There's A New Girl In Town

Good morning and a rainy morning it is. Instead of coffee lets have a cup of hot  cinnamon spice tea. We'll change it up a bit, okay. I am so happy to see you because I have some exciting news. The new girl in town is this girl.
The one on the right! Yes Deb has decided to join the world of bloggers. I think she has seen how much fun it is and I promise she will have lots to share. She will lend more to decorating and organizing as well as collecting antiques. I promise you will enjoy her blog and will be enlightened by it.
It is nasty here today. When I went out to open the gate for Dasko this morning it was like being in Florida. 69*. Tonight it is to get down to freezing and snow. If you like change this is the place to be. I am snuggled in and will be all day.
Do you all remember Mary Emmerling? I wonder where she is now and what she is doing. I always enjoyed reading her columns and watching her on HGTV. Well, she wrote, if you remember, the best Heart Book. I bought a copy when it came out and my rottweiler Hillary, promptly ate it! A friend bought me another copy and yes she did, (Hillary) ate it too! I was so mad at her. That dog ate everything!!! Someday I will do a post on her. She was the sassiest rottie I have owned. She was like the energizer bunny, always moving and Anyway I was on Amazon and found another book of Hearts. I was so excited, because I love hearts. (You all know that.) So it came and Dasko is not the least bit interested in having it for supper or a
I love this book! I have a few of the things in here. One is the bowl with hearts and she states her's was from Ohio too.
I am going to be sharing some of my "heart" with you the first 14 days of February. Cindi, over at Cindi's Country Corner
is promoting this and I am joining it. It will be fun, why don't you?
  Here are two handcarved hearts by Gary Falin. I like them on the basket handle.This is the basket I bought a couple of years ago on the longest yard sale.
I love these old carriers. This has to be my favorite. Look at the dovetailing on this one.
I just cannot tell you how much I love this old work. I thank you so much for coming Through My Back Door where life is good.
PS: I am sharing this message from Tamra's grandmother, Anna Ruth Thompson.
Betty, Thank you for your prayers and concern for Tamra . I tried to post again on you blog but I just can't do it . Please tell all those precious people how much Jimmie and I appreciate their prayers and concern . I guess I should tell you I took Tamra to the Dr. Today. Her pathology report said no lymph nodes were affected . He was as excited as we were ,almost, To God Be The Glory.he said everything looked great. I love you and value your friendship so much. God is so good.
PSS: Hopefully I will have a picture to share soon.

  1. Good morning Ms Betty! Spiced tea sounds really good. Did not sleep well with all the threats of storms.. We escaped the heavy winds.. My daughter, in Winchester Ky got hit hard...all her patio furn and grill was tossed in yard and shutters pulled off. I love that Deb is connecting to blogworld. She will love it. Of your all your things are lovely. Excited about your 14 days of hearts. So glad things are well with Tamra. Blessings and have a great day!

    How exciting to have a new blog to follow! And how especially nice that we already know it will be WONDERFUL because we know the author comes "from good stock" Can't wait to hear all about Hillary, too.
