebook where we give daily updates on the Shop and stop by here again and see what is new at the Shop....even though we are busy working on new things we are planning on celebrating SPRING....and we hope you do the same. LET'S PARTY for Spring has arrived!

My Trip to the Cinnamon Stick

Sunday was the PERFECT DAY! I spent it with some great friends, Tammy, Donna and Donna's wonderful Husband, George. I can now scratch something off my BUCKET LIST...I FINALLY met Miss Judy of THE CINNAMON STICK. I fell in LOVE with Judy the moment I walked into her Beautiful Shop and she gave me a hug! Judy and I have been cyber friends for a long time, she has helped me by giving me advice and directing me to other contacts for my business and with that a friendship formed...So now I can say that she will always be a special friend to me. I just wished I lived closer to her because I would love to hang with her...I think we may get into a bit of trouble but that would be FUN!
Tammy was kind enough to drive all of us to Hereford and what a fun trip it was! We arrived at The Cinnamon Stick a little early so we headed up the road a bit to a nice antique center. I bought two Ironstone pieces to add to my small collection. AND then we went to Judy's. When I walked in the door I was greeted by Judy with a big hug! Judy's Shop is AWESOME...I spent over 2 hours with her and it wasn't enough time...I didn't want to leave!

I was trying to take pictures of her Shop but my camera decided to act up..I think the Spirits in the Shop did something to the camera. LOL...I love Judy's stories of the Spirits...I do believe that if I were in the Spirit world I would want to live at THE CINNAMON STICK..those lucky Spirits! Judy did some blog posts about the "happenings" in her Shop...make sure you read them or just stop by The Cinnamon Stick and ask Judy to tell you the stories.
Here are pictures...please forgive me for the poor quality of the pictures...You just need to go and visit Judy and see the Shop in person.

Judy has a special touch with how she displays things in her Shop! I just wish I would have been able to take better pictures to show you just how nice everything looked.

Judy showed me her classroom...what a perfect spot for holding classes!

Here is Miss Judy waiting on her customers. She is such a pretty lady who is always smiling! WONDERFUL LADY! OH and you have to see how pretty she makes your purchases look...the bags of goodies that leave her shop are so pretty!

You all need to go and visit Judy at The Cinnamon Stick..tell her Patti sent you! I know I WILL be going back again!
