THINKING ABOUT MY HERB GARDEN...

The past two winters have certainly played havoc on our herb garden at the store and gardens in the front of the store,    The plow trucks "spray" their "salt" so hard it ends up on the front porch...not complaining as we NEED them, but what a mess it makes.  The salt mixture has just about destroyed everything we had planted ...winter has really hurt the Herb Garden on the side of the store too.   Sort of feel we will be starting from scratch...IF spring ever decides to visit this year!!

Our Herb Faire & Market  will be held - May 8, 9 10...stop in the store for a flyer (we do sell the best herb plants)!!  This is always a fun weekend !!  All our garden treasures will be for sale...and the Garden Fairies make delicious herbal treats to enjoy while you are shopping.

Raelyn is still in the hospital...it will be 10 weeks on Friday the 17th.  This has been such a roller coaster journey for this little one.  There is light at the end of the tunnel as Raelyn is recovering...but the risky and hard part is just beginning with withdrawal from the sedation and other medicines she has been on for so long.  Many things happen in the course of the day and night and, Wendy (her Mom) has been by her side - there to comfort and advocate.  We appreciate all the prayers you have for Raelyn and our family and ask that you continue as we KNOW God hears your voices....XO

APRIL SHOWERS...

For some reason time seems to be going so fast  - maybe cause I feel am busy doing many things but doesn't feel like much is getting accomplished.  (I'm getting slower for sure)!!

I am hoping everyone had a wonderful Easter - unfortunately I ended up with a nasty cold and it seems to not want to go away.  I am in "transformation" mode to get the store ready for Garden Thyme.  Watching the woods start to bud across the street from our home and the trees with specks of green where leaves will soon unfurl...is a happy sight.  Daffodils are even starting to show buds...it has been a long, cold winter here in our neck of the woods.

It could be worse.....we are getting a lot of rain - but NO SNOW !!  (happy face)!!

I am busy making plans for our Herb Faire and Market and can't wait for the "Flea Markets" to open...for auctions to be plentiful and to get the store filled with treasures old and new!  Spring is finally going to happen...yippee ki yay!!

Many new spring goodies have arrived and I am getting them priced and displayed as fast as I can...my most fun! (well not the pricing but the displaying is)!!

Come visit soon....I promise not to talk too much !!

HAPPY DAYS - SMILING FACES

All in a day's work...cleaning, creating, pricing, decorating,  cleaning, creating, pricing, decorating...!! That is the reason I love what I do ....never boring always changing!  New goodies have arrived this week - Easter workshops are all complete and now it is time to celebrate spring!  Hmmmm....what did the weather report say for our area....5 to 8 inches of snow the first day of SPRING!! This must be an early April Fool's joke...unbelievable...like we haven't had enough white stuff!  I shouldn't have put the snow shovel away.

Not going to let the weather get in the way of the springthyme magic that is happening.  The store is filled with flowers and all kinds of treasures for Easter and spring.  Great gift ideas - lots of baskets to create fun decorations or gifts (in many sizes and shapes)!  Eggs, bunnies and peeps too!

Some pictures of our last workshop - Easter Egg Wreath....we were all "a glitter"...literally!

SPRINGING FORWARD...

Nine days till it is officially spring....seems like it is taking forever even though today is suppose to be in the high 50's temperature wise.  We still have mountains of snow, that is melting, but still makes it feel cold outside.   I am going to think positive and welcome these days with open arms.

The store is filled with springthyme and I am getting antsy to work outside...(yes me..who doesn't like to play in the dirt).  Lots of "clean-up" has to be accomplished ...never ending.  New goodies are arriving almost daily and I am loving the store - when I open in the morning I "smile" !

Update on Raelyn....she is still very sick and heavily sedated with complications from the pneumonia...is it over 5 weeks.   The doctors and nurses do everything in their power but her compromised lungs don't always respond.  She is in the best place possible...Children's Hospital of Philadelphia...and Wendy (her mother) has not left her side.  We continue to ask for your prayers for our sweet little granddaughter....she turned 2 years old on March 5th...quiet celebrating until she comes home.

Enjoy your day and I hope you are getting a good dose of "springthyme" too.

THE LAST DAY...

...of February is something to celebrate!  Yippee, Yahoo, Hurrah,  - what a month of frigid temperatures, pesky snowfalls, days of leaving early or closing the store altogether....YES....happy to see February come to a close!

Sounds like March is going to come in "like a lion"....whatever!!  The store is filled with Easter treasures and lots of springthyme goodies...it is a happy place to visit!

We filled up two Rabbit in Jar Workshops in one day...that says a lot about "cabin fever" around here- smiling!!  I am working on another workshop before Easter...an "Egg Wreath"....will send email and pictures about that soon.

Raelyn is still having a hard time getting those lungs to heal...22 days now at CHOP....I can't express the heartache and your prayers are most welcomed.  Wendy has not left her side and we are all trying to fill in when we are needed.  Pray for Tad too...as he is keeping the other 5 children as best he can.

I am having trouble getting deliveries from (of all places) North Carolina....because of severe weather conditions...hugs to all my NC friends. believe me I fully understand!

Wishing everyone a great weekend...Judy
