About Me

My photo
Once a California Gal, now a full fledged Northwest Country Gal. I enjoy gardening,antiquing, spending time with my Husband AKA "Cookman". He is such a good cook. Thank goodness. I would much rather be out digging in the yard and planting roses. He is my Hero and best friend. Just being able to take walks with him is very special to me. I have been cancer free for 7.5 years. It wonderful to be able to spend time together. Go for walks, going to movies, or hanging out at Wiggett's Antique Marketplace, in Coeur d' Alene, ID. Our home away from home. We love the owner's, dealers, and customers. Retirement is a good thing.


Located in Wiggett's Antique Marketplace, in the charming little town of Coeur d' Alene, Idaho. One block from the Resort and beautiful Lake Cour d' Alene. The shop has been voted BEST Antique Store in North Idaho the last 2 years.

I thank God for being able to live here. Everytime I drive down town to go to the shop. It is so beautiful. It reminds me of a small town you might see in a movie. In the summer, all the old fashion lamp post are decorated with huge hanging flower baskets. I love it!

Starting to think about what roses to add to the Yard

Great Place to buy Roses My mind is on roses this morning.I found the most wonderful place for roses. Northland Rosarium, located in Spokane, WA. They grow the roses on their own root. The year before I lost 17 roses,. Silly me. It's that California Gal thing. Now I know better.One of my customers at Wiggett's told me about Northland Rosarium. www.northlandrosarium.com. If you love roses and live in Idaho or Washington, this is a must see. They are so helpful! If you go, tell them Jewell sent you. I would love to know what rose (s) you buy so we can share notes. Have fun!

My first purchase for 2010 - Golden West Coffee

O K. I have had my cup of "cowgirl" coffee this morning ( ha, ha) and I'm heading down to Wiggett's Antique Marketplace to start another day of packing up all the Christmas decorations, wreaths, houses and everything else that is Christmas. Except for special antique Santa's, little houses from the 40's and 50's and some mercury glass ornaments and a flock of German Stick Leg Sheep, that I keep in one of my display cases on the mezzanine.
I love my first purchase. Think I will save it for the Farm Chicks Show. That way, I get to enjoy it for a while.

Happy New Year

I look forward to this year. I know with all my heart who is in control and I'm trusting in Him. We started the year off by going to church last night. We attend Real Life in Post Falls, ID. It is a wonderful church. I'm thankful I know, that no matter what is going on around me or in the world, that He is still in control. God Bless you all and happy New Year. Jewell
