My Crochet Story

Grandma taught me how to crochet when I was little. Although I could not crochet, nor had the patience at a young age, I managed to master the single crochet stitch and made countless chains of “snakes”. Today, I love my “I” hook and pass the evenings away crocheting something or trying out new stitches I found online. It’s been many years since Grandma taught me to make those snakes and I think of her often when I am crocheting for my littles. Probably why grandma crocheted too. I wish I could ask her what her favorite hook size

Wood Stain- Simple or Not?

Recently I was in a Facebook group someone posted a question that seemed a little odd at first. “Where does everyone get their wood stain? And what color options are there?” I thought this was something simple everyone knew. How can someone not know where to buy wood stains? How can someone not know what color options there are? There are probably a lot of people that may not know the answer to that question. I wanted to take a few moments and talk about where I buy wood stains and what colors are available. Where do you buy

Our Old Building-Good Vibes To New Owners

Shopping Events & Store Changes

Remember my recent blog post “Where’s Mary”? In quick summary I’m still here and still running around like crazy. I am quickly realizing that if you try to do to much you end up doing nothing well and I’m going to have to find a new way of doing things. So, I’m making time for more junking, creating, and our little shop! I’m pretty excited to end our weekly store hours and start once a month and occasional shopping at Twice the Story. Visit our home page, event page, or Facebook page for dates and times when we will

Over Overly

What the heck happened to the month of July?  Quick recap…still working on the farm house, we’ve adopted a puppy (visit our Facebook page for pics we posted today) and Ragbrai came through Ogden this week.

Where’s Mary

Good morning! Remember the books Where’s Waldo?  Lately I’ve been feeling like Waldo without the red striped sweater. It seems like my presence in the store has been leaving you all wondering, “Where’s Mary”?  I’ve been around but more like everywhere! Last March Bill and I made an offer on a farm house that was accepted, listed and sold our house in Boone and moved to the apartment above the shop.  It’s been a whirlwind ever since.  We will be renovating the old house and are excited to meet with contractors to get things rolling.  The kids have come
