I have lots to tell you about!

Happy Spring! Don’t you just love this time of year?!  Everything is waking up after a long sleep.  Nature is the great optimist.  It just keeps returning, getting bigger and prettier each year.  I think someone slipped this climbing rose some secret sauce, because I can’t remember it going this crazy before with new flowers. […]

Happy April Sale! Spring is here!

Hello sweet friend, Happy April!  It feels like if I stopped running, May, June and July would slam right into me! April first, thirty-two years ago, I had a sneaking suspicion that I was with child. So, pregnancy test in hand (yes, they had those things back then!), I found out I was correct!  I then […]

Hello from Texas!

Hello Friends!, We’re here, in the heart of Texas!  Perfect weather…high 70’s!  If it stayed like this all year, there’d be no hope for California! Here I am, with my girlfriend’s little sister.  In front of the Alamo, no less!  No, we didn’t go in.  I’ll read up on it one day! We enjoyed lunch […]

News from the shop!

Hello gorgeous!   It’s St. Patty’s Day evening.  Papa and I are settling down, after a yummy crock pot, full of ye old corned beef!  Have you done the 23 and me thing? I did and I don’t believe I have any Irish blood in me.  I still love corned beef! Darlene and I spent […]

This Week at The Treasured Home!

Good morning! I’m a day late, this week. It’s Thursday evening as I sit down to say hello.  Mr. Wonderful is taking Micah on our evening stroll without me, so I get to stay inside where it’s nice and cozy and talk to you! One of my all-time favorite things to do at the shop, […]

A whole lot of painting going on!

Hello Friend! Even though it seemed like I hadn’t painted a piece of furniture in forever and a day, low and behold, I can still do it! One of our many dear customers donated this traditional antique dresser to the shop last year.  It appears to have had a few prior make-overs. Originally, I’m sure […]

Sweetheart Sale at the Shop, this Week!

Hello, friend!, I hope your week is going well!  I spent half of today, thinking it was Tuesday. Good thing Mr. Wonderful set me straight!  Maybe it was wishful thinking…that I wasn’t so behind schedule! Sweetheart Sale! You probably know about our jewelry, but if you’re new to the shop, let me fill you in! […]

This week at the shop!

Good evening, my dear! This is one of those poorly executed blog posts, thanks to a great lack of prior planning!  I spent a good part of Monday and today at the shop.  Kept busy as a the squirrels running around our back yard. You’d think I’d manage to take a few pretty pictures, to […]

Staying dry at The Treasured Home!

Hello sweetness!, I took this photo this evening, before leaving the shop.  Most of the lights were off and I find the photos to be prettier in limited light.  I was ready to head out the door and thought I’d better get some new shots to share with you all. In the back of my […]
