Welcome To My Casa Bella
My Casa Bella- means-my beautiful home- but it can mean so many other things. How you make your home a home. The sounds of children or pets playing. The aroma of scones in the oven or a lilac candle burning. The flowers blooming in your garden. The home grown vegetables ready to be picked. Grandma's quilt at the foot of the bed. A fire to curl up to with a good book. Or just a family spending time together with love, laughter and a good time.

Greencastle PA Annual Sidewalk Sales
My friend Valerie and I decided at the last minute to be a part of the Annual Sidewalk Sales held at a local town. They've been doing this for several years now and she and I did it a few times several years ago. So we partnered up with Denise, the owner of Anna's Paperworks in downtown Greencastle, PA:
Valerie and I sell some of our products in her store so we were able to use the space out front. Our display was so pretty, the white canopy makes it looks so chic and dreamy. It stands out which draws people over, which is the point.....lol. We did well, considering how the economy is right now. It's understandable that so many of us are hanging onto our money these days, but it's nice when some decide if they like something enough, they'll buy it. So we had fun. Then suddenly:
The weather man said "rain in the late evening into Sunday morning." Well, by 2:30 the sky was looking scary. Dark clouds going over us, wind picking up. We kept hoping it was going to come later, after the craft show was over, but of course it didn't. It came down so fast, but thank goodness between four of us we were able to throw everything into Denise's store. And thank goodness for Denise's store, otherwise we would of been like many others who were soaked by the time they packed up and took their tents down. So Denise's shop was trashed:
It's amazing how fast you can move when you don't want to get wet. But thankfully for Denise's understanding we were able to move everything into her store then pack it up. It was quite an ending to our weekend. One we won't forget. Our next show will be in Thurmont MD at the annual Colorfest October 10 and 11. So I've got to get to sewing and crafting. That's 13 weeks for me, seems like enough but it's not. Time goes by way too fast. If you're in the area in October come and see us.
Also, if you're ever in Greencastle, PA visiting, come see Denise's shop:
