Welcome Charmer friends!  Summer has been jam packed with projects!  The largest one, giving the Charmer a new look, is completely done, but it's been so hot I have't taken pictures :-{.  There's still two more projects going on, the craft room and the shasta trailer.  It feels like being on carousel in some ways […]

Hello Charming friends!  I hope you all had a wonderful patriotic weekend.

The Fish That Didn’t Get Away
