Site Re-Design - what do you think?

Happy Thanksgiving Eve!
I've been multi-tasking like crazy these last few days. Primitive Thymes Gift Shoppe has a whole new look thanks to Jeanne from Jean the Bean. She customized a new layout and graphics and it looks awesome. I've been tweaking it for the last few hours and wanted to know what you thought. Here's a screen shot of the new look. So what do you think. Now I have to get busy and upload some new items that I got for Christmas in between baking and cooking for Thanksgiving Dinner.
I just have to tell you about a cooking blog I ran across a couple of days ago called The Pioneer Woman Cooks. She has the best Thanksgiving recipes I've seen yet. I'm going to try several of her recipes this year including the one for stuffing. Here's the link to go and check it out.
Sounds so yummy! The neatest thing (especially for someone who somewhat challenged in the cooking department) are the step by step instructions complete with pictures. So cool!!
Well time to get off this computer and call it a night.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

It's beginning to feel like Winter

Hi everyone!

I'm finally back after numerous mishaps. My computer took a power hit and fried my hard drive, got that fixed but lost all my information and links. :((

My fiancee had shoulder replacement surgery three weeks ago and then a few days after the surgery his back went out, but he's mending nicely now. And our little Bailey got hit by a car and broke her pelvic bone. She was at Cornell Animal Hospital for a few days and we have to keep her confined for 8 weeks. Imagine a one year old chocolate lab being crated for eight weeks, that's not much fun, but she's on the way to a full recovery. We just have to put a sling under her belly to support that leg for a few more weeks. It's been crazy around here for the past few weeks, but things are getting back to normal. I sure have missed being on line and visiting every one.

There is so much going on with all the blog giveaways. You can just click for hours. LOL

Hope everybody is having a great Fall. Old man winter came to town today! Temps have been in the 50's for the past few weeks. It's freezing here now. Guess it's time to settle in and keep warm. Calling for snow all week. I've got so much to do to update things, it will keep me busy until January.

Stay warm!!
