Abe Lincoln

“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich...strengthen the weak by weakening the strong...bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift...lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down...build character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and independence...help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves." -Abraham Lincoln

Monday October 5, 2009

I can not believe it is the first Monday in October!  I spent last week in PA helping out my mother in law, and Christmas shopping for her.  Had a great time with my husbands family, and enjoying the colors changing up in the mountains.  The weather started to cool down, and it was just nice sitting on the front porch watching the world go by.  So I did not get a posting down last week, but I'm back with some more great shops for everyone to look at.  So get something good to drink, and get your holiday shopping list out and let see if can not some one crossed off your list today.  While you are shopping for people on your list remember yourself, and what you could add to your home.  Bring back some good old fashion memories this Fall and Holiday season.  When you are done looking at these shops, please type OFG into your search bar for some more wonderful shops to look at.  Enjoy your day!
