This Americana Santa is on Ebay right now.  I have had a very late start making my Santas this year, but every chance I get, I'm sewing & painting!  I'm afraid time is moving faster than I can.  ~Debbie

Thought I'd get in here and post a couple of pictures of Buddy I took on Friday.  We just got Buddy about 5 months ago, and we're working on lots of little things with this former "mill doggie".   He really doesn't want to come in the house when I want him to.  I call him and he just stares at me.  If I walk into the house, he will just sit--wherever he was --just sit!  I don't take my eyes off of him and although I wish he would come in without me going to pick him up--its so funny to see him "just sit" where he was.  He's a funny little guy and gives us our dose of laughter every day. 

We're preparing as much as possible for Sandy and praying that everybody in her path stays safe.  Hope she can tell she's not welcome and goes back to sea.  We're close to Dulles IA, so whatever you see happening there is probably what's happening at our house.  Every body's prayers are appreciated!

Hello and Apologies

It has been a while and I apologize for not updating my blog.  I also apologize for not returning emails to those of you asking where I was.  I haven't had good access to the internet until a week and a half ago.  LOTS of things have happened since July 4-- my last post.  For starters, we were dealing with terrible storms that produced war-like debris around our home in Warrenton, VA.  We lost power a few days far too long when the temps and humidity were way up there.  With God's blessings, we survived and flourished.  We were in the process of getting our house ready for the market when the storms set us back a little.  My dh and I are not getting any younger and things take us a little bit longer to do, I must admit.  But we got it done.  We listed our house and had a great contract on it in 4 days!  The next storm began almost immediately!  We had to be out of our house in a little over 6 weeks and had no clue where we would go.  And ohhhhhhhhhh the packing!!!!!!!!!!!!  God is so good to us.  He got us through this just fine.  We are now renting in our old neighborhood in Northern Va where I can honestly say that it feels like home.  My husband's commute to work has dropped from 1 1/2 hours to 25 minutes.  We are fortunate to have a friend that is a realtor that found us a rental home.  It is a beautiful home, furnished which means most of our stuff is in storage.   This can be a challenge, but we're learning to deal with it.  We have contracted to have a home built a few miles down the road from this neighborhood.  They are scheduled to break ground on it next week.  It will be fun to watch and we pray that there will be no delays in the build.

I'm hoping that one more trip back to the storage unit will get me the rest of what I need to start making some Santa's.

I am so honored to have been chosen again as one of America's finest in Early American Life Magazine Holiday edition.  I was pleasantly surprised to see they put a picture of my 2012 George Washington and Abe Lincoln in the magzaine.

My Email address is still the same.  So please drop me a note when you get a chance -

Like Dorothy said, "There's no place like home"!!!

Happy June to all of you!  This set will be my June offering for the update on June 10.  Hope you'll check it out!  He's one of my favorite subjects by far and I can't let a season go by without making an Uncle Sam, or in this case 2! Now I better get going and get his description done to go with him.  Have a wonderful day- Deb

We've Adopted!

I'm so happy to show you our newest additon. His name is Buddy. He's a 4 yr old, wheaten Cairn Terrier. We adopted him from Col. Potter Cairn Rescue Network. It took a little while to go through the process, and arrange a trip to meet his foster Mom to pick him up, but the wait was well worth it. He is so precious and well behaved and now our Winnie has a new companion to keep him from being such a couch potatoe. Hope all of you have a safe and Happy Easter! ~Debbie (If you would like to adopt a Cairn Terrier, please go to for more information.)

Checking In

I know its about time! I apologize that I haven't checked in sooner but with the holidays and an illness, I've just started to feel like doing something worthwhile! I spent a lot of time looking at these walls--probably too much time! I got to take a good look around this house and make some decisions as to just how to get it decorated the way I like. This will be an on-going process! So now I'm finally picking up my art and getting back to normal. It feels good. Happy Belated New Year! ~Debbie
