In an effort to support two very special ( near & dear to my heart ) foundations... I am selling my newest...first ever booklet of home made simples and sending all funds ( split 50/50) to the Susan G. Kommen breast cancer foundation and The Black Diamond Search and Rescue in SWVa. Right now my plan is to sell as many as possible throughout the end of the year and send the proceeds in January 2010. I lost my sweet mother in 2005 to breast cancer and lost my wonderful Dad this past summer when his plane crashed in northern Virginia. Both foundations are going to receive all funds raised by this booklet in their honor. I will post each month ( the 9th of each month ) on the progress ! Each booklet will run $ 15 which includes shipping fare within the U.S.
Thanks so much and please forward any questions to my email
Peace ! ~Rachel

Folk Art Festival

1.5 inches of rain was expected today !!!! wouldn't ya' know?! The rain allowed me enough time to get my 'goodes' under roof and a few shoppers time to purchase ! The rain forced me to close shop early ...but we'll be back tomorrow. Some items from the pictures are sold...but still lots if you're in the area tomorrow (noon- 5 pm) stop by ! Enjoy !
