Here's a little video of my sweet Tulip not long after we first adopted her from the rescue league.  Watch her face as my daughter Brittany gives her a little scratch on her chest!!  What a hoot she is!!

I just LOVE this doggie!!

Great weekend at Winnie!

Had a really great weekend at my shop in Winnie, Tx this past weekend.  We had lots of great customers, really good sales and fun, fun, fun!  My son Jonathan came with me to help and boy, did I need him!!  He is going to try to schedule his job around the show dates so he can be sure to come and help me.  What a wonderful son he is and what a great blessing!

One of the things I enjoy the most about my shop is all the wonderful people I get to meet there.  Customers, new vendors, old vendors, they are all such a blessing to me.  I met a son and father team who were really amazing--the father for raising such a great young man and the son for being a wonderful example of a good future for the country!  To read some of their story go to my new shop blog ---  -- and be sure to 'follow' my shop blog as well!

Things are very busy in the Gill house--my wonderful 4-mo. old grandson is getting more and more wonderful everyday.  I've included a few new pictures of his sweet face.  The shop is still taking a lot of my time, but as it looks better and better, I'm able to sit back a little and relax.

I'm planning a long weekend soon, a break from the stresses of life, a time to just walk and enjoy life.  Not sure when I'll be able to do this, but I feel God is calling me to relax, renew and revive soon!  Looking forward to it cause I know it will be good!!!

Please leave a comment, pull up an 'email chair' and lets talk about life--I'm a good listener!!  And be sure to visit my other blog and 'follow' it!

New projects, new improved shop and more

Well, things have been hopping around here at the Gill house!  Besides my wonderful new grandson Brayden, I've been working hard on my shop in Winnie Tx as well as working on a few new art projects.  Brayden is now 4 mos. old and of course, absolutely the best baby in the world!!  He is the love of my life and a joy--I'm so glad to have him.  

The shop is coming along very nicely.  My sister in law, Diana came over this past Sat. and worked all day with me to get the shop looking beautiful.  Diana is a professional decorator and a wiz at taking odds and ends and making it into a shopping extravaganza!!  I am very blessed to have her helping me--we had a great visit as well.  Thanks to her, my shop is now a great place to visit!!

And, although time is often very limited, I have managed to work on a few projects.  I've included a few pics of 2-deerheads I've been working on.  Hope you like them and I'll be posting pictures of some of the other items I'm working on too!!

            Deer 'skull mount' covered in vintage buttons, jewelry and lots of bling!!

Please be sure to check out my new blog-, dedicated to my shop in Winnie Texas--Remade Life Emporium.  Come by to see me if you're in the area--next show is July 6th-8th.
