Wood n' Whimsy

Hey ya'll! It's been a few days since I've had time to post anything. I had a booth in a craft show and taxes to keep me busy this past week. Taxes, ugh!! Oh, well their done now. Next year I swear I won't be a last minute Lucy. Of course that's what I said last year and the year before that. I'm really going to try to keep up with it all this year.

As some of you know, I own a small rural craft and antique shop. I am revamping this blog to showcase some of the crafters and their hand did items displayed in my store. Not only will I be able to show them off, but perhaps I can make a few sales for them along the way. I will also be showing some of the vintage and antique items offered at my little country store.

If you have any interest in purchasing anything you see in this blog or my Wood n' Whimsy blog or have questions please let me know . Please check back with me often and leave your comments. I'd love to know what you think of my store and crafters. If you would like to add me to your blog list, just let me know and I'll add your blog to mine, too. Helping each other is what it's all about. Til next time, God Bless!


This is the view of my shop you see when you enter the door. That huge antique gray granite coffee pot on the floor is an old commercial restaurant pot. I'd run screaming the other way if the waitress came at me with that. The primitive wooden shovel is an antique snow shovel. The basket on top of the ladder is an old tobacco drying basket.

Our all year Christmas Shoppe 'round at the Treasure Chest. Everything you see here is made by Wood n' Whimsy. (that's what my friend Pam and I call our wood crafts)

Thanks for visiting my blog! I hope you enjoyed your stay. :)

You have great treasures at your shop! Wish I was closer to pay a visit!

Just wanted to let you know what I did to change my layout of my blog. I had the traditional layout from blogger so you shouldn't have a problem. I copied the the pyzam code of the blog layout I wanted then I went over to my blogger Dashboard. Then I went to layout and then to edit HTML. Where it says Edit Template, you highlight it all and delete then you paste your new code. After that it says how to save and so on. I think I pressed to many ok's or something because I lost my little extra fun stuff in my sidebar and bottom bar. I hope this helps. I'm a computer dummy so it seemed easy to me to change the layout with Pyzam.

I'll be back soon to visit! Have a great evening!
