Welcome 2011 !!

We always think of new beginnings and fresh starts when we start a new year. That is what will be happening at the store this weekend.....same store but fresh paint and a ton of redoes. I think it will be worth the effort , a little freshening up a place never hurts. The store is closed New Years Day but we will open again on Tuesday.

Happy New Year !!!

Last Tree Standing

That's right the only tree still left up in the shop. Before I left Christmas Eve I took all the trees down but this one. It will come down soon also but I ran out of time. The Christmas decorations are all in one room making it easier (I hope) to choose those after Christmas "needs".
All Christms is 40 % off so come in quickly to pick up a little something for next year.

Zipping Along !!

Don't you wish you had something to glide on like this little snowman? We are each busy getting ready for the big dayand the time is drawing near. My husband and I finished our gift buying tonight and now the packages will need to be wrapped. I have not started baking but somehow it all seems to get done.

Two Tier Wall Basket

Small touches to a wall basket speaks of the Christmas season. The berry spray and a long red stocking hanging over the handle make a simple statement.

Christmas Touches !!

Snowman in browns. Do we need to say anymore?? I think he has a nice prim look about him.

Stockings were hung??? Well not yet but we have a nice selection to choose from.

A little handmade lamb finds a resting place on the mantle among greenery and popcorn garland.

Snowmen In All Sizes

This tree is filled with snowmen ornaments.The little bags with snowmen make a nice way to present a gift card or a little treat. I love that Dianne attached a snowman top hat for the tree topper, it just finished the tree.

This guy is hanging on a cupboard door but he looks good propped in a bunch of icy greenery on a tabletop also.

Handmade Snowman pillow adds a bit of the season to the bed, sometimes a forgotten area.

Is this "his" home? Perhaps it could be. Actually this snowman with his santa hat is an ornament but doesn't he look fun in front of the little house? The minature wheelbarrow is handmade
and adds a little bit of whimsey to the setting.

Prim Groupings

The wall box makes a nice place to tuck small items. In a grouping they make more of a statement. The tiny dolls are handmade ,adding a little touch of color and softness to the otherwise hard surfaces.
The kitchen keep on the right shows off a collection of spoons and maybe a bowl or two.

Candle Bowl Fillers

These candle creations are by Primitiques. They are using odd pieces of wood and their special paint techniques to create these candle tucks. A little bit of this and that then viola a sweet little grouping to fill a bowl or tuck in a cupboard.
