was junking this weekend, I ran into a friend who told me about a friend (Terri Kemper) who had just been
diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer and was given only days to live. I met Miss Terri a few years back at
her cute little cafe, The Veranda.....she had the cutest little cafe in Hendersonville, and by far the
most delicious. Have you ever found a little quaint cafe you just love to go to......a place you dream of going
to every week.... somewhere you get excited just thinking about it....a place where the atmosphere is so
pathetically relaxing, you could sleep there for days? Well, you should have visited The Veranda.......that cafe
was all that and more. It was located in an old farm house that she shared with Traci Collins, who owned
One Man's Treasure. Together they created the most succulent atmosphere.....my favorite place of all
times.....no joke. I tell you the truth, I have yet to find anything any better.
Miss Terri has spent the past four years devoting her time to cooking for the homeless...you heard me
right....cooking for the homeless. So now she lays in a hospitable bed awaiting a very risky surgery that she
must have if she wants to live. She has no insurance but the hospital has agreed to perform the operation if
she can pay "something." The hospital, for some odd reason, will not give her an amount but she is trying to
raise 2500.00 by next Wednesday, which is the scheduled operation date.
If you could take a moment and visit my personal FB page to bid on a few handmade items some of my
friends have graciously donated for here benefit, I know she would be most grateful. Her faith is strong, yet
I feel we need her a little while longer here on earth. You can also go here to make a donation which goes
directly to her family.
On a sunnier note, check out this cool junk my husband and i got this weekend while in Nashville hitting flea
markets, yard sales, moving sales and estate sales......no Goodwills this time.
I have been searching far and wide for these letters.....
and for these locker baskets.....
not sure what this is but i loved the color....
I got this painting at an estate sale.....I am a sucker for original art!
And just so you know, I have been working on things for the Fall Barn Sale (Sept. 8-10).
Funky it is.
