Substitute Blogger!

Hello everyone! 
 Yes, it's been a while since Ruth
has put up a new blog post.  
Never fear!
She is doing fine!
My wife has been incredibly busy lately!
That's not a bad thing, though!
Of course, having me home for a well deserved vacation
has kind of kept her occupied along with plenty of other
stuff going on around here!
( I haven't been a lot of help, so I offered to do a post for her,
and she actually caved in and let me!)

We did get in a new shipment of the Autumn issue of the Jeanne d'Arc magazine.
All the pre-orders we have will be shipped within the next 
couple days, so you should have them soon!

Also, we got in some new vintage canvas bags and pillows.
Those will be up on the store site as soon as 
we can get pictures taken.

I am reminded of how much effort really goes in to running a store,
even if it's totally online...that might even be more work 
than an actual bricks and mortar store!

Despite my usually busy schedule, I want to help Ruthie whenever I can,
so I was thrilled that she actually let me do this post!

"HUBS"...  :)

Ruth really appreciates everyone who has been following this blog,
and all the friends who have been asking about her!
I'm sure it won't be long until she has another post, might even here from me again!

Way to go, Doug! I don't think my dear husband will ever post to my blog unless it's to tell my followers I've had an accident. Hugs to Ruth, and Please tell her not to overdo it. You're a gem for helping out with a post. (He's a KEEPER, Ruth!) ;-)

How-de-do, Doug! Not many fellers brave 'nuf to come round these parts. I bet you can relate to my husband today...earlier this evening I stood in the middle of the kitchen staring up towards the ceiling. He stopped, looked at me, and said in a high voice "hmmm, what should i hang there?" You guys are the best :) Big hug to Ruth for me :)

Hi Doug (and Ruth),

What a nice surprise. I think it is wonderful that you stepped in and did a post for her. Your wife is a very special lady but you already know that.

Please tell her that I appreciate her visit and her kind words. It is a blessing to know that so many people in blogland are praying for Jeff and the family.

Hugs to you and Ruth,

Hi "Hubs"! Tell your lovely wife hello from Leigha.
Take care...

Mary said...

Well, Ruth is a beautiful lady but you're not so bad yourself Doug, especially stepping in to give her a hand when she's so busy minding the store!!

Watching the mail anxiously for my new magazine - I have the mug (actually bought 3!) so am ready to make a cuppa, open some chocolate, and read about beautiful things in Denmark!!

Tell Ruth I said hello. Look forward to your next post!

Nothing is sweeter than a supportive husband! Can't wait to see the new canvas pillows!

north pal said...

hey,way to go. you have done a great job and have to say that it was very nice to hear from you. Ruth can trust you with this job anytime she chooses. i usually about this time check in with Ruth when we do not hear from her in awhile. i like to make sure everything is o.k. with her. didn't do it at this time,because i trust that she is so busy and everything is o.k. i know you know this, but Ruth is a very dear person as you know,but when God was passing out gifts, He gave you an extra special honey. greet Ruth for me. Bestest,Denise

Bravo Mr. Beautiful Life! I dont think my husband would offer.....blogland as he has observed is full of decorating crazed ladies! Too scary but perfect for a Halloween fright!

Well done!
