What a Wicked Girl............."AKA~Prims Mystery Giveaway"

So as I was saying, I am in utter disbelief, that someone from my own hands has done me so wrongly....well, not only myself, but a dear dear girl that is in herself so innocent a undeserving of the end to which she was the object......but what can anyone do when they are dealt so many lemons at once, than to make a marvelous pitcher of lemonade, and then to drink it all down with a we have decided to make our own little party of all this rubbish....Mifs XXXXX and I, and to the winner, I will make up a special little pin dolly~ just for them~ with their choice of style and hair and dress~ much fun to be had for sure! So what must a person do to participate in our little party? See page 32 in the upcoming premier issue of "Prims" by Stampington & Co.~ you will find us there, and then comment HERE on this post, two things~ WHAT you think the horrid dastible trick was that was played....and WHO played it! I have comments on moderate, so you will not see them until I post the correct answer on April 15th~ all of those who get it right, will go into a little basket, and Pip will draw out a winner! Sound like fun? I think it does!

As for the mischievous one who has been so horribly naughty.... I am still setting her punishment. Rest assured, it will be swift and sure, and most definitely something she will loathe to endure

As for me, the taxes are finished, a few more deadlines have been met, and so shortly I will be posting about the Fundraiser Giveaway for this year... setting the thermometer in the sidebar, adding info about the new Referral Rewards Program, and getting back into the groove of things~ I hope! I am quilting about 6-8 hours a day on the Baltimore now, hoping to meet my deadline for that, and in between, feeding this little guy his bottle 4 times a day! He lost his mamma at just 2 weeks, and is so hungry and FRISKY all the time~ a little Simmental bull that husband hopes to keep for breeding~ we shall see. One thing is for certain, I was not keen on having to bottle feed him from the start, but his big ol brown eyes and those loooong wispy eyelashes tend to grow on a person! Spring is definitely on its way~ I see it coming and cant wait for this snow to end!

And just plain wickedness!!!!

I am so shocked that I have been the end to such dealings, I have been in denial that what has happened is true, but alas, it is. What can a person do, than to blame oneself, for there are things I could have done, and should have done, to secure the dignity of all involved. To be sure, it will NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN. I have not yet decided what punishment the perpetrator should endure....that will come to me when the time is right, until then, I will leave you pondering my predicament....stay tuned, as I am determined to have some fun with it~

Love Immortal.....

I have always thought Valentine's Day somewhat of a somber Holiday...for each of us celebrating with our loved ones, is a sorrowful heart quietly mourning the loss of their true love, soul mate, or kindred spirit. It was this diary entry, and the date that went along with it, that inspired me to offer a Mourning Queen this St. Valentine's Day~

Feb. 1, 1848.

Rain all day. This day my dear husband, my last remaining friend, died.

Feb. 2, 1848.

Today we buried my earthly companion. Now I know what none but widows know; that is, how comfortless is that of a widow's life, especially when left in a strange land, without money or friends, and the care of seven children. Cloudy.

~excerpt from the dairy of Mrs. Elizabeth Dixon Geer Smith, while on the Oregon Trail, 1848.

She will be available tomorrow, Feb. 14th, on the TDIPT Mercantile. I will have also a new squinty Queen on the EW Mercantile, for your consideration. I hope you will stop by and chat a bit, I always love to hear from you! I hope you all have a wonderful, HAPPY Day~ filled with love, both olde & new, and perhaps a sweet or two
