Mountain Crafted Yarn Mister Rooster Cogburn

Hello everyone, I'm writing about a situation that I'm sure could be challenged in court and proved to be of inadequate information and as a downright tale of fiction or in more basic English, a lie. But, I'm standing here alone and with hesitant conviction stating that all in this writing is true and has not been embellished.

We now have an uninvited guest among us. This guest is a one eyed game rooster Debra named Rooster Cogburn. In most cases this fowl of unscrupulous intentions would not bring forth much if any interpolation or speculations. But, as I iterate with pen and paper the deeds of this incredible devious cockerel or to be more exact a downright crafty beggar who in many ways reminds me of a great uncle I have, my worries are that my dear Wife Debra has been completely manipulated by this roosters undeniable nefarious tactics of acquiring sustenance on a daily basis.

Neighbor, to bring this undesirable mishap to an even higher crescendo, Debra feels that what I'm writing about this pathetic transient rooster are not coherent she feels his actions are of the most upright and of honorable intentions. I hereby firmly state that his intentions are calculating and focused on his personal gain; to be more exact, free grub. I must admit that I am somewhat intrigued by his tactics and method of achieving his nefarious goal of gaining sustenance without gainful employment. I believe it is time for me to expound and to authenticate on Mister Rooster Cogburn's underhanded and despicable deeds that he performs to cause an unsuspecting soul to fall for his tantalizing methods of brain washing.

Hereby I give the unadulterated truth of the manner and must leave the final decision of credibility of truth or false to your intellectual expertise. First of all, this conniving beast of a fowls has with I'm sure with planned and strategic forethought orchestrated his appearance of undeniable state of desolate and circumstances that would cause most any unsuspecting person to rush to the aid and give forth any and all assistance to ward off the demise of this poor unknowing and innocent victim whom has fallen into times of personal unforeseen tribulations. In other words, shovel out the chow to him!

You may ask, "How does this poor and harmless scavenger pray upon defenseless victims?" And a good and reasonable question you have requested to be answered. I shall commence to expound on the facts as I see them.

Mister Rooster Cogburn one day was found to be haphazardly wondering around in our front yard for what seems to us for no particular reason. But in only moments we were suddenly confronted with his sounds of sorrow, loneliness and despair. Which Debra at haste went back into our home and returned with bread and staples fitted for a king. After enjoying his meal and I must add without any reasonable etiquette the said rooster commenced to sing for his meal or actually crow at the astonishment of both Debra and myself. As you will be able to establish for yourself with my further writings, this was the beginning of a never ending scenario. And a planned plot by stated chicken!

With diligent investigation we have mutually come to the conclusion that Rooster Cogburn belong to no one in this valley and obviously has no home to call his own. If you are one of a tender heart, do not despair for one moment more. In fact as you shall see as I continue with Rooster Cogburn's scheme you might want to follow his example, give up your own home and enjoy the fruits of your labors without having to do any labor at all. We have spoken with our neighbors within this valley and we all have come to the same conclusion that good old rooster Cogburn has purposely laid out a plan so that he can feast off the fat of the lamb without having to ruffle a single feather.

Here is how this devious bird has accomplished his goal. At around 6:45 AM he will make his presents known to our home by roosting on our porch railings and then commence to crow as if ordered by god to bring forth the new day. He will continue with this ear splitting nuisance until Debra will come out to the porch with food in hand, sit on the porch and hand feed him. You heard right, he will come to her and take his morning offerings right out of her hand. Then to top off his scam, he will make gurgling noises in his throat to her. Debra believes he's talking to her. I know better, he is only a practitioner of evil intent.

After he notices that he has diminished the bounty, he will bid his adoes and head for our neighbors house and exactly duplicate the same strategy to them what he has accomplished with us.

I could understand if this was an occasional occurrence, but Rooster Cogburn has this deception down to a fine art. Not only does he have his internal clock to arrive at our home at 6:45 AM, he returns at noon and to finish off the daily rations he arrives around 3:30 to 4:00 PM for his evening snack. Now folks think about this for a minute. There are 3 houses in this valley on this side of the river. Rooster cogburn is wondering from one home to the next and enjoying delicacies such as pizza, cookies, bread of all sorts, dog and cat food, he's even known to partake of candy. OK you might say, he's doing well for himself being homeless and all of that. Well please allow me to expound on Rooster Cogburns way of showing his appreciation for what he is receiving.

I have to clean and scrub my porch down every other day because of the thank you OFFERINGS Rooster cogburn leaves deposited daily. Not only I have to partake of this discussing chore, but it has been reported by our other neighbors that they also have their own established routine of cleaning their own porch.

