Someplace in Thyme

I have been creating since I was a little girl. I am happy to say that having my own website has opened up a whole new world for me. Trying new mediums is a joy and sometimes a real eye opener. I sell what I create on etsy and my website, someplaceinthyme. If you have questions,please email me at cpeterson72@q.com. I welcome new blog friends and am honored if you find my little piece of heaven interesting enough to follow.

Fall In Gatlinburg, Tennessee

I spent the last seven days in the beautiful city of Gatlinburg, TN with my husband and two of our closest friends. We were invited to stay at a resort for the week. I couldn't say no to an offer like that one, as you see, fall is my favorite time of year and I didn't want to miss the gorgeous colors of the changing vegetation.
I was amazed at how much decoration there was.....it was EVERYWHERE! Pumpkins, scarecrows and cornstocks. They were tied around anything standing, even had the corn still on the stocks!! Beautiful, large pumpkins were outside buildings, all decorated in the theme of fall. I must say it was very beautiful.
We spent 3 great years in Georgia and loved every minute of the south. There is just something special in the air, the friendly people, the food, a feeling of coming home. Safety maybe? It's hard to explain unless you have been there. I am a city girl, born and raised in the great state of California, but the south has my heart, I must confess. It was hard to leave, but like I have said before, home is where the heart is, or should be...........hummmm??? Has me wondering....
The Great Smoky Mountains were as beautiful as you would imagine. We did a lot of climbing and even saw a black bear. Needless to say, I would love to return some day and repeat the experence......to be continued for sure.

I've Been Very Busy

I have decided to take a break from ebay for awhile. I hope to be back there selling at the end of the month.
I am concentrating my efforts on other sites right now, as there are only so many hours in a day. I am focusing most of my time in my etsy shop, the Friday Flea Market and soon to be opening, Lollishops. On top of taking all of this on, I am happy to announce that I am also selling through the Market Square on Shabby Lane, and am a guest seller on VintageToChic. WHEW!!! That seems like a lot to bite off, but I am having so much fun. This keeps me very busy designing and creating beautiful things for you, and that is what I love to do. Please check back often as I will be adding new items weekly to my shops.
The Friday Flea Market is a concept where talented artists come together on one site, for one day a week, and offer you the best of the best. If you would like to visit us on Fridays, please just click on the red button on the right of this page.
The holidays are fast approaching, so I have been coming up with items for your shabby cottage home and also for use as gifts. Many of my designs would be perfect for teachers gifts, hostess gifts or keep them for your own use. Please sit, enjoy a cup of java, tea or any other beverage and look around............you are always welcome.....
