Weekend Notes

THANK YOU!  I've been busy all weekend filling orders!  I'm excited that you guys are excited!  And just to get shop business out of the way first...

Ruffled Burlap Wreaths are ready to rock!  I can't even tell you how much I love them.  Each one is a little bit different, and can be customized to match your holiday decor.  Too cute.

  I had a kind of sad day yesterday.  My Grandma passed away early Sunday morning.  She has had alzheimer's for 10 years, so it was expected, but I still got a little teary.  I'm just so extremely grateful for the knowledge that I will see her again someday, and she is finally at peace, restored to her perfect state in Heaven.  I think the best word to describe my Grandma is Elect. She was a very classy lady, serving for many years in the Wyoming House of Representatives, and at the Casper Chamber of Commerce.  

Isn't she a sweet gal? She loved color, baking pie, sewing and had a cute sarcastic sense of humor.  {Hmmmm.  Sound like anyone else I know?!}  Dorothy was blessed with fabulous hair that as far as I know never went gray.  Lucky girl.  So I'll be heading to Boise at the end of the week to attend her Memorial Service. I'm excited to see family that I don't get to see very often, not so exited for the crying I'm bound to do.  

One thing my Grandma and Grandpa are well known for is their applesauce.  Seriously the best ever.  No matter how hard I try mine isn't quite the same, but it always reminds me of spending the summer in Wyoming, and more recently visiting with my awesome Grandpa in Boise.  We swap canning stories and I love his laugh.  So in honor of Ty and Dorothy here is their applesauce recipe.  Its seriously worth going out and getting apples today. 

And just so you know, its good on just about anything!

  1. and grandma still loves you jenn.

  2. So sorry Jenn. I'll be thinking of you this week!

  3. So sorry about your loss! No matter how expected it is, losing them is still hard, no matter how old or sick. Take care and drive safely!

  4. I'm sorry to hear about your grandma Jen, she sounds like an amazing woman...and from what I see you sound a lot like her! Take care and travel safely.

  5. grandma-losses are the worst. they play such a vital role in who we are. to let them go, no matter how expected it may be, is like letting part of ourselves go as well.
    thinking of you. (your wreaths are so stinkin' cute! i betcha grandma's extremely proud of you, your sweet family, and all you've accomplished.)

  6. Jenn, so sorry for your loss. I'll be thinking of you.

    Your wreaths and all of the treasures in your shop are so pretty! Congratulations!

  7. So sorry to hear about the loss of your grandmother Jenn. She sounds like a wonderful lady. Glad you will be able to attend her service and be with the rest of your family this weekend to remember all of the wonderful things about her. Thanks for sharing her recipe!


I la la love hearing from you!
