Exciting News


Sister # 4, Jan,  and I are so excited!  Together, we own  "2nd Crop Sisters" which is located at Emma Kate's Cottage in Attalla, AL.  You may already know that bit of information.  What you don't know is that 2nd Crop Sisters is going to be at the City Farmhouse Pop-Up Show on October 17th and 18th, 2014 in Franklin, TN.  We are already hard at work painting, sewing, soldering, and most fun of all, junking for this fun event!
Linda from Coastal Charm will be there, too.  We always have fun when we are together!
Also, I can't believe that I will get to meet Nina Harmann!  WOW! And, Matthew Mead , too!
Just a lot to take in right now.  
Yes, we changed our name from Sisters to 2nd Crop Sisters.  There are a whole lot of businesses named Sisters and admittedly it wasn't very original.  So, we decided on 2nd Crop Sisters.
Here is the story if you are interested:
Our father and mother had six children.  The first four were born in a clump in a ten year span. They thought their family was complete.  Surprise - eight years later sister #4 (Jan) was born and SUPER surprise - two years after that, here comes ME!!!!  Dad referred to Jan and me as their second crop of children! It took us a while to understand the term but we really were their 2nd crop kids!
So, that why Sisters became 2nd Crop Sisters.  
We would love if you would take a minute to visit and like 2nd Crop Sisters on facebook.  We will be keeping up with things there and I am going to try my best to keep Blue Creek Home updated also.
Like City Farmhouse, too.  They will definitely be keeping up with information about the show and they have an incredible store in Franklin, Tennessee.  There is always something exciting going on there. The inventory at City Farmhouse is to die for!
In the next day or two, I will share the first big item we have found for our City Farmhouse Pop-Up Show booth.  It really is going to be hard not to nail this beauty to my floor!

Creating Wintery Things


I love winter weddings - more often than not, the color scheme is white and some shade of red.
So, with that in mind, and also knowing that Valentine's Day is just around the corner, I have been busy creating these sweet little felted wool pillows.  I simply added vintage laces and handmade flowers to them. So much fun to make!




 My favorite one

 




Obviously, these are perfect for Valentine's Day decorating, but I also think that they would be lovely as ring bearer pillows for a Winter wedding or maybe bridesmaids gifts.
You can find them at Burlapidated.

Happy Week

Do You Know What I Know?


The child, the child
Sleeping in the night
He will bring us goodness and light
He will bring us goodness and light



Do You Hear What I Hear?

Said the night wind to the little lamb
Do you see what I see
(Do you see what I see)
Way up in the sky little lamb
Do you see what I see
(Do you see what I see)
A star, a star
Dancing in the night
With a tail as big as a kite
With a tail as big as a kite
Said the little lamb to the shepherd boy
Do you hear what I hear
(Do you year what I hear)
Ringing through the sky shepherd boy
Do you hear what I hear
(Do hear what I hear)
A song, a song
High above the trees
With a voice as big as the sea
With a voice as big as the sea
Said the shepherd boy to the mighty king
Do you know what I know
(Do you know what I know)
In your palace warm mighty king
Do you know what I know
(Do you know what I know)
A child, a child
Shivers in the cold
Let us bring him silver and gold
Let us bring him silver and gold
Said the king to the people everywhere
Listen to what I say
( Listen to what I say)
Pray for peace people everywhere
Listen to what I say
(Listen to what I say)
The child, the child
Sleeping in the night
He will bring us goodness and light
He will bring us goodness and light
He will bring us goodness and light

May this Christmas be a blessed and joyful time for you.

*  *  *  *  * 

Do you like fancy frames as much as I do????

I found another cute frame
If only I could decide what to do!


 Found this frame while junking last week



 I love fanciful frames and old wooden coat hangers too!


 I painted the hanger with Annie Sloan old white and 
embellished it with 'romantical' stamps, hand dyed 
seam binding, and a little cluster of vintage pink roses


And just in case you noticed the London-like background
Yes...it's rainy and foggy here - AGAIN!!
More rain tomorrow 
 Bah-Humbug!!!!
