Merry Christmas to All and to All......


.....a huge and heartfelt thank you!!

tattered 'n torn has had one of our largest years ever....growing by leaps and bounds each and every year and Rick and I want to take a moment and thank each and every one of you for all you support!!

Many of you come to each and every show.....traveling over the miles to visit us.....and we know it!!

Many of you come and wait at the doors only to rush in to see us......and we know that!!

Many of you wait in lines to make your purchases....and we know that too!!

Yes friends.....we see your support......we feel your support.....we are humbled by your support....and we simply cannot put into words our gratitude for you!!

What you may not realize is......you feed us by that support and your kind and gracious words!! You are all sooooo kind in letting us know your appreciation for our work.....it rejuvenates us.....recharges our creative battery......and makes us work even harder to create new and different wares to bring to you!!

So.....because we cannot come up with words sufficient to express our gratitude.....we will simply say, "Thank you!!" and give you our word that we will continue to work hard to bring you only the finest and best wares we can!!

And now.......as we delivered our final order this afternoon......we are done for 2012!! We look forward to a little rest.....a little junkin'......a little dreamin'......until we begin again fresh next year!! Don't worry tho'........on our way home from our delivery.....we were already creatin' in our minds!! :O)

Merry Christmas friends!! And a huge and heavy.....Thanks Y'all too!!

The Time is Now to Decide

This morning I come to you with mixed emotions.....needing to make a huge decision.....not knowing for sure which way to turn.....which path I should travel!!

From time to time.....we all must face weighty decisions.....ones where there is a clear... wiser choice.....but where the less wise decision seems so comforting.....and sooooo inviting!! But alas......there is a "right" decision!! Not a bad choice......comforting and inviting in its' own way.....but still.....a choice that brings on a whole new set of decisions all together!!

And so......I come to you hoping that by putting pen to paper.....words in black and white....somehow this decision will become less difficult......

I truly must choose......

On this Monday morning.....dreary.....foggy.....grey......I must....and so.....my choice is large amounts of coffee.....rather than returning to my warm and inviting bed for a few more winks of beauty sleep!! LOL!!! Buuuut......now I must decide.....Pumpkin Spice or Caribou!! Oh I hate making decisions!! tee hee hee!!

Enjoy your Monday.....whichever path you choose!! :O)
