Bonus piece: My very own vintage full-sized bed, recycled into a bench. This isn't a new idea, but I did do one thing a little different. I had my talented craftsman keep the foot board turned side rails at exactly at half-size (most of the time they're cut-down to make the finished product a more traditional bench size). It conveniently fits a crib size mattress and still has room for lots of pillows for comfort. I'll show you the finished product when I get the cushions and pillows. I'm just so happy with I had to show you!So, there you have it. Custom-made furniture at crazy affordable prices! Call or email me for more details or to place your orders. Place and order for your custom piece before August 7th and receive a Paddywax soy wax candle as your gift from me!

Recycled tin flower hooks. Great in the kitchen holding your hand towels or aprons.
Some great new baskets--one a tote, the other a storage basket--both handmade from using grasses and leather.
These are just a few of the great new items we're checking-in almost daily. Come see us at Hodgepodge to get something special for you or a friend. If you're not in the area--give me a call, we'll get them shipped out to you before you can say Priority Mail!
Thanks for your indulgence!

So, I had a great time with Leslie, then Sheila. Completely blew my plans for a blog a day, but I hope you understand. I hadn't seen Leslie in 5 years; it had been 2 years since Sheila and I spent time together. We had a lot of fun, talked endlessly and solved each other's problems.
Two more days until I grab the kids at the Nashville Airport. They're having a great time with Mimi, Granddad, Aunt Nikki, Uncle Bill and cousins. I miss them terribly.
Every time I'm with Sheila, she does so much to inspire and motivate me. I wish I could put her in my pocket! I've got lots of ideas for the shop. Some big moves, some new markdowns, some new inventory. Stay tuned for updates.
So, are you loving our weather? This has to be the most beautiful July on the books. What are you doing to make the most of it? I'm trying to spend as much time as possible outside. Sheila and I enjoyed and afternoon of conversation and light dining on Sunday. She made an incredible watermelon salad: She chopped up about 1/4 of a watermelon, crumbled 2 ozs. of goat cheese and and tossed them together. She then added 1 tsp. of toasted black sesame seeds; sprinkled the mixture with some balsamic vinegar and, I think, a little honey. OH MY GOSH! I'm jonesin' for this salad!

If the sheer number of buyers at this market is any indicator--everyone is feeling better about the economy! I know I placed some huge orders, so I hope everyone is feeling better. I'll give you about 15 - 30 days to prepare (coincidentally, the amount of time it'll take for my orders to start rolling in . . .), but after that, you'll need to start shopping again!

mine . . .
Taylor's on her door . . .
Mom and Dad will be here today. Perhaps in time to catch Haedyn's last performance as Mushu in Mulan, Jr. (They made it before I posted!)
In particular is our service member . . .
I'm proud of that uniform, but like this look much better . . .
God Bless America!
Thanks for your indulgence~
