Thinking Of You

Rita Wheeler

I have been thinking of you!  During this time of "social distancing" my routine has changed. I have been going to the store to check on things.  As I walk in I feel like I should turn the lights on & get things ready for the day to begin just as I have done for the last 4 years.  I begin to take photos of items to put on the online store.  Then I find myself sweeping, moving items around & before you know it, I look at the clock & realize hours have passed. Good therapy for me. These Charms will...

It’s Almost Easter

Rita Wheeler

As a young girl growing up in Marietta, Georgia, I remember how important Easter was to my family. A time for spiritual uplifting & promise of eternal life. My daddy, yes I still refer to him as daddy, my mother, sister Janice & I always went to Church every Sunday as a family. Several things made Easter Sunday special, but as a young girl I knew we would always get a new dress, gloves, new shiny shoes, new hat & of course an Easter Basket. My grandmother who owned a florist always provided a corsage. A beautiful sticky, prickly corsage that would stick...
