A Fun Night in the Tree House

WOW! Last bnight was so much fun!  We were all alone and Momma was getting ready for bed when Daddy said "W hat is that sound"? Course we had to go look and believe me it was loud this deaf lady heard it. We looked outside the patio door and low an behold ther was ICE coming down outside.

We decided to take some pictures as the Hail Storm progressed...I couldn't refrain from taking pictures the next day until the ice was gone. Thankfully our cars were not damaged and it is surprising since the hail stones were quite large as you can see.
Hope you enjoy the slide show of April Hail Storm from the Tree House...

Come by the Shweet Potato Dolls Blog at and join my friends.

Catchin Up

Wow It's March already and the Tree House is starting to get hot in here. We did not have much of a winter but what we did have was nice and cold. The grass is green and the flowers have all bursted out in blooms. Sassy Soaps N Such has been closed for a while. Sassy Kassy recdently graduated from Paul Mitchell Hair School and she has passed ALL her Texas State Boards. Me? Well I have havebeen working on making our life healthier especially me. I've lost 25 pounds and I'm eating gluten free and feeling better than I have in more years than I can remember.

We would love to invite each of you to come check out our Shweet Potato Dolls N Patterns' Blog . Soon you will see a makeover here but never fear we'll be in here sharing life in the our Shweet Tree House. If you create Melt n Pour Soaps, (which we still do but for family gifts and personal usage), we hope to share some of our methods and fun things you can do with family and friends.

This past week I pulled out the sewing machine and dressed one of the many nekkked dolls that has been sitting on the table asking for clothes. You can see her on our Shweet Potato Dolls Blog and at  Country Fried Primitives.

Oh one last thing before I go to Dream Land I am so excited to let everyone know I am going to be a grandma in September!
See you all soon and watch for our makeover....Maybe we'll give a doll away.

Sorry it's been so long

WOW it has been a rough have of a year. Love my new Dr and she is trying hard to find a solution to the severe headaches and pain. So sorry I have not been blogging or creating. It's there in my head but just can't get it out.
I have been spending time working on learning things that will help me with my fibro and also learning to be totally Gluten Free since I have Celiac Disease.

It was a wonderful holiday happy Jeremy was home from Iraq and  spending time with his beautiful family in a new home. Oprah today is talking about our wonderful military families and those who come bach hurt or in caskets. If you get time to watch it will give you chills.

Keelee my beautiful oldest daughter has set her wedding date with Jesse for June 11, 2011. We are hoping to be the first in line to rent the Gabazo in Olde Town Carrollton for the services. Can't rent it til March 11s.

My youngest Kassy finished Paul Mitchell and passed phase 1 of her liscensing. Now she needs to take her practial and she will be set to gt into a salon.

Well I decided I have to make up one of the dolls in my head for spring... so off I go.

Hope to see you all soon and hears how you are all doing.

I am so proud of Mom. She gets up every day even in pain and tries to do a little something and this week she has been working on new ornies. I think she needs to stop and write up her Halloween Ornies as a pattern. They are really cute.
She has this bright Day of the Dead doll she worked on like forever and it has been in out living room just hanging out with all of us. I thought she would do well on eBay but Mom insisted she go to hang out in her Poppy Shoppe first. She also marked down some of her Dolls, so come by and help out my mom get her meds. She will be adding one more new thing to her Poppy Shoppe tomorrow and also new Thanksgiving items to her AB4B Marketplace Shoppe.

Fall is in the Air and NEW Issue of Rusty Tin Roof eZine IS HERE!

Oh my goodness next to Christmas, Fall has to be my most favorite time of the year...well really they are tied in my book. Fall in Texas is really like summer ya know, so I think back to my days growing up in Memphis and the leaves falling from the trees and the wonderful fall smell in the air. Course that was over 30 yrs ago but who is counting (shoot I am lucky to remember that far back).

Tonight was one of those sleepless nights but that is okay for 3 reasons. 1. I celebrated Keelee's 23rd birthday with her today (well really yesterday the 16th). 2. We went to Octoberfest to celebrate her birthday and I walked and drank some wine and watched the music and dancing. Course this is the reason I can't sleep but it is so worth the pain! 3. The new issue of Rusty Tin Roof eZine came out today and it is BIG, so hop over and download your copy or just do what I do read it right there. It is BIG so give it time to download. There are free patterns, food to make, articles that filled my night with reading pleasure and made me want to go sew, craft and maybe even paint a little.

Pop over to and click on the Fall Magazine Cover to get your issue today!
Then come by the Rusty Tin Roof Blog and tell DJ and her staff what you liked about the eZine.

Well off to do some more reading and maybe draw out a pattern or two.
Get ready for Fall Ya'll ..cause it is already here!