I shall end with this humble statement. Debra is the preparer of meals in this home. So, when she speaks of how a sweet boy Rooster Cogburn is and how he is just so wonderful how he takes food from her offering hand, I speak not and grab my scrub brush and water hose and commence to cleaning the porch. Because I know that if I choose to take a stand against this evil, manipulating, discussing and conniving rooster, I will end up eating my own food out of a can with a spoon!

With humility and humbleness, Barry

Bayberry Candles, Room Spray & Home Fragrance Oil

Hello folks, I want to start off with this fragrance description by stating that this is not one of those everyday forest tree scents. Oh no, this is quite a unique aroma indeed.

These mixtures of fragrance oils has been blended so that one moment you are smelling Douglas Fir and next is sweet Balsam then out of nowhere comes delicious spicy Nutmeg and Ginger scents.

I'll be honest, I almost didn't order a sample of this fragrance because of course when I heard the name Bayberry, I automatically thought of trees, Christmas and all the rest that goes with those types of fragrances. Boy was I wrong and I'm sure glad I ordered the sample.

Does it smell like trees such as a Douglas Fir? Yes it has the scent of the Douglas Fir. Does it have sort of a holiday season fragrance? Well yes, it does. Is it one of those one of a million Christmas time fragrances? Absolutely not!

What make this scent so different are the expertly blended mixtures of oils that capture whatever product there being use in? I'd almost go as far as to say that this fragrance has different personalities. One minute there's one aroma and then the next something totally different. This one will draw you back again and again.

This is a long lasting & powerful room filling fragrance that I feel is uplifting and instantly produces a holiday season mood.

Try this in our candles, room spray & home fragrance oil and see for yourself, you might catch yourself saying, "My my, where have you been all my life!"

Wax Tart prices have lowered!

Hello everyone, I thought I'd write to inform you that finally we have been able to achieve a better shipping rate for all the ingredients needed for Tart Melt Candles.

Ok, you might ask, "What does this mean to me?" What this means is I'm now able to lower the prices on the tart melt candles and the bundles. I have lowered the tarts to only $0.99 per candle. I will within the next few days also be lowering the bundle tarts.

These prices will not be changed unless we lower them for a Flash Sale. You can depend on these prices being fixed. Our suppliers will hold fast to their price quotes so that we can offer the savings on to you.

I've never been happy with what we had to charge for these candles in the past. I knew that if I dug deep enough searched long enough and talked enough where the suppliers got tired of my calls that they would help by lowering their prices on supplies. The only catch to this scenario is that we have to purchase now in bulk. Which really is better, that means I always will have what is needed on hand and no back orders.

This is Barry writing this and Debra and I want to thank all of you from the bottom of our hearts for hanging in there and supporting us during our growing pains. Finally we are getting to the point of being able to achieve our original goal to offer quality products that you deserve at an affordable price!

Shea Butter (White) is now available on

Hello everyone, hope all is well. We would like to mention one of our products of white shea butter that we are proud to have on our site.

Our white shea butter is 100% natural and is imported from Africa. It is raw, unprocessed and is grade A.
We offer this butter in 1/2, 4 & 8 ounce jars.
This all natural unrefined white shea is perfect for you that really don't care for the nuttish scent that our yellow butter has. From our

research we have found that yellow and white shea butter depends on the area of Africa the Karite Trees are located and the time of

harvest. This white shea butter does not have the nuttish scent that most all shea butter has and we guarantee that this butter is all

100% natural.

You will not find any finer shea butter on the web or for that matter, in any brick and mortar store. Try one of our 1/2 ounce jars and

sample the quality for yourself.

You can find this butter at:

Shea Butter has been prized for thousands of years for its excellent source of Vitamins A, E and F. Naturally highly concentrated, it is

the natural and economical choice to replenish your dry skin and help it TO feel softer.

It is also well known in helping with wrinkles and age lines without clogging pores or leaving your skin greasy or shiny. Shea is

excellent as a hair pomade to restore the luster and shine to dry, damaged and dull hair. Because of the natural vitamins this butter is

excellent to keep handy in the medicine cabinet for cuts or burns.

We use only natural shea butter. It is fair trade and harvested by women farmers producing the products to sustain their families. It has

been filtered for impurities & is the creamy butter extracted from the seeds (nut) of the Karite Tree.

Note to Customer: Because this shea butter is unrefined and is a natural product, color can be different from batch to bath. This in no

way diminishes the quality of the product.

We suggest that you first use this product on a small portion of your skin to make sure that you will not have an allergic reaction to

any of the natural butter. This product is derived from a nut, so rare individuals with an allergy to latex & nuts can have a reaction to

shea butter. This shea butter has a high fat content and this butter appeals to all skin types and is especially useful in mature or

chapped and dry skin.

Y'all take care until next we chat.
