Those of you who read this blog fairly regularly (Hi Dad) know that awhile back I started, and abandoned, a new ETSY blog that featured great handmade goodies, called The Trail of Hearts.  I wrote about six posts on it and then abandoned ship. Lord knows just keeping this little blog chugging along is trouble enough.

Speaking of which-can I just mention that last night Sexyhusbandomine was reading through my posts and turned to me and said "If you write about our children being sick one more time I will probably UNfollow you."  And I was all like: "Ok Mr. Funnypants, why don't you do something that merits a paragraph of about 700 words." And he was all, like "You Never Cook!" And I was all like "And you snore!" And then we threw dishes at each other and later made up with wild passionate sex.  (Absolutely not true, Dad.  I made that last part up.)

Anyhoo, a fabulous reader with a fabulous blog of her own Hi! I'm Amy!  stepped in and rescued the blog!  But she didn't just rescue it- she did an extreme makeover on it and now it is A M A Z I N G.  It has buttons and gizmos and her head photoshopped on a skinny body, just to mention a few things.  What it needs is More Followers.  Because little Amy is gonna grow that thing and before you know it, she'll have a book deal and will be selling ad space, and I'll still be trying to come up with 700 words and be funny without having to resort to fart jokes.  So please visit the brand spankin new, totally revamped TRAIL OF HEARTS and give some love to my girl Amy.  Pack a lunch and hit it, but watch out for bears.

I unfollowed it becuz whoever you gave the keys to, instantly held out their hand and want me to donate to some animal rescue group. I run my own shelter and feed 2 dogs, 4 fish, 6 cats, several different wildbirds and furry critters, a pissed off wasp or two and one very patient husband. And I have never asked for a dime from strangers!!

Or did I just dream that?

If say its okay, I'll go back and follow you to the ends of the earth.

I don't use Etsy anymore. I wanted to showcase my totes without having to pay to put them online.

It's NOTHING like Velvettush.
That's my first love. Sewing is somewhere on down the line behind Roy and my car and my shoe collection.

my word today is coden... isn't that in my cough medicine?

I love MzNadines totes. I got a wicked awesome peacock print bag that she made JUST FOR ME.

I also love Amy.

And I love you.

And I love wine. Obviously.

Is that silver? No, scrome!

I've never asked strangers for money, except when I was a girlscout and was forced to sell cookies. I think you might be thinking of another blog that did this Ms. Hightower...

Thanks Lorie for letting me lead the trail for a while. I really enjoy it :)

btw, I love me some Thystle.
