Okay, what do say we bottle up this heat and use it this winter....honestly, it's gonna be a HOT one this week! Up until now, the weather has been pleasant and no humidity. Kinda having a hard time making up it's mind!
Regardless, we had a lovely time at the Trading Post this past week end. Still a lot of people from out of state and visiting family. Several folks had purchased cabins on the Lake and were buying up decorating items for country flavor in their places. Nice crowd. Now, I know why the craftspeople and vendors at the Post carry such a variety of things....something for everyone and it certainly proves true all year long.
Speaking of vendors, I have some recent news in that department. We have opened up another booth featuring handcrafted glassware. JD will be also working on large porch benches for fall. If you have a certain size of outdoor bench that you want for your garden or on your porch or entry way or kitchen inside your home, please come into the Trading Post and place your special order. JD makes gorgeous benches and prices them reasonably. Measure the area you wish to place your bench and it WILL be made to order!
Another new vendor will be added gorgeous antique pieces to the Barn. She will be in the booth with Karen Brackman, who is our woodburning artist and painting expert. Our famous gourd lamp artisan, Jai Sheronda, will be featured in the upcoming art show at the Cannon County Art Center. Make sure you visit his display and also meet him at the Short Mountain Trading Post where he works on his special craft on Saturdays.
The Short Mountain Distillery will be hosting their Music Jam at the end of this month. It's supposed to be a real ZINGER! Don't miss out! Tickets can be purchased on their Website or at the event. The new Restaurant is also soon to open with a menu like no other! Short Mountain has really taken off and we are all so happy to be part of it!
Remember the Halloween event coming up at the Trading Post on October 11th. FREE SPACE offered to those who wish to vendor at the flea market part of it. Along with those who wish to sell baked goods, foods, fresh produce, etc. A lot going on that day....so call me, Savannah to reserve your free space or further information: #615-464-7824.
The other day when my preacher was visiting me, he said that as we grow older we need to really be thinking about the hereafter. I told him, Oh, I do, all the time. No matter where I am, in the parlor, upstairs, in the kitchen, or down in the basement.....I ask myself: Now, what am I HERE AFTER?
Gonna run for now, Folks, Just remember that kindness is a universal language: one that even the blind can see and the deaf can hear.
Take care of each other, Smile and think happy thoughts. Chat with you next week.
