An early penny rug for sale...

I wanted to share this on the blog and it will also be on the website. One of my customers is wanting to sell a wonderful early penny rug. She is asking $225 (plus shipping). It is a unique rug measuring 36" x 21"; it is done in mostly dark blues and grays; it has a crocheted edging. It was purchased at an estate sale in VA years ago. The note with it stated that it had been done by "Grandmother Brubaker"- along with some other info. The backing is done with old denim. Please feel free to e-mail or call if you would like more info on this wonderful piece. Thanks for your interest.

Back in the garden...

Finally, after weeks of unbearable heat, we seem to be getting a break. I am finally able to get out into the gardens and see what's going on. My zinnias have suffered from the terrible heat and lack of rain but I hope they will perk up now that it has cooled and had some much needed rain this weekend. I am trying to get the weeds out now- they grow no matter what. The figs are also coming in and are quite delicious. We are selling them as fast as we can pick them. The tomatoes and cantaloupes are pretty much done and the okra is still giving a good fight!! I should have just a few more weeks of the okra to pick, freeze and enjoy this winter. Enjoy these cooler days and try to see what's happening in your garden.

Please be sure to check out the website as I continue to put items for sale on- just added a couple of cupboards!!
