Early Work Mercantile and Life Update

Like everyone else, I'm wondering where the summer went. I won't miss the drought and extreme heat but I'll miss the promise of long days with no particular schedule and enjoying the relative cool of the evenings on the deck. But doesn't seem that once school starts the year just rushes downhill with HalloweenThanksgivingChristmasNewYears? So I will enjoy decorating for fall and Halloween and finished a couple of things for EWM reminiscent of the season.
Both are sold - thanks!
I should probably just work on fall all year long--I certainly have enough patterns to keep me busy!
My Pinterest
I've been a bit of a Pinterest fanatic, but apparently I have been MIA from blogging more than I realized. Yesterday while catching up on blog reading and commenting, I suddenly received a message from Blogger that, due to the unusual amount of activity on my account they were shutting me down. I guess this is for my own protection, but I had been on only about an hour so I was a bit surprised. However, I was somewhat panicked today when I logged on and Blogger indicated my blog had been deleted, but after providing them with my cell phone number all is apparently well. Has this happened to you?
After months of extreme drought, we were finally in the center of the storm that spun off from Hurricane Isaac. Living in Kansas, one of the things we endure, in addition to extreme weather conditions, is clay soil. Unfortunately, when we have a drought like we had this year that means that the soil sometimes shifts pretty severely, affecting foundations of homes causing leaks...
cracks in the drywall and doors that won't close correctly.
Good for those in the home repair and foundation piering business, bad, bad, bad for homeowners.

Blogger does some strange things sometimes. Fortunately, I haven't had that happen to me yet. Why does there have to be droughts and floods? Can't we just have a normal summer?!

Lovely offerings...and how wonderful they sold already!

Goodness I have never hear of that happening in blogland...and needing a cell number? Glad it all got taken care of.

Blessings,
Karen

Your conditions sound like what we experience in Norman, Ok. We have also experienced many smaller earthquakes this last year..enough to crack the foundation and drop a fourth of a corner of the house over 1" and now doors won't close. It's going to take some major foundation jacks and repairs to fix the foundation.
