Upcoming Items at Country Keepsakes

With a new year comes new ideas, that is what we are working toward here at Country Keepsakes and Country Keepsakes Wholesale.
Coming soon are muffins in pans with fix’ins, pecans, rosehips and drizzle. They look so good you might not want to burn them; but just don’t eat them…They will come in certain scents, and colors. You will be able to choose from 1 muffin in a tart pan with the extras up to 3 muffins in a bread pan with the fix’ins. I have included some pictures to better illustrate.
Let me know what you think-I am trying to decide what scents they will come in, and what color combination I am going to offer. You see them arrive on the sites by the end of January.
Also we will be adding Tomato Sage to the line up for our candles & melts.
Do you have a favorite scent? Let me know what it is. I am always interested in what my readers/customers have to say.


2009 Here We Come!

I have to admit I have dreaded today~all weekend. The kids going back to school, the schedule, the busy-ness. But then it occurred to me, if time didn’t move then where would we be? Stuck. I don’t know about you but I know that half the dreading was in my head. Once I get myself up, ready and out the door I realize the dreading wasn’t worth it. I play that “game” in my head. Positive thoughts, Positive thoughts, then a negative thought comes in and destroys it. Well I have decided that I am going to embrace each day~feel appreciative of what I do have and try to concentrate less on what I don’t have.
Take for instance our washer & dryer. It came with the house, no one knows how long it will last us. I thought for sure New Years Eve day I had over loaded the washer and it was gone forever. But it wasn’t thankfully. Then a few days later we ran out of propane. But they came and filled it so I was back in business this weekend. How Thankful I am for clean clothes. It sounds small when there are larger things, but heck, clean clothes are a major deal. Especially with 3 kids. So I am Thankful for each load I put in dirty, and each one that comes out dry and clean….its the little things we take for granted in life that we need to be Thankful for. So yes today I am Thankful for my clean clothes, my healthy kids, my warm home and a loving husband. I am Thankful that I have been given another day~and I look forward to 2009 for all it has to offer. BIG and small.
What are you Thankful for today? How have you been blessed? Even the smallest thing as clean laundry is something to rejoice about. Have a great day and just try and be Thankful!
