New Farmhouse Tables are Adopted.


Custom painted tables

Old Tables Get a New Look
Recently acquired some tables which then received an overhaul. These lovely gems were once in pieces some with tops that were badly damaged and legs in desperate need of repair. To see they still had value was easy. The legs were tightened and repaired and the tops were either replaced or filled in. When finished these beauties now strong sturdy farmhouse tables were adopted. They stand in their forever homes as cherished loved tables ready to hold their new families glass book or whatever is needed.
It is gratifying to find a cast away and bring it back to stand tall in an honored place, a warm cozy farmhouse.

Subject: Warren Buffet Quote

This was sent to me today and though I am not a fan of Mr. Buffett I do think this idea has merit. Instead of sending it to friends via email I thought why not just post it and let anyone read it and judge for themselves. Please do not reply to me simply decide for yourself how you feel and open the discussion with those around you. I would add the President, Cabinet and Fed to the list.
 
Subject: Warren Buffet Quote
Warren Buffett, in a recent interview with CNBC, offers one of the
best quotes about the debt ceiling:
"I could end the deficit in 5 minutes," he told CNBC. "You just
pass a law that says that anytime there is a deficit of more
than 3% of GDP, all sitting members of Congress are ineligible
for re-election".

The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds)
took only 3 months & 8 days to be ratified! Why? Simple!
The people demanded it. That was in 1971 - before computers, e-mail,
cell phones, etc.

Of the 27 amendments to the Constitution, seven (7) took one (1) year
or less to become the law of the land - all because of public pressure.
Warren Buffet is asking each addressee to forward this email to
a minimum of twenty people on their address list; in turn ask
each of those to do likewise.

In three days, most people in The United States of America will
have the message. This is one idea that really should be passed
around.

_*Congressional Reform Act of 2011*_
 
1. No Tenure / No Pension.

A Congressman/woman collects a salary while in office and receives no
pay when they're out of office.

2. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social
Security.

All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the
Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into
the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the
American people. It may not be used for any other purpose.

3. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all
Americans do.

4. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise.
Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.

5. Congress loses their current health care system and
participates in the same health care system as the American people.

6. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the
American people.
 
7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen/women are void
effective 1/1/12. The American people did not make this
contract with Congressmen/women.

Congressmen/women made all these contracts for themselves. Serving in
Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers
envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their
term(s), then go home and back to work.

If each person contacts a minimum of twenty people then it will
only take three days for most people (in the U.S.) to receive
the message. Don't you think it's time?

THIS IS HOW YOU FIX CONGRESS!

If you agree with the above, pass it on. If not, just delete.
You are one of my 20+ - Please keep it going, and thanks.

Helping Fairies with Housing


With the weather changing my fairy friends are going to need some new housing so I am busy constructing some very sturdy log houses for the woodland fairies. Though you may not see them don't you think they could use a warm house on those dreary cold winter days. Maybe you could leave one by the hearth? I know the fairies will reward you with tiny and grand treasures.

Then in the spring help move your new fairy friend's home to a protected place outside. Interested in helping house a fairy visit my Etsy shop at LRStudio

Wall Street Protesters in NYC

"You cannot get sick enough to help sick people get better. You cannot get poor enough to help poor people thrive. It is only in your thriving that you have anything to offer anyone. If you're wanting to be of an advantage to others, be as tapped in, turned in, turned on as you can possibly be."
- Esther Abraham-Hicks, is an inspirational speaker & author.

Reading this today sent my thoughts to all the angry people in NYC and throughout the country protesting. If you want to voice your opinion and protest bravo, it is what this country was all about in the 60's and 70's. By the way the same people and groups were behind that movement as this one. It is exciting to get behind a cause or movement but know what it is. What I see is a mass of people dirty and causing strife for those who are trying to go on with the business of living. People are you sheep being led to slaughter or are you the shepherd?

I also wonder why this did not happen when President Bush was in office? Why now before an election year? Who really is to gain from this movement? Who is the Fed? Educate yourself and then do what you must.

I like money. Is it wrong to work hard and enjoy making money? I use money to benefit others as many companies who trade on wall street do. Remember the USSR? Not a very pretty place. Can you not find a more empowering way to benefit all?

Finally I send a blessing to all even to the ones that do not agree.

Pumpkin Time Treasury List on Etsy

Today I created a Treasury over at etsy.com titled Pumpkin Time. It is a great way to showcase other creative artist' work and makes you feel good at the same time. I have found some truly wonderful handmade items from all over. Things to decorate your home with and to wear. I even found a delicious cupcake. Whether it is in the shape of a pumpkin or the color of pumpkin or the fabulous flavor I am certain you will find something that peaks your interest.

Take a peak and I hope you find something to purchase made by a very special artist and not mass produced in China. Now doesn't that make you feel warm and pumpkiny inside.
