Update! A week can also mean 32 days....sometimes.

Holy Cannoli! I just cannot believe that a whole week could take this long! I have been busy, then sick, then busy and right back to being sick again! A nasty head cold that I can't seem to shake!
I did get the emails from several of you, and to answer all at once, I am STILL in the process of getting some new items ready for the Mercantile in between all of this and I am fine, thank you for asking. I hope to add a few things tomorrow so stay tuned. Things for autumn, halloween, thanksgiving, and everyday items as well.
My children start back to school on the 8th so, I am trying to fit in a few last minute summer things with them before they go back. Once they are back and settled I will try to be more diligent about getting my items updated. Thanks for your patience and all of your kind emails!
Make sure that you have signed up for the Harvest sign on my blog if you haven't already the drawing will be held on the 31st of August. I will be selling it in the Mercantile as well for those of you who asked.
Take care now!
