“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
Welcome to a new year, and some more great shops from The Old Farmhouse Gathering. Today I have just two artist for you to look at, but we will be visiting five shops on Etsy. So on this cold day in January, get something warm to drink and lets go for a visit. The first shop is The Quilted Pumpkin. Laura is a busy stay at home mom, who works with quilt shop fabrics and wood. Nothing in her shop is made in mass production a lot of care goes into her work. When you are done looking over this shop stop by her other shop called Wild Thyme Threads. You will find pincushions hand made. The next shop for you to visit is Thrifty Notion. Bette has this shop filled with patterns, pattern books, vintage items. Looking for something new to make this year then stop by, and see what she has to offer. Bette other shop is called Tomorrows Treasure, filled with e-patterns. Purchase a pattern, download it to your computer and you are off and sewing in hours. If you do not have time to sew or know how, the visit her third shop called Handmade by Better. Bette has this shop filled with finished items. Love the fabric baskets and bags. Check out the clothes pin bag. Never to early to get one, we will have warm weather to hang clothes outside soon! Enjoy your visit with all five shops and come back next Monday.

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".
