Thefts at the store

I have had a couple of thefts at the store lately. Someone stole a radio flyer wagon, unfinished wood pieces, a white wood rocker, and now I am missing two flower pots, a sheep and a cowboy boot. Why do people do this type of thing to people? They were sitting outside my back door at the store. I think that someone stole the wagon when I was working at the store.

Guess I am going to have to get some cameras. Yes, I did call the police and report them. I have also driven up and down a few of the alley ways checking in yards. Will do that for a while to see if I can find them. The wagon didn't have my name on it, but the chair did. Won't they be surprised where I put my name, unless of course they paint it before I find it.

What's New This Week

I finally feel like I have gotten something accomplished. It sure feels good. I finished some Primitive Americana Stars, and Primitive Sheep, along with an Americana Sheep. They sure are cute and now looking for new homes.

All of these items are in the store, and I should have them on my website before the weekend if finished, along with a few more collectables.

I do have several dolls are that in need of clothes and I hope to get them clothed by the end of next week and they will all be ready for new homes.

The Speckled Goose celebrates 3 years

That's right ~ We will be celebrating our 3rd anniversary on July 15th. To celebrate, Haley and I will have refreshments all week (brownies, cookies, & more), and samples of our yummy dips.

I can hardly believe that I have had the pleasure of visiting and meeting all of our wonderful customers, and creating unique one of a kind dolls, stitchery's, pillows, and so much more for 3 years now.

I have enjoyed every day of the past three years (maybe with the exception of shoveling the parking lot and sidewalks of snow) that I can not believe working anywhere else.

If you have time, please stop by and say "Hi", share some refreshments with us, and you'll also enjoy 20% off your entire purchases during the week of July 15 th - July 18th (with the exception of consignment items).

Thanks again for 3 great years!! Our Customers are the BEST!!!

What's New This Week

Well not much is new this week. Things are kind of disorganized for me. I had to take an unexpected trip to Texas for a few days, so that threw everything off schedule. I hope to get back on schedule this week. I am in the process of cleaning up all of the tea cup sets that I got a week or so ago.

Mark and I got to go to Greeley Stampede and see Kid Rock. That was a great concert. I love some of his songs, but with the rap I wasn't sure I would enjoy it, but he was great. We got rained on for about 10 minutes, but it didn't ruin or even slow down the concert.

John has been spending a lot of time the last couple of weeks with his grandma and grandpa from Oregon. He has been doing a lot of showing off, and steer riding for them.

What's New This Week

I picked up a radio flyer red wagon this past week. Now all I have to do is figure out what I want to do with it. Do I clean it up and sell it, or do I clean it up, and plant flowers in it and, then either keep it or sell it? Decisions, Decisions.

I recently went to an estate sale and this gal had a beautiful collection of tea cups and saucers. I picked up all I could. You'll have to stop by to check them out. They are really pretty and some very unique sets. I also picked up some USA Pottery, and a few more salt and pepper sets.

I am in the process of putting a couple of fabric frogs together. All I have left to do is dress them, and create their faces. They are looking really cute, and they are a lot of fun to make. I have painted a few new birdhouses, and am working on some Americana stars.
