Early Work Mercantile

Happy June!!! I can't believe I am writing that but it is true. Even though the winter was long,were did the time go. We are still working in the garden and I haven't finished my spring cleaning. I even have weeds that still need pulling. Usually we have everything done before Memorial weekend. I am hoping to get everything finished in the next week.
  I do not have an update tonight but I just wanted to let you know early work mercantile is no longer .com. The new address is . So if you were having problems finding E.W.M. that is the reason why. So if you have some time head on over and check out all the wonderful treasures being offered there.
  Have a happy June my friends and God Bless,

Early Work Mercantile update tonight

WOW, It has been while since I have posted here. I am sorry for that. A lot of stuff going on here at home and so I haven't spent much time on line.

Tonight is the first of the months update at Early Work Mercantile for the month Of August. Miss Hetty above will be there and If you get chance pop on over for a visit she will love it. Hetty is my second hand carved wooden ( with a layer of clay around her head and shoulders) I am offering there. She was a lot of fun to make and we had much fun trying to pick out just the right piece of fabric. Hetty really is a humble little creature, but just a little fussy on the fabric. I wanted to go frilly frilly and she just would not go for that. I have to add might I think the lady was right. 
I hope the summer has been enjoyable for most of you, have a wonderful evening and 
God Bless,
