Cameron Antique Fair

Herb and I have been working all day getting ready for Cameron. I have a nice firkin that someone put shiny lacquer on, so I took that shine away, this is a nice one too, no staples, copper nails, also worked on one that someone painted yellow, probably was painted back in the 80's, took the shine off it too. Just working on several smalls that needed this or that. What a beautiful day its been. From what I am hearing Friday and Saturday are going to be perfect!
The show is open Friday from noon to 5, then again on Saturday from 9-5, don't wait too late in the day Saturday, because alot of dealers seem to start tearing down around 3 or so.
Hope to see you there. I will be in the shop on Saturday and Herb will be at the show, hope we see you there!!!

Two Ingredient Pumpkin Cake

My niece, Heather was talking about this and thought I would try it, low in calories and easy, my style!
Yes, its very good, can do it in a cake, cookies, muffins, whatever your heart desires.
Here is a link to the recipe.
Cream cheese icing would be wonderful, but then there goes the diet!

Tapers with Timer!

We got some tapers in that take two AA batteries and when you turn them on, they burn for 6 hours, then shut off for 18 hours then come back on. We have had these in pillars but now they have come out with them in tapers, pretty cool, huh? Someone asked me about these at our Fall Open House, and I had a line at the time and couldn't connect with what they were saying and I had these on order! Guess I am not much of a multi-tasker! In the picture you can see one of these tapers in a lantern.

Yesterday when I opened, I had some customers talking about a bee that looked like a hummingbird in my flower bed, so I had to look too! I looked it up and I think its what is known as a sphinx moth, it flies like a hummingbird, but it stuck around for me to photograph him, unlike a hummingbird, they are so quick! They also have that long beak like a hummingbird. I had never seen one before and really thought it was neat, so thought I would share it with you. Maybe they aren't that uncommon, but to me it was. You can click on the picture to see it better.

Welcome Fall Gathering

The Welcome Fall Gathering is now history, we had a fantastic turnout, and I want to thank you all for coming, you came from near and far.
The winners of the gift certificates are Debbie Plocar, Raeford, Treasure Davis, Holly Springs, Pat Cathey, Graham, and Lonese Powell from Whiteville. Congrats!
Next on the agenda is Cameron, which will be on Oct 1 in the afternoon on Friday and then on October 2, on Saturday. Hoping for a nice cool fall day.
Sylvia found these burner tops in an old barn, we thought they would make a nice patio table or be great in a garden, they were used in old tobacco barns, they are the top of the burner, and another part of NC history.
Don't forget we are closed today for the holiday.
