Full of Complex Carbohydrates and MicroNutrients

I am a novelty to many (and I'm fine with that).
I have a very silly sense of humor usually riddled with malapropisms (and I'm fine with that, too).
I ask too many questions of Life and I expect all the answers.
I trust people too easily when I shouldn't; however, I respect everyone regardless…unless they do something to make me think twice.
I don't cheat. I am tactful yet will give the truth up front (and never mean to hurt anyone's feelings with it).
I like to help the people who have helped me, and even those who have not.
I never forget... but sometimes I misplace things.
I never lose hope.
I am awesomely blessed for the people who have come into my life, and I am blessed for the people who have left because I realize I didn't need them anyway.
I honestly feel that laughter is the best medicine you can have.
I believe in being strong when everything else seems to be going wrong.
I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles. In other words, I'm human, and definitely not perfect.
But tomorrow is another day, and there's so much cheese to be had...

SOLD! (Pumpkins - Established 2009)

SOLD! To Ethan Black of Mount Juliet, Tennessee!
Thank you, Ethan. I know it will find the perfect place in your home!

I love digging around for lost treasures! And I surely found a trove of it when Mark and I bought this old farm property. One excavation in our pasture and barn last summer turned up some ancient-looking wood that was partly-buried near the back fence. Most people would've simply tossed it out, but I tend to "see" things in old junk, and this piece absolutely begged to be reincarnated in a funny and rustic sort of way.

We love pumpkins and Jack O'lanterns and all things Halloween, and had wanted to plant a pumpkin patch for many years. I figured, why not make a really cool pumpkin patch sign? After cleaning off the wood I painted it with a variety of acrylic colors, including some bright neon that would give it an extra-special glow, and double-sprayed with a matte sealer. It reads "Pumpkins established 2009" and will make a perfect addition to anyone's autumn home decor, or affixed in a place of honor at their pumpkin patch entrance.

Who knows... perhaps the Great Pumpkin himself will pay you a visit!
