“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
I'm hear to say I'm sorry. On Monday's I feature three shops from the Old Farmhouse Group, I have just found that one of them does not make what they are selling. I think the shop I had listed was handmade, but they have another shop with buy sell items. My blog is to help those who sit at the kitchen table, corner of a bedroom, down the basement working on the items they love to create. Those who work long hours, because they love what they are doing, not after the fast buck, just a love of their art. I have removed the shop, and what I have written about them from the post. I am really sorry that the wool was over my eyes, and they are getting away with this. If anyone who reads this and see that something is not handmade please please let me know. I do have shops from my sisters in Canada, and these ladies work long and hard on their art. My blog is for those who take the time to make something from nothing, and not from a wholesale catalog. Etsy and Artfire are a place for those of us who take the time to make something. Both have a policy of handmade only, but there are some who cheat and think they can a way with it.

There hasn't been much said about the military mom. Yet no wars could ever have been won without her! A military mom is a teacher of independence, perserverance, discipline and integrity, possesses a great sense of humor and can make of any house, a home. She is a woman of quiet strength who has shaped the hearts of our Bravest Heroes and taught them to value peace above all else. The military mom is unshakable in love for her country. That is how she is able to let go of her most precious treasure. A son or daughter. We proudly salute and thank the "Military Mom".
