Merry Christmas to everyone!!!

Christmas eve is tomorrow... unbelievable!!! This year has just flown by. I've been working hard to add new items to my store but I confess, I'm slowing down a little the closer Christmas day gets. Family is spread across the country, coast to coast, and this year it will be just the three of us enjoying that once-a-year HUGE Christmas dinner... myself, my husband Mark, and my Mom (Grammy).... but everyone will be together with us in our hearts!!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Holiday season shared with friends and family.... filled with memories in the making. Christmas Blessings to you all!!!

A real first for me..... a Blog

I've really gone and done it now... First my very own online store:
Stone Hill Collectibles
.... and now my very first Blog.

Soooooo..... what ever am I going to talk about???

I'd like to share some of the behind-the-scenes "action" at Stone Hill Collectibles. Stories about some of my most amazing finds. Some of the things that have really surprised me and taught me a few lessons (mostly good... ha!!!). And what an amazing mess this wonderful and crazy business has made of my home (it's organized chaos...).

From time to time I'd like to share some stories about my Mom, affectionately known as "Grammy". Artwork is her passion and has been for most of her life. I've set up a website for her... and even have some of her wonderful creations for sale in my store (although I have to confess... it's a struggle to let go of anything she's made... I'm really bad about that).

And you'll learn a little about myself and my family along the way... We live way out in the middle of nowhere Central Texas. It's rural, peaceful, no city lights at night (and no traffic sounds, either)
