“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
This week I have some very different shops from out team. The first shop comes from a small town in Illinois. Karen runs Fine Old Things, which is filled with wonderful vintage items. You will find vases, jewelry, figurines and a lot more. Add to your collection or replace a missing or broken item. Karen hunts estate sales, for the best items to offer. Going through her show was going back to my childhood, visiting my Aunts, and family friends, many of the items I have grown up with. When you are done with you visit to Fine Old Things, stop over at her other shop Expressions 123. This shop has note cards, fridge magnets and table decor, all hand made by Karen.
The next shop will make you hungry. Bonnie from First Fruits lives on a farm in the upper part of Michigan. She has the best marshmallows! Plus jars of jam and jelly, cookies, gloves and hand warmers. The jam and jelly can be pick from a list of about 26 flavors. Get some for yourself and to share with a friend. Bonnie sells at all the local farm markets each week, and sells around 6 dozen jars of jelly each week, with many being repeat customers. She has to be doing something right, to sell so much each week. All of her food is made in a commercial kitchen inspected by the state of Michigan

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".
