New Goodies for Sale!

 Can't believe that it has been over a month since my last post!! I have a few new items to share with you. First off I have a new primitive crow coin purse that will be listed in my Rock River Stitches Etsy Shop tonight. Giving you a little sneak peak!!

I'm working on a couple more purses right now. Hope to have them listed soon. If you have any ideas in a type of coin purse that you would be interested in, post a comment and I'll see what I can do. I'm up for ideas!

Also in my other etsy shop Red Oak Images I have new heart shaped glass photo pendant necklaces!!

Here are a few I have listed among others right now.

And I would like to share a few photos I took in North Carolina while visiting my daughter and family. 

These snow shots were taken one morning. Huge flakes fell for about a half hour. It was just beautiful! Then it warmed up and all of it melted away. The third shot is looking out my daughters living room window. Don't know if you can see the train going by. You can barely see it's headlight. 

Then hubby and I ventured out to Lake Junaluska, which is down the road aways from my daughters house. 

Lots of Ducks and Geese there.

I loved this goose! Thought it was beautifully marked!

These little birds were so cute!! They are American Coots. They weren't afraid of you at all. 

I just couldn't get over how different and cute their little feet were! They swam just like ducks in the water.

And my daughter is lucky to have bluebirds around her house. Something I don't have.

Then my son in law took hubby and I to meet Tom MacDonald. He was on one of the American Picker's episodes. He and his family of 7 kids live in a old motel that they have fixed up. He finds and collects old motorcycles and parts. His kids help him sell the parts on ebay. Tom sold an old samurai outfit to Mike and Frank on the episode of American Pickers. Tom is a friend and patient of my son in law who is a chiropractor.  My hubby was so excited to meet this guy! Hubby loves motorcycles. 

Tom on the left, Hubby on the right. Tom was a very interesting character for sure!! He had to show us his recording studio that he turned a couple of the motel rooms into. And he even played a recording of one of the songs that will be on his new album. Very interesting guy!

This is a photo of one of the old barns that is down the road from where my daughter lives. 

Then on the way home in the car, I got bored and started taking pictures through the car window. I had no idea if they would turn out or not going 70mph. LOL But some of them did like these horses in the field in Kentucky.

And this old Barn. 

So I guess that's about it for now. I promise I won't be a stranger for so long again. 


  1. Love your coin purse. So cute!
    Loving all the photos of those birds too. Such beautiful critters. I think you did a wonderful job getting those photos at 70mph! Woo hoo! :)

  2. Wonderful coin purse and I love seeing your new photos, you do such a beautiful job with the subject and composition.


  3. I simply could not resist that coin purse! Love it! Your photography is outstanding! Love that last pic of the red barn... what a story that barn could tell... maybe that should be your next calendar project... old barns? Congrats on meeting an American Picker's helper! That's a favorite show of mine!
