My New Shop is OPEN!!!!



I have a new endeavor---it is called White Birch Boutique and it is some of the items that I make for the Round Barn Potting Company. I love the fresh look of French Inspired art---in fact--Lori---the owner of the RB pulled me into that whole thing kickin and a screamin---now I can't get enough of it!!! Here's a little sample of what I have listed over in Etsy under my new name--oh--no worries---I am still making my other stuff---now I am trying to see if I can manage all three of the shops over there at the same time--HA!

AND She Does It AGAIN---Makes me LAUGH!!!


AND She Does It AGAIN---yup another installment from my sister who has got an uncanny knack of making all of us girls laugh when it is needed the most---apparently this must be her 'position' in this world---and I am truly happy for that---here is her Friday message to me and my sisters---I about pee'd in my pants!!!! I hope no one is offended by anything in this story---if you are---I am sorry!


Hey Girlies, Once again, I have a funny story to report in regard to those crazy clients of the office across the alley.


You may wonder, can a skin head carry 7 DVD's without a bag, talk on a cellphone, and ask directions to the legal aid office while riding a bike? The answer is NO. I feel personally responsible for this, as he asked if I knew where the legal aid office was and I pointed and said "under that big blue sign that says Legal Aid". He turned to look and crashed into the telephone pole, resulting in a tangled mess of swastikas (sp), sunglasses, DVD's and pride. I was glad to see that he was not hurt, what with the dangling chains and all, it could have been disastrous, but he thanked me none-the-less. I can't help but to feel a bit guilty, especially since I just know his copyof Thunderdome is ruined.It is amazing all the knowledge I have gleaned from these chance encounters in the alley. I would like to share some of them with you.


How many people can you fit into a 1997 Chevy Malibu? 9 1/2, if the dogkeeps his head out the window.

Do you need teeth to whistle loudly? No, but it works best if you would like to speak coherently after grabbing your intended party's attention. Really, all I could get from the conversation was Jess, Watermelon, IceAuger and Goat. Not quite sure how they all mesh together. I just pointed to the big green building, he smiled and nodded.


A stroller NEVER works well on stairs. It's just not engineered for that type of terrain.


When wearing white knit shorts, the wearing of underwear is not an option.


It is not necessary, with a four door vehicle, to have all the doors in working order. All you need is one. Climbing over the front seat is not a problem, unless you are wearing a tight dress. Coincidently, this trick also works with minivans--as long as the back hatch opens, it's all good.


And last, but not least, the mullet, as a hairstyle, is not dead. It is alive and well and living in Northern Minnesota.Have a great weekend! m.


AND THERE'S MORE!!!!

OMG!!! And I am not making this up.....I just got another tip from the Crazy Parking Lot Clients--more words to live by--Friday must be bonanza day or something. A depression in the black top of a parking lot, strategically placed in front of a door (big white metal pannelled structure, brass knob about halfway down), marked with a mat on the ground that says "Welcome" signifies that you have parked in front of a doorway. We apologize for the dents in your bumper, however, we were not aware you had parked in front of our door until we had opened said door.
