Simplicity... Is anything simple these days?!? I looked up synonyms for simplicity.  I found anything but simple. Really? Explicitly, lucidity, perspicacity, perspicuous Seriously, I need a dictionary! Simplicity isn't simple anymore.  I substituted a few years back. I found I am NOT "Smarter Than a 5th Grader." Seriously, new math is an even newer math! Not Simple.  Sight words in Kindergarten? Shoot! In Kindergarten, my son was making laps around the racetrack to learn the number 8. Now, that's what I call simple.  Maybe, it's just that I'm at a time in my life when I want simple, uncomplicated, peaceful living.  Maybe it's because I'm older or maybe because the world is so complicated.  Simpler days of my childhood included visiting my Granny and Grandaddy. They lived on a dirt road down two other dirt roads. A Bobbed-wire fence lined the property.  A pond for fishing and swimming included a walk through the cow pasture.  WARNING: No Running with yo


Never, ever, ever did I ever even remotely expect to experience a pandemic in my lifetime or be quarantined for anything except a stomach bug.  Coming into 2021, I thought the fog had lifted and we were about to see blue skies and sunshine but in our neck of the woods it seems to have gotten worse.  I'm a stick-your-head-in-the-sand kind of girl.

Fall is in the Air

Anybody feel it? The slight chill in the air. The smell of pumpkin, apples and spice makes everything nice. Especially when it's pumpkin spice iced coffee. Yes, it's time only.  And doesn't time feel so limited?  The older I get, the faster each year goes. We  lost a good friend who had Covid. Another young man in his 40's, a NaNa, a daddy with young children, a couple enjoying retirement days, a husband looking forward to retirement and now a widow left to run the business without the love of her life. So much sadness. I talked to an ER nurse today who says she's never seen anything like it.  "And this call I call to mind and therefore I hope, because of the Lord's great love, we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning. Great is Your faithfulness. I say to myself, "The Lord is my portion." Therefore, I will wait for Him. "   Lamentations 3:21-24 It's been a hard week. But this I call to

White Lace and Promises

We are headed to Nashville this weekend to see the kids and celebrate our littlest Baby Girl, Claire Grace's birthday. She's three! I hope some customers will shop White Lace and Promises for some Labor Day Weekend goodies at 15% off.  I had a great month in August so that means I can do some junking while I'm on the road.  Happy Holiday!
